If the "Joke" label is active on a comment, it decreases its weighting in the relevance sorting by a factor of 0.5: the vote weight on any comment labelled as a joke will be halved. The effect of "Joke" labels is not cumulative.
#### "Noise" label
The "Noise" label is for comments which make no difference to the discussion. These might include remarks such as "This^" or "Thanks." or "Good news!" or "This sucks."
The "Noise" label is not visible on comments.
If the Noise label is active on a comment, it will cause the comment to be sorted below replies with no and Offtopic labels, acting as if it had -2 total votes. Also, the comment will be autocollapsed, so that it is hidden (all its child comments will also be hidden). Collapsed comments can be manually expanded and viewed.

### Comment highlights
* Blue left-hand border = Exemplary comment
Some comments have a distinctive "stripe" down their left edge, indicating that there is something special about that comment. The colors may vary depending on the theme you are using (and if you're logged in, you can look at [the theme preview page](/settings/theme_previews) to see examples of most for a specific theme), but in general:
* Black left-hand border = Original Poster's (OP's) comment
* Red left-hand border = New comment
* Brown left-hand border = Linked comment
* Blue stripe = Comment labeled as "Exemplary" by other users
* Red stripe = New comment
* Purple stripe = Comment posted by you
* Yellow stripe = "Target" comment that was linked to specifically
* Thicker stripe, same color as text = Original Poster's (OP's) comment

### Notifying users
You can send a notification to another user and draw their attention to a comment, without replying to one of their topics or comments. To do so, type @username in the comment. /u/username and u/username will also work. This will send a notification to the other user's inbox. There is no limit on the number of users you can tag in a single comment.

You can choose to always open a page (linked item, comments) in either a new tab or the current tab. This is determined by your user settings.
Go to your user page by clicking on your username at the top of the sidebar on the righthand side of the screen. In the sidebar of your user page, there is a link that says "Settings" under the Misc heading. Click on that to go to your User Settings page.

On your User Settings page, look for a heading that says "**Open links in new tabs**". This has five options under it:
* Topic links to other websites
* Links to text topics and comments
* External links in topic, comment, and message text
* Links to groups on Tildes
* Links to users on Tildes
If you tick the check box next to an option, this will automatically open those items in a new tab every time (if you tick next to "Topic links", all links will open in a new tab when you click on them). If the the check box is not ticked, those items will open in the current tab every time. You can set each option independently, or all the same.

### Disable collapsing old comments when returning to a topic
### Marking new comments
By default, when you return to the comments page for a topic that has new comments since your last visit, only the new comment(s) and their parents will be expanded, with all of the old comments collapsed.
You can choose to highlight new comments in a thread (comments which have been posted since the last time you looked at the thread). By default, new comments are not marked in any way.
If you prefer to have all the comments stay expanded, you can un-check the "Collapse old comments when I return to a topic" option.
Go to your user page by clicking on your username at the top of the sidebar on the righthand side of the screen. In the sidebar of your user page, there is a link that says "Settings" under the Misc heading. Click on that to go to your User Settings page. Alternatively, click on [this link](https://tildes.net/settings).
On your User Settings page, look for a heading that says "**Configure marking new comments**". Click on this link to open the settings page for marking new comments.
There are two settings here:
* Track my last visit to each topic's comments and mark new comments
* Collapse old comments when I return to a topic
If you tick the "Track my last visit to each topic's comments and mark new comments" option, new comments will be identified in two ways:
* On your front page, under each topic, there is a description which says "X comments". Next to this, an extra description will show "(X new)", to tell you how many new comments have been posted under that topic since you last viewed it.
* In the topic page, new comments will be marked with a red line on their left border.
If you *also* tick the "Collapse old comments when I return to a topic" option, all old comments will be collapsed, so that only new comments are visible. You can restore any old comments by clicking on the "+" button on the comment stub.
You can always expand collapsed comments by clicking on the "+" button on the comment stub, or the "Expand all" button at the top of the comments section.
