A few stories often have some bonus text submitted that helps explain why a story is interesting, when I may pass it by passed on the title alone. I like this, and think it works better than attempting to edit titles to be interesting. The problem is that this text isn’t visible on the front page, and I have to click comments on each story to check for it. At that point, well, I may as well just click the link itself.

Is there a way to fit this text onto the front page? (or a short version, if somebody writes too much)

    mouseover?

      Just adding I’ve seen this on a few message boards, and I love it. The mouseover provides the first paragraph (up to [x] characters), which is usually enough to figure out if you want to venture further in.

      Agreed that there is frequently useful content there, but it seems like things would get really messy. Especially on mobile.

        Maybe just an icon (or a badge!) on mobile?
