Old School Comments Are Back

You guys were right, and I was wrong: Old school comments are better than my fancy forum-post-as-comment idea, so I decided to swallow my pride and roll things back to the good ol’ days. Enjoy.

If it ain’t broke…

Was worth a try though, , i guess


Well, it kinda was broken, in the sense that this comment system allows—maybe even encourages—people to leave short, inane comments like “rad” or “this sucks.” Not very helpful stuff, and it kinda drags down the overall feel of the site.

But oh well, democracy rules, right? :-)


Comments, Good. Forum, Better (when I have the time and who has that anymore.) Must say, I really like the box for the “Random Cream o Crop” with the “Full Cream” option. Now, If I can just get that stuff into a motionographer widget…..


you want to get your ‘full cream’ into a widget?
have i arrived at the wrong party?


Hooray to the old comments ressurection!
Now behave boys, please.


I think this is a good move. Unfortunately, whenever anyone tries discuss something in-depth via a blog, forum, or regular conversation, they’ll always get a few one words answers – and as you know from teaching, you can’t make people talk. Even if the responses are lacking substance, I’m sure the producer of the piece even likes to see general ‘thumbs up’ or ‘thumbs down’.

I think the biggest benefits here are: seeing the work at the top, responding to other responses (the visual nesting is good), seeing the number of responses before entering, and the option to comment to the Quickies (which I think is a huge plus).

Keep the the great work man, and thanks again for hosting this incredible site.



wo havn’t done that in a while ! love the new motionographer :D


Wait.. what? The Cream top 20 is kindof random.. when you have a German rep company in there, Sehsucht.. and companies like Yu+co.
We all know who the real Cream is..Psyop, MTheory, Logan, Stardust, BNS. in that order possibly..


Oh yeah baby :)

BTW this would’be been good to discess in the forum.

Maybe I should’ve posted this to the forum…. Oh well




All is well in the cosmos.
Thank you.

I find it a little disturbing to read comments with all the ‘quickies’ on the side. I think in when reading a post (as apposed to the main page) and in the comments section you should have minimal graphics around the sides.

Besides for that, I LOVE the new Motionographer site. Good job!


im commenting on commenting! very strange


I much prefer the older site. the navigation was straight forward and easy to get around


thank god, I was really hoping to avoid anything that had to do with vanilla forum




Yey!!!! for OldSchool comments!!!


Yeah, Old Coke tastes best!


Thanks for the old school comments.
And the new site style it´s great!!!
