Yackety-yak: Commenting


I have one quick little question for you my darlings.
When you comment on posts, do you prefer the comment box
embedded below the post or in a pop-up window?
Thanks for chiming in. Happy Monday!

  1. oooh, first commenter!! i like embedded b/c my computer is slow sometimes and it takes FOREVER for the pop ups to load. :)

  2. I also like embedded or if it is a pop up comment box, then please don't navigate me away from the main post, that frustrates me, because I would like to re-read the post so that I can comment on everything.

  3. Embedded; it takes forever for a pop-up to fully load.
    This is my first time here, so hi :)

  4. Stella: Oh the independent windows. I don't like those either ;)

  5. The pop up window. But either is ok with me!

  6. I like it when it is embedded. It just seems easier.

  7. I think the pop-up window... Though it's okay either way. :)

  8. I like embedded. The pop-ups don't always load. I also click back a lot in order to comment on specific sentences.

  9. I like embedded just because my popup blocker can hide the popup window. Or I loose it behind so many other windows. Love the pic of the two ladies in the fancy dresses :)

  10. Cari: 1. Good point! I've had that happen to me :)
    2. Thanks :) they make me want to run to an English tea house immediately.

  11. Embedded are okay, but I prefer the pop up....for me it usually takes less time to load

  12. Embedded, though I don't know why. Pop-ups kind of irk me.

  13. Personally, I like the pop-up windows. I find that it loads faster rather than waiting for the full page to load again (which seems to be the opposite of what everyone else finds!) and I like how you can easily re-read certain parts of the post without scrolling up.

  14. Still neck and neck :) Interesting :)
    Thanks all!
    Keep the thoughts coming!

  15. Embedded! I'm stuck with dial-up out here in the sticks and it makes things easier for me!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like pop ups.. because when it's a long post or if I want to write my comment as I read the post, it's easier. Embedded means going all the way up and down and up... :(

    ReplyDelete
  17. Embedded. Just easier to me. C:

    ReplyDelete
  18. I like pop ups, so then I can still read the post while I comment. I'm lazy like that ;)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Pop up window, for sure. Because if I'm reading at work, the network won't let me comment on embedded ones. I don't know why. But grrrr.

    ReplyDelete
  20. embedded is nicer for me... :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Pop-up! I have trouble with the embedded ones sometimes (and they take FOREVER to load).

    ReplyDelete
  22. Embedded comment boxes! They're easier and load up with the page. :D

    ReplyDelete
  23. I like the comment box embedded.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I really don't have a preference, either one is fine =)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Sorry I have been gone for a while. Will do my best to catch up!!!

    In reference to your question, either is fine with me! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like both of them......pop up seems to load faster but Im not on a certain comment team..:D

    ReplyDelete
  27. I like popups. Sometimes, when there are tons of comments in one post, it's a nuisance to scroll all the way down. But it doesn't bother me these days.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I like it they way you have it. It works great!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm definitely more of a pop up girl. I'm not a fan of going back and forth if I need to comment on more than one post (which happens often). Although, this is a bit of the pot calling the kettle black...I have yet to figure out how to make my own comments pop up. :o)

    Either way...I'll still be commenting. ;o)

  30. I like embedded but had to switch to pop-up because my comments stopped showing. Others have had the same problem. I’d love to switch back but I’m afraid the problem will repeat itself.

    ReplyDelete
  31. as long as there isn't a captcha phrase after the embedded post it's fine. But I often post a comment and close the blog before the captcha phrase pops up. I prefer the pop-up.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm glad you asked. I usually prefer the popup, because the embedded form hates me. I normally have to submit my comments twice (three times if using capcha) before the embedded form will accept them.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Comments either way are fine for me. I have occasional issues with both comment forms, however with the embedded I do sometimes miss the word verification and never leave a comment becuase I close too fast.
    I say whatever works for you baby!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow. Thank you ladies for all the feedback. It appears embedded is winning so far. But only by a two point margin. I'm still pondering my choices...
    ;)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I definitely prefer popup-- I can minimize it to see the original-- then when I've finished commenting, I am right where I left off on the blog. Now there is only a one point margin!

    :o)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I have to say that I prefer the comment box
    embedded below the post. I think it makes it easier. =)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Cozy: Thanks doll for your input :)
    Bere: Me too, I think ;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've always wondered about this too! But I find embedded ones make it easier to comment. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Pop up used to really annoy me, but I now I prefer it to having to scroll down.

    ReplyDelete
  40. box embedded below, I find it easier.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Embedded below. Hmmm. I'll have to check to see what my blog is. But I wouldn't know how to change it anyway.

    LOVE this picture -- I'm going to steal it.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I prefer embedded. Sometimes pop-ups don't load very quickly, or you get an error message and lose what you wrote, and that's frustrating. Plus, I often have many windows going, and if something pops up, I may have moved on to something else and forget it's there, and by the time I realize, whatever I wanted to say is gone.

  43. Misty: I feel the same way these days. Pop-ups are just another step ;)

    Kim & Cherry & Josette: Agreed :)
