Using IE11 – see if this registers.
Devolve, devolve, devolve – it’s the best way to offload decision making.

Threaded replies… Yay!

Threaded replies are a mixed blessing. They’re pretty essential on big sites (such as Watts Up With That) when there are literally hundreds of commenters posting thousands of comments, but on more cosy sites such as TW, linear replies with quotes works well. It keeps the layout clear and everyone in the loop.

My guess is general election. I’d love the EU to refuse an extension, but I don’t see it happening, and if we don’t have an election, we have the opposition controlled remainer parliament controlling things, which won’t end well.

If we go past 31st October without leaving, then Cummings will presumably have to re-print all his business cards…

You don’t need the larger font for indented.

The new look is nice.

Your vote button CSS could use some work, white text on light grey not easy to read πŸ™‚

Totally – keep it simple. And once the site is back up and running I will add it to the *very* small list of sites on my ad-blocker whitelist πŸ™‚

Just a thought re comments and registration – if the site allows you to use any name, then it would be very easy for a nefarious poster to pose as a regular user by simply typing in their regular handle.

Perhaps registration should be optional, which would allow regular users to ‘own’ their name, with unregistered posts showing as Anonymous? Applies to TW.com too I think.

Unregistered posts are not shown as Anon at TW. Yes, pilfering names can happen, but it’s pretty rare over there – very occasional piss taking and the like from what I see? Which is down to the type of people who post there.

If you going to have optional registering, then “to have that protect the name” might be an asset, but to have all other posts as Anon would be a backward step from TW, imo.

Those that care can use gravatar on the TW site (I believe it keys to the email field), so anyone else will know if someone is impersonating them. The same would work here.

It also allows the comedy posting names, which may or may not be a feature on a “serious” site πŸ™‚

OK, so having navigated the site and read through the new articles on CT this morning, I’m not a fan of the new ‘blog’ format with the bulk of the article displayed on the home page, truncated to 500 characters. Each time I’ve started reading, then found the ‘Read More’ link below the page fold (17″ monitor here so don’t get masses on the screen). Then have to click the link and scroll down to try and find the point where I got to on the home page in order to finish off reading the article in full. My personal… Read more »
