The Seattle Times is about to upgrade its online comment tools, so people can add comments to all sorts of content at seattletimes.com, not just blogs.
You’ll also be able to rank comments so the best ones rise to the top. An explainer is posted here.
I’d like to add my own note saying thank you for all the great comments posted so far on this blog, especially considering the clunky software you’ve had to navigate to participate in the past.
Unfortunately those past comments will disappear when the new system goes live Tuesday.
We’ll still have access to older comments internally. I’ll continue to refer to them and benefit from all the great conversations and feedback.
Enjoy the new system.
