Introduction of CAPTCHAs for Commenting on Blogs

Due to the astronomical amounts of comment spam that we were receiving on our blogs, we decided to implement a CAPTCHA system. We are sorry for the mild inconvenience, but it was a necessary evil. Thanks for your understanding.

On a side-note, did you know that CAPTCHA is an acronym that stands for “Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart”?

Comment Subscription Feature

If you recently commented on any CosmoBC blog, then you probably have seen the new comment subscription feature. It basically allows you to subscribe to receive email notifications each time someone has posted a reply to your comment.

If you do not wish to subscribe, simply uncheck the box before posting your comment. Also if you already subscribed and changed your mind you can click on the “manage subscriptions” link below the comment box at the end of every post and you will be sent a link to your account. From there you can manage all you subscriptions and decide which ones you want to keep and which you would prefer to remove.

Please keep in mind that this feature is in the development stage, so if you encounter any bugs, please report them to us through our contact form.

Threaded comments and more

We have recently added a few new features on our blogs.

One of them is threaded comments which enables you to reply to individual comments, not only comment on the blog post. You can also tweet your comment (send to Twitter).

Even more: if you enter the URL of your blog in the “website” field, you can choose to display a link to your latest blog post after your comment.
