I’ve been trying to implement a new comments system that will help streamline the Trollhattan commenting experience without filling my inbox with spam at a rapid rate.
I’m hoping that the situation is now sorted.
When you hit the comments button, the form will look as it did previously, but with the addition of a question and a field for you to type an answer (the answer is in the question, so don’t sweat about it). I’m yet to test, but I think the answer is case-sensitive, so start your answer with a capital ‘S’.
If you include the answer as required, your comment will appear straight away without having to queue up for moderation. If the answer is not included or is wrong, the comment will go to the moderation queue. I’ll keep this process for a few weeks, but as people get used to it, i’ll eventually just have it delete comments entered with the wrong answer.
Typekey registration is still available, though it’s a pain in the backside for the user and I don’t recommend it (and thanks Ryan for giving me the gentle size 11 in the pants that I needed to get busy on this). As long as you’re accepting cookies, the form will remember your information. All you should have to do is manually write in the answer, remembering the capital ‘S’ and then write your comments.
Go give it a try.
Things I know from this weekend:
Good seats in your car are worth the money.
In contact sports, size will always beat speed in the end.
Bill Gates looks very out of place in a rock n roll crowd.
I still don’t understand Michael Stipe (from REM, above). Never have, never will. After the blue face thing at live-8 I’m convinced more than ever that he’s just a monumental tosser.
Elton John is a fat old queen that should just confine himself to abusing his servant staff. Please leave us common folk alone. Between work, children, taxes, sickness and mechanical breakdowns, there’s well and truly enough in this life to test us without some has-been in a poncy outfit and dumb glasses inflicting himself upon us.
Your friend’s baby may be cute, but his voice at maximum volume is cute to his parents only.
Giving up smoking really, really sucks if you don’t have enough things to meaningfully occupy your time.
