It’s a new year and we have a new comments system, after having been hard-Jewed by disqus, who claims that we feel the emotion of hatred.
You may have seen it. You may even have started using it. Several hundreds have signed up, as we rebuild our community in this new promised land.
The new comments system is Discourse, which is the only open-source system available with the full functionality of a discussion board. Indeed, it has more functionality than disqus.
And it is installed on our servers so we cannot be banned.
Basically – or actually – this is forum software which works as a comments section.
Part of the deal, which will be the hardest part to get used to, perhaps, is that you have to click through to the comments, which are on their own page rather than below the article. This may be annoying at first, but it is something you will quickly get used to.
There are positives to this as well, from a propaganda standpoint. We here at the Daily Stormer have a pretty open free speech policy, because I believe in free speech. However, this creates an issue for new readers of the site, who may be offended and/or confused by the comments section, which often comes across as an insider-type community. With the comments on a separate page, these casual readers are not likely to click through to the comments section when initially reading the site, thus being able to slowly get a feel for what we’re about before joining the community.
Some top comments will appear at the bottom of the article – those with the most likes. So like what you like.
Right now, to access the comments section you click this:
Which should appear at the bottom of all new articles. We’ll probably do something to make that a bit more visible as we’re working out the bugs. And we are working out bugs.
Getting Your Account Rolling
You can create an account with the site, or you can log in using Twitter, Facebook, etc.
Should be very easy to get posting.
Note: You may have an issue with AOL mail. If you use that and have an issue, try a different email address.
Your account will need manual approval before you can freely post after you register, which is sadly something we have to do here to keep the comments from being overrun by Jews, faggots and Jewish faggots.
This will take some getting used to for all of us, myself included, but ultimately I think it’s going to be a much better platform for our community than disqus, and we will have the security of not getting Jewed.
The commenting system also functions as a discussion forum, which should expand the whole community vibe.
The old comments will be back soon enough. We haven’t gotten to that yet, but we still have the database.
You can read the Discourse FAQ to find out more about the way it works and all the things you can do with it, if you want to get into all that. I actually don’t myself know all of the functionality, but know that it meets my requirements, which are image uploading, upvoting and nestled reply threads.
After settling in, we should all feel very comfortable.
Hail to weev for setting this all up. Send him a shekel or three.
