I, like everyone, despaired when I saw what was going to happen to my beloved comment function. There does appear to be hope on the horizon.

From Mark:

Note: The comment page redesign does not affect customized comment pages in S2, which can be enabled or disabled at http://www.livejournal.com/customize/options.bml. We are also planning to create a new S2 commenting style which will appear & function in the same way as the old site scheme commenting page to be included in the near future.

So, it sucks that they didn't decide to put the release back until they did this, but at least they've seen the need (finally) and are going to do something about it.

ETA: Oh, well. Hell.

I just wish he wasn't always such a dick when responding to upset users. Learn some tact, Motherfucker.

Oh, I agree. Customer support is supposed to be at least an attempt to appease the customer.

As long as they do it quickly, and it doesn't suck as much as most S2 comment pages do. I have to admit, I do like the new userpic thing. With the old one I almost never used anything but my default icon because I'm too lazy to remember what most of them are. *G*

I don't mind the pictures (thought it would be nice to have that optional for slower connections and I demand they put them in alphabetical order), but I am annoyed about the subject lines.

Apparently their order changes depending on what you've used most recently? From what I heard.

I really hope not because the ones I'm seeing at the top are ones I haven't used in a while.

Mine are in the order they were uploaded. You know, the one time I got the box to load.

I think you might be right.

Also, I really REALLY want 'thread' back as an option. This new style almost feels deliberately anti-RP.

Wow. That ETA is so anti-intuitive it makes me want to hit things.

I'm actually wondering about that one. I have several LJ cuts and none of the tags are lost behind them. At least so far.

this will get subject lines back, but won't work for basic users. Oh, LJ. We used to be so close.
