Comments - but on which entry?

On the old site, when notified about a comment on one of my entries, the thumbnail for the entry appeared alongside the comment notification, so I knew where to go. On the new site that information does not appear with the comment notification. Am I missing something? Is that to be another future development?

Hi guys. As someone below has kindly pointed out, there is an icon to view the image that is commented (found on the right hand side of the comment alert!). However, your feedback here will certainly be taken into account!

In terms of editing comments... I this is a change we are going to try and implement again quickly!

Kind regards

Agreed. There is a link to the image, but a thumbnail would make if much more useful (and make it big enough to use on tablet or phone).

I'm baffled too. In the list of comments (on blips where I am following comments), there's no easy way of telling which blip each comment is for (the title doesn't cut it, especially as some blippers don't use titles). I'm assuming I'm missing something.

I would much rather see the thumbnail of the entry that the comment was referring to (as it was before), than to see the commenter's avatar. The commenter's name is already included, so I really don't have a need to see the avatar.

It is very time consuming to have to click on "entry", in each comment, to see which entry they are referring to...
Would love to see this one changed. But most everything else seems nice.

I totally agree with Ellisroger. It was much more useful and sensible when the thumbnail of the entry being commented on was next to the comment.

It also applies to entries I've left comments on; it's much harder now to figure out which entry the person is leaving a 'reply comment' to. I don't usually want (or have the time) to go back to their entry.

Agree with Ross. Having to click to see which entry is being commented on is a nuisance. It seems like it should be easy to use a thumbnail of it instead, to give a visual clue.

Thanks for looking at the editing of comments, much appreciated by this dodgy typist! I would agree with other posters here about the benefits of a thumbnail of which blips people are commenting on, several of my subscribers tend to have little time to comment every day, but from time to time will set aside time to go through journals, and comment on as many as 10 of my blips from over the last few months, so it can be hard to remember the details of each blip, and the thumbnail would really help.

Yes, I found the icon on the side but it is a hassle to have to click on that. It would be better if the icon was displayed like it is on the android app. Very confusing at the moment not knowing what the comment is on.

I've now found the little icon which will take me to the blip that's been commented on :-) but as has been said it would be better to have a little thumbnail of that blip instead of the commenter's avatar. There are far too many avatars about in my opinion, we don't need them!

I find this one of the most annoying of the new features – the thumbnail next to notifications/comments should be of the image it relates to, not the avatar of the person making the comment. Having to click through to another page just to see what on earth they are talking about is frustrating and time consuming (especially for those of us not blessed with super fast internet). Please fix this!

Thanks for changing this Blipcentral, much appreciated. Any chance of making notifications the same, as the stars and faves are still by user avater rather than blip thumbnail.
