I have some good news for those of you who dislike logging in to post a comment.  If you've been around for a while, you'll know we used to allow anonymous comments.  After the site was migrated, I had a new comment tool, a new way of blogging, and some new requirements for leaving a comment.  Even though everything looks the same when you visit our site, everything behind the scenes was a little different.

At the behest of kayakermanmike, I figured out a way to turn on the CAPTCHA just for unregistered users.  This means you can login with your username/password and just post a comment, or you can skip the login process and you'll need to enter your name, email address and fill out a CAPTCHA form.  Personally, I'd rather just login and avoid filling out all the fields, but that's just me.

Some things you should be aware of if you decide to create an account:

  • You'll recieve important email updates for us.  We don't send these out often, but when we do they're important.
  • You can upload an avatar image to appear with your comments.
  • You can advertise yourself by adding your personal website, blog, MySpace page, etc to your profile.  People will be able to see a link to your site when you leave a comment.
  • You can also fill out your profile and network with out register users.

I haven't listed everything there, but there are some definite features with creating an account if you choose to do so.  One thing you can do regardless of logging in or not is be notified of responses to your comment.  You'll recieve an email letting you know someone else has added to the discussion you started or joined.

As always, let us know if you have any questions.  Take er easy and try to enjoy that weekend.
