anyone else have AO3 comment issue?

November 16th, 2011 (03:27 pm)

When replying to comments, AO3 now reloads the page and kicks me up to the top, forcing me to scroll down to comments again, etc.

This'll be a pain in the ass for Yuletide. Anybody else have this happen, or just me?

ETA: Oh, crap, it's even worse. It not only kicks you back to the top and forces you to open comments again, it kicks you back to *the first chapter,* even if you're answering to comments in chapter three. Ugh.

Huh, I just replied to a comment without a problem. I'm using Firefox and one of the new skins. Uh, something with blues in the name. Almost Blues? Just Blues? Something like that.

Although I was replying to a story with only one chapter, so that might be the difference. I don't know if I have a story with multiple chapters that has a comment. Lemme go make a test.

Hmm, no, that wasn't it either. I commented on chap. 2 of one of my stories and replied to that without a problem.

Thanks for checking! On DW, melannen reports she's had the same problem. So it's not just me, but whatever it is doesn't seem to have a site-wide effect. Very odd.

This has always been the case for me. I respond to comments from my ao3 inbox instead.

..you think it's bad with three chapters, try TWENTY-SEVEN chapters. Heh.
