    I noticed just a few minutes ago that the comments on RtD stopped working again - in fact, they did so just as I was going through them again. Anyone else having this issue? I don't think it's just me - it's on two browsers. I think it's Disqus being a pain in the ass again.

    I don't see an explicit problem with the last two posts. If your issue is comments disappearing and reappearing, that's Disqus, which starts to lose its mind at about 400-500 comments.

    I did notice as of yesterday that the avatar images will occasionally morph back into grey silhouettes if you mouse over them--most notably the new RtD avatar dragon.

    (I don't think Disqus is set up to handle such vigorous topics. It scares them.)

    We have very high comment volume nowadays. That's why the LSP posts exist; the Saturday post was getting 800-1000 comments by Tuesday and really screwing up Disqus.

    So you're saying if we can recruit enough new commenters we'll need daily posts? ;)

    Or just start talking more, if that's possible.

    Ive been trying since last night to get here through Google, and right now the only way is to find a previous post and work my way into the RtD site. You don't suppose we broke stuff???

    Cas has contacted the sysadmin, and I’m here now, so it may be ok.

    Ha! I'm a Disqus moderator, not a sysadmin or staff for the forum.

    well, I meant your presence was proof that all the plugs were plugged in and all the lights were working again.
    (Just nod and smile and say thank you)
    ;)
