Today, we started beta testing a new discussions format on several sites (Deadspin, Kotaku, and Jalopnik). Let's check out what's different?

The most noticeable change is the prominence of discussions by the author. These will appear right after the post, before other discussion threads

You can also see a curated view of discussions from any user by clicking on the person's name.


Under "Other Threads" you'll see a familiar view of blocks of conversations, sorted by thread. Clicking on a block will show you a curated view of replies moderated by the user who started the conversation.

We'll be doing further beta testing, gathering your feedback and rolling these changes out across Kinja in the coming weeks. Let us know what you think in the replies below.
