So I finally got around to fixing a few issues with the new site design. The biggest change however is that I’ve installed the IntenseDebate commenting system, which in the future will be a standard part of WordPress. So I figured why not get ahead of the curve and start using it now?

It’s definitely an upgrade to the old comment system, especially with its threaded replies (something we’ve needed for a while). Also it imports all the old comments, so they’re all still there, but now when you make new comments things will be a little more dynamic.

Also I should note you don’t have to sign up with IntenseDebate to comment, but it will add more features to the whole commenting experience. If you leave a lot of comments it’s probably worth the time to sign up. Also Gravatars won’t stop working, but if you don’t have a Gravatar yet signing up at IntenseDebate will bypass that whole process.

So yeah, check it out… let me know if there are any bugs. Feel free to go nuts with test comments in this thread!

Hope this makes the site a little more enjoyable!

  3. B-mac on November 26th, 2008 3:04 am

    I can't log into bmac, since I don't have a password and emails aren't working for me. I'll just adopt a new name. :D

  4. Lekonua on November 26th, 2008 3:07 am

    Second test. Just 'cause I can. Yay for replying directly to comments.

  5. WolvenGlory on November 25th, 2008 11:10 pm

    Meet the new B-mac, now under the name of WolvenGlory, in spirit of the guy we all know and love, Star Wolf.

  6. Chris2 on November 26th, 2008 3:25 am

    Balls, my gravatar thing has disparoo'd.

  7. Chris on November 26th, 2008 3:32 am

    Ahh, there we go. Hopefully. Snazzy new feature.

  8. MasqueNoMercy on November 26th, 2008 3:34 am

    so… this means that i have to sign into intense debate AND word press or just avoid word press from now on?

  9. Shawn Handyside on November 26th, 2008 5:18 am

    Hmm, I'm not sure there's anything I can do about that… but I'll check it out.

  10. Shawn Handyside on November 26th, 2008 5:19 am

    Yeah I have no idea why it does that… kinda weird.

  12. Tonuchi on November 26th, 2008 5:38 am

    Hmmmmm it seems amidst my setting up intensedebate (like camping, get it in tents!) lol) I may have added it to my blog

  13. Tonuchi on November 26th, 2008 5:43 am

    Also it may just be me but whenever i type in the comment box it produces massive lag. Making it hard to be typo free.

  14. Tonuchi on November 26th, 2008 5:48 am

    Maybe because you are whoring yourself in posts. Just saying, when you have to make a comment that you are posting so much, it might mean something

  15. Joeybeta on November 26th, 2008 6:13 am

    This Joke isn't funny. but what happend to the website? XD

  16. NickSoapdish on November 26th, 2008 6:13 am

    Let's see if this still works

  17. NickSoapdish on November 26th, 2008 6:16 am

    Comments can still go out of the bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbboooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx!!!!!!!!!!10101010101!!!

  18. L.T. on November 26th, 2008 6:21 am

    Is it possible to have it pull randomly from a selection of possible images? Wolf, mudkip, Megaman mid-dance, etc.? That would add some fun to it.

  19. L.T. on November 26th, 2008 6:23 am

    Yes. Microsoft = bad, but Microsoft beta = assplosion

  20. L.T. on November 26th, 2008 6:25 am

    It's like the Spam section of a forum. One can always find a reason to not shut up.

  21. L.T. on November 26th, 2008 6:26 am

    Also, I believe the common usage is "fails to fail", but to each his own, yeah?

  22. Shawn Handyside on November 26th, 2008 7:33 am

    Mmm, I don't think that's possible… but if it's I'll certainly do it!

  23. Happy on November 26th, 2008 7:34 am


  24. WolvenGlory on November 26th, 2008 11:25 am

    It may be just you, since the comment system is working better than ever for me.

  25. Shawn Handyside on November 26th, 2008 9:05 am

    Argh I hate that! Someday I'll figure out how to stop it. >_<

  26. L.T. on November 26th, 2008 2:36 pm

    Nothing happened to THIS website, but it seems that becoming Daddy was like a shotgun to the face of the zombie that is Staccato. No offense, of course, to Shawn, as I know having a kid kind of eats a person alive … maybe that means that SHAWN is the zombie, not his comic. o_O

  27. WolvenGlory on November 27th, 2008 8:13 am

    Nope, now I'm last! Ha!

  28. Happy on November 27th, 2008 8:42 am

    If it helps, the problem's that it's anchoring to #respond rather than #comments.

  29. KingofRetards on November 28th, 2008 4:27 am

    Noaw, me are last.

  30. Nick Soapdish on November 29th, 2008 2:55 am

    Can't let you do that, KingofRetards.

  31. WolvenGlory on November 29th, 2008 9:25 am

    I shall have last!

  32. WolvenGlory on November 29th, 2008 9:28 am

    I just found out another awesome feature. Everyone, move your mouse over my gravatar to see him say our favorite Wolf quote!

  33. thereisnospoon on November 29th, 2008 12:39 pm

    I can't log in with my old account, and when I try to have it sent to me it doesn't recognize my email address.

  34. thereisnospoon on November 29th, 2008 12:55 pm

    Oh, well at least it recognizes my gravatar.
    But it's scaled down for some reason…

  35. KingofRetards on November 30th, 2008 6:24 am

    Yes you are last… wait…. NOW I AM LAST AGAIN!
    Btw epic win Nick Soapdish.

  36. Prof. Luigi on November 14th, 2012 2:03 am

    I am last over 3-4 years later.

  37. Mindlessinvalid on November 14th, 2012 9:43 am

    Can't let you get that last word, uhhhh…. who…?

  38. Pseudonympho on August 10th, 2013 11:21 pm


  39. KingofRetards on November 30th, 2008 6:26 am

    Testing the test of the test.

  40. KingofRetards on November 30th, 2008 6:27 am


  41. KingofRetards on November 30th, 2008 6:31 am

    YOU FIXED IT! At lest its not going out of the box for me. Shawn wins one internet.

  42. ManiacalZManiac on November 30th, 2008 6:36 am

    Ack, My Avatar isn't Showing Up….

  43. Exploderizer on November 30th, 2008 5:53 am

    I am officially better than Shawn by 7 points.

  44. BulletproofMoon on December 29th, 2008 7:34 am

    it's the ol' bulletproofmoon! I seem to have a problem…
    when I click "login to comment" so I can….well…..login to comment the screen refreshes to the top of the page and I find that I have not logged in….done this like 7 times already, any ideas?

  45. BulletproofMoon on December 29th, 2008 7:36 am

    nm, wow, this is cool, now if only my new gravitar weren't blurry >_<
