I was curious do you guys like the comment section as it is right now or would you like to see some changes? I was never very fond of it, but that may just be me. Don't get me wrong, it's not horrible, but i just don't like it.

It's not bad.

Every comment system is similar. Disqus is really flaky. Having spent years using it on my sites, I finally dumped it due to reliability and stability problems. So I'm no fan of Disqus.

Most comment system are just okay. If there was anything that I would change on CR comment system it would be to remove the "thumbs up/thumbs down" voting system. Groups overtake show comments and automatically down vote certain people or opinions into oblivion. Turns the comment system into "mob rule" which always ends poorly.

The other thing I would do is integrate the episode & News section comment system into the forums and an entire user profile. I would create a vast social experience that included a CR member's contributions to every aspect of CR into one social page that they could share. I would really leverage user activity on this site differently and I would begin with the forums & episode comment system.

Other than that, I think CR comment system functions as advertised.
