Make comments easier to read Answered

UPDATE: With the recent changes to the comment layout, this isn't needed any more. Stylish is still fun to play with though. Check it out!

I find the comment threads to be a bit tough to follow. Definitely hard to scan when the threads get complicated anyway.

To make this easier for myself I made a Stylish script for Firefox. You can see the before and after pictures below. Try it out and let me know how it works for you.

Step 1 - Install Stylish for Firefox
Step 2 - Install the Lined Comments Script

Comments

The forums are retiring in 2021 and are now closed for new topics and comments.

Wait, if you're a pro user, you can do big text? NO FAIR!

I think this was an old feature.

I can copy paste that text, and use the same font though :)

Would it be easier to fix the site, so that it always does that. Oh well, awesome.

Personally, I think it makes the comments a bit to 'busy' if you know what I mean..

PS... so if we shout loudly enough about how good this is will the small css change required to add the vertical line be implemented? :D

Thank you!  I think one major contributor is when people have avatars without a defined border (with a white background) but this works great!

Excellent! I've been hoping for something like this since I first found Instructables...most forums I've seen already have something like this, and they're a lot easier to follow. Thanks for putting this out here!

I have a slight suggestion (Not about this script), but would it be possible to make a script, or make the site like this, where the comments are straight down, instead of one to the left, the one below it a bit to the right, the one after that more to the right, and ect?
Just a suggestion, thanks.
