Hi

Suggestion: Maybe there could be a way to open up the front page news section to allow people to reply like usual, the replies form part of the comments when viewing from the front page.
I'd like to comment but would be much easier through the forum.

Feel free to say no :p

Easier in what way? (Just trying to understand what you would see as the benefit of this)

also a bit confusing. the commenting system is already tied to the forum, comments count as forum posts already.

maybe the extra formatting options that the front page doesn't give? that'd be the only thing i can think of

I've been pushing for this for ages, basically the same way macrumors works.

Sorry for the late reply.
Yes, easier to reply with formatting. Sometimes the comments can get a little middles with people quoting someone but it being in the wrong place, sometimes it's hard to follow what people have written.
Just a thought, always happy to visit Neowin whatever the site is like :)
