Idea – A better comment field by Wordpress.com

    The Problem:
    People tend to forget to check the boxes at the comment-field.

    Result:
    This is not favourable for them, for us users or for WordPress.com´s partners, since most of us want a dialogue.
    People using WordPress.com feel ignored and forgotten, when in fact people are only distracted by other things instead, for example conversations from other social media about fluffy kittens or other comment services that do provide good dialogue.

    Idea:
    I suggest that WordPress.com check the boxes by default or have this possibility in the settings so that people instead have to unfill them if they do not want a dialogue or just have to ignore the e-mails that comes with it?

    Also, may I suggest to make these e-mails more appealing by default so that people do accept the dialogue to continue

    …or replace them with some kind of anti-bot check instead of confirmation-emails? ;-)

    This could for example be a question and an answer that every user can individualize in the settings? Ex. “The swedish flag is blue and?”

    …and here on the forum I can see that the box is actually checked. Great, since of course I do want to see the answers! :-)

    The blog I need help with is vetenskapligapartiet.wordpress.com.

    I do not want to see a comment notifications default set to compel me or any of my followers to receive email updates on posts. During the brief period of time that was the case here there were so many complaints that it was immediately reverted back.
