Problems With the Comments



We have been having problems with Disqus again so it's back to blogger comments. Play nice, don't feed the trolls :)


For blogger comments all you need is a google account or an open ID account.

I really like using disqus but there does seem to be a lot of teething problems doesn't there?

Gozde said...

Yeah :( Lots of people emailed us during the weekend that they couldn't load the comments. We don't want anyone to be left out so we'll deal with the trolls when the time comes. For now, we want everyone to be able to comment :))

LM said...

Goz, did the number of comments have anything to do with it? Seems like the volume was considerably higher under Disquis than with Blogger. Just simple curiosity.

Thanks so much for all the work you and the others do to keep this up and running.

Loisada said...

Love all the options Disqus offers... when it lets me on! Always have to reload comments 5/6 times before I'm successful, and am often forced to just give up after too many fails. Glad to know I'm not the only one Disqus hates, but sorry the switch isn't working out better for you ladies. There's got to be a way to make Robsessing more fun and less work for you!

I liked the fact that the newest comments were on top, & that it was so easy to subscribe by email, but it was absolutely making me nuts this weekend. It was so slow, & it would do that stop/start thing so every time I tried to reply to someone, the comments would stop/start all the way down to the bottom & I couldn't stop it. Thanks goodness it wasn't a heavy Rob weekend!

Gozde said...

Hi guys,

I don't think it was the number of comments. We once got over 1000 comments on blogger and some sites that use Disqus gets hunderds and hundreds of comments.

I think the HTML just didn't fit well into ours. I emailed disqus, maybe they can offer a solution :(

I don't want to see anyone frustrated over not being able to comment :)

I thought it was my computer over the weekend as it is on the blink and hope to change it. It was so so slow and couldn't get in at one point. Thanks for looking at it Goz - and thanks for the gorgeous picture of Rob!

ukhotrob said...

Back in the land of Rob after a few days away!

ukhotrob said...

Did I miss much while I was away - I feel like a big kid when I can't check in with Rob!

i love a happy relaxed rob!

Back to the old fashion way! It's a shame but at least now I know it's got nothing to do with my computer. I also had to reloast disqus about 5 or 6 times before my comments would appear...
Anyway, as long as the blog works, and we get load of Rob...
Have a nice day ladies.

TotallyRobbed said...

Thanks Gozde!

I emailed and I emailed Disqus too. I love Disqus, it's fantastic to never miss when someone comments or replies to you and it's nice to click on "like" but recently I couldn't navigate to find the posts to click on "like" button(unless I put the kettle on first!).

TotallyRobbed said...

One of the many things I was googling yesterday was a RAM upgrade and and external hard disk to speed things up. It would have been (and still will be) worthwhile investment for Rob and this wonderful site!

Pet73 said...

Ok, just a test. It's working fine for me. I never really got used to Disqus (surly, because I'm no heavy user). So I'm probably the only one glad about the change back ;p. Anyway, thank you girls for all your efforts to keep this site running!

WhyIstheRumAlwaysGone said...

I had to give up commenting because of disqus too... it's a kind of relief to find old Blogger back again! Just as an aside, disqus did not keep the trolls away - I've seen quite a few nasty messages from time to time. A blogger friend of mine also told me you could easily switch identities on disqus all the time, using fictitious emails and yet being able to comment, under any name you wished. So I guess no system is completely troll-safe anyway:))

HeneciaD said...

ohhh so will we be back to disqus again?

HeneciaD said...

and I really like Robs pic with Tom they are looking so funny and the smile Rob is just the most beautiful man all over the world

HeneciaD said...

and forgot to say that pic makes me want to sing some song from van morisson idk why but it looks like they are having fun in some free and old place than the music comes and I want to dance with Rob LOL did I sound so stupid

I had to stop commenting too because of disques. I have to reload all the time. It sucks and limits my already limited time. Please Gozde, find something else!!!

solas said...

I have a pleated skirt the same tartan as Tom's shirt. :-)

Lisa said...

Hi everyone. I did not have any trouble with disqus but I am new to this site and have only been commenting for a couple weeks. Only Rob could wear that maroon tux!

solas said...

I had problmes with Discus where once I commented, I couldn't comment again until I exited and signed in again. But I liked the choice of seeing the posts as earlier or later ones, and I liked getting emailed the responses. I hope it can be tweaked so we all can use it enjoyably!

kazrob said...

I gotta say, i still prefer disqus. You cant reply to individual posts here and your comment is right at the bottom!
Anyway, doesn't he look gorgeous in the blue shirt and sunglasses?
I could eat him with a spoon!

Cindygal said...

I'm glad we're back with blogger...90% of the time I use my mobile internet and I couldnt access/read comments on disqus using my mobile.

Cindygal said...

....I missed reading everyone's comments!!

ex pat said...

not sure if this will work for me i have issues getting an account due to numerous people using main computer here

ukhotrob said...

Have to say I am happy with both types of commenting ... now that I have worked out where I was going wrong with this one!!!

Re: the pics above - Rob should always wear blue - definitely his best colour! beautiful smiley rob ;-)

I want a Rob avi on my blogger comments. I felt ever so proud of myself when I managed it on disqus.

