A Comment on Comments

I’ve been working tonight to change the style of our comments here to a more threaded style so it’s easier to follow exactly who’s responding to whom.

To reply to a specific person’s comment, just click the reply button to the right and your reply will then show up underneath the comment to which you are responding.

Clear as mud?

      1. As Mr. Godfrey from HAC used to say: it’s ok to talk to yourself; it’s even ok to answer yourself; but if you talk to yourself and answer yourself and yourself says, “huh?” then you have a problem. 😉

    1. For example, this is me leaving a comment.

      You’ll also notice the quote style has changed a bit too. Just so you’re aware.

      1. This is awesome!! This site keeps getting better and better! And I love the SFL Fundy Gear stuff on CafePress. Are you going to add the “Failure” t-shirt? 🙄

      2. We’re going to be adding all kinds of fun stuff in the coming days. I’m also working on some deals to get the stuff already there to be cheaper.

        I don’t know about all of you but I’m not likely to spend $27 on a t-shirt. Just sayin.

        1. I bought 1 cause I really wanted that creed t-shirt, but wasn’t planning to buy another unless they get cheaper. g

        2. I’d like to see a mug with the creed! I don’t think I can get away with wearing it in public, since I work for Fundy U, but It’s my favorite of the slogans/pictures and a mug would be great!

  1. Humph! What is this website coming to? 👿 How dare you leave the “old paths” and follow the “worldly” threading style? Are you even saved? (Sorry, couldn’t resist!)

    Oooh, I’m going to have fun with the new smilies! 😀

    1. No doubt! The old style commenting worked just fine for my grandpappy, and I suspect was authorized by King Jimmy himself.

        1. Or we could call this the SFLC stuff fundies like commenting. Or if you are a detracter you could call it the Satans faithful lovers commenting. One of these days my sick sense of humor is going to get me in trouble :mrgreen:

  2. These 😈 👿 smiles have the appearance of evil, and this one 😎 is a little too rock and roll. Remove and replace with a high and tight flat top smiley with a smug side mouth.

    1. I would preemptively click my own heresy button, thus depriving all from the fun of branding me a heretic.

      Other alternatives to the like/dislike button:
      Amen/where’s that in the bible?
      Preach it!/get behind me, satan
      Praise gid!/see you in hell (from heaven)

    2. LOL! Darrel, we’re going to need you to come in on Saturday to take care of that. If you could do that, that would be greeeat. ::sips coffee::

    1. I agree also. My day would be absolutely made each and everyday to seem someone click “Amen!”. I think I would have the guilty pleasure of a few…dozen…plus…clicks.

  3. It seems to me that it’s a regular Rapture-rama, folks! The Rapturitians have thus far officially predicted that Christ would return in 1844, 1874, 1878, 1910, 1914, 1918, 1925, 1941, 1975, 1980, 1984, 1988, 1989, 1994, 2000, 2005 and now new for Fall 2010 – sometime in October, before Halloween. But if that doesn’t work out there’s always another ‘Biblical scholar’s’ date for the Rapture: May 21, 2011! The question is, should I invest in new aluminum siding & gutters or “The Rapture HatchⓇ by RONCO”?
    Things that make you go “Hmmmm…”

      1. Exactly! I’m not even sure what this word ‘change’ is. My IFB dictionary doesn’t have it listed. I’m pretty sure, although there is zero biblical proof, that I must separate. I’ll consult my pastor in the morning when I’m ‘in my place’.

  4. I feel like this new way of commenting might be hurting D’s testimony. I’m just concerned about his soul so I’ll be praying for him.

    1. Be sure to tell all your friends about the ungodly change that has been imposed here. I mean so that your friends can pray intelligently for all concerned.

  5. Darrell, This site looks so worldly now. Next you’re going to tell the female commenters that they can be in panys when they post 😉

  6. …and in case you’re full and are planning to head back home for that nap- “Thank you Lord for givin’ the food that they’ll be eatin’, yet now I’ll have to pass, or else I will have…” (Set to the tune of the Adams Family theme song)

  7. The only thing I do not like about this comment style is that you have to read the whole darn thing for new posts…..then search out yours for replies.

    Is there a way to make that easier? ❓

    1. You can subscribe to the comments feed, but that doesn’t tell you where the comments fit in the thread. Other blogs let you sign up emails when there’s a response to your post. Maybe that’s something Darrell could add?

    2. I’ll see what I can do about the e-mail thing.

      The “problem” is that there are just too many darn comments. If you all weren’t such a chatty bunch…

      1. I love the comments! Makes me know that I just may not be as crazy as I think I am. 😉

        I do like the new format, this style just tends to confuse me sometimes. However, I am easily confused so there ya go. 😛
