  1. I'm still adjusting to the new format and have some questions. How do we comment on a thread? Just reply to author? And is there anyway to see other people's comments? (Or maybe I only looked at threads without comments . . .)

  3. Rosalyn - To comment, just click Reply on the main post in the thread.

    And if other people have commented, it should show up in the thread. You left your comment earlier, before there were many comments, so I'm guessing that's why you didn't see any.

  5. The new format is incredible! Simple to use and no need to scroll through long lists of posts or comments. The only minor hiccup is that once you click reply you can no longer see the pitch you're commenting on. I just copy-pasted each pitch as a work around to that and deleted what I'd pasted when done. Other than that, perfection! And such an improvement. :)

    1. P.S. Never mind! :) Just noticed the pitch shows up at the bottom of the screen when you comment on it.

  6. Abby, thanks for your response. I agree with Kimberly--this new format is much easier to use!
