We’ll be making some changes to the site over the next while. The aim is to make it easier to navigate and a better experience all round.
This will mean there will be some occasional downtime over the next week; don’t worry, it won’t be for long, and when we’re done, it’ll be a much improved website.
One of the things we’re experimenting with at the moment is changing the comment management system to Disqus.
If you’re not familiar with it, Disqus is a comment system that allows you to post not just via our traditional login, but through Twitter, Facebook and Google+ as well. So far we like what we’ve seen.
But – isn’t there always a but – if we switch, it looks like commenters will have to create new accounts with Disqus; your old logins may not work. So, our question: would people mind having to recreate their accounts? No matter what happens, the original comments will remain – this change ‘may’ just affect new ones.
We’d appreciate any and all thoughts through the comments, and will be guided by you.
