Frustrated with the long-stagnant Xpress commenting system? We are, too. Our commenting system is a few years old, and it lacks a lot of the social-media integration today’s users expect.
So we’re trying some thing new — the Disqus commenting system — and we’d like your help to see if it works.
We’re asking you to leave comments — lots of comments — and test every available feature Disqus offers. Login with Facebook, Twitter, Google or one of the other options. Post anonymously. Post links. Upload images. Play around with it, and let us know — in the comments — what you think.
We’ll be testing the system on the backend as well. One of our reasons for changing our comment system is that our current moderation tools are limited, and Disqus offers us a major upgrade. Don’t be shocked or surprised if, on this post, weird things happen to some of the test comments.
Also, if you’d like to suggest another third-party commenting system, please post a link to the page here.
