[Geeky Guide] New Comment Rules

This is a Tri-Blog entry that will appear on all three of my blogs: The Geeky Guide to Nearly Everything, Beyond Dinobot Island and Moonbase 8.

In line with my own efforts to support further development of the OpenID initiative, I am modifying commenting permissions for both The Geeky Guide to Nearly Everything (hosted on Blogger) and Beyond Dinobot Island (hosted on LiveJournal) to no longer allow anonymous comments.

Instead, comments can only be left by (1) registered users of the respective blogging platforms and (2) OpenID users. Since OpenID is being further supported these days by more and more groups, I think it only makes sense to try and support that initiative in my own small way.

You might already be using OpenID through another site, so it shouldn't be too much of an issue. By January 30, 2008, Yahoo IDs will become recognized by OpenID-supporting sites so this should further expand the possibilities.

If you have your own thoughts and ideas about this change, feel free to leave a comment on this blog or you can get in touch with my directly - you know I always appreciate feedback.

  2. Haha, that's cool. I appreciate your participation, in a way, to ensure this new process works. =D
