    Thank you, Anna, for all your hard work at keeping this place running.

    Thanks for all your hard work Anna.

    I do have a question, but it’s kind of unrelated to the site; I just thought I’d put it to you because you’re so much better with computers than I am.

    This avatar shows up because of Gravatar, right? That’s good: I like my online presence to have a face. I would also rather like it if that face were my own. The problem is, I don’t want it to show up on every site I use, and if I changed it now, that would be the case. Is there a way of customising Gravatar so that you can choose which avatars you have for which site? Or does that defeat the point of it?

    If that’s the case, I suppose I’ll just have to create a new email address, or be lazy and stick to Jenna Coleman.

    Is there a reason you’re not offloading the comments to Disqus like the rest of the internet does nowadays? Curious more than anything else, not sure what I’d do if I was still in the business of setting up websites.

      By my request. I just don’t like Disqus, basically. Seen too many sites where it appears to misbehave, slow down, and generally fuck up the site experience. Most notably a while when multiple sites using Disqus would repeatedly cause my browser to jump down to the comment section on an article. Every few seconds. No matter how many times I tried to scroll back up to read it.

        Yeah, I can back that up. I’ve used Disqus before and wouldn’t recommend it at all. It’s hideous. It would take about half a day to post comments, meaning that there was no such thing as live discussion. After a couple of months I changed it to Livefyre, which is a bit better, but buggy in whole new ways. I think Anna probably made the best choice here, keeping it simple.

        (And yes, I sussed Gravatar. Go me.)

          Oh Christ, that’s a hideous avatar. My eyes are like cesspools. I’m new around here Phil and I’m already cramping your style. I’m so sorry.

        Yeah, pretty much all the sites where I read the comments (mostly webcomics) have abandoned Disqus because everyone hates it.

          The only thing that might be useful about it is as a central place to review posted comments and any replies. I can never remember what, when or where I’ve posted anything – which is why I don’t always respond when people reply to me (sorry about that!)

          Mind you only 3 of the blogs I frequent use Disqus anyway so it’s not that useful for me anyway.

          I seems like there should be a better way of tracking ones own comments across the internet in any case though …
