Hello guys. Thank you so much for your patience in sticking with the issues the site has been having, particularly those who are persistent in attempting to share their comments/tips with us despite the horrendous comment system.

Every attempt at fixing it hasn’t worked so far and unfortunately due to uni getting super busy, I haven’t had much time to fix them properly.

The interaction between our readers is very important to us. A lot of the time, I get much more from the comment I’m reading from you guys than the post and sources itself.

We stuck with the default wordpress system as it worked best for us regarding: Spam control, tip messages, folks on mobile browsers having an easier time with wordpress comments (vs disqus) filtering inappropriate words. But it might be time to discuss the use of disqus again.

If your comments aren’t appearing they aren’t because of censorship. They are more likely due to:

  • WordPress error
  • Use of profanity (you can bypass them by using “***”)
  • More than 4 links
  • Spam phrases
  • overzealous spam

Feel free to test the comment box below. If that still doesn’t work, you can get in touch to just so I know it’s still not working.

Apologies for the inconvenience. It’s hard enough having the situation Nokia’s going through without the site itself being a pain to use. And because of that, thank you so much for those that persisted with us.
