A More Better Comments Is Coming

I know that many of you have requested that we re-instate the burger ratings on comments. In fact, we’ve been dissatisfied with the state of our current commenting system and have been looking for a replacement. It’s taken us a long time, but we have a plan.

Here’s the list of fixes or new features we wanted to see in a new commenting system.

  1. Add comment ratings (or comment karma)
  2. Single sign on (your Cheezburger Account will identify you)
  3. Allow threading on all browsers with consistent rendering
  4. Allow for 500 or more nested comments without slowing browser rendering (Currently, when we pass 300 comments on a page, it may crash some browsers)
  5. Whitelisted links (EG: all links to ICHC and sister sites would not be held for moderation)
  6. Reply notification when someone replies to your comment
  7. An API to integrate comments with Cheezburger Accounts

We’re currently evaluating 3 options: 2 from partner sites and 1 that will be homegrown. We will announce a date as to when the new commenting feature will be released next week.
