The New Comments Thingy

Okay, now that you’ve had a week or so to play with it, how are you liking the new comments thingy?

Once you register your Disqus ID you shouldn’t have to keep entering your email address, as some have mentioned.

But overall, do you like it, hate it, find it Meh? Is there a strong feeling for keeping it, or going back to the old comments? Let me know!

Let me know HERE, in the comments section – not by email, please, b/c I’m swamped!

    A number of times last week I couldn’t make comments open up. But when it works, it seems to work fine.

  • Deacon Dean Herrick

    Just logged in using my fb account. Pretty simple, really. Not a problem.

  • Anonymous

    Just registered. I’ll let you know after I try it out.

  • Kathleen

    I just wish they would show “how many” comments.

  • cathyf

    It also seems to have wiped out comments on threads that were made before the new system.

    Fairly antisocial…

  • Manny

    It’s telling me there is already a Manny in the system. I just find this awkward. Perhaps it’s me.

  • Jeanette

    I signed in under Discus and couldn’t get my post to post.

    I’ve been using it on my own blog for about two months now and have been very happy with it. I appreciate the mobile aspect of it — I can more easily reply to comments via e-mail.

    I think that as Disqus gets bigger, it will get better. There are some “quirks” to it, but all in all it is pretty good. The only thing I dont like is that the comments default showing is “Sort by Popular” – i have never been a fan of “like-ing” comments to move them up… I think it only adds to com-box wars.

    I did try an old version of this on my blog… and eventually went back to blogger’s regular system… I dont remember why.

    The nice thing is there are several ways to login – FB, Twitter, OpenID, and you can even make a Disqus login – this is on top of a generic “Post As” identity… nice for those of us that want a more bare-bones way of doing things.
