SLAMonline PSA: New Commenting System


Yo all. As you can probably see, the site is going through some minor changes, including the obvious and long overdue upgrade to the commenting system. As a result, it’ll appear as though all comments from the past have disappeared; they haven’t, they’re just taking a little while (a couple of days at the most) to transfer over because there were so many of them. All of this is an effort to better the commenting system that so many of you have complained about in recent months, so hopefully a few minor kinks in the beginning will be worth the soon-to-be new and improved SLAMonline. Stay with us.

Thanks!

  • nbk

    holla! good lookin out SLAM

  • AlbertBarr

    Interesting.

  • T-Ray

    I hope this kills the trolls who only show up every so often.

  • tom

    long long loooong overdue!

  • TheWhiteMarkPrice

    Will take some gettin used to

  • nbk

    now you can post pictures and all of that business. i’m too excited.

  • nbk

    if the commenting system tracked comments back to 2006 i would probably have in the hundreds of thousands.

  • TheWhiteMarkPrice

    Didn’t mean to post a pic, just tryin to change profile pic

  • fruizm

    Finally!!!!

  • Royal

    Test

  • Redd

    You’re welcome guys, I was the one to recommend this. (there’s the possibility they thought it up themselves). But let’s not consider it, this system is slow.

  • T-Ray

    Damn you can post pictures as responses?! It’s about to be a funny year of hoop talk with you guys.

  • nbk

    a lot of people recommended this.

  • Redd

    Not specifically the IGN comment system but still you know I’m jk, it’s not cause of me.

  • TheWhiteMarkPrice

    Now I think I got it figured out

  • Redd

    wonder if GIFs work..

  • nbk

    damn so i got kicked out and already had to recreate my profile lol

  • TheWhiteMarkPrice

    Yeah it will.

  • Redd

    you gotta register bud.

  • TheWhiteMarkPrice

    It did that to me too.

  • http://twitter.com/AjpDos Allen Powell

    This is Allen P

  • http://twitter.com/AjpDos Allen Powell

    So, this is what I’m rolling with as the new name for the system. Might as well link it with Twitter

  • shutup

    Took a while but I think Slam finally got this right. Here’s hoping that that the pics all stay semi-offensive or below, although something tells, this will not be the case.

  • Redd

    U MONSTER

  • nbk

    i did but it kicked me out, and the e-mail i used wasn’t receiving the confirmation, so i had no password. it was a mess for minute

  • Redd

    Oh dang, well hope it doesn’t happen again. You’re right, this’ll be a mess for a bit.

  • nbk

    yeah, i have 2 profiles now somehow. and it won’t let me fix the issue with the original one to merge it with the new one. lol

  • Caboose

    First comment on the new system! Will definitely take getting used to but it’s definitely an upgrade over the old system. What’s up everybody?

  • nbk

    i know, it’s a lot like reddit too. a lot of us also said they should use Disqus, which is exactly what this is.

  • Redd

    Oh same happened to me, I made up an email though so I didn’t care but I finally caved and used an actual email. It cuts out all the hassle, hope that helps.

  • nbk

    my main issue is the first nbk that i registered is linked to my twitter. and this one isn’t. i just want to merge the profiles. it won’t even give me the option of signing into the first account though. so idk what the hell happened

  • nbk

    so we will be able to reply directly too people and can just ignore the ridiculous comments. that has to be the best part of the new system

  • Redd

    Did u try logging in with your Twitter account? I mean this thing just began so I suggest you revoke the access on your Twitter & merge the Twitter on this account which I hope u registered with an actual email.

  • Caboose

    Gotta agree with that. I hope the reply system isn’t too abused though.

  • nbk

    yeah, i’ve already revoked and try to re access it. but it’s literally a duplicate profile with the same username, i already sent an e-mail to the disquss help center. should be fixed soon enough

  • The Mauve Avenger

    I wasn’t too attached to the old system anyway

  • Redd

    Everyone will be ignoring me…clearly lol.

  • nbk

    naw man, i was talking about the crazy people who just say outlandish shit

  • Redd

    I disliked this status.

  • Redd

    Say sorry.

  • Redd

    I’ll say a prayer for you friend..

  • Redd

    So me? LOL. This should be interesting..

  • 1982

    Thanks SLAM. Anyone else getting crazy lag on a smart phone?

  • Redd

    Ok guys, start following me & liking my status. I’m aiming for Top Commentator, if you dislike me EVER I will smack you with a twig.

  • Redd

    Yep, get used to it, it’s like that on IGN too. I predict a Slamonline App though.

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    So is this going to get rid of nbk_troll? lol

  • davidR

    @nbk, how is it you’re always causing issues with the commenting system? i mean, multiple nbk’s again? haha

  • The Mauve Avenger

    lol nah just an opinion holmes

  • Redd

    Sherlock? Lol, I’m jk.

  • Redd

    Wow somebody actually hit the like. I was waiting for like 5 dislikes lol.

  • The Mauve Avenger

    lol cornier than Nebraska

  • nbk

    lol, this one wasn’t my fault

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/NVGJJPAZDF7PYA7QPJLJRQWDBE Jordan Carter

    Your lame if you troll this site

  • nbk

    now hopefully we have an actual basketball discussion at some point….

  • Black Mamba

    This is awesome. So is the first comment at the bottom or the top?

  • Stevethecannon

    Tufff layout but im getting lag on my computer though

  • nbk

    under the discussion tab, you can filter it however you want them to show up.

  • http://twitter.com/_DFrance DFrance

    My only issue with this is that the browser at my job doesn’t support it and the Web speeds on my cell at work suck.

  • Black Mamba

    Test how do you guys get profile pictures?

