Thanks for your patience while I (poorly-equipped to correct such issues) work on the fact that Disqus suddenly isn't cooperating with everyone. I've embedded a little Google Form survey further down in this post to find out what's going on. You can be my superhero today if you choose to take the survey below.
[I am smiling so big right now--You blogging peeps are so awesome :) I'm looking at the survey results (which get updated live), and I think it's going to be so helpful. If nothing else, it's COOL!) Thanks, so much!]
UPDATE: I think I fixed the problem by "upgrading" to the new Disqus. Once I did that, I was able to change the setting (previously unavailable) for OPENING comments. You should be able to comment now. Just in case, though, I'm leaving the survey open. If you are able to comment, admire the schedule but don't worry about completing it. If you're not, I'd love your feedback. I will close the survey on Monday. THANKS, EVERYBODY!!!]
Here's what I do know:
*It works for some people.
*Others are getting through to Blogger commenting; those appear in my inbox but not on my blog (right?)
*Still others report that my blog says "Comments are closed" on this post.
*I wonder if the problems appear the same when on the main page, vs. the permalink (the page you land on when you click on the title of a post.)
*I just turned the "mobile version" of posting off, as per some random-and-nice guy on a Blogger forum. Maybe that will work?
*Disqus Customer Service (who returned my email right away this morning, btw) said I might need to switch to Disqus 2012 but also gave me some other ideas, so I'll work on that.
AND NOW, for your geeky enjoyment, here's the survey, in case you're interested in helping me fix this problem! [Note: I adjusted the dimensions of the survey, but it's still doesn't fit perfectly in the post.
