What Happened to Disqus Comments on Mathaba?

I used to like the fact that we could comment on Mathaba articles, but it seems to have gone, what is up with that?

You may well be asking yourself that question, or something similar, or perhaps you are just wondering what happened to the Disqus comments system that was under the end of each article on the free Mathaba.Net site?

Due to the fact that moderation of spam, off-topic or other violations requires time and resources, as well as other limitations of Disqus (e.g. not working on many mobile devices, while a great many Mathaba readers are on mobiles), we will be disabling Disqus.

We had a number of moderators registered but almost all the work fell onto the shoulders of just one or two people, who have more important editing tasks to deal with, and this was eating up time and effort.

This means there will be no comment system in the free parts of Mathaba.Net, however, anyone can become a Mathaba Gold Subscriber or Mathaba Silver Member and use our own Mathaba Comments System, which also works well on all mobiles.

To join Mathaba Silver or Gold, go to http://www.mathaba.net/subscribe/individual.htm

Moreover, the Disqus system and all its comments, are still available under the members versions of all articles, so nothing is lost. If you want to continue to comment, and we hope you will, you'll just have to sign up for either Mathaba Gold Subscription or Silver Membership.

We have also simplified the means of getting free Mathaba Silver Membership for those who aren't able, or don't wish to support us in maintaining our independence from government and other corporate sponsorships.

On the sign-up page at www.mathaba.net/subscribe/individual.htm you can view a comparison between Mathaba Gold and the free version of the site, and you can also see there a link that takes you to information on how to get Silver Membership.

This comes as part of our efficiency improvement, better managing of limited resources, reliance on in-house technology and disposal of third-party systems, and our drive to have regular readers or "Mathabaholics" use of the many benefits of the members area.

Other changes and further explanations of developments at Mathaba and our plans, will be made available in Mathaba Gold/Silver.

So what are you waiting for, sign up now, if you can for a paid subscription of under ten Euro per month to Mathaba Gold, or otherwise earn yourself in under 10 minutes a Mathaba Silver membership, and within days you'll have full access to members-only articles.
