Our comment board is open

Thanks to reader input, we’ve opened The Source to reader comments. From a tech point-of-view, it appears everything is working okay, but please email us if you’re having any trouble leaving a comment.

I also went back and opened the comment board on a few recent posts, including posts on the release Friday of the draft studies for the Regional Connector and Westside Subway Extension.

On posts that don’t have a jump page, click on the headline and the comments board will appear at the bottom of the page.

  1. I love the fact that we can comment, but it’d be nice if there were some indication on the main page as to how many comments are on a given post. If there’s a subject where I’m interested in what others have to say, I’m forced to click to see if there are any comments.

  2. Hey Robb, we’re getting the tech folk to clean up the blog layout so it’s more friendly for commenting. Your suggestion is definitely on the top of the list. Everyone: feel free to share any other technical features you’d like to see when it comes to comments. One thing I’m looking into is adding some basic HTML tags so commenters can quote others, emphasize and share links easily.

  3. Allowing comments is the right call. Sometimes feedback gets messy, or awkward, but that’s part of the magic o’ the blogosphere. People need to be able to share ideas directly.

    I’d prefer an after-posting moderation system, but this is a step in the right direction.

  4. Hurray for commenting! But why are peoples’ comments below their name? It seems to me every other blog uses the reverse format.

  5. The Regional Connector DEIR was revised on September 8. Any idea why? Or do I have to compare both pdfs side-by-side to figure out the differences?

  6. Hi Joel. I checked with the regional connector folks and they tell me that there have been no changes to the DEIR for the project since it was released. The connector’s web page may have been updated since, but no changes to the document. Hope that answers your question,
