Feature request - comments to any Bible verse chosen

I was writing three years ago about this feature request.
Without that I find Scripture Forge almost unusable. A person from the community who checks the translation, usually has opinions about how are certain Bible verses translated - but presently cannot write his opinion. Cannot add comments to any translated Bible verse. It is only possible to answer some pre-made questions.
Thank you.

Hi Peter, you are correct, the current Community Checking tool is a web way of following the structured way of doing community checks as recommended by translation advisors. It is very specific to that stage of the translation process. Through this tool you can only gather opinions like you are after by specifically asking for them in a more generic question, e.g. “Please give us any other thoughts you have about the translation of this passage?”

However we also recognize there are other ways of doing community checking and other opportunities to gather community feedback during the translation process. So we are currently working on the ability to add Paratext Notes by people invited from the community. This allows a more dynamic way for community members to interact with the translation. Its also a lot more complicated and needed all of the proceeding work to get us to this point where we have now been working on this feature. Please bear with us as we work on it. We plan to have it available by the end of this year.

Thank you very much for the reply. I know that programming tasks are never easy. We are looking forward to seeing this new feature added. I think that would make Scripture Forge a great tool in community checking.
