Blog Note: Back to Flat

Since moving the comment system to Disqus, we've been learning more about how it operates and how best to make it work for all of us, given its current functionality.

One of the things we've learned is that threaded/nested comments is that it makes identifying the newest threaded comments more difficult—which, in turn, makes moderating them more difficult. So, we're changing the comment format back to flat, which is what everyone was used to previously. If, at some point, Disqus adds the ability to more easily identify the new comments in a nested thread, then we might consider switching back.

But for now, flat's where it's at for Shakesville.

I'd also like to thank everyone for being patient while we work out the growing pains of the new system.

Update: The "reply" link has been removed.

Shakesville is run as a safe space. First-time commenters: Please read Shakesville's Commenting Policy and Feminism 101 Section before commenting. We also do lots of in-thread moderation, so we ask that everyone read the entirety of any thread before commenting, to ensure compliance with any in-thread moderation. Thank you.
