  • Comment langth 2,000 characters

    2) is it possible to add a char count so that we know the extent of editing required?

    3) is there any way to submit a comment and have a tick box to be able to submit a second comment to appear contiguous to the first, without other people submitting comments in between? (Perhaps holding the first comment in abeyance, until the continuation is submitted?)
