I still don't have a good solution
Speaking of feedback, comments, and criticisms, I wanted to write about it for a moment.
First, I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to contact me and provide me feedback on the site. You have no idea how valuable it is to both as a motivator, and as a means to know when something is off. I appreciate and give my full attention to each and every person and idea thrown at me. Thank you!
From the beginning I have been considering how to let everyone interact with the site and posts. It would be so much easier for folks to leave a comment on a page (or forum) directly. Particularly if it allows everyone to view the conversation.
This method comes with a price, though. A price in both user privacy concerns as well as the fact that comments are no longer mine (pixls.us) to manage and archive. I don’t know that I’m willing to pay that price yet just for convenience.
If anything, I may set it up as a temporary solution while I work on something a little more long term.
From what I’ve seen so far, Discourse is the long term solution that I would like to get up and running.
It’s also “Yet-Another-Thing” I should thank darix on
#darktable for pointing me to.
The only drawback at the moment is that my hosting provider doesn’t have what I need to get it running (relatively easily). There are a couple of options for hosted solutions that I may go with, but I want to focus on getting the content ready to go for an “official” launch before I get too far down that rabbit hole.
Yes, I know there’s a need for having some sort of commenting system available for everyone to participate! I’ll get one running just as soon as I can.
