Leaving comments on an Ephem
A visitor to this blog has suggested that it’s not terribly easy to leave a comment on an entry in it: "You can access the site, but the options on leaving a response are
rather limited (in that they could discourage potential readers)." Actually, it’s not that difficult. At the end of each entry there’s a link that says "0 comments", or "1 comment", or whatever. If you click on that, there’s an invitation to post (i.e. write) a comment: click on that, and there’s a space for you to write your comment. Click first on the button next to "Anonymous" (but it’s nice if you feel able to say who you are, with an e-mail address ideally, at the beginning or end of your comment). If you get a screen asking for your username and password, just click on "Or post anonymously" underneath, and you’ll get the space for your comment. When you have finished, click "Publish your comment". That’s all there is to it. Let’s have a discussion!
PS (September 2005): Since this was written, Ephems has been extensively re-modelled, and it’s now even easier to make a comment. Just fill in the brief form under each entry (at the end of any comments already there), and write your comment. It asks for your e-mail address so that it knows you’re for real, but the e-mail address won’t be shown on the comment when it appears. The comments are often even more interesting than the original entry!
