I’ve enabled the new Disqus 2012, which handles long discussions much better (see this example) and has got a lot more nifty features, all of which you can read about here.
In theory, conversations should be happening in real-time now. Be sure to check out the cool community functions, too. And if you’re logged in, the “My Disqus” has recent responses to your comments as well as a list of your recent activity.
Oh, and I’ve crafted two rotating banners. More to come when I have time.
Going to give Disqus another try—they’ve made some changes to it I want to check out.
It’s going to take a couple of hours to export all my comments to it, though. Sorry for the inconvenience.
UPDATE: Still uploading the comments. Might be a couple of more hours. Feel free to comment in the meantime, though—your comments will be saved.
UPDATE: Disqus is behaving in a rather frustrating manner, with effed-up comment counts and missing comments. Trying to figure it out. If I can’t rectify it today, I’ll abandon the effort. Will let you know when things are finished.
UPDATE: Disqus import behaving in an infuriating manner now. Going to give a try to Livefyre, which they use at a number of big sites. You might not want to comment until I’ve imported everything and seen how it works, unless of course you’ve already got a Livefyre account or want one anyway. Again, sorry for the inconvenience, but really, this is for the best in the long run.
UPDATE: Livefyre ran into import issues, too. Shit. On advice from email, comments, Facebook, etc., I’m going to give Intense Debate a try, but frankly, I think I’m going to end going back to Disqus and hope they figure out why I can’t import comments made since July 16, 2011 (the last time I tried Disqus, coincidentally, we seems relevant).
I thought, considering tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, that this bit was appropriate:
The most common questions the Korean receives are about Korean men.
“Hordes of non-Korean women ask about how to approach a Korean man or why their Korean boyfriends are acting in one way or another,” says the Korean, whose readers are largely from countries such as the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
I never thought of you as a relationship advice columnist……(said with a smile)
