You can now create a personal profile for yourself and include permanent links to your own blogs, your Facebook page, your Twitter account, etc. You can also embed YouTube clips and personal photos into your comments, as well as upload ...

New Commenting System

As you’ve probably noticed, we’ve installed a new commenting system here on JMG. A host of new features await you. You can vote comments up or down or you can mark then as “offensive.” If ten or more of your fellow commenters find your message to be assholish, it will be collapsed. (Just like on YouTube.) Speaking of YouTube, you ...

Comment Count Wonky Again

Obviously, Haloscan is having another bad hair day. All comments are being recorded and can be viewed instantly, but the comment counter is often at zero or way off. I’m riding this out as Haloscan is in the process of transitioning to its new platform which will include numerous new features. You’ll able to drop in YouTube clips, vote individual ...

Comments Counter Not Updating

Haloscan is having its quarterly hiccup and the comment counters are not updating on today’s posts. You can always use the “notify me” function and follow-ups to your comments will be emailed to you directly. We’re all still waiting for Haloscan’s much-touted upgrade, which was promised to us months ago. UPDATE: The Haloscan glitch continues for all users. Your comments ...

Tinkers To Evers To Chance

What a weird last few days on teh interwebs, a regular triple play of nonsense.

We got a heads-up from the CEO of JS-Kit, ...

Haloscan, Again. AGAIN.

Obviously the comments counter has been broken all day. Your comments are being saved but the counter isn’t updating. Haloscan’s new owners, JS-Kit, have been unresponsive to emailed requests for status info and to comments placed on their help forum. It’s seriously time to get another commenting system. I’d hate to lose a half-million comments or whatever, but what are ...

Haloscan, which was recently acquired by another company, is having another meltdown. It appears that your comments ARE being recorded, but the pop-up comment boxes are showing empty at the moment. So damn annoying. UPDATE: The problem appears resolved.

Haloscan Issue

Haloscan is having its quarterly meltdown. Comments appear to be posting OK, but the number count is not updating. My apologies. Hopefully this will be resolved soon, but in the meantime y’all will have to manually check each post for added comments.

More Haloscan Issues

Again, the commenting system on this here website thingy is acting up. I’ve noticed that Haloscan has added a widget that notes how many people are viewing an individual comment box. If that’s the cause of the current issue, there doesn’t seem to be a way to disable that function. Boo.

Haloscan Suckage

Haloscan has been most unreliable over the last few days, my apologies. Please try reloading the page until you get a comments link. Then if you’re lucky, you can actually leave a comment. Grrrr.
