Why aren't there link to new comments on MetaTalk? July 13, 2001 3:27 PM   Subscribe

This is less a bug and more of a question about an inconsistency between MetaFilter and MetaTalk. Namely, that the new posts (i.e., 53 comments (3 new)) announcement is a link to the new posts on MeFi but not on MeTalk. Why the difference?

The new/old system in metatalk is totally fux0red. I rewrote the MetaFilter one a few months back and never bothered to update the MetaTalk one.

There's a lot of old code in here, and it's quite a bit more of a pain to copy things over and make them work.

oh, and i know it makes metatalk much less useful. I know I miss a lot of things in older threads because I can't see any indication of the presence of new comments.
