Introducing A Simpler Blog Commenting System

  • Posted: Mon 21 Jun 2010

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking on commenting recently. Most of our information is out on the web already, why is it that we still have to re-enter it every time we want to make a blog post comment? Good design is all in the details and the only reason for the email form is to keep in contact, I can do that on twitter. Besides, isn’t this a little overkill?

I am not a big fan of authentication badges, due to the very fact that people are not quite sure what they will be giving up or posting by clicking. I am even hesitant to click on the badges when there is no clear call-to-action what they actually will do.

I decided to come up with a completely custom commenting system that is a super fast, simple and auth-free way to collect all the data needed. The solution – a wordpress twitter hybrid commenting system.

It’s easy. You enter in your twitter username and comment and this pulls the avatar (transient thanks to Joe Stump’s http://tweetimag.es/), full name, location and website url. The obvious caveat is that you have to have a twitter account, but I anticipate the target audience to have one already, even if not active.

Next step… comments across the web are more fragmented than ever. There needs to be a unified way to federate them together (ie Google Wave commenting example across platform).

Interested to know what you guys think, leave a message in the groovy comments below.

    Jun 22nd, 2010 from The Netherlands

  33. Joey Primiani

    In current comments formatting, there is nothing to stop you from leaving a comment as someone else either. I believe overall, this ease will increase communication on the site and identification verification won’t be that big of an issue. Akismet still does a great job at preventing spam.

    That you do not authenticate — or even attempt the most basic of checks — with Twitter (simple enough using OAuth, though it does add a step to the process) renders this useless, I’m sorry to say. The above comment was not left by biz, for example. 🙂

  43. Matt Vickers

    Jeff, I don’t think the point is to create a super secure, post your life type comment system. Most people leaving a comment aren’t going to put someone else’s name. If I want to talk to joey, I’ll put down my twitter ID. This is one of those rare occasions where no auth isn’t necessarily the end of the world.

    Jun 22nd, 2010 from Winnipeg, Manitoba

  44. Enrique Dans

    What if someone else uses my username here?

    Jun 22nd, 2010 from ÜT: 40.438768,-3.689195

    Now you need nested comments and you’re good to go!

    Joey, HAI! <3 This was retweeted by someone I follow, small world! 😀 This is way sweet… love it!

    Jun 22nd, 2010 from USA

  48. teddyrised

    Ditto that. I feel that this is a great idea, although there have to be some way that allows us to authenticate the identity of the user before publishing the comment – a similar system such as OpenID could be adopted, but I believe it’ll be cumbersome.

    Matt is right about authentication though – it simply serves no reason to abuse a person’s Twitter identity, unless we’re talking about a malicious bot. If I spent the last 5 minutes writing a comment the last thing I want to do is to credit it to another person on Twitter 😉

    I have to second your opinion that comment management systems have gotten too diversified for people to manage – we have the default WP commenting system, Disqus, BackType and a lot other. There is a need to call for an open standard and feel that this might be the best way out.

    It’s a great idea. Without some way to prove I am who I say I am though, I think it would be abused if put to widespread use. I imagine a heated argument where one person posts a concession as the other. Childish, yes, but those people are out there.

    Very cool JP. I came across this via @laughingsquid. It might be cool to see how this could work with IntenseDebate (which offers a lot of cool features like comment threading, email subscriptions, and a way to keep track of all of your comments, among others). Maybe an IntenseDebate plugin? If you’re interested, check out http://www.intensedebate.com/docs/plugin-resources for info on our Plugins API. Let me know if you have any questions or want to chat further – michael at intensedebate.com

    Jun 22nd, 2010 from Chicago, Illinois

  87. Michael Koenig

    Just a quick follow-up to my comment above: per your screenshot of IntenseDebate above, pretty much all of those components can be removed from the comment section (Facebook Connect, Twitter Sign-in, OpenID, WordPress.com login, PollDaddy Polls, After the Deadline, email subscriptions, and guest commenter info fields). You can have a completely clean comment form if you’d like. Still, I love the style of what you’ve done and I think it’d be cool to bounce around some ideas and ways we could work together.

    1) Looking into making it an intensedebate or wordpress plugin (thanks to the official guys for contacting me)

    2) As I said before, yes you can comment as anyone. In current comments formatting (wo auth), there is nothing to stop you from leaving a comment as someone else either. I believe overall, this ease will increase communication on the site and identification verification won’t be that big of an issue. I want people to leave connected to each other, not me. Akismet still does a great job at preventing spam.

    3) Clean, simple and fast was my main intent – doing one thing really well. Don’t want to get feature crazy.

    ^ that was me. Not trying to dog the system that you have here, but do you have plans/ideas to deal with that?

    Thanks everyone – I really appreciate it! 🙂 Ben, it is moderated by IP. Threading is something that adds complexity, don’t feel it is necessary for this implementation – keeping it fast and simple.

    Howdy! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thank you!

    I do not comment, but I browsed a bunch of responses on Introducing A Simpler Blog Commenting System Joey Primiani | Pioneering the New Internet Revolution. I actually do have a few questions for you if you don’t mind. Is it simply me or do some of the remarks appear like they are written by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are posting on other online social sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Would you list of every one of all your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