  • Redd

    Expect a SlamOnline app now. But, also expect a lot more comments and possibly a mess at times.

  • http://www.reverbnation.com/savagemuzicgroup T-Ray

    Yea I’m getting mad lag on my iphone and laptop but I’m sure it will get better in the next few days. Like Redd said they might even make an app.

  • Redd

    It’s for non-Laker fans only.

  • http://www.reverbnation.com/savagemuzicgroup T-Ray

    You have to set up your Disqus profile. They will send you a link in your email and follow that to set up your profile.

  • Junior Taylor

    What is this? I can’t get jiggy with this sh*t

  • nbk

    That has to be JTaylor, what other regular still uses Will Smith lyrics as Slang? haha

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    Good luck with “policing” yourself on that one………Mr. Beligerent. ;)

  • Junior Taylor

    What is this? I can’t get jiggy with this sh*t.

  • Junior Taylor

    Yep, you got me. I’m addicted to Big Willy *pause*

  • nbk

    lol

  • Black Mamba

    This is confusing

  • bike

    Wonder what prompted the change

  • nbk

    of all the people to ask that question…

  • nbk

    who were you on the old system?

  • RKJ92

    Damnn dude this is tight!!!

  • AiRsMiTh

    Thanks, SLAM. I think this was a good decision. I also hope it will weed out cowards who comment using anonymity.

  • Iggi Vasquez

    WOW!! Real nice…

  • nbk
  • hyperactive

    like the way new system looks

  • flea

    No more signing in under someone elses handle?

  • Ill Smith

    Niiiiiice

  • http://www.facebook.com/tuotila1 Tuomas Uotila

    “…that so many of you have complained about in recent months”

    More like recent years but this’ll do. Thank you.

  • shutup

    actually I think it was a Friday after next reference.

  • shutup

    and the first argument of the new comment system begins….

  • chingy

    A new commenting system makes me want to comment. Have been reading comments for more than 5 years!

  • http://www.facebook.com/Brill86 Andrew Woods

    Ok now I can get behind this

  • nbk

    maybe it was, but Jiggy came from Will Smith. In terms of pop culture, so that’s what i associated it with.

  • Caboose

    I guess now we get to really see who the top commenters are. Can’t wait to see Shock Exchange average like 10 negative votes a post.

  • Junior Taylor

    Right again. Got it from that black a** comedian.

  • Darksaber

    Trust Slam to launch a new commenting system as i reduced my writing on here. this should get interesting quick.

  • ZOGS

    SWAG SON MY NIGGA IS BAAAAACK DOE

  • ZOGS

    WAIT… NO MORE 1ST COMMENTS….that kinda sucks

  • ZOGS

    wait

  • shutup

    I don’t dispute that, but if I quoted Sam Jackson’s Bible verse from Pulp Fiction, it’s a Pulp Fiction reference , not a Bible reference per say. It’s a matter of context.

  • nbk

    i understand man, i didn’t say it was a reference. i was just giving taylor shit bruh

  • http://twitter.com/AjpDos Allen Powell

    I can’t believe y’all had an argument about this right here. Funny.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    i just like that someone disliked every comment in this weird little discussion. Like they were reading it like “why am i still reading this? ugh, i hate this comment, and this one, and this one, and this one, why am i still reading these?!?!”

  • AT

    UMM I DONT UNDERSTAND BUT OH WELL

  • Redd

    You’re* learn spelling please.

  • Redd
  • Megatron

    ah think i got it

  • Dagger

    The best thing about this: you aren’t forced to log on with a social media account. Thanks for retaining the anonymity of the internet!

  • shutup

    Did it come off as an argument? I apologize, not at all my intention, was just making an observation

  • shutup

    I noticed that as well, so I voted up all of the comments not made by me.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/NVGJJPAZDF7PYA7QPJLJRQWDBE Jordan Carter

    Shut up bitch

  • Eboy

    Interesting

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Ehh do they even keep track of.up and down votes?

  • shutup

    Yeah, think its linked with the whole profile thing, click your name and see you’ve been one busy bee since the commenting system went up, how do you find time to do your job? lol.

  • Redd

    LOL

  • Redd

    oh.

  • Slick Ric

    Bout damn time * Lebron voice*

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Well I do my work stuff first then comment as I do the stuff that takes waiting. Like a phone call or something along those lines. I am productive.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    I think 90% of the vote downs that I get will be from Tarzan…

  • chingy

    How about letting us know who Liked/Unliked our comments?

  • Nick Tha Quick

    Yeah buddy. About time too.

  • Nick Tha Quick

    Nice.

  • Nick Tha Quick

    Nick Tha Quick’s summer predictions:….Slam finally fixes commenting system….” Me, Kob and Nostradamus got a few things in common.

  • niQ1

    Testing…Apparently someone on Disqus already had my name..

  • The Philosopher

    LONG… LIVE… THE KING.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    So, which one of us will man up and sign in to SLAM with our Facebook accounts?

  • Otis

    Excellent.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    if you had anything to do with this, thanks Ben. This new system is really dope.

  • http://twitter.com/niQknacks niQ

    Hey SLAM, I don’t know if this problem is just at my work but here goes. Sometimes when I try to type it says my computer is not compatible for Disqus and that I need Internet Explorer 9. But because its the work computer, I can’t just simply upgrade it. But the strange thing is…sometimes when I come on it’s fine and doesn’t block me and I can type fine like right now. Any ideas?

  • http://slamonline.com/ Ben Osborne

    I’m not the tech wiz but all of us had been pushing the web guys to improve the commenting system for several months. Glad the feedback has been so positive.

  • Darksaber

    Well done, sir. Count me back in as one who will participate more in these discussions.
