I receive a lot of comments about “the comments.” I am interested in the community’s view on ways to improve the current comments system on NorthEndWaterfront.com. Please participate in these two polls on potential changes for 2014!
The first one is easy. Should we keep the Thumbs Up and Thumbs Down feature?
I am also considering whether to implement a registration and login system for commenting. You can read some of the latest debate on this Universal Hub post. It points out many of the pros and cons of having folks login even if they are still anonymous. Fortunately, the comment queue here is not nearly as high maintenance although I still find moderating comments the worst part of managing this site. Comments by logged in users would appear immediately without moderation although they could still be deleted later as necessary.
Longtime readers will remember the real name system that we tried to implement a few years ago. Unfortunately, it did not work out because it was too easy to fake names.
Please add any comments below with your suggestions and feedback. As always, thanks for your support!
