    Latest Comments

    Under a member's profile, I have a tab which shows the member's "Latest Comments".

    How should this be calculated?

    Option #1:
    If I do it by "Last 10 Comments", then if someone hasn't posted in ages, you'll get ancient history!


    Option #2:
    And if I do it by "Comments in Last 7 Days", then if someone posted 10 days ago, it wouldn't show anything!


    Which do you think is better?


    Sincerely,


    Debbie

    Maybe a combination of the two? For example, show the last ten comments, but only those posted in, say, the last three months.

    Just a thought.

    If somebody hasn't posted in ages, then it's much less likely that anybody will be looking at their profile in the first place, so I wouldn't think it would matter much. And for anybody who does look at the profile, it's probably more useful to see that they made their last comment nine months ago, than just to see that they haven't commented in the last week.

    I like you idea (highlighted in bold).

    Good point!

    just make a button saying recent comments, and if it`s ancient history, there should be a line saying no recent posts in the last month, showing the last 10 most recent comments, something like that.
