Some stories/topics on the main page end up having multiple stories within. I think it would be nice to be able to have a comments section for individual items instead of having to mix discussions in the main topic. Maybe have a comments link next to each story link? Not sure how doable this is, just tossing it out there!
I'm afraid that, regardless of whether it's deemed practical, it's technically difficult because of the way a story ID is also the thread ID for the associated news comments. Story IDs are sequential so it would take a real kludge to map each to a variable number of thread IDs, as the same board ID/thread ID pair is also used in the other forums.
