Depends on what information you would like to capture and how fast you want the user to leave the comment.

  1. Most blogs have 3 input fields. Name, Website, Comment and of course a button Add Comment.
  2. If the user is logged in, just a comment field

In my case, when user fails/pass/block/na a test case, He wants to enter some comment depending on the situation. It will be plain text. –  nitish Dec 4 '12 at 13:57
    
then just a filed where the user could leave a comment –  Igor-G Dec 4 '12 at 14:00
    
I was confused in terms of layout, where it should it come. Do you think under the title- 130: Restrict..., is a good idea? –  nitish Dec 4 '12 at 14:04
    
Depends what you want users to comment on, the whole bug or individual steps. But usually the comments are at the bottom of the screen. I wouldn't suggest restricting the comments to 130 letters, the user might not be able to describe the bug in detail if you will. –  Igor-G Dec 4 '12 at 14:09

That is right approach to follow, comments are at the Bug level, for steps the comments comes under each step. Yes, i should not limit characters. :) –  nitish Dec 4 '12 at 14:12

Simply make space inside your layout for the comment. Just like what happens on this site if you comment on a question or answer.

Responsive and fluid: I mean that, it comes with a very subtle animation and when needed (evoked). Does not hinder main task. –  nitish Dec 4 '12 at 14:06
