There are not enough conversations going on in comment sections. If there was a link that showed the latest comments, perhaps that would facilitate more conversations.

For one, how about notifying (optionally?) the previous posers in the thread, that it has a new comment.

I usually only browse /all/new, so I might miss a part of the discussion

Like a subscribe to that thread. That would be a good option to have.

that could be cool, get a notification if the comment count changes.

We have a comment feed on the todo list, like all/new but for new comments. handling the child comments could be tricky.

A 'sort by number of comments' option has been requested in past.
I think that would help with this.

I think a way to see which posts have new comments would also help. I camp out in new, so I sometimes miss conversations that happen later in a posts life.

But it's also 4th of July week. Slow for everything. Or did you mean longer term? There's not that many regulars here (I don't consider myself one).
