Why sometimes DW's recent comments shows subject lines and sometimes does not?

Does this show a subject line?

Nope. So much for that theory.

As in, no subject is displayed even for those comments that do have one?

I rarely remember that I can put subject lines on my replies.

Oh, the *post's* subject line! Well, no subject added for this comment.

For the record, I see subjects on every comment here but the first (chomiji's)

Perhaps this setting is relevant?

Halfway down the
screen, there's this tick box:
"Display the replacement text when no subject is specified in comments
If disabled, the replacement text will still appear where a subject is required, such as in collapsed comments."

It may well be a transient bug: I've been posting here for ~8 years and today my style displays as mobile even though my screen is at desktop size. The import queue is huge right now, and Things May Be Wacky.

Don't hesitate to report the issue to
or check the current support queue
