Comment nesting?! - The online computery journal thingy of a turtle

What the hell happened to comment nesting?!

Up until today, when I looked at a comment thread on a LJ post, each comment would be indented a small amount more than the comment it was in reply to. Now, none of them are being indented and it's hard for me to work out what's a reply to what! Is this just a glitch that will be fixed soon, or is it some new setting and I've got to hunt down what page to go to to change it?

EDIT: Switching to S2 has brought back comment nesting. A few people report that they can still see nested comments in S1, but damned if I can figure out how. And since I'm leaving town tomorrow and am busy doing laundry and packing today, switching to S2 will suffice.

Frankly, the fact that I didn't want to switch to S2 is not all that important. I didn't *want* to not want to switch; I only resisted switching for superficial reasons.

Testing: this is a reply comment. It *should* be indented a little past its parent comment.

Yet it does not currently appear to be. BTW, I'm still using S1, if that means anything.

I'd say it's time to pick a new style in S2.

Looks good to me in S1, though.

Sheesh, all right then. I knew S1 was deprecated, I didn't know it was going to start *rotting*.

(Actually, now I'm not sure why I didn't want to use S2 in the first place. Possibly because it wouldn't give me mouseover popup text on the icons so I could see the icon keywords. Is that customizable?)

I never switched, comments look fine, but yeah, KT's layout I'm just not used to. I can wait, hearing about Morphinecon is higher up on the list than getting KT's layout fixed.

I continue to use S1 myself, although when I look at specific posts I view it in whatever style the person who posted it uses. I'm not sure changing the style is the best way to address a display issue, especially if others can view the same post in the original style and view it with normal indentation.

Well... switching to S2 worked.

And I'm going on a trip tomorrow, so I'm busy packing and whatnot. So, S2 it is, at least for now.

Switching to S2 has also solved another problem I had: I couldn't find where to change the titles of my LJ ("The online computery journal thingy of a turtle") and friendslist ("Things people KT likes said"). When I switched to S2, there were the settings, front and center, with 'edit' links.

It seems to be "normal" to me, KT.

As a personal note, I'm surly about both S1 and S2 and view nearly everything on LJ with an "?format=light" appended. Does the problem persist if you flip over to light format temporarily ?

Man, at this point I don't even *care*. :} Especially since I just spent half an hour looking for my ~!@#$%^ conbadges (FINALLY found'em!)
