Why am I not posting comments?



Because I didn't know I was getting any. Which was pretty unlikely, but not impossible, since there've been so few queries and openings to comment on. I figured the blog was dying a slow death.

I went into my blogger page and clicked on comments and then clicked on needs moderation, and there are about 60 comments waiting. I never had to do this before; but I don't see anywhere where I've changed the settings. Comments used to come directly to me for moderation, rather than me having to go to them. Anyone know what I need to change to get back to that?

For now, I'll go through these comments that need moderation tomorrow morning, and any comment you made from May 20 on should at last appear. If your query appeared since May 20, you should soon have comments other than my own.

Update

Half the comments that needed moderation were fake plots for the Guess the Plot feature. So now  all the query critiques have Guess the Plot, and you owe it to your fellow minions to return to Face-Lifts 1376 - 1379 and try to guess the plots.

The rest of the comments were advice to the authors or attempts to tell me I wasn't posting the comments. The former are now posted.

This doesn't explain why I'm no longer getting emails that say "khazarkhum has left a new comment on your post "New Beginning 1078": " allowing me to click publish or delete.

Under Settings/comments I find:




Is "full page" wrong? The other options are embedded, popup window and hide.

I'm just guessing, but maybe change the email address where it sends the comment notifications, and then change it back after? From the screenshot it looks like it sends some kind of verification to that email address, and maybe the verification setting was lost or expired?

So glad to see the comments are back. Thank you, EE, for soldiering on even when you couldn't tell that we were all still here!

Let's see if this gets through now.

Testing, 1 2 3

OK, I deleted my email and then put it back as JRMosher suggested, and was able to comment. Now I need someone who isn't me to succeed.

You need another comment? Oh goodie whoopee ding-dong and ho-ho's {sugar, more sugar}
So this is a test, merely a test, nothing but a test...
Did it work?

Testing testing, minion here.

khazarkhum said...

Hi there--I'm not you. Will I succeed?

Paul Penna said...

Comment test, as requested. It was a dark and stormy night...

Evil Editor said...

Unfortunately, these test comments I posted weren't the result of emails to me, but of my going to the comments needing moderation page. Thanks for trying. Perhaps there's a blogger forum with the answer.

Evil Editor said...

There was a forum article. Apparently sometime in May Blogger adopted a new policy requiring bloggers to opt in to receiving email notifications of comments, even though they provided an email address for those notifications. I think I've now opted in. I'll know as soon as someone comments.

davefragments said...

This is test #2 and while it may be redundant it comes to you from not so far away with wishes ...
This is another test of that opt in strategy thingie..

Testing testing, phase two.

ユイdirnt said...

Well, here's another test comment.

Anonymous said...

If this had been a real emergency, you would be given instruction. As is, it is only a test.

khazarkhum said...

Well? Did it work?

Evil Editor said...

It didn't work. They sent me an email , I subscribed to email comments, and nothing. Unless it takes a few days to start working, there's still a problem.

Evil Editor said...

Wait after I published those comments I suddenly got emails with them. Maybe it just started working. Or maybe they're really screwed up.

Evil Editor said...

I've turned off comment modification. Possibly comments will start appearing, along with spam.

davefragments said...

Maybe the spammers died and aren't posting anymore - - -
sigh!
What did Ben Franklin about "He who lives on hope?"

Anonymous said...

Well, here's test number 3 if you like.

It works!

khazarkhum said...

davefragments, I think the beer-loving Franklin meant to say 'he who lives on hops'. Proof he was a writer.
