Feature Request: Nested replies in Question threads

In discussion threads, replies are nested and conversations are easy to follow. However, in QUESTION threads, all replies to a reply are automatically hidden and require expanding. That and replies are limited to once, so nested conversations are impossible.

The result is if two people are trying to converse, you have a thread reply, then a comment reply (click to expand) then a new thread reply in response, and new comment reply (click to expand)...and so on. To read a conversation, the reader can only see one person talking by default and has to click to expand each reply from the second person.

For an active example, see my conversation with the OP of this question thread:

I request that comments and replies be treated the same in question threads as they are in discussion threads, to enable easy viewing and conversing around said question.


Thanks Samuel -- I think we're going to discover a lot of things in our different treatment of questions/discussions, and this is one of the things we'll be looking at.

I’ll second this request, although I do personally like the hidden replies to answers, especially if they involved a nested conversation. I think it would be nice to scroll through and see each answer, and if one interests you, you can expand the replies to see the whole conversation.

The best feature you can find for your teacher is a good narrative essay topics! He would appreciate it!
