Expiration warning for feed account comments sections
Display a notice in the comments section of feed accounts about the 14 day expiration of the entry. This would serve as a reminder that all things are ephemeral, and if the user wanted their comment saved, they could go to the original (settings allowing) or manually save it somewhere.
There's been some previous discussion around comments on feed accounts. Currently, comments are enabled on feed accounts as a courtesy to Dreamwidth users who would like a forum, however ephemeral, to discuss the feed amongst themselves, particularly when the source does not allow comments (such as XKCD).
However, it's not immediately obvious to someone who is unfamiliar with feed accounts that the comments won't be sent back to the original source of the feed, and that the comments will vanish when the feed entries vanish after 14 days.
I suggest a notice, to be displayed on the entry page above the comments section (so it's visible to readers and to people using quickreply), and on the reply page. It would say something like: Only feed entries from the last 14 days are displayed on Dreamwidth. Comments left on feed entries will not be saved after the entry is gone.
(People using quickerreply from their reading pages probably wouldn't have that notice visible.)
Users would be given enough information to decide for themselves whether to try to leave their comment on the source, or whether it's more appropriate for the comments on the feed. It could feel unnecessary or annoying to users who are already aware, and would introduce another little delay for screen reader users to try to skip over.
(If implemented cleverly, this could possibly be reused to support comment policy notices for communities and personal journals.)
Should be implemented as-is.
Should be implemented with changes. (please comment)
Shouldn't be implemented.
(I have no opinion)
