I am following the progress of games published by Cambridge Games Factory (for obvious reasons).

Glory to Rome has just been reprinted, and I want to see the ratings and (more importantly) comments from the game's newest players. However, since GtR already has 776 comments spotting the most recent ones is nigh on impossible.

If ratings and comments could be sorted by submission date, this would be a big help, and I'm sure not just to me. Any popular game with lots of existing comments may be published in a new edition, and the newest comments (which would be most likely about the newest edition) would be lost among the older ones.

I'm sorry if this has been brought up before. I did some searching and found requests for average ratings based on the most recent ratings, but couldn't see anything about recent comments.

Agreed that that would be a nice feature to have, but since they rarely seem to add such useful features, you can use the XML interface to pull all the currently available comments, and then periodically grab a new set and difference the sets to find new/changed comments.

FYI, this has been suggested several times. Aldie's post in this first thread is the first time an admin has ever acknowledged the request.

Dave,

What's the purpose of that kinda comment? Honestly, it serves to do nothing 'cept undermine Aldie's morale, which I can assure you isn't something you should want if you use this site regularly... (and apparently you do use it regularly since 2002)

In the context of this thread, probably nothing. Given that I have watched this request pop up several times - once with heavy user support - without once being acknowledged (e.g., Is this something you wanted to add or not? Was it not as easy to implement as it seemed?), I think you would forgive me a bit of shock & awe. From my PoV, not having it acknowledged as such for so long as had a non-zero effect on my morale. You care about me too, right?

FWIW, note that I stated it factually.

And now, sorting comments by date is possible:

Collection sorting by date

Thanks Dan!
