The Perils of Comment Spam & Other IssuesWednesday, April 20, 2011
We’ve all had to deal with spam in one form or another, whether in emails, on websites, or in our physical mailbox. Lately, it’s been a bit of an issue on Crimson Sky Graphics. Due to this, I recently found out that a few of my legit comments had accidentally ended up in the spam folder.
Although I think that I’ve corrected the issue now and approved those comments to their proper places in the site, I feel terrible that some sat in spam limbo for up to a month. The writers took the time to think, write, and send those comments about various posts and content on this website, and they almost got lost. So, if you have noticed a delay and/or lack of approval to your comment (assuming it was not, in fact, actual spam), I sincerely apologize to you. It wasn’t intentional.
Hopefully I’ve got this problem fixed and it doesn’t happen again. One of the major points of the website redesign was to allow people to interact so much easier on here, so this was the last thing I wanted.
Thanks again to all of the wonderful feedback I do receive from you all, and for the time you put into visiting the site!
On a side note, I also found a recent problem that arose in the blog section of the site, which caused all content to show up as blog posts. This was completely unintended. Only actual blog entries should be featured on this page. I think it was caused by a WordPress update conflicting with the theme. Anyway, I fixed this little problem as soon as I realized it existed. You should now only see the proper posts in the proper sections.
