comment Is a private messaging system really necessary?
Yes, I accounted for that and only included active, contributing users. This is also based on unique user ids.

comment Transitioning from flat comments to threaded comments
I was considering this, but it does not encourage a change in behavior. From a UX standpoint is it a good idea to offer multiple posting options? I feel the simpler and more consistent the posting is across the site the better the UX will be.

comment Transitioning from flat comments to threaded comments
Yes, I should really implement some sort of dismissible alert system to keep users informed of new changes.

comment Transitioning from flat comments to threaded comments
Existing comments will just become top level threads. I'm more concerned about the change in behavior.

comment Regular pagination vs. infinite scroll
I was able to solve this problem by floating the footer after the first set of results: github.com/Hawkers/scrollAppend

comment Is a private messaging system really necessary?
Thank you Brian, this is a good way to look at it. I just did this calculation and 20-25% of the active users over the past 3 months have used this feature. Maybe this is reason enough to continue to offer this functionality.

I think the real issue is whether or not they're willing to compromise the privacy of the messages in exchange for a public message.

Yes, that was the first place I posted this. I just wanted to get some outside opinions as well. Thank you.

Thank you Luke. One thing I plan to do is offer a dropdown to indicate the markup for each code snippet posted within a page. So there will be an "Add Code" button which will display a code box and above it will be a dropdown or input box to enter the language. This might work with tags, but I'd have to restrict it to one tag per code block.

comment Layout of multi-purpose status update box
Maybe I can overlay the labels over the icons, possibly the bottom right. I found a very nice set in which I can create 32x32 icons.

Thank you Jung. Now I just need to figure out how to make it look better.

comment Layout of multi-purpose status update box
Interesting idea, but each type of post has a unique form with particular elements.

comment How tall is too tall for a fixed header?
Let's say it's very similar to Google+ in function.
