Wednesday Morning Update

8:00am CT: It looks as though the migration was successful overnight. I'm going to go ahead and keep comments closed until I get confirmation from Disqus, because if something else does need to get done, I'd rather have kept comments closed than have to re-close them. So hold tight, and hopefully we'll have commenting back sometime this morning.

UPDATE 1: 10:10am CT: Disqus Support is still waiting to get confirmation from the engineer running the migration that it was successful. I'll keep you posted.

UPDATE 2: 11:30am CT: Still no word. I've emailed Disqus to see what the hold-up is. Hopefully we'll get news soon.

UPDATE 3: 12:00pm CT: Okay, I still haven't heard anything, so I'm just going to go ahead and start posting new content below with closed comments. This post will stay at the top of the page as long as comments are closed, so updates are easily accessible.

UPDATE 4: 1:00pm CT: I still have received no information from Disqus today. No confirmation if the migration was successful, and no explanation if it wasn't. This continues to be suuuuuuuper frustrating. I understand if there are still problems that need fixing. What I don't understand is not bothering to communicate with me AT ALL, totally leaving me in the dark about what's happening with my account.

I did not expect today to go this way. This is really disappointing.

UPDATE 5: 1:30pm CT: I have received word from Disqus that the migration is mostly complete aside from "some stubborn threads from 2008 which we're still looking into but otherwise everything looks good to go." The delay in relaying this information to me was attributed to my point person's train getting delayed, which means we lost another 2/3 a day for no fucking reason.


I am going to slowly start re-opening comments. If you notice any glitches or problems, let me know. I'll post an announcement when we're back up in earnest.
