New “Best” comment sorting system

Way back in Oc­to­ber 2009 Red­dit in­tro­duced their “Best” com­ment sort­ing sys­tem. We’ve just pul­led those changes into Less Wrong. The changes af­fect only com­ments, not sto­ries.

It’s good. It should sig­nifi­cantly im­prove the visi­bil­ity of good com­ments posted later in the life of an ar­ti­cle. You (yes you) should adopt it. It’s the de­fault for new users.

See http://​​­​​2009/​​10/​​red­dits-new-com­ment-sort­ing-sys­tem.html for the de­tails.
