It is a beta system right now, so it is not final. But we figured it was time to get going on it. This has been six months in the works, and we believe it is the best comment system we have ever worked with.
Some early things to remember:
You can sign in with your Facebook or Twitter account. We recommend you register via LiveFyre. If someone has thoughts on jobbing a username, we have a huge list of usernames and e-mails, so honestly it is not even worth trying.
All old comments will not be lost.
The system is in real-time. It may take a little time to load, but after that, all bets are off. It is scary fast.
Old comments are now last, and new comments are now first.
We still may have an option to switch this, but we actually like it.
Flickr, Twitpic, tinypic, and imgur are the supported images, meaning you just copy and paste the URL into the comment box and the image shows up as a thumbnail.
For vids, YouTube and Vimeo work. Just paste the URL, and it works.
HTML does not work as of now.
Remember this is a beta system, so things will only be getting better.
