reddit now takes better care of its children

We try to be pretty responsive to user feedback, so I wasn't entirely surprised when Steve IMed me for some design suggestions on the [+] and [-] buttons you can now see to the right of every comment score and time.

It turned out the reddit community was pretty pleased and a self post about the new feature rocketed up the front page yesterday. There were still a few bugs to work out, but everything should be collapsing and expanding now with ease. No more orphaned or hidden children.

This seemed like an appropriate logo for today not just because of the recent feature ("OMG, new features!") but because it's also my mom's birthday.

Happy birthday, mom!
