The new comment system is up and running. There have been a few hiccups already—and are likely to continue for the next few days. It's just not possible to test software on every possible PC configuration anymore.
Please do not hesitate to let me know of any problems at all, either in the comments below, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call me directly at my therapy practice's number: (800) 950-5329.
The main benefits of the new system:
- Increased security
- Comments and replies can no longer be deleted or edited once there is a reply attached. This will stop the difficulties we've been having with key comments disappearing.
- There should be no more duplication of comments.
- There are a host of new features for you to discover
- I've imported all our old comments, so nothing has been lost. I'm even trying to delete duplicates from the last month or so.
Here is a clear, easy-to-follow beginner's guide to getting the most out of the Disqus system.
I believe the only major change you will see is that commenting will now require you to register to post a comment. I am doing this for security reasons, bnt you may still remain anonymous if you choose.
You will be offered a chance to register the first time you post a new comment. You do not have to include an email or other identifying information. You are simply registering your username.
I hope you enjoy the new system—but if you don't please let me know. I'll see what I can do to make it work for you.
