Finally upgrading our comment system.


UPDATE: I’m working on making the visual style fit better. It really needs some work.

Yes Ladies and Gentlemen, we’re finally taking the plunge into a more robust commenting system. This one has a ton of features, but the following few have been asked for quite frequently.

  • You can now edit your comments. Yes, finally. No seriously, try it. To do this, you’ll need to log in though!
  • Subscription to a comment thread is now optional. Horay!
  • You can now “Like” or dislike comments.

IntenseDebate is converting our old comments over, so they should begin to appear soon. Please feel free to email me directly[caleb@] with any issue you encounter using the new system. I know you’ve been asking for it for a very long time, I’ll do my best to make sure that it goes as smoothly as possible.

    No, please no.

    This sucks!

  3. MikrySoft says:

    So where is that like/dislike?

    • Whatnot says:

      Disable all protection and allow scripts from everybody and you get your silly likes/dislikes.

      (Oh and while I’m commenting and as an addition to my previous bitching: it also takes a long time before the comments finally show up.)

    Something’s screwey here, on FireFox (with lots of blockers and web crap removal addons/scripts) I get this old view, but with plain IE I get the new discussion format, which I don’t like, looks ugly.

  5. rasz says:

    I dont see any difference?

  6. Bob says:

    Please make sure that comments can be posted *without* Javascript.

  7. Xyroze says:

    You get this comment section if you have the scripts from wordpress and intense debate blocked. If you enable them, the new section comes up.

    Oh…… i see… the comments have been segmented between those who accept the new scripts/tracking cookies and those who do not.

  10. pod says:

    Look like you get this old version if using the default android browser too

    I’m pretty sure when enough people will enable escripting HAD will disable the old commenting system. That day is the day I’m leaving HAD.
