A Short Note Regarding Commenting

According to the engineering level, comment accounts on both Boing Boing and Boing Boing Gadgets should work in the unified manner which you may rightfully have expected in the first place: One account, one login, posting access on both sites.

    Pork, it didn’t happen to everyone. Apparently it was just the first few accounts that were like that before we caught the setting error, but now all the accounts are merged.

    Umm, i have the problem, and I registered yesterday.

    mdhatter (not anonymous, really)

  3. Skwid says:

    Like Pork Musket, I never had the problem, but I’m glad to know it’s fixed. I wonder if it’s because I first registered over here, and most people probably did it the other way around?

  4. Rodney says:

    This is good. I’m getting *really* tired of having to make new accounts. Come, OpenID, come.

  5. Anonymous says:

    I made my account today and it doesn’t work on both

    We do not have a 100% Non-Wonkiness SLA! (Thanks for coming back to report your findings.)

    So far I’d posted anonymously out of convenience, but the above post convinced me to finally sign up. Which obviously worked out fine here, but I just noticed that over on boingboing.net, I get “You do not have permission to comment on this blog. (sign out)” o_O

  8. nex says:

    P.S. I did sign out over there, log back in, and now it’s working on both sites. So I guess there’s a trace amount of wonkyness left somewhere, but nothing high priority.

    And lo Ken, who had seen that which was fucked, set his rod upon it, and yea it was unfucked. – Larywal 13:36

    It would appear so. :)

    Very strange – I never had to make two accounts, I created this one and have been posting comments on sites with it.
