Comments, anyone?

I'm trying an experiment on my stream (this is not available to the public) where I've embedded a commenting system called Disqus. Go have a look and let me know what you think.

I just came across Disqus a few days ago - Sitepoint's new design blog is using it. Bookmarked it for later in case Streams wouldn't have feedback. I figured if S.P. and all those other "big" sites are using it, it must be reliable.

This is not available to the public yet. I just added it to my stream so people could see it, play with it and offer opinions on whether we should make it an option on all streams.

I think this as an option would be great with the option to use or not use it of course, but it's a great idea. Would love to see it be a little bit more obvious though as it took me a bit to realize I had to click the link of a particular post to see the comment info. I don't know much about stream stuff so maybe that's obvious to a lot of others, but it wasn't to me lol. Maybe a way to add a comment to the page telling people how to comment would suffice, dunno, but it wasn't obvious to me and this old brain of mine :P

Like it!!! Would love to be able to implement this, or something CCooler to our own Streams. :D

I'm with JoAnn though, it was a little tough to find, even after a few cups of coffee. Once I stumbled onto it though, it seems pretty great. Can't wait.

Can you help me understand why it was hard to find? It's on each post page, just like you would see it on any blog post, forum thread, news story, or any other page that has comments.

I think it was just that the link that you posted earlier, took us to the summary (listing) of your posts. Once I figured out that the title was clickable, I then saw it at the bottom of the post and yes, it became easy to use.

In my defense, my daughter was sitting next to me on the couch, her blondeness must have somehow transferred over to me somehow. :P
