I am currently looking at 2 web-based bug tracking applications. On their
bug view pages, both of them have a block of meta-data information (summary,
severity, assignee etc.) at the top portion. Below this portion, they both
list the comments/updates which were entered by various users.
Here's the catch: one of them lists the comments in chronological order, the
other one in reverse chronological order. I personally think chronological
listing makes the most sense as:
1. I know exactly where to scroll my browser window to find the latest
comment (the very end).
I'd like to ask the list about anonymous comments. I'm sure the
collective wisdom of the list has plumbed the question, figured out the
fors and againsts of registration for commenting and has opinions. This
for me is coming out of a real-world situation with Found|Read, a site
that uses PublicSquare which requires everyone to register or log in to
leave a comment.
