Testing Out A New Commenting System On Bolt Beat

What up all, just wanted to give some site news to you all. We are giving a new commenting system a test on a few of the posts on the site. You can check it out on Arnie’s piece yesterday about Who is to blame for the Chargers defense or on the piece from earlier today about Danario Alexander and Malcom Floyd.

A little bit of info on the commenting system, it is called Sidelines. It is kind of like a Reddit for sports fans that like to comment on articles. They build a group of good commenters for each team or sport and they write a bunch of comments on different posts. It could add to the conversation. Maybe.

Take a look at the commenting system and send us your thoughts on it here.  I chose that screen shot of the comments because Katherine Webb’s eyes told me too. I just couldn’t help it.

    Interesting. My first thoughts, it’s like inviting your family over for a chat, and watch the game. You leave to go get more refreshments, come back and there are complete strangers wall to wall in your home.
    I was having some good discussions and poof they are gone…

        Don’t get me wrong i’m all for brining in new people to add to the discussion, just not at the expense of losing the ones that are already here.

          Update: Hey Bolt Beat fam i don’t know about you, but i can no longer see the comments i made in disqus. For some reason the “new format” has deleted them, maybe i’m wrong. So for the time being, i follow the the articles on facebook, and the ones that have the “new” format, i will be making my thoughts on the articles there.
          Hope to hear from ya’ll that do have face book.

      Oh Peetie,
      You are soooo politically incorrect.
      Love your reply and quietly LMAO trying to get to sleep. Helped me relax. Wonder if you’ll even be notified of this comment by Disqus?

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        Miraculously, yes…. it did notify me. Glad it made you chuckle. You wouldn’t be the first person I put to sleep on here.
