I notice some people seem able to reply directly to comments (ie the replies are threaded with the comment they're a reply to) but I can't see how to do this - there's no obvious "reply" button or anything showing for me on the comments, only the box at the bottom of the page to make a general comment. Am I missing something, or is it just not working in my browser (IE6)?

Hey, I looked at this site for the first time with IE6 and you're right.... sort of. There IS a Reply link below each message, it's just invisible. If you move the mouse around it will turn to the hand cursor. It is located directly below each comment inside the "box" to the left of the arrows and up/down rating things. It is left aligned with the comment text. If you can't figure it out, put your mouse over the yellow star thing and move it perfectly left until you get to the left margin of the next (not the avatar). Hope I didn't totally confuse you.

That would be "left margin of the TEXT", not NEXT.

Wow, thanks - I'd never have found that without your info! :-) Seems it only works on original comments, not replies to those comments? Can't find it on your comment to replying to myself to keep it at least in the right thread.

Well, I think that's normal. I have never seen a Reply button on a reply. I guess they don't want nested comments 20 levels down. LOL

Hehe true indeed. Thanks for your help, I've been wondering for ages how to reply! :-)
