Several family members are now Instructable members so occasionally we like to check and see what each other has said about an Instructable. On every occasions when we go to the Instructable comment section we can not find each other's comments. To double check we swapped member names and passwords but as feared we could only see the comments for the member names we were logged under. Ironically we can see all (?) comments by other members. I logged this as a bug and sent several emails to info@instructables.com but nothing, no response and no reply. Has anyone else experienced this trouble or have any idea of the cause?

He might have been, you don't know because you didn't let him answer. and why are we reffering to dombeef as a he? we don't know that.

Are you looking at the same steps? If you leave a comment on one step, it only shows up on that step.

I believe that it would also show up if you clicked "View all Steps", right?

Ah yes, I remember when I first started, I left a comment on a step after the intro, and then I couldn't find it later .... good point.

How soon after the person has posted are you looking for the comment? and also clearing the browser cache might work.... (Ctrl+Shift_Del for firefox) and something under internet options in IE. ;-)

-that's all I can think of. =)
