As some of you have already noticed, today we launched a new commenting system on Pleated Jeans. Yes, it’s different from the old one, which is obviously going to make a few of you more upset than it probably should. And that’s fine. Please use the new commenting system to let us know how upset you are. But also, please consider using these features while you’re at it.
- Image uploads in the comments. We now allow you to pull images from the post instead of saying “The one with the guy doing the thing” as the set-up for your joke or comment.
- Upvoting/downvoting of comments. Some of the funniest things we read every day are PJ comments and we want to make sure the best rise to the top. We also want to better gauge what people are liking and not liking so we can adjust what we post. We’re going to try to do a monthly post of the best comments too, so help us out.
- Live look at other recent comments on popular posts. We thought it would make it easier for everyone to see what others are viewing and commenting on, so right above the comments (and in the comments themselves) we have a real-time display of what people are writing.
We’re also going to be rolling out what we think are exciting changes in the coming weeks, some boring like site speed and design upgrades, and some cool like open submission lists. We hope you enjoy all of it, and if not, again, there’s a new commenting system waiting for you, so get in there, spew your vitriol and upvote yourself.
