Old Comments Are Back

When we first introduced Facebook Comments, we had a clear vision of how it will benefit the Triond community, in terms of traffic and spam-fighting.

However, many of you insisted that the old commenting system was better for you, and so we heard you. The old commenting system is back.

Enjoy commenting, and Happy Publishing!

  1. We, as a collective whole, thank you so much for returning to the old system. I am happy to know that the Triond staff is searching for ways to increase traffic and curb spam. I am confident that with the community, Triond can and will continue to grow and pull up in the ranks.
    My plea to triond, please, ask us for ideas to improve the site, a blog such as this would surely get our voices heard. The help center idea area does not seem to be “in the know” and most ideas there are merely passed over. If triond, just once, allowed us to post all of our ideas in one spot, perhaps the staff would know what the most frequent and most involved, users would like to see and ways to improve the site.
    Again, thank you Triond for returning to the old commenting system. It is one of the ties that binds, motivates and inspires us writers.

    1. I just hope that I can write (and reaturn!) comments again as I had problems with a glitch for weeks before the Fcebook comments were started… not that I want them back… *lol*

    2. Yes, another urgent thing to improve is communcation with writers. I hear many complaints in the community about it. One writer for example cannot publish any new contetnt and does not know why…

  2. You should’ve let a mix of both. While some people prefer to comment with their Triond IDs, we would’ve gotten comments from strangers to the site through their facebook ID. That would’ve added some much needed connections from a fast growing social network.

    I don’t know how SEO works these days.. I can’t get to figure out how to get views without writing useless content. It has become very hard to get views to Triond articles than to my blogger blogs. Triond lost its advantage of being a common platform that would be better than its individual parts. Not that Bukisa is doing any better. Both are shattered. Something is going with these web 2.0 sites.

  3. thanks but as wabunt has said would have been nice if you maintained both options. Secondly, you urgently need to improve your communication with the writers. There’s a lot of issues here that desperately need looking into.
    And your falling page rank is something that is really bothering us all.
    We love to write for you…but there are so many glitches happening(and you just don’t seem to care or want to improve!!!).

  4. Too many risks associated with FACEBOOK, -the target of many phishing/ID-thefts. Best to not integrate any social-sharing with that site. Use it as a stand-alone, if even that.

  5. Hi, do you track your most popular subjects? What are they? I’m looking for writing ideas. Thanks.

  6. There were too many issues with the Facebook comments, such as page download time, inability to post if you didn’t have Facebook, etc. I’m glad you’re back to the regular Triond Comments! Thank you!

  7. Thank you Triond for bringing back the old comment system. While I know the idea of using Facebook seemed like a great alternative, you have made many writers happy in bringing back the commenting system. I hope that there are a few other changes coming around soon that you guys will make(I do like the idea described earlier of a blog that we may post suggestions on) that may boost traffic, and perhaps the site ratings.

    If you want any suggestions at all, I would say you should do it like this: Ask for a few suggestions from the writers, and then pick the best 3-5 suggestions given(if there are only 1-2, then just pick those), and have the writers vote on which would be the best option to go with. That way, the future of this site would be entirely in the hands of the writers, like it always has been. The writers would get what they want, and you guys would get what you want, which is an increase in views(meaning an increase in revenue, as well). Either way, thank you for listening to the writers on the commenting system, and I hope that to see more changes coming up!

  8. Thank You, Triond for restoring the old way of commenting on articles. This is an improvement in the right direction as witnessed in the praise of the writers in this community.

    Now, is a good time to fix the audio play problem with Loudio. A site feature that isn’t working properly will repel visitors and cripple the site’s reputation. Visitors will not return if the site isn’t working as it should.

    Thank you for listening.

    Sincerely,

    Nelson Doyle

  9. Facebook comments was probably your best idea in a while. These people have no idea what there talking about, yet you listen to the complainers and change/remove another good feature.

    If you have a big social network, Facebook comments are to your advantage… Most of these people don’t have enough articles to be making anything and are really just noobs, who have no idea about advertising and SEO, never mind the idea of not getting hundreds of spam messages using the old comment system.

    Almost everyone, I know has Facebook. Having Facebook comments opened up the door for many people (millions) to potentially comment on our content. With there real Identity, easily. Which could have worked to our advantage in building a network on Facebook and would have got rid of the spammers…

    If you didn’t like Facebook comments, you could have just uncheck the little box, so it didn’t post them on your account and let the rest of us, who know what we are doing take advantage of it…

    But no lets complain about something, you don’t understand nor know how to use, until it’s utterly removed and then give thanks, like your helping the Triond community, when in reality, you’ve only hurt it.

    Your all ignorant noobs with no idea…

    1. A little harsh to say the least – I have Facebook and still far prefer the Triond comments system, and didn’t want my real name and photo attached to any comments I made on a site. Perhaps having both systems would have worked better, but people can already share your articles on Facebook.

    2. Tony, sweetheart, get over yourself and during the process learn English.

      “Your all ignorant noobs with no idea…” contains two mistakes and portrays an ignoramus at work…

      1. AndAnotherThing,

        You are correct that Tony used the wrong “Your”.

        However, according to Internetslang.com a “noob” is a “New, inexperienced person”. See: http://www.internetslang.com/NOOB.asp

        Tony was correctly using that word, although in a rather rude way.

        But then again, calling someone a noob is rude in general. It is just that kind of slang word.

