We are very excited to announce that we have a new commenting platform that we’ll be launching on Thursday.
SNY has partnered with Spot.IM to bring you a more dynamic commenting experience across our web site. In the process, we migrated your current Livefyre user accounts and hundreds of thousands of comments to the new system.
The look is slightly different than before and we’ve added some great, new features. You’ll still be able to publish comments and follow conversations in real time. You’ll continue to benefit from threaded conversations. And if you have notifications settings enabled, you’ll receive emails alerting you when others reply to one of your comments or mention you.
Spot.IM also brings these features:
1) Live chatting with bubble awareness indicators
2) Support for rich media with photos (including GIFs) and video
3) Profile pages to more easily see your own or another user’s commenting history
We hope this switch provides a cleaner, faster, more engaging commenting environment. We’ll be using this opportunity to more aggressively moderate discussions. We strive for abuse-free conversations that add value and provide insightful and passionate discussion about your favorite New York sports teams.
