[ Site Update ] New Commenting System

Posted on at 3:15 PM by Moobeat
Back when we disabled anonymous commenting, a lot of you requested we make improvements to the comment system. Many of you didn't like being limited to a Gmail account to comment and others just wanted a more polished way to interact with other members of the community. We listened to that feedback and we are happy to introduce our newest feature - a Disqus powered comment system.
Continue reading for an overview of some of the new features this new system brings to S@20, including more profile options, an upvote/downvote system, comment sorting, and more!

More "Log in" Options
Twitter, Facebook, Gmail, and Disqus log ins.
Rather than just Gmail accounts being the main way to facilitate comments, now you can choose to comment under your Twitter and Facebook aliases. You can also use your Disqus, the site which the new comment system is powered by, account. Registering for a Disqus account is super simple and you quickly do so by using the blank beside the login buttons.

Editing and Attachments
You can do more with your comments now! If you want to share a special image, perhaps a screen shot or something like that, you can now attach it directly to the post. You can also edit your posts now, instead of having to totally delete them if you fix a spelling mistake or some other error.

Better Moderation Options
You guys might not care about this sort of thing, but this system comes with a ton of helpful moderation options, including banning, blacklisting, whitelisting, better spam filtering, and much more. This will make things a lot easier on the S@20 staff and hopefully we'll be spending much less deleting junk or spam comments.

Comment Voting

Going along with the above, this new comment system features a voting system designed to let the community vote up their favorite or most useful comments and vote down the dreaded "first!!ogm!!" posts or other such nonsense.

Comment Sorting

Tying into the above, you now have several options to sort comments by. You can sort by best, which arranges the comments based on the user voted score, or you can go with the good ol' fashioned Newest and Oldest options to sort them by the time they were posted.

Replying to replies

My personal favorite change is that you can now reply to specific comment replies instead of only being able to reply to the original comment and every other reply showing up in a tacky block of text.

Notifications
Speaking of replies, you'll also get a notification to "My Disqus" tab whenever someone replies to one of your comments. Should be a lot easier than herpderpin' around to see if your favorite anon ever responded back to your post.

 Our only problem right now is that the new system isn't available on the mobile site and will sometimes not display comments made on a mobile phone correctly. Other than that, things are fully functional. If you run into any bugs or have any concerns, please don't hesitate to let us know, either in the comments below or on one of the social media networks.

This new system has a lot of the features you guys have been requesting and I sincerely hope you give it a whirl before dismissing it.

 As always, thanks for supporting S@20! <3
