I was going to make a joke question (hurr durr what we be a good question to ask) but I do actually have a serious one.

How does the comment system on this website work? Like, how do I assign a profile image? Is there a central notification system to check if someone had replied to me on an older page? What would/does prevent people from impersonating other users?

Oh to be honest I have no idea, since I’m using WordPress’s internal comment system. I can set profile stuff for myself and I can check the IPs on comments to authenticate identities, but unfortunately I don’t think it allows commenters to set up anything. I used to run Disqus on the last iteration of the site when I wasn’t using WordPress and I know it allows for that stuff, but I haven’t messed with it since WordPress is kind of a headache to do extensive customization on. Hope that helps!

After checking the source of your profile image with the Chrome developer console, I managed to find Gravatar. So I guess I figured that part out.

You said that you used to use Disqus, which is a pretty good system. Was there a particular reason for the switch to WordPress, or was it personal preference?
