Woohoo! GL's got a new comment system--and here's how it works


Hey there, #GLgirls! Noticed something...different...about girlslife.com lately? Well, we've been doing a li'l tweaking to make your favorite site bigger and better. Step one? A new comment system run by Disqus. We're still working out the kinks, so bear with us, but here's how it works. Got a Q we didn't cover here? Leave a comment (you can do it!) or shoot an email to brittany@girlslife.com.

 

Um, hold up a sec! What’s with the new comment layout?

No need to freak—you can still leave comments on girlslife.com, just like always. We’re just tweaking things to make life a li’l bit easier. With our new comment system, your comments (as long as they are appropriate) will be visible immediately. Awesome, right?

 

How do I comment? It looks like I have to register for a new account…

To comment, you first need to log in to girlslife.com (using the pink GL button and your girlslife.com username and password) or Disqus. To log into Disqus, you can register for a new Disqus account or sign in through a social media account you already have, like Facebook, Twitter or Google+.

 

So, does that mean I need two accounts to use girlslife.com?

Nope. If you're already a girlslife.com registered user, all you need to do is be logged in through that account. And if you're not, well, what are you waiting for? Click here to register!

 

What’s Disqus? Is it safe?

Totally. Disqus is a commenting platform that tons of websites are using these days to help monitor comments. If you decide to register for a commenting account through them, they will not sell or use your information. All a Disqus account does it make it easier for you to leave comments on sites that use Disqus—just like GL.

 

What about the mods? Can I still post a mod question?

Our mods now have their very own club! They'll be checking in Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to answer all of your questions. CLICK HERE to take a peek. Please post your Qs for them there rather than on individual posts.

 

My comments aren't posting right away. What's going on?

Sometimes, Disqus flags certain things in comments. As long as you follow the rules (no personal info, no links to outside sites, no curse words or hate speech), your comment should go through immediately. But if it doesn't, we'll be checking in and approving the ones that get flagged for no reason--just give us a li'l time. GL does reserve the right to edit and/or delete unsuitable comments.
