We do actually have a boilerplate template for rude comments, not always accompanied by a suspension. I participate in a site where people are very sensitive about... well, everything. Is not a very useful place to start from, if you're assuming everyone is oversensitive to start with. I'd also add that comments are never meant to be permanent artifacts. ...

I've actually talked about this a fair bit - and it's something I'd love. My reasoning is a little different, that it's a proportionate, directed way to discourage a problem behaviour when there is nothing else wrong and asking nicely doesn't help, somehow without maliciousness. A moderator message or other gentle reminder is still going to be the first ...

While there is some difference between stars and comment upvotes, the benefit of retaining the information about comment upvotes while transferring them to chat outweighs the drawbacks: the information is not lost in the first place. the comment votes are an essential part of a [supposedly healthy] discussion which happened to be in the comments, and if ...

The Charcoal team has developed a great tool called Blaze that does exactly this. If you access https://charcoal-se.org/blaze/#site=money you'll see something like this: Upon choosing "comments", you'll get the list of comments like this: As you can see, it allows to auto refresh every certain seconds, so it is a great tool to monitor what is ...

There's no view that displays the most recent comments. However, this information is available through the API, via https://api.stackexchange.com/2.2/comments?order=desc&sort=creation&site=money, even without an app. If you want a nice, graphical view of it, see fedorqui's answer. For Meta Stack Overflow, the boson bot has been used to repost all ...

"Trigger words" is inaccurate; there is a regular expression that, if matched, will allow 1-flag deletion. That expression does contain words, and some are included in such a way as to match if that word is matched anywhere within a comment's text - even in a name... ...However. It is a complicated expression, or at least it was as if the start of ...

Every time, when moderator converts my upvoted comment into chat, it feels like I lost something important. Community votes is like money here, it's just not nice to refuse it. According to our CoC, we should find a way to not disturb our participants with that sort of losing.

In general, (when) is it better to [...] Going through one at a time. list progress in the form of comments Not recommended, unless it's a very trivial answer to someone else's comment (e.g. "No, X didn't help, but thanks for the suggestion."). question edits This is preferred. However, edits should not be called out explicitly (e.g. with &...

Personally, I'm a fan of "showing your work" - and updating your question substantially with what you've done is a great example of it. It means folks are not going to waste their time suggesting something you know dosen't work (and others can follow along in your footsteps). Its a good way to roll comments into your post. In this situation I ended ...

Suspensions are not the first tool a moderator uses; they generally are the last tool. There are exceptions for blatant offensive conduct or very elaborate schemes to circumvent the rules, but in general you get some kind of feedback about your behaviour before you get a suspension. The point where you get the feedback that your behaviour is problematic in ...

My main point for improvement: "Comment everywhere" isn't "everywhere" to a new StackExchange user, or an infrequent user like me. To me, I thought "everywhere" meant every site. I suggest "everywhere" is misleading and therefore isn't the correct word. Too hard as it is (yes, I've now learned about the spam problem),...

What if moved comments retained upvotes, and they would look like upvotes? Re-using the star feature as an easy way out sounds... well, it's a hack, let's be honest about it. What about spending a bit more of development time and implementing chat message upvotes for chat rooms created from moved post comments? Stars would still keep their original meaning, ...
