Sticking with something similar to what we currently have; single layer threads.
Ian is about to start working on the comment system. We want to aim for Manifold Markets to be able to facilitate community and discussion similar to other social media platforms. I've listed a couple of posibilities but if you have examples of systems that other websites incorporate that will work well please add them!
