Relaxed Comment Requirements

I had been using the default WordPress setting of manually approving comments before they show up on the site. Users that already had an approved comment had their comments automatically approved. The problem with this setting is I don’t get email notification when someone comments for the first time so there is additional delay in addressing comments. I also feel it’s unintuitive for a user to submit a comment and not have it show up immediately. I’ve changed the setting to automatically allow all comments and I’ve also removed the requirement to supply an email. I don’t anticipate any problems considering the scale of the site. Hopefully this makes things easier for those that want to comment. Thank you!

  1. This isn’t the right place for this comment, but there really isn’t a place for it. With Gungho Michael now on reddit posting a few things about himself, I got to thinking as I was browsing your posts, “it would be nice to know a little more about our buddy Setsu.” I thought I’d ask a few questions to get to know you better. **You don’t have to answer if you don’t want to and feel free to delete this comment if you’d rather not share your personal life.**

    -What state do you live in?
    -What’s your profession?
    -Do you have a significant other?
    -What’s your top 5 favorite Anime?
    -Do you have any hobbies other than PAD?


    • Sure, I can answer that much.

      – California
      – Software Engineer
      – PAD is my current lover ;_;
      – Limiting this to only 5 is doing a disservice to so many anime, but off the top of my head I’ll limit it to: Aria, Mushishi, Evangelion, Cardcaptor Sakura, Honey & Clover.
      – I bowl, golf, run, and play Magic the Gathering. Of course, anime and other video games.


    • Sadly it doesn’t appear that WordPress has a good function for facilitating off-topic discussion. If it becomes more of an issue, I’m considering just making an “off-topic” sticky or page and allowing random comments there.


  2. Thanks Setsu! That’s really neat. I figured you were in the California time zone with the times you post. I’m going to have to look up Aria and Cardcaptor Sakura. I haven’t seen them yet.
    What the hey, I’ll answer my own questions too:

    -Civil Engineer
    -Yes! To be married in November!
    -Hunter X Hunter, Just about any Ghibli movie, Cowboy Beebop, Naruto (I know, I know, but I got hooked), Attack on Titan
    -I run, disc golf, listen to podcasts (favorites are Star Talk, Anime Addicts Anonymous, Nerdist, and The Adventure Zone), board game fanatic, and cuddling with my sugarmama.
