Journal Area question

I just started making a journal of stuff I've already done from old pictures. I noticed that there is a counter indicating number of Comments mad on someone's journal that your reading...indicating that you can make comments on journal entries of others. I don't see a way to do this. Reading through some of the other journals, I see that some folks do show to have comments made on ther journals but, I don't see where I can read them.
Is this an old feature that's no longer available? If so, that's fine. I'm just curious by nature

I don't think you can leave comments in your journal only in your photo album, but I could be wrong.

Yeah, it's a feature that was taken away a while ago.

I thought it might have been removed, since I couldn't find it.
Thanks

Yes, it was removed. It wasn't being used enough to justify its inclusion. However, suggestions have been made for some sort of journal commenting system integrated into the board or the Lounge.

Thanks for the reply, Jon. I don't see it as a "have to have" thing. More than likely, I would send a PM to someone if I had a comment. If I had to Admin, I probably wouldn’t re-add it. It’s just another thing to keep up with that doesn’t really add that much value.
I just couldn’t figure out where the function resided.
Later,
Jon

Would I get shot, pilloried, ostracized and branded if I mentioned again that I miss the journal comments?

I was just thinking that, now that we're going to be designating the Lounge as automotive-only discussion, we have a good solution for integrating Journal comments into the Lounge. Each Journal entry can have a "read/submit comments" link. When the link is clicked upon, the user is taken to either:

1. a new thread form, to enter a comment (if the specific entry has no comments yet)

2. a page displaying the discussion of the comment (if the specific entry already has a comment)

Now to push my luck... are the old comments gone?

The data's still in the database, just not accessible via the comments link. Even if we completely decided to never have comments (which I can't imagine), I'd still keep the data; who knows when it might be useful to us.

BTW, I've been reviewing the PostgreSQL vs. MySQL issue, per your suggestion, just to be sure. It's always hard to sift through the "benchmarking" research to see who's doing the real unbiased analyses. PostgreSQL does have the advantage of a more distributed open source development environment, but from a performance perspective, MySQL seems to be the winner. There's also the issue of MySQL two-pronged commercial and GPL license, vs. PostgreSQL's BSD license. It's largely a moot point anyway, since we know MySQL is going to be installed by default on everyone's server anyway, but still beneficial to research.
