So, turns out I took Crymore offline for… 15 hours, all for nothing. There’s not one good goddamn commenting plugin out there. They all either hang up on the import, look like shit, or are severely terrible.
It seems the best way to fix the comments is by changing the theme to one that doesn’t suck, so we can utilize all that white space at the bottom. And no I’m not gonna fucking do that right now. People would think Crymore died again if I left the site offline for another day. So, sorry, but that’s gonna have to wait.
Oh, and just for an idea of what I’m bitching about, here’s what a comment thread on disqus looks like:
Can you tell what the fuck’s going on there? Cuz I certainly can’t. That’s because Disqus limits threaded comments to 4 threads only. Our regular comments are threaded to level 10, and that’s still not good enough.
Also, I can’t disable the upvotes/downvotes, and that’s a fucking dealbreaker.
So yeah, we’re back to the shitty old system. If you have any brilliant ideas for how to fix this shit, I’m all ears, but for now we’re stuck with something that’s functional, albeit functionally retarded.
