At the end of July, I announced some big changes to the comment section of my blog, and it seems that the changes were all generally well received… well, nobody mentioned that they hate them, so I assume they were pretty much well received. More importantly, I think the comment section makes it easier to have a discussion, which helps to enhance the articles.
Yesterday evening, I made one more noticable change to the comment section, and I hope you like (and will use) it. I have added “Agree” and “Disagree” links to each comment that is received. If you choose, you can click on the agree or disagree link, and the total number of other visitors who agreed or disagreed with the comment will be listed.
Although I wish everyone who reads my blog would comment (and comment more regularly), I think this feature will allow people to participate more passively.I hope this passive participation leads to more active participation.
What do you think about this new feature?
