How to Post a Comment on the Blog
We've just concluded another successful team treasury blitz and everyone had a ton of fun, but the question was often heard, "How do I post a comment on the blog?" So, I thought I'd post a little tutorial that we can all refer to whenever we have trouble in the future.
Scroll down to the bottom of the post that you want to comment on. Here you will find some text in blue, towards the end it will say "comments". In the picture below you will see that there are presently "0 comments" on this particular post. Make sure this is at the end of the particular post you want to comment on, not the entire page. There are often several posts displayed on one page.
Click the text that says "comments".
This will bring up a window where you can write your comment. Write what you intended to say, and then scroll down to the bottom of this page. You need to choose an identity to post. If you have a gmail account, it will automatically prompt you with it. Select the identity you want to post with, and click the orange "Publish your comment" button. You may be prompted to enter the text in the security box. I am not, as I am an author on the blog, so I cannot provide a screenshot of this step. I can say, though, that this step can take several tries. It's not always easy to read that crazy text!
Once you've satisfied the blog that you're not a robot by inputting the proper alphanumeric text in the security box, you should get a confirmation that your comment was posted correctly, and is awaiting publication.
Our blog is set up as a moderated one in order to avoid spammers and other unwelcome postings. Just because your comment does not appear immediately does not mean that it did not go through, or it won't appear eventually. It simply means that it's awaiting one of blog leaders to come in and OK it. Unless you are a blog author, your comment will need to be moderated by hand in order to appear on the blog. This usually doesn't take long. Once that happens, it will look like this:
