On Comments published on No Comments on On Comments

I’ve made a change to the comment policy on the site which you can read about here.

Basically, comments will automatically lock seven days after a new page is posted. Discussion can continue in relevant sections of the forum instead. I like having comments available on the pages as they’re published, and it’s fun to see everyone’s immediate reactions, but there’s little point in discussion on pages that are 5+ years old at the beginning of the archive. Most regular readers don’t go back that far on a regular basis, and new readers just comment and pass by. It makes much more sense to have ongoing discussion available for everyone to jump in regardless of whether they’re long-time or first-time readers to the comic. I’ll be adding individual sections for chapters 1-5 to the comic discussion section, to hopefully keep spoilers at bay for those who aren’t as far in the story yet. Old comments and comments that are made within the seven day period will be frozen and remain on the page, you just won’t be able to add anything new once the comments are locked.

Complaints, comments, etc. can be directed here. Thanks.

Certain readers (*coughcoughTypohackcough*) have asked that I try to publicize the forums more and get more discussion going, so here I am, pointing out the fact that the forums are up and running and you should come join them, etc. 😀 I’ve taken down the chatbox, because while it was fun, I decided that it bogs down the site too much when it reloads every time you flip a page, and I kind of like having the story discussion attached to the pages themselves in the comments.

There used to be a small, but regular forum group a couple of years ago, but the problem was that my entire site got hacked and basically the entire thing was really broken for a really long time. There were some things I didn’t have backups for, which taught me my lesson about that. It took a long time to get everything put together the way it should be, and I’m still working on it in some places. The forum was one of the things that got eaten, and I was hesitant to put it back up after losing so much stuff. (I’m fairly certain the whole incident came from a security flaw in the forum software I was using at the time – I’ve since changed that and I’m extremely careful about the new one.) The whole thing made me learn my lesson about keeping better backups, and making sure anything I install on the site is secure and up to date. Unfortunately, the hard way.

The new forums are shiny and clean, and I’ve put a lot of effort into measures to keep the spambots out. (Another problem that plagued the old ones.) So I’d like to point out the fact that they’re there and usable, and encourage you to check them out if you’re a regular on the site!
