Just a little bit of housekeeping……
We like to chat here at Inside Saab but we know that sometimes, when people are confronted with a comments system that looks a little different, they might be inclined to shy away. Inside Saab uses a comments system called Disqus. It provides us with some good moderation tools and also lightens our server load (which is always nice).
Commenting via Disqus couldn’t be easier so if you’ve thought of this ‘new’ system as a barrier to entry, let me walk you through.
If you’re new to the system then it won’t recognise you and you’ll need to either sign in or register. Disqus makes this process super-easy. Once you’ve entered your comment text into the dialog, you need to press the “Post As” button on the bottom right side of the dialog box. A pop-up will give you the various registration options:
The default option is to login using a Disqus profile. If you don’t have a Disqus profile, you also have the opportunity to sign in using your profile from one of the following web services:
- Yahoo, or
If you don’t want to use one of these, creating a Disqus profile takes seconds and you can use it here on Inside Saab and any other site that uses Disqus (there’s quite a lot of them, now).
On the Login screen (see above image) you simply click the link that says “Register a new Disqus Profile”
The screen will change to the registration page. It’s still within the same popup and won’t take you away from Inside Saab.
Simply enter in your email address, desired username and password – and you’re done!
If you want to make your profile a bit more elaborate, you can go to Disqus.com, use your registration details to log in there and fill things out a bit (add an avatar image, etc).
On future visits, depending on your computer and privacy settings, the system will either remember you, or you can simply log in again whenever you want to leave a comment.
We look forward to hearing from you!
