For the second time this year, we’re unveiling a new commenting system on staradvertiser.com with a goal of improving and encouraging discussion.
Civil Comments, which we’ve used since February, is closing up shop. So today we are migrating to Talk, a system developed by the Coral Project.
While Civil Comments helped improve the overall environment of our comment threads, we believe Talk will take things to the next level. A few notes on using the new system:
No login changes: Your staradvertiser.com account will automatically connect you to Talk.
No rating comments: You no longer need to rate other comments before you can post.
Moderation: Talk includes a moderation tool that aims to keep the discussion civil, so you’ll be prompted to reconsider words or comments that the system flags.
Overall, the system is easy to use and we think you’ll like it. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any feedback.
