As promised, I spent this weekend adding a commenting function to PlaidHatGames.com. You are now welcome to add a comment to news stories. There are still some bugs to work out (I've already noticed it throws an error trying to redirect the page when you try to edit a previously posted comment) but it works enough for tonight.

This is especially exciting for those of us who came over from The Blagog Blog, as the comment system there has been one of the most fun and positive parts of that blog, and it was important for us to get that feature going here.

PlaidHatGames.com is not designed to be a typical publisher's site, with just announcements and game information. We want it to be a living, breathing community! It's always been that way over at the forums, and now our news section will be that way too.

The comment system is integrated into our forums, so if you're already registered and logged in, you can add comments right away. If not, head over and register for our forums to start interacting. We've got a great community here, and Colby, Bistro, Jerry, James, et al participate as well.

Keep it clean on the news comments, kids are reading this stuff.

One dark and stormy night....Just kidding! xD
I'm a very avid gamer & love all kinds. My whole life i've been searching for the best recipe, the best game. The recipe I was looking for was Dice, Cards, Combat, Strategy, but at the same time I love board games. This game hit the nail on the head about 100 times over, Summoner Wars is the best game i've played and I can honestly say that with complete confidence that everyone else here will agree. & ontop of it you guys SPOIL us completely! New factions, dice, reinforcements, premium boards just keep pouring out. I've been here for a long while & i'm so glad I stumbled across this wonderful community. Thanks everyone at PlaidHatGames!



....Now gimmie that free deck LMAO xD

I think I fixed the problem with slashes showing up near apostrophes... Let's see if I did.

Yep. Additionally, yeah html-related characters get escaped but that's on purpose. No need for fancy posting here on the comments, let's keep the site secure.

Awesome website guys! I must admit though I'm one of a few that hasn't played Summoner Wars....yet. Although I do have two copies of Dungeon Run. And my other confession...although I try not to whole heartedly admit it...I just bought an iPad so I can play the iOS Summoner Wars...lol. I think I need a support group. :o)

@JoePinion: I think there's still issues with quotation marks, as in my first comment.

Posted on 2012-06-28.

joepinion commented:

Ok, I think I fixed those too now. The only big bug remaining is the page doesn't properly refresh when you edit a comment. (You'd have to re-click on the news item to see it. No problem actually editing the comment though.)

Yosiel commented:

Wow, I didn't see this before! Good that I checked the Home page after hearing the Podcast, nice stuff indeed. BTW, it cost me a little (with the edits and stuff) to know exactly which comment goes first. Is there any chance to add the time and not just the day on the posted comment info aswell?

Posted on 2012-06-29.

joepinion commented:

Hmmm yes I can probably do that at some point in the future.

Yosiel commented:

On topic: If I could thumbs up your response I would do that ;). Your work is appreciated.

It's late on a Friday night and I'm still refreshing the App Store, knowing it's too late for Summoner Wars to be there right now, but trying anyway. No, still not there. How about now? No.... Now?? Still no. You want my money... I want your app... But still, Apple says "No"... Jerk move, Apple... Jerk Move!

On Facebook you can "Like" something, on BGG you can thumb it, and on some sites you can "dig" it... What about PlaidHatGames? We could "Doug" something but those who don't listen to the podcast would just assume we fail at both spelling and conjugation (cause that's how Ameri-trashers roll, right?).

Things I'd like to see:

- I would like to be able to move from one news article to the next or previous article, without going back to the News menu. (Of course, the meaning of "next" or "previous" depends on which menu you got there from, but there are probably several ways of handling that.)

- I would like to click somewhere to find out "What's New" with the News articles and comments, just like I can in the Forums. And/or subscribe to particular articles or the News in general.

- I agree that it would be nice to thumb entries we like.
