Improved Comments

Following Tom’s suggestion, I’ve added the Subscribe to Comments plug-in so you can be e-mailed when someone responds to your comments.  If you have problems with this feature, please add a comment here.

I’ve also added a page to provide a central place listing posts with on-going discussions.  I’m considering adding some posts just for discussion; for example, I could add a new post just for discussing air bearings.

In the not too distant future, I will look at further improving feedback options.  I do not like options that require casual visitors to register, either to comment or with a third party site such as Facebook or LinkedIn.

I’m also not a big forum fan — about the only forum software I liked was the old pre-2000 InfoWord Electric forums.  In general, I think most forum software does not promote good discussions.  On the other hand, I’ve seen mailing lists work very well.

I think wikis are excellent for some types of information, such as structured reference content (the air bearing discussion is a good candidate).  That’s why I added a trac server to this site — but it needs upgrading.

As always, I’m open to suggestions.
