There's a new comment system in place here. I now allow for anonymous commenting. But of course, there's perks to being a member...on the story/comment page, anonymous comments appear only after all member comments, and anonymous comments appear in a flat list - no comment hierarchy.
Why the change? I figured some of the site's visitors might have something interesting to say but not feel like registering to say it. And if you have registered, commenting is easier than ever before. You just go to the story-specific page and you can leave the comment right there. No more separate page to go to.
As with any overhaul, there's likely to be some minor bugs to get worked out in the first few days. Hopefully it'll be a smooth transition.
One more note: I reserve to edit/delete any comment as I see fit. Spam comments will be deleted, and comments may be edited for content. Anonymous ones even moreso. If you're not including any objectionable content (by me), you don't have to worry.
Last, feedback is always appreciated.
