Hi, Burgers!

Are you ready for some welcome changes to the Cheezburger commenting platform?

No, you aren’t having déjà vu. Many of you may remember in April when we announced that our old commenting platform was being dissolved.  We have since implemented a new, improved system that has gotten a lot of positive feedback from the community.

BUT there is always room for improvement! In order to continue building a strong relationship with our loyal Cheezburger community, we will be rolling out several new and positive additions to commenting starting now.

 

Here’s what you can expect: 

 

1. Featured Comments

Cheezburger editors will now have the ability to feature interesting or useful community comments in a special space at the top of a comment thread. This will allow our most dedicated Burgers to rise to the top and increase the overall quality of comments.

The featured comment will also be indicated with this special tag in the original place on the thread.

2. Image/GIF Uploading  

Images and GIFs will now be fully functional on comment threads. So when something makes you rage you can be like:

Jack-Nicholson

Just make sure that your comments follows our Community Standards. Speaking of those, if you see a comment you think is inappropriate, flag it and a moderator will take a look at it.

 

3. Staff Tags

You will now be able to see when a Cheezburger staff member comments on a post or responds to a user comment. A special moniker next to their username will indicate they are on staff.

We are all super excited for the updates to roll out. If you have any questions or ideas for how we can continue to improve these features, let us know below! Until then—happy commenting!
