Allow developers to disable comments!

There should be a way for developers to disable comments and leave a generic comment. Like "Go to this site instead to leave bug reports.". This feature should be available for us on the manage addon page.

Sometimes we just want to redirect everyone to a particular site. For example I want all my addon users to post bugs on my github issue tracker. It makes things easier for me to parse and fix those bugs on the commits.

Curse has this feature why doesn't this website? I've seen a few addons with comments disabled but it looks like you have to contact a developer or something. This feature should be given as an option on the manage addon page.

If theres some AddOns you'd like us to disable comments on for you we can do that now but you're right we should add this as an option as well as making sticky comments.

It's quite a few, but this really should be added as an option for developers. It shouldn't rely on moderators to perform something simple as disabling comments.

Okay it keeps happening. This feature really should be implemented. It shouldn't be that hard it's just a toggle to enable/disable comments.

Please close BagSync comments and add this comment for me.

Comments are hidden when disabled. That wasn't always the case but many authors requested that.

Like I said before I agree. I will eventually work on a option for you to do it on your own.

Many thanks Dolby for your assistance in this. Also thanks for taking the option into consideration.
