NASA Watch Service Update – New Commenting System
Marc’s note: Please note that from 11:00 pm ET tonight through 11:00 am ET tomorrow NASA Watch will be undergoing maintenance and may be unavailable at times during that time with commenting turned off. We’re implementing a new commenting system. All old comments will be archived and ported to the new system.
Marc’s update – 12:00 pm ET Dec. 26: As part of our ongoing plan to improve NASA Watch we’ve decided to implement a new comment system. The transition is ongoing and is taking a little longer than expected. This is due to the sheer number of comments that need to be migrated to our new system.
We’ll be using Disqus a third party comment service which we’ve already implemented on some of the other SpaceRef web sites. One of the benefits of the new comment system will be a faster system, an ability to whitelist more commenters and a more effective and time saving spam filtering system. If you already have a Disqus account you can start commenting right away. Otherwise it just takes a couple of minutes to create a new commenting account.
The new system is effective immediately for new posts as of today. Older posts will have their comments transitioned over the next day. If you have any questions please send your inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
