Content Lifecycle Patterns
Users can comment on a web page; comments are displayed linearly in chronological order (either most recent first, or oldest first). === What Problem Does This Solve === You want to elicit user feedback, opinion or knowledge without encouraging user-to-user interaction (and potentially arguments). === When to Use This Pattern === Use chronological comments when the date of comments is relevant (e.g. reviews for a hotel or restaurant, where changes might occur over time), or where users are likely to begin value-less arguments, either because the original content is controversial, or the audience is highly-charged and divided in opinion. === What's The Solution? === Disable the comment threading/nesting feature in your web platform. === Why Use This Pattern === Benefits of chronological comments include: *A clear order for readers to browse. *Fewer value-less arguments, disagreements, and "I agree" or "Me too" comments. === Examples Gallery === [[Image:Boing-boing-linear-comments.png|thumb|left|Boing Boing adopts a linear (non-nested) comment system.]] === Categories === [[Category:Comments]] [[Category:Social]]
