Welcome to the Commenty Goodness!!

It’s done!

Check out the all-new, all-good commenty wonderfulness!

Intense Debate is now in the house.

Johnny feel good.

It’s been driving me crazy how under served the people who comment here have been. Being able to buff out the comments section is a huge reason I moved to a self-hosted blog.

And it worked! Here we have it!

Oh, buy yayeth.

    All this change is upsetting my delicate constitution, you know. ;)

    A little Pepto can take care of that. :)

  • John Shore

    Whoa.

  • John Shore

    About 50% of the "old" comments have thus far synced into Intense Debate, the program that'll be doing my comments (which I'm seeing here for the first time. I like it!)

    Omnia mutantur, nihil interit?

    I noticed clicking on the bully post, the original comments pop up for a fraction of a second, then disappear as the post-changeover comments are loaded.

    So they are there, somehow, but they get disappearedified or something.

    Maybe a javascript issue?

    Dunno.

    It seems to me that there still is something winky with the comments. I tried to comment on your Alpha Boy blog, and the first attempt is now stuck on “awaiting moderation”, while a second, independent comment seems to just get swallowed… (If I sent it now three times by re-trying, please feel free to delete all but the latest version…)

    Well, I *hope* it’s some wonkiness and I haven’t for some reason gotten some ban on your site… ^_^’

    • Mindy

      Of course you've been banned, FreeFox. You're a naughty boy, don'tcha know?!

  • Kara

    Testing, one, two, three…

  • http://johnshore.com John Shore

    It's on, baby!

  • Susan

    Woot!

    Fyi: "Recent Comments" aren't linking to the comments.

    • John Shore

      I don't know what you're saying/meaning. AND I'm pretty sure I don't want to … !

    • John Shore

      Oh, I gotcha: You mean over on the sidebar, in the box that says "Latest Comments." Good call! I'll go deal with that. Thanks for noticing that.

      • Susan

        Fixed.

        Fabuloso!

        Awesome job!

  • Mary

    The change is freaking me out. LOL

  • William Ely

    Wow, love the new setup! Big improvement!

  • blueberrypancakesfordinner

    here!

  • Beth Luwandi

    But what does it all mean? That's what I want to know…

  • myfanwe

    I hope all this dust will settle soon. *cough* it's not good for my asthma. LOL

  • rm8471

    Wissen Sie, ich bin total verwirrt jetzt.

    • rm8471

      You do realize that I am totally confused now.

  • BlackEyed_Susan

    @John

    At one point, and perhaps it was directed at only one person due to her particular mel-ness, you requested abastaining from addressing questions directly to you via this blog. I have a couple of questions that may have to do with homosexuality and one that is a general one about Christianity. Better to email, or go for it here?

    Susan

    • John Shore

      Either is fine. As you noted, I was only requesting that one particular person to choose between addressing me personally and being blocked off the site. But that was a very particular case. Feel free to ask me anything either on the blog or to me personally via email.

  • Ace

    John – is there some way to increase the character limit of comments? We're a verbose bunch here and it seems to cut you off pretty soon.

    Also, on older posts, it seems to have stripped out some of the nested replies and longer comments, which seems a shame to me to destroy the old threads.

    • John Shore

      Lemme look into both; both are … bad. Sorry about that.
