Firstly, I know that some of you were getting irritated with the re-captcha spam test that asked you to type the words shown to you into a box before your comment would be submitted.
I had to introduce something because the level of spam the site was attracting was making it impossible to moderate. However, I heard your cries!
I have now introduced another system which means there is nothing else to do, after you have made your comment, other than to press the ‘Submit comment’ button.
Modification number two means that on the ‘Comments’ (see image right), you can now see far more of previous comments which gives more of an indication as to what someone has said previously on a topic.
Modification number three means that you can now have your picture (ideally!) on icethesite! All you need to do is submit your chosen image to Gravatar (Global avatar) and provided the email address you use to sign up (it’s free!) and the one you use to comment on icethesite is one and the same, your image will show when you make a comment.
Posts on the site have had over 5,700 comments since commenting was first introduced – I hope these changes will mean we’ll be at 6,000 in no time!
