Discuss With Disqus
I've just enabled a new feature on the EE Compendium: commenting!
This was actually one of the big features I was hoping to accomplish with the new site. The ability to comment on a particular page should help in the sharing of knowledge and the discussion of ideas.
The commenting feature is provided by Disqus:
Disqus Comments is a comment system and moderation tool for your site. This service lets you add next-gen community management and social web integrations to any site on any platform. Hundreds of thousands of sites, from small blogs to large publications, rely on Disqus Comments for their discussion communities.
One of the really cool features of Disqus is that it allows you to use your existing identities to comment (or you can comment anonymously, as a guest). You can log in using credentials from sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, and OpenID. This capability also makes it easy to share a page on Facebook or Twitter.
For now, moderation is turned off, which means that your comments should appear immediately. If this proves to be a problem (i.e. if the site gets a lot of spam), then I'll turn on moderation, and will have to manually approve all comments.
An of course, it should go without saying, but I'll say it anyway: I'm the sole arbiter of what's appropriate for this site, and I reserve the right to delete any comments I consider in poor taste, abusive, off-topic, etc. Any inappropriate comments will be deleted, and any repeat offenders will be banned. So be civil.
This commenting system should probably be considered a beta feature at this point. If it turns out to be more trouble than it's worth, I'll turn it off.
