The new Comment Section of The Internet is here!
One of the coolest aspects of building your own website is seeing all of the unique people that happen to come across it and being able to interact with them. That's why having comments on my website has always been intriguing. I used to have facebook comments, then disqus, and now I finally have my own comment section!
Instead of having a generic comment section, though, I wanted to make mine unique. This design harkens back to the simplicity of the early web. There's no sophisticated ranking algorithms, usernames associated with the comments, or even replies. Every comment is on the same exact playing field. I like to think of it as the blank graffiti wall of The Internet. A long list of text where you can see scroll through and see the ebbs and flows of discourse on The Internet.
Note that for now, I'm still using Disqus for comments on individual pages on my website; the official Comment Section of The Internet is what's getting the new design.
How It Works
Simply type your comment in the text box and click the Submit button and your comment will be added to The Comment Section of The Internet! A random font color will be selected for your comment.
Benefits of Having a User Account
Unregistered users can still post on The Comment Section of The Internet, but registered users have some extra features available to them:
- Limit of 5 comments per day does not apply to you when logged in
- You can view your comments on your profile page: www.theinternet.io/author/dashboard/
- From your profile page, you can change the font color, background color, and outline for each comment you've made while logged in.
I can't wait to see what the wonderful people of the internet want to talk about!
