Next Silent Hill game should be a meta-reboot of Silent Hill 2 about a guy who can't let go of his emotional trauma about how badly the franchise has been treated and so descends into a world of hazy madness where he keeps playing the ever-mutating game he's in until he's finally happy, which he never is

I'm also used to being really close to the metal with MeFi which I know is a much more outlier position for the average person, so I know I have a more specific kind of frustration with opaque or ambiguous UI and moderation/functional transparency than most folks, and I'm sure that factors into my bogglement some. But still, this is just...broken?

I'm used to finding comment section mechanics outside of MetaFilter frustrating for design philosophy reasons; I dislike nesting comments, I dislike auto-collapsing nests/branches, I strongly dislike algorithmically selected auto-collapsing. But this is the first time in clear memory that I hit a site where on top of all that stuff just didn't actually end up displaying even when you jumped through all the hoops. It's bizarre!

NextDoor journey, chapter seven: welcome to UI hell. Have been trying to figure out why a comment that wasn't deleted also isn't visible in a thread; sanity-checked with a lead, they confirmed no deletions and also I keep getting "thanks" reactions on the comment so some people can see it...but I can't! ND collapses threads and you have to manually click to view branches of additional comments replies, but expanding everything in the thread shows...72 of a purported 76 comments.
