you may have noticed that Delimiter has reverted to the usual WordPress comments system overnight. The reasons are pretty simple: While the Disqus system offers advanced functionality over WordPress’ native comments system, it has suffered a series of outages, errors, slowdowns and other problems recently that have led to great frustration for me in using it on Delimiter.
Last night, I attempted to install the IntenseDebate comments platform as a replacement. It’s a great system, and it installed fine on Delimiter Marketplace. However, perhaps due to the volume of comments on Delimiter itself (in excess of 33,000), after nine hours of migration time, IntenseDebate had not been able to sync our current comments with it. I will contact IntenseDebate and see if they have a resolution for this.
What this means is that for now, we’re back to the old WordPress comments system. I know this is annoying, and I myself vastly prefer the more modern options, but right now those options are buggy. My apologies.
