    Poll: what should PP do with our commenting system?


    by Leon on 5th December, 2009 at 4:40 AM    

    There’s been some email discussion and a fairly short but pertinent public discussion about PP’s new commenting system. I’ve stated my opposition to it but continuing on from the discussion I think it’s only fair the readers have a chance to vote.

      I don't know whether it's been mentioned, but I find the little latest comments more difficult to read than the previous system. I don't know whether the font can be enlarged without enlarging the whole page. That influences my decision. Maybe it's a subtle way of screening out presbyopic readers. :-)

      Good idea Leon.

      The “latest comments section” and possibly numbering the comments could indeed be improved. But the new comment system is objectively better than the old one.

      => My comments do not go to the spam folder
      => I think the feedback system is cool (having the “like” button)
      => The possibility to “reply” to someone
      => The fact that I can edit my posts until someone replies to it, and not have a timer.

      That was fun :)

      I tend to post on my iPhone so font sizes adjust when I tap the screen in any case..

      Cheers, I figure discussion is a good start but numbers give a clear idea of how popular the new system is.

      It eats my relpies, in fact it ate my reply in this thread 30 secs ago, im close to sobbing.

      Delighted to get the figures from America.

      I find the new Discus comments system irritating, and several times it hasn't let me post comments. Go back to the old one, it wasn't broken.

      As a rare visitor, I am neutral.
      But I have noticed in that the site is slower and temperamental (the technology, that is. The site in other regards has always been temperamental).
