Move a Comment between Cards

Trello is awesome for organising collaborations. But invariably people I collaborate with reply to a topic on a different card.

I see its possible to move cards between boards (how cool is that). If it could similarly be possible to move comments between cards, would be massive help to keep the conversations on track.

@Back2Front what functionality are you trying to implement beyond simply copying the text of the comment and pasting it somewhere else?

I want to be able to move comments between cards.

Copying and pasting text into blockquotes is what I'm doing at the moment to keep discussions on-topic. But its still confusing and messy.

I agree.  I'd like to preserve the timestamp of the comment when it's moved to another card, so the sequence of events is accurate.  Essentially click & drag a comment.  As opposed to copying an older comment from the wrong card and pasting with today's time stamp to the correct card.

I would also like to have this functionality.

To add to the above: manual copy-pasting won't preserve the original commenter.

Plus if they have some markdown in their comment, either manual copy-paste would lose that formatting, or I'll have to manually reproduce it, which is a waste of time. If there are links converted to titles (new feature), I'll have to right click and copy the actual URL. If there are many URLs, I'll have to repeat that with each.

And overall, manual copy paste is an ugly solution by definition.
