Really important blog question

Do we want to go to threaded comments?

I have a love/hate relationship with those stupid setups, but it does seem to make sense.

Weigh in. Majority responding will make the decision.


  1. They can be awkward but I think it would make conversations easier to follow. Would it allow likes or dislikes? If so, then go for it.

  2. The Lorax says:

    Yes please. I quite enjoy Disqus.

  3. I’m with Dean…. if you can like comments, then change…. if not, then keep status quo

  4. I’m torn. I agree with Lorax on Disqus, but threaded comments sometimes make it difficult to respond to multiple comments at once and leads to redundant conversations occurring under the same post.

  5. Well I just looked into it and the template I’m using isn’t coded to support them. So until I muster the enthusiasm to change it, we won’t be going to threaded comments.

    I appreciate your input on the matter. They use threaded at Patch, and it leaves me rather frustrated at times.

    I have always enjoyed this blog design, especially the simplicity and white space. A lot of WI bloggers followed suit when I cleaned things up more than a year and a half ago. I think I’ll be leaving it alone for a while.