I like disqus, I like the little active profile thing, so that you could see who has replied to your comments and it kept things compartmentalised and in order.

Can I do this with blogger?
I'm not fussed, i'm easy, i'll give everything a go once ;)

Unknown said...

I'm just testing to see if I have worked out how to change my username and a piccy.
Oh God, if this has worked I may actually squee with excitement!

jmm4832 said...

Damn, I liked Disqus a lot and never had any problems with it! Oh well.

rpattzgirl survived Rob! said...

Hi everyone

Same here, tried all weekend to get on & say hello but it would not load comments... finally just gave up...

Ana73 said...

I tried too but wouldn't reload. i would post a comment and not appear, at least i think it didn't appear. so i gave up, i was just a lurker for the past few days. hope they can fix it.

HeartThePretty_EvenMore said...

@Ana73 - Did you get all caught up with the reading? UtAT and EP. I email with some thought on both.

Hey everyone,
I love the Disqus style but the tech problems are very frustrating. It always runs very slow for me and it is difficult to scroll through the comments. I, too, had to keep logging in and out to get the comments posted. I hope the tech problems get ironed out and thanks ladies for all your efforts on making this the'Happy Place'.

Marina H said...

@kerazy60

You should squee! Look, you got your avatar the same! Yay! Wish i could change mine *grumble*

Oh look, Rob, ahh...now i'm not mad anymore.

ROBsessed89_MIAwithROB said...

Testing...i hope it still works :p

Ana73 said...

@Heart - Oh yes I did :) My son was sick again this weekend so i was home reading and reading. Both were great. Talk to you more about this later :)

Gwen Cooper 426 said...

Wow, it's kinda like old home week here on this thread!

LOL, this flipping between blogger/disqus is going to give me whiplash. (Seriously, I am so kidding!) Either/or works for me---well, when it actually functions... ; )

I think I'm on the side of a "troll free zone", tbh. Makes things much more enjoyable.

Hey to all! Ever had a summer where you felt like a grown adult every single minute? Yeah. I really want a Peter Pan fall and/or winter.

Hugs,
Gwen

Ana73 said...

@gwen - glad to see you here...good luck on finding neverland in the fall & winter.

but at least you always have rob to think about to take you away from RL.

soton17 said...

Hey is Rob wearing his NM Jacket and shirt????

Unknown said...

YEAH! I like Blogger better anyway!!!!!!

acullengirl said...

Why does a pic of Rob smiling while wearing hotschmexy sunglasses make me happy
Right because he's RobertFuckingPattinson

FILTSM!!!!!!!!!

RobFanAlways said...

I really liked disqus because you could get a thread going. Is this going to be temporary or are we permanently on blogger comment format?

Lauriesiana said...

What solas said earlier today:

"I had problmes with Discus where once I commented, I couldn't comment again until I exited and signed in again. But I liked the choice of seeing the posts as earlier or later ones, and I liked getting emailed the responses. I hope it can be tweaked so we all can use it enjoyably!"

Ditto every word! I agree with everything she said a/b Disqus. My preference would be some type of forum/message board, but I can learn to live with whatevah the mods come up with. :)

Lauriesiana said...

testing 1-2-3

sorry ya'll... just checking to see if my lil pic of Rob w/ the LA Swamp Tours cap shows up

(btw... love him in the beanie too!) ;)

Anonymous said...

Where is Dean? Does anyone know. I haven't seen him since mid-July. Just wondered.

LLOVESEDWARD/ROBERT said...

I really like this picture of Robert. He really looks like he is enjoying himself and having a good time!
He looks so ADORABLE!!

Every time I try to leave a comment I have a problem with it.

Wow his life has surely changed since he Tom used to pal around on the streets in LA? He must've been waiting for ks to make up her mind back then.

Anonymous said...

robsessive-HOTTINSON! LOL@U! HEHEHEHEHEHEHEH!!!!!! haven't seen a user name that good since heart the pretty or rpattzgirlsurvivedthepretty or oh hell there are a million of us witty ladies on here and I did like the way disqus would let you post to someone else's post right underneath it so you could see who commented about your comment but this is okay I guessyou gotta say @ and their name to let that person know you're talking to them.

Delle1 said...

Gozde....don't know if you comment on Eclipse site but there "disqus" is really great to use...it's fast to scroll and when you reply via email it takes you straight to the parent comment....don't know if that helps or not....

jessegirl said...

GwenC...yeah, old home week.
I never did switch. Too much work.
I think all sites, all formats, have trouble with trolls. I've seen administrators on other sites bemoan and make executive proclamations too. It's sad.
In my case, I just go back to lurking and leave comments for others.

I didn't actually read many comments when Robsessed was with Disquis because for some reason my screen became 'jumpy' and I became nauseous, literally. I really like the look of this screen much better; for some reason it is kinder on my eyes, or something.

There were some advantages,-I liked seeing the replies attached to the original comment.

Anyway hello to some of the 'old' regulars I've not communicated with in ages: Loisada, Solas, Nancy, Rum, HeartthePretty, GwenCooper, and the rest.

Hope to communicate with you more now.