      2. I stand corrected on Tony’s noob (so to speak) but I hope the idea is unpleasant for him.

      3. It’s interesting that Tony has not returned to this discussion, yet. It’s like, come in; drop a bomb, then leave. Personally, I can’t take that kind of commenter very seriously.

        Oh, and by the way, AndAnotherThing, I may have told you this before, but I really like your chosen screen name. Every time I read it, I like to say it as if I were actually starting a sentence that way. Fun name.

  10. It is probably for the best. But using both could still be worth considering. Those who don’t like Facebook, could just not use it, while those who see value in the Facebook option could use that.

    By the way we’ve go those 500 – Internal Server Error back again, right now.

  11. Personally I am very happy about the change as I wasn’t keen on leaving links to my FB profile all over the place so this is a major plus to me.

    On a completely unrelated note; has Nathan gone on holiday or something because nothing’s being answered on GetSatisfaction…

  12. Thank heavens there’s stil intelligent life out there at Triond. It’s so nice to know that there are humans willing to listen to the usually silent majority. I’d almost given up hope with Triond but I was loath to move as it’s one of the easiest sites on which to publish, I’ve made a lot of friends here over the years and, on the whole, it’s been a wonderful experience for me.

    I think maybe now is the time to ensure that the writing that is published is relatively good grammatically and spelling-wise. None of us is perfect but I’m finding more and more the quality of English here is NOT good. Maybe this could be another reason why we’re not getting the ratings we should be?

    I’m finding an increasing number of people who become my fans but I won’t actually befriend them as their work is almost incomprehensible; added to which these people send “friendly messages” to me direct asking me to look at their work if they look at mine. As far as I’m concerned, the majority of writers are not here for the money (although, of course, it’s always nice to be appreciated and receive recompense for our contributions!), but rather we’re here because we have a love for writing and sharing with likeminded people.

    By the way, I instantly refuse to read anything where the supposed published “article writer” states that he or she is an “artical writter”. If you can’t spell the two main ingredients for the recipe then I’d suggest you explore another artistic talent!!

    I very much look forward to finding out about future plans for Triond. Now that Facebook comments are no more, I’m definitely hanging around 😀

      1. I went and looked at the getsatisfaction link you provided, and it looks like Nathan has deleted and banned a great many of those with whom you have voiced concerns. That is a good thing.

  13. There is a serious problem on the security front. Anybody can easily steal my account if I just forget to log out from a computer. Anyone else who accesses triond.com and notices that it is already logged in by somebody else, can then go to “Account” and everything can be edited to new ID (username, email id password and so on). The original user will never be able to recover his/her ID again. Its a gone case. It is such a sham to see that this site despite surviving for so many years doesn’t have a proper security in place.

    Triond should ask for credentials everytime we click on “Account” so that if we don’t log out from a computer or give the computer to someone else for a short time, we are at risk of losing our account. It already happened with me.

    For ex, though Yahoo! allows us to have our email logged in for two weeks, it will ask for credentials everytime we try to change account details like username, password, mobile number, secret question etc.

    Triond must implement this security system in place. Else I can’t refer innocent people. I myself had lost confidence in this site. All the hard work would be gone forever, if I do such mistake only one time.

  14. Yes, we;’re glad to have the old commenting system back, but still, nobody has worked on my plea to make me able to publish articles again!

  15. It would be so helpful if we could edit comments at the foot of our articles. This way, if someone posted spam or a link, we could immediately delete the comment, thus helping Triond to rise in PR by eliminating outbound links pointing to affiliate sites.

    1. You can delete spam comments. Simply go to “content”, then click on “comments,” and click X located on the right, which means delete to remove them. Sometimes you have to do it twice, to make sure you did not click on delete by mistake.

  16. Everytime I try to comment on someone’s work, I get the message at the bottom of the comment box that commenting has been disabled for me. I’m not allowed to comment anymore, or what is the problem. I would appreciate an answer by e-mail as soon as possible please. Thanks hfj.

  17. Today I noticed the most serious Triond glitch ever. I checked my Google Adsense report for last month and noticed that I got 20,322 views from Triond. The problem is Triond stats showed only about 7 100 where is the other 13,222? Can someone from Triond look into it please?

  18. I must add that I have never seen anything like that on Triond before. The page views displayed in my adsense reports always matched those of Triond. I will not publish anything new until this is resolved.

  19. The system seems to be less stuck right now( though the numbers on Google adsense are still different), for a while it was even hard to login, so perhaps Triond has just a bit of hard time when handling higher traffic. I will continue publishing because reaching wide audience is my main goal here, though I think it would greatly benefit Triond’s reputation in online writing community if the technical team looked into these problems or at least explained them, so that writers would not feel that they are being taken advantage of by Triond in any way…

  20. It is interesting that notification but because Triond says that publications are identical from what I’ve known two distinct brains minds think alike can not even do the writing ism only talking about the same thing but it deepens one more than the other, do not see why should reject if both want the same content but with a different explanation and so people take note to learn more than one item or a teaching.

    I posted on other websites and I reject it why? simply are completely different, seeing this as I did in my other websites and publications are seen more frequently, and to see so much rejection on my posts that I think the way to make my own web blogs and then there I can do my I have written books have been sold not only satisfatoriamente and also won in adsense and other media such as clickbank and paypal. thanks for your attention.

    Successes!.
