Having trouble posting a comment? You may need to log off and log back in. Because we are using the same database of users (meaning you didn't have to re-register), that's the easiest way to get the new system to "recognize" you.
* * *
By default, newest comments are listed first. Try sorting by oldest comments first. Hopefully, that will help you when you are trying to respond to comments by others.

Check out our enhanced commenting feature. Anyone who has registered at idahostatesman.com can comment on a story. You can sign in or register at the top left of our pages.
Readers can help us watch for offensive comments. If a comment is flagged by multiple people, it will disappear off the site.
Don't bother doing this if you just disagree with an opinion; we'll put the comment back on the site. But offensive comments will disappear off the site faster under this new system with your help.
You will have a "persona" page where you can type in a bio for yourself and upload your own avatar (or picture), if you choose.(Changes can be made under "my profile" once you are logged in.)
You will be able to create your own blog. You can find out how by going to your persona page.
We hope you like these changes. Questions? Feel free to email me.
