I placed a story from SB Nation regarding the new commenting system in the "river" on the site's main page.
If you are not a fan of the new, supposed "30 second wait time" for people to see your comments, kindly go here and let the tech people know.
If you are a fan of the new commenting system, kindly go here and let the tech people know.
If you want to know what was told to us writers and editors regarding the commenting system, here you go:
Once this update is released later this week, when you post a comment you will then have 90 seconds to edit that comment. You'll see a countdown timer and a progress bar that scrolls from right to left indicating how much time you have left on the edit. Editing the comment does not reset the timer, but you can edit multiple times in the 90 second window. This behavior has been live on both of Vox Media's other verticals, The Verge and Polygon for the past few months and it's been very successful and users have embraced it.
In addition to adding comment editing, this release would also enable a new system for collapsing comments.
I honestly hadn't heard anything about "waiting 30 seconds before a comment is posted" until you readers mentioned it here last night.
Again, if you aren't a fan of this new system, let the let the developers know. Nothing wrong with speaking up and expressing yourself. It's kind of what these blogs are all about.
