Today we have also added a more prominent homepage carousel that allows us to showcase the best content currently on the site.
The new commenting system offers an improved experience for users and allows greater interaction, such as the ability to reply in-line to comments, share comments to Facebook/Twitter, and rate comments posted by others.
Existing users should be able to log in and comment with the same details as previously.
Some comments posted in the last week or so may have temporarily disappeared from older articles on the site, but we anticipate these returning within the next week.
