An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob
There's been some anticipatory anguish about our pending move from vBulletin to Disqus.
Let me reiterate that we're making this change reluctantly but for various well-considered reasons, chief among them the cost and hassle of keeping vBulletin linked to our diavlog pages so that comments appear under the video player. (Also, even after the cost and hassle, the comments appear there in strict chronological order, making the conversational flow hard to follow.) And we think it’s very important that the comments do appear on the diavlog pages. We're going to need your help to keep the conversations going there, so even if you have doubts about Disqus, I hope for the sake of Bloggingheads that you'll try to make it work.
By popular demand, we’re going to experiment with keeping the vBulletin forum open for those of you who want to keep using the platform to talk about non-diavlog-related stuff. But please, please, please don't use vBulletin threads to comment on the diavlogs. That would draw your energy away from the diavlog pages just when we need you to help us keep those pages smart and vibrant. The Disqus platform, being more accessible than vBulletin, will probably bring more newcomers, so we want you to be there setting an example, helping to sustain the spirit of constructive contention that you’ve built here.
