Okay, the last major bit is in place, that being the new Comment engine from JS-Kit.com. I have to admit that after four years of wrestling with HaloScan, plugging in the new JS-Kit code was so easy I thought I'd done it wrong at first and had to go back and check it again. Many thanks to Chris Saad, JS-Kit's VP of Product Strategy and Community, for patiently answering my questions and steering me down this path.
JS-Kit commenting is remarkably feature-rich, and I expect I'll be flipping all sorts of bits off and on in the next few weeks as I get to know it better, so expect the look and feel of the Comments to change for a while before things (or more honestly, I) finally settle down. I also stand corrected on another point. Importing existing blogspot comments was a snap, so all the brilliant commentary on the "Rules" post remains. (Except for a few of my own comments, which I deleted to test the comment moderation functions.)
On the subject of things changing, I expect I'll continue to play with the content in the sidebars for a while, so don't be alarmed if things move around. I can't help but notice there's a lot of blank space in the right column, though. Shall we establish a blogroll, or is the Followers widget sufficient?
