    Request feedback without blurred comments

    Feature image for Request feedback without blurred comments

    In May, we shipped unbiased feedback as a tool to help designers get higher-quality feedback on their posts — this feature required viewers to leave their own comments before reading other people's feedback.

    However, in the past two months, we've heard from many of you that while this behavior was useful, it was only necessary in certain contexts. Most of the time, people are looking for feedback without needing to reduce bias or blur existing comments.

    Based on this feedback, we've split the act of requesting feedback and reducing bias in the comments into two separate toggles. This change gives post authors more control to reduce bias on certain posts where it makes sense.

    To account for new team members viewing old posts, we proactively remove the blurred comments behavior after one week.
