Release the hounds: New commenting system

  • 01/17/2008 3:08 pm in

the_blog.jpgEarlier this week, in our “Help us improve Inside the Hall” post, a good lot of you out there were clamoring for a message board or forum to get your Hoosier talk on. We’re still a bit hesitant to bust that out, so we think we’ve found the next best thing: a forum within the comments. This post — hopefully — will be the first one to have the new system called Disqus.

You’ll be able to respond to individual comments, make your own avatar and profile and rate other people’s comments. We’re excited about it. However, it’s largely an unknown beast to us, so we do apologize for any unforeseen mishaps. Take a peek around and see all it has to offer.

With that said: time to let it whirl. We’ll see how it goes and take it from there. Good luck out there, kids.

Sidenote: If you don’t want to register, you don’t have to. You can just keep posting comments as you always have.

    Pretty cool. Thanks, guys.

    testing it out!

  • I would suggest registering to everyone. Very easy to do and you can easily customize an avatar.

    IU 77-MN 74….We need this win. I just heard Bassett is expected to start, also.

    Sweet…looking forward to Armon being back in the starting lineup. I hope he's healthy enough to keep playing solid minutes all season.

  • So, do I have to go to the Disqus site when I want to post, or can I do it straight from ITH? When I click “Login,” all it does is reload the ITH site, with nothing changed…

    I'm a computer idiot.

    Interesting…

  • You just post from right here.

  • SocksShortsSwish

    Yeah, not working. When I post from ITH, it shows me as anonymous.

  • SocksShortsSwish

    That said, it might just be me…did I need to download something?

  • SSS:

    No need to download anything. Try just heading to disqus.com and registering under your name, and then login and click “remember”. You ought not to have to type in your info on the site again.

    If other people have questions, let us know; we're glad to answer. This system should be a big improvement.

  • Magically, when I tried hitting “login” for the thirty-second time, it actually sent me to a login page instead of re-loading the ITH site.

  • Rating comments…that will get exciting quickly.

  • I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully people remember to add points, and not just subtract them from morons, but we shall see.
