  1. I see it’s Disqus over there now. I am signed up for it so will start reading CT again.

    Is it working? That is, is it making a few quid for you Tim?

  2. Tim, it’s a nice idea, but bulletin board style forums are pretty much dead these days. Apart from the odd niche-audience holdover from Web 1.0 they’re digital ghost towns – like chatrooms. Remember chatrooms? Imagine an ASCII tumbleweed, lazily rolling through a dusty, sunbaked road with more weeds than tarmacadam.

    ….@…..

    If I may make a suggestion, social media outreach will add more clicks (if that’s what you’re going for), while people still like the Guido style of quasi-anonymous comments under the article (again, if that’s what you want, I don’t presume to know).

    Sorry, everyone’s a critic.

  3. I don’t think bulletin boards are dead, though their glory days may be over. Specialist boards like PPRuNe and ArRSe are still doing well, and one for owners of my specific electric car has proved very useful for me. Moderating them is a lot of hard work.

    Open comment without reg?

    Maybe, but so much javascript, trackers and third-party sites must be enabled to even See the forum means it’s a big NO.

    Peeps derogatory about Tim W’s Forbes articles polluted – that was a complaint, not an emulate & dig-deeper request.

    Stop digging, admit mistakes and fix CT.

    CT is Tim W’s May-Brexit & Public-sector calamity – ignore & press ahead.
