New This is copied and pasted from my main site (DistantWeb.net), and I am re-posting here simply because it's relevant here as well (Original Post Here):

So for now I will not go into too much detail, but I am finally done dealing with and relying on Facebook. I do not agree with their shady practices with which they handle peoples personal data, and I am finally no longer condoning their practices by using their services (over all).

For the longest time I relied on their plugins for mostly comments, since it was such an easy code to use, which made it very convenient. But no longer. So because of that, I had to actually work on something that's been on my mind for a while.

Basically, I ripped out the old 'Blog Comments' functionality, and converted that to a more general "Site Comments" set of functions. Honestly, it's pretty poorly implemented, but it works, and at least seems to work well, so that's all that really matters to me. This entire site is still nothing more than a 'beta' version anyway; everything needs to be reworked and re-coded from the ground up at some point anyway.

So as of this post, there are now comment features on Blogs, Polls and Member Profiles (DJ Profiles on Scrub Radio have been done as well, with Band Pages to come at some point). There is still work to be done here, but for now, it's good enough for me.

To get comments on your Member Profile page, simply update your account (My Account -> Update Profile). There will be a Yes/No selection drop down asking if you want comments on your Profile Page. The Facebook stuff is still there in most (if not all) areas in terms of asking if you want to use them, but the comment boxes themselves for Facebook have been disabled at a base level. Expect that all to get ripped out eventually.

If you have any questions, suggestions or feedback, please feel free to let me know.

Thank you!
This site is a work in progress. Please bare with me and if you have any suggestions, post them Here
