I installed a blog comment suite called intense debate that reworks the comments pretty seriously. Voodoo Knickers now supports
- Threaded Comments
- Comment Subscriptions
- Comment Ratings
- Other things which I haven’t played with yet.
I am somewhat concerned that it seems to be loading slowly. It feels like the IntenseDebate plugin is loading the comments on from their servers which is incredibly dumb for several reasons. 1. it slows load time which is the number one thing that determines use. 2. It’s not a sustainable growth model.
Please note that I will still delete stupid and boring comments that don’t really add anything to the discussion. I will also continue to publish highly relevant comments in the post body if I feel so inclined. Test out the system and please let me know what you think!
