Comments Are Back In Play

The comment system is now considered good to use. We’ve moved away from Disqus to wpDiscuz, which offers services and premium options that aren’t delivered in an offputting manner.

We’re still playing with the aesthetics, so pardon anything not looking too pretty at the moment. Be aware that the thumbs up/thumbs down rating system has a potential chance to not be retained if we break something. Actual comments, however, are safe.

Feel free to get used to it, post around, make suggestions if you got ’em.

Also, let me thank Justin for once again kicking ass and proving an invaluable full time member of the Jimquisition crew.

Nice Jim. But I have a few issues with the design. The comment system is too wide for the site, the avatars are squeezed all the way out on the left side. That clashes a little with the symmetri of the rest of the page that has a margin of about 50px from the edge of the site to the content text on each side? Know what I mean?

Tell your webdesigner to crack open the wordpress css and bring in the margins. He’ll know.
Otherwise great system. And great content.

On the one hand, it’s nice we no longer have Disqus. My pleas to sanity on the Edith Finch review were going nowhere and now I don’t have to worry about them ever again since he was using Disqus to visit the site and wasn’t actually a fan of Jim’s.

On the other, I don’t have access (blocked by network admin) to social media so I’m stuck with the guest log-ins. Also, other reasons for why this could be personally unpleasant that is not Jim or Justin’s problem.

Grats though. Any change was a positive one after the shitshow Disqus pulled.

Shame they decided to pull a [♪SKELETON WARRIORS♫] move, disqus was pretty good

I’m just responding to say [♪SKELETON WARRIORS♫]. I love Justin’s filter.

Pretty awesome. Definitely wasn’t a fan of Disqus given their shady behavior and forcing ads on the platforms that use it.

So, the ability to edit and/or delete comments while awaiting moderation might be handy. Nothing like staring at an unfixable spelling error. It mocks me.

IT MOCKS ME.

Nah, I think it’s Twitter from now on.
@justin I would really like some sort of edit functionality if possible? Please?

This comment system could unleash deadly bees at me after every twelfth post and it’s still be better than those fucking Disqus ads.

Sorry for the rough start with this, everyone! We’re working to properly fix the CAPTCHA problems, and we’ve just added in Social Logins. We’ll keep working on it overtime until we get it perfect, but if you see anything wrong PLEASE don’t hesitate to let either Jim or I know! Twitter is a usually safe bet to get up with me quickest. My handle is @JUSTINtime4aLAF

Like I said, this system could shoot bees at me and it’d still be better than those page-choking ads.

Honestly, I kind of hope you’re satisfied enough with this system in the next few months that you can kick them a few premium dollars, if for no other reason than just to spite Disqus for being huge cun[SKELETON WARRIORS] about the whole thing.

Wait, so saying [♪SKELETON WARRIORS♫] gets that censor?

Yes please.

I would be tempted to try and find a way to have that replaced with “SKELETON WARRIORS!!”, but that is not my call to make. Lol.

The world’s best word filter came to be because of this comment.

That’s cool. I really liked Disqus due the notification system, but the shitty ads really suck.

Testing if can you just change your name all willy nilly, or if the first one you put in gets tied to the email or whatnot.

We’ll miss you Disqus, but not really because that forcing ads thing was annoying before it came to Jim’s site and I always got the shitty spambot messages. No Karen, I don’t care if your aunt made $3k a month and personally you and her sound like right proper cun[SKELETON WARRIORS].

By all means go for it. It’s Jim’s joke in the first place.
