Introducing "Disqus" - A New Comment Technology that We're Trying on Sloopin


Hope your April is going well!  Spring is trying to come out of hibernation and signs of new life are everywhere.

In a similar fashion we thought it would be a good time to rethink some things on Sloopin.

One of the most contentious items we hear about is our comment posting policy.  We've tried being completely open.  We've tried only allowing registered Google accounts.  Most recently we allowed all comments, but had our team approve each and every one.

Well today, we're going to try something new.  It's a new technology called Disqus.  It provides a more sophisticated technology for comments and allows people various "mainstream"ways to comment.  It is the technology that huge sites use ( and to name a couple) and we're excited to see if it works for us.

You can login through Google, Facebook or Twitter or you could open up a Disqus account and comment that way.  If you're not on one of these platforms, you're probably not using the internet.

All in all, we're excited about this new technology and hope you are too.  Sloopin wouldn't be what it is if it wasn't for our readers and their comments.  So please continue to comment and if you have questions or concerns feel free to email us at
