I received this email this morning:
I don’t know if you realize this, but I do not think your comments are working the way you expect. When I try to view them, I get the following message:
Nothing for you here … yet. But as you comment with Disqus and follow other Disqus users, you will start to receive notifications here, as well as a personalized feed of activity by you and the people you follow. So get out there and participate in some discussions!
I switched yesterday to the NEW! and IMPROVED! DISQUS 2012! Anybody else getting this message? Drop me an email. Supposedly I can still switch back.
Oh hell, now it’s doing it to ME!
Commenting (or reading the comments, anyway) is now a THREE-step process:
1) Click on the “Comment” button, then
2) Click on the “Discussion” pulldown menu, then
3) Click on “Oldest”
And the message thread will appear, oldest post first. I’m hoping it’s a glitch on Disqus’ end.
UPDATE II: The “upgrade” has been rolled back for at least the time being. Commenting seems to be working properly now.
