Hello, there! I’m Christopher, which you should have known if you saw my cute little green logo. So, let me not distract you from the following post. I hope you like it! I’d love to hear your thoughts after you’re done reading it! Enjoy!
I recently got 150 followers on Disqus! Whee! How exciting is that? I don’t check that stat too often (it was more important to me when I had a few followers during my first year with Disqus), but it kinda is cool to have that many followers! So, what’s my plan for a celebration?
Well, some might know of a “Word document” that I talk about at times. What is that? Well, you’re in luck! Whee!
Okay, so what is this?
Well, first I was planning on telling a long story about how I found Disqus and such, but that might bore you all out. So I’ll just stick with the [Microsoft] Word document.
So, if you do or don’t know, I get at least one hour on the internet a day. That is a nice amount of time, but if you have a ton of stuff to do, it’s not that much. Ha, ha.
But I don’t wanna sound unthankful. I really am. Using the net is a privilege and I’m grateful I can use it.
Anyways, I created a creative system that I save the Disqus pages via Firefox and bring them to a computer not connected to the net (I have more time there) and copy links of comments I need to reply to and type the replies underneath the link. I thought it was clever. It was.
The problem was when I copied them into the reply box, it copied a little weird. Turns out it was the formatting and a Disqus employee, Qarly, helped me copy without the formatting. And I was able to speed up my copy-and-paste time!
But I didn’t copy-and-paste oh so much as I probably should have. In time, there were replies like four months old. Crazy, huh?
Then I found a few things that could help me speed up my game. Like in the comment permalink, part of the URL is #comment-(#######). You can change it to #reply-(#######) and it will open up the reply box as well! TIME SAVER!!!
And then I also organized the links by post to help me speed up time when jumping from comment to comment. Like the thread on the Dropbox post is extremely long and it takes a long time for it to open Disqus. By grouping the replies of the Dropbox post together, it will save me extra time.
Also, one other thing that I did actually pretty early on was that some replies were lines long. I made the font size smaller for a smaller document (it was over 100 pages, bruh) and easier copying.
After prioritizing the replies on the net, I finally got the document emptied! But did I learn my lesson? No, well, not really. I still use my document today, but I don’t delay my replies that much anymore and such. Sure, I haven’t been as active today because I had to prioritize, but I do my best not to let the replies not be a month old and such.
I know I reference my Word document a ton and many have no idea what I talk about. Well, now you know.
And I don’t advise anyone to do the Word document thingy. Besides, Disqus has made it easier to reply to others, whether it be the embedded thread, via email, the notifications page, or the mod panel.
Anyways, this is my celebration of 150 followers and all. I hope you enjoyed this story! If you want more Disqus stories, let me know! God bless!
Hello again! I’m so happy you finished reading my post, and, boy, do I hope you liked it!
