    We've got a few new comments on the main site. Let me know what you think.

    Comments are threaded (so you can see who is replying to who), get notifications of replies by email, send replies by email, get a commenter profile and get reputation points. That means, if you leave a very good comment, it could earn you reputation points, and you can subscribe to direct replies and you’ll be emailed whenever someone responds.

    You can log in using your Facebook or Twitter account which is cool. You can also use that feature to share your comment on Facebook.

    I can now block people who aren’t nice to make this place even friendlier if we need to.

    On the downside, pages take a bit longer to load but I’ve done a bit of work so hopefully you won’t notice it (or you wouldn’t have if I hadn’t just mentioned it). Also the Facebook thing sometimes causes an error message to happen with Internet Explorer. If you’re suffering these messages, please let me know.

    Finally, you can use this http://www.nintendo3ds.org.uk/recent-comments/ to catch up with what people have been saying, as well as a little bit on the sidebar which shows you the 5 most recent comments.

    All the new commenting features look great! I noticed that trackbacks started showing up again, though; they look kinda ugly. I'm also no longer able to moderate comments - it tells me that I don't own the blog; seems my permissions are disappearing everywhere now. :confused:

    Also, it seems it supports WordPress.com accounts, too; it automatically logged me into mine. :p

    The Facebook buttons have been a real pain for me but once you get logged in it works ok. If people start sharing things on Facebook I'll keep them there, if not, I'll take them out.

    Before comments were automatically shown if you'd had comments approved before. Now they are automatically shown if other users have given you thumbs ups.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I've got rid of the trackbacks and I've given you moderator permissions on comments.

    I don't O.K. messages. . . . (Yes, I take every opportunity to make that joke. >_<)

    I like the look of the comment system, Adam!

    P.S. Adam, in your reason for editing, it says, "Er, why isn't that quote working. Can someone contact the admin to get this fixed?" Aren't you the admin? :confused: But the reason why it's not working is that at the end of the quote, it should be "[noparse][/QUOTE][/noparse]", not "[noparse]

    No way! I would be editing every single post that doesn't have punctuation, or ones that have misspelled words! Plus, you were the person who created this site; speaking of which, when did you make it?

    That's not the point of editing posts.

    Adam created this site on March 23, the day the 3DS was announced. Here's the very first post on it. Historic stuff.

    Exactly why I shouldn't be a mod/admin! XD Nice link, albeit one that has few comments. It doesn't seem like it was only that short a time ago; it seems like it's been a year or two! o_O

    Then we're going to write the best independent 3DS game reviews in the industry, that's what.

    And someday, when the 3DS is old and we're looking at its successor (expect that to happen in 5-8 years), you can be sure we'll switch gears to that.
