We work hard to write good posts, but some of the best stuff happens in the unsupervised playground filled with our commenters. We've said it before and we'll say it again: Reader comments make us laugh, make us cry, make us think, and yes, even drive us to drink. Now we've got a new feature so you can
stalk follow your fave commenters.
First, you've gotta be logged in. If you don't already have a user ID, click "new user" at the top of the page. When you're logged in and you see a comment you like, click the "follow commenter" button to the right (it looks like a lil' plus sign.) Once you're following someone, links to their latest comments will appear on the front page of the site mixed in between the regular posts. This way you can scan the page and find out what your friends are talking about at the same time. (See above for example.)
Want to see who you're following — and who's following you? Just go to your profile page, by clicking the "welcome!" link at the top of the site. You can un-friend someone by clicking the x button next to his or her commenter name. If you want to see all of a particular person's comments in one place, click on his or her commenter name — you can even send that person a personal message on their profile page.
So welcome to the new world of Jezebel comments. Let us know what you think, and if you have any problems using the new feature, leave word below or write to firstname.lastname@example.org (be sure to note your OS and browser type).
