Comments now powered by Disqus, easier than ever to be in the discussion

The first month of the new year is about to end and we thought we’d introduce a new feature for our loyal readers. We are proud to announce that our commenting system is now being powered by Disqus. Now its easier than ever to be a part of the discussion!

In the past, we were using a standard form of commenting, which required you to be a registered member on the site to post or post anonymously. The process was slow and scared away many people who wanted to participate in a discussion. Well, not anymore. With Disqus, we allow anyone to post a comment anonymously, or log in via Google, Yahoo, OpenID, Facebook, or Twitter.

In essence, you don’t have to create an account on WinBeta anymore in order to post a comment. However, we encourage you to create an account on the site to be able to participate in giveaways which we do periodically. Becoming a member on our site also allows you to have a special profile page, have the ability to watch certain posts, be able to send private messages and emails, as well as be a member on the site that has been in the community since 1998.

On a side note, we also upgraded our RAM and tweaked a few settings so the website should be a lot faster and less sluggish than before. Overall, we hope you have a better experience on the site.

Of course, we just implemented this new feature and expect there to be a bug or two. Please let us know (via commenting below) if you encounter any problems. Happy Commenting!
