    More detail on the new notes feature in Tripwire.

    - The "add a note" textarea grows vertically as needed.

    - The textarea is smaller and the Save button is hidden until the textarea gets focus, keeping the initial page uncluttered.

    - Users' gravatars are used to add personality to the conversation.

    - Note content has simple formatting applied (like paragraphs) and URLs become links.

    - It's extremely simple for now. We'll see how people use it and improve based on feedback.

    Like the idea of things staying compact until they are focused/use up their space. Looking very slick!

    Thanks, Adam. To be fair, the behavior is based on Facebook comments. It works well!

    Annotations are always great (imagine if there were a patient site that allowed you to ... nevermind) but I wonder if it would be better to hold off on these until there was a strong organizing principle for the comments.

    I suggested centering the errors around the form itself (v. models or particular requests) which I think would serve as a good basis for comments such as these. Otherwise, I worry that they just get lost in the onslaught of data.

    Just my $.02. You guys are kicking ass, keep up the great work.

    You could be right. We don't really have the concept of a form -- the closest thing is the URL, but that could be posted to from different forms. Some simple aggregation of comments based on common model or action might do the trick.
