Cleaned up blog commenting and notifications on the site! (8229 hits)

Hey folks... I just spent a few hours on the site updating the way blog comments show up.
Now when you post a reply to a blog or news item, the first thing that you'll see is the time you posted the comment, and your photo on the left hand side of the comment rather than the right. Cleans it up nicely.

Also, when comments are posted to an article that you commented on, you'll get a notification via email so you can check it out without having to manually check every so often... Check it out.

Let me know if you would like to see any other enhancements related to this. Don't mind the picture. Just wondering if folks will click if they see a random face haha.

By the way thanks again for this place my brother. It is far and away the best site for discourse for Blacks on the web. The free flow of information and oppinion is matched by none. The format is easy to navigate and the content is universal. It not only addresses the issues that Blacks (all people) are concerned with it gives them the vehicle to be heard. I see that you are experiencing a cross over also. Congrats!

Great upgrade! Thank you!

I think it was a nice idea, but un-necessary none the less to have a email notification for blog comments. I liked it the way it was personally. Just my 2 cents worth.

You can disable this feature in your preferences page, but if if you turned it off, you would not get an email right now for you to even know I responded with this little tidbit! ;)

I would like to see the "all member updates" easier to navigate to - I think if more people saw what is going on thru "all member updates" - there would be blog comments across the board.

Hmmm... excellent suggestion. Where do you think would be a good place to put a link where people would naturally expect it?

" all member updates" should be the default page after your initial ad revenue banner. This navigation will allow members to get in on blog action without searching around. "updates for your friends" would be reversed where you have all member updates now.

the other recommendation is to get these blogs out on the web - lets get these tags submitted to web engines - this will expose this site and blogs in query results.

Crossover is when you get intrested folk from croos the track. Dante got it going on at BH.com. But trust me you are growing. I wish you all the wealth in the WORLD

I added the member activity updates on left column now for the site. We will also add a way for the search engines to come in and travel through the blog links.
