A couple weeks ago, we asked folks in the forum for feedback on My Ballard’s comment system. Many of you asked that we allow users to help moderate comments, as well as link comment profiles with forum profiles. We agree, so we’re beginning to work on connecting the profiles. In the meantime, we’ve switched back to Disqus, a comment system that has some great moderation features, including the ability for you to flag inappropriate posts (just “mouse over” a comment and click the “flag” link that appears.)
Disqus also allows us to better moderate a small handful of users who are posting under multiple names at high frequency — often to inflame a conversation or impersonate someone else — which has become an increasing problem with our standard WordPress comments. Thanks for your understanding as we try to keep the peace, and as always, please let us know what you think.
