Replies are put into separate text boxes

When replying to a comment it creates a separate text box.  Is it possible to have the replies go into the same box as the original comment and move to the top.  This will keep the conversation together instead of disjointed.

Not that I know of, but each comment has its own link in the date, so if you click reply and then link to the comment you're replying to, its easier for someone who is following see what exactly is being replied to. 

To grab a comments link, just click the time/date stamp on a comment.

@Brian_Tharp one thing you can do to improve the continuity is to interleave your replies by prefixing lines you're replying to with ">" to indent (you can use multiples to indent further like >>) So for example if I wanted to reply to your comment and interleave the replies in Trello it would look like:

> When replying to a comment it creates a separate text box.

Yep, that's how it's intended.

> Is it possible to have the replies go into the same box as the original comment and move to the top.

You could edit the existing comment in some cases, but it would be pretty clunky.

> This will keep the conversation together instead of disjointed.

Why not use interleaved replies instead? :)
