The SEF urls are also working too, however the discussion boards still doesn\'t work if it is set to public. I\'ve been fixing discussion boards bugs all day. There are just about 9-10 task items left so we can have the beta release ready.
It is technically possible to create nested comments, but at this point we've decided to keep it simple. I think if people need to branch out they can always start a new topic, this will also help people to stay on topic most the time.
Many larger networks also have decided to stay with simple commenting as well, such as: facebook, flickr, youtube, buddypress., and Digg.com.
@Peter try to keep things as simple as you can, the more features you add, the most complex the solutions to the problem is, the less elegant the overall thing gets. Elegance in solutions is much of an underrated topic, but i think is crucial. Elegance is about beauty of solutions. to me elgeance is not also about what something does but also to what it doesn't do. Its like a museum, the importance of what you see inside is because of what is not on the wall, otherwise it will be a wholesale, is bacuse there are choices. This is even more obvious in social networks, where every network try to do anything, looking all the same...is about what anahita don't do that make it so special...I love anahita, such a beauty!
