Compact comments

We're using a comment-intensive page and it would be helpful to have the individual comments take up less real estate. We'd like to hide the users' avatars, preferably at the space level but globally would be okay.

A tougher requirement, I think: the comments are used to document production environment changes like so:

9/05/12 8:29AM: SUCCESSFUL_UPLOAD_Data_Deploy_Push_for_acme_for_B2C_PRO_has_Completed

9/05/12 8:08AM: SUCCESSFUL_UPLOAD_Data_Deploy_Push_for_widgetco_for_B2C_PRO_has_Completed

The desire is to be automatically sort display by the date-time at the beginning of the body text of the comment, rather than in the order the comment was entered. For example, if the above comments were already in and then a added

9/05/12 8:12AM: SUCCESSFUL_UPLOAD_Data_Deploy_Push_for_aylerenterprises_for_B2C_PRO_has_Completed

the new entry should display between the existing two.

Changing the comment real estate is achievable at the space level by Styling Confluence with CSS.

Try something like this:

.comment-user-logo {
   visibility: hidden;
#comments-section .comment {
   padding: 5px 5px 5px 5px; 

To change the sort order of comments, you would need to use custom HTML. See this blog post for more details on how to do this.
