Ah ok! Thanks I'll give that a shot. I was just about to ask why it wasn't an announcement and then I noticed that Audy updated the changes thread and I had completely missed it. I thought it had to do with something funky going on on my phone (which it usually did) and came how and then went "hmm.. guess they are really gone."
Sorry for jumping to the conclusion without properly looking into the other thread. <3 And thanks for the explanation.

Edit: I went to take a look and I can enable it, but I can't set the whole un-anonymous thing by default option. Just wanted to let you know that.

I'm afraid the Anonymous checkbox has to be unchecked manually every time for now :\

I did that on purpose. o.O I thought people wanted anonymous by default. It can easily be changed.

Oh is it on when you actually leave a comment? I thought it was in your settings..
Well I havent been able to test it yet then (if it's a popup thing attached to the commentbox) because it doesnt seem like anyone else has theirs enabled..

I rather like the overhauls that the system got. It makes sense to be able to turn them on and off. Not everyone wants to hear comments from the "Peanut Gallery", and some people do. I don't mind them because I ignore negative comments in general and like to give helpful comments to posts.

I'm using Let's Fly Together as the skin.

I can't see any option to post a comment on your posts and my post comments are enabled too.

Yeah it does. The button won't appear on their posts if they have the system disabled.

Oh yeah, I know, but Kura understood that the option would be available to be set by default, or at least that's what she said on her PD XD

Actually, I thought it was an option in your user CP rather than in the same box as where you would be giving your comment :3 But it is working now so I am very happy. I also like how you added that even anon comments can be reported- if I knew that a long time ago then I could've saved myself getting upset over a few negative things said. Now I just brush them off but I think that having the info there will discourage people from posting negative things altogether <3 Horrah! Thanks!

Just wanted to say major thanks for the update on Post Comments! Finally, my Post Comments can actually (rather than potentially) be attributed to me when I send them! Not to mention that people can toggle anonymity and whether the whole system is enabled, in general.

I got really confused at first (and subsequently thought I was encountering a glitch) because I wasn't seeing any "Post Comment" buttons on a lot of posts, but then I realized that people with the Post Comment system disabled in their own preferences wouldn't have the Post Comment button on their posts (if I'm understanding correctly @_@)... Since everyone has the system disabled by default, I would assume that most users' posts will lack the feature until said users find out about and enable the revamped Post Comment System. I imagine that it would get a bit frustrating if I want to leave a Post Comment on a post of a user who has the Post Comment system disabled, but I suppose it can't be helped.. :x

As for the "anonymity by default" thing, it would be nice if users could set their own preference as to whether they want the Post Comments they send out to be automatically anonymous or automatically non-anonymous. But I guess the current system isn't too bad, as long as I remember to un-check for the time being.. :o

Also, so are all Post Comments prior to the August 2013 "revamp" set as anonymous or are they dependent on the user's preferences (the preference of the user who sent the comment)? I checked my 'Latest Post Comments' received, and all of them state Anonymous as the sender, for now.

Finally, I think it would be helpful if there was a forum-wide announcement (maybe for a month or so, or up to around the release of Pokemon X and Y) to notify more people of the feature and the aforementioned revamp. I just happened to notice this change since the "Small Updates and Changes" was posted in recently enough that it was shown on PokeCommunity's front page... I think only the users who "know/keep up with the status of" the Post Comment system would be aware of the recent change, and it could easily be overlooked by other users (especially since the Post Comment system is now disabled by default, so you likely won't know that the system/revamp even exists/has been changed in the first place unless you comb through your User Preferences section).

I hope this makes sense! (I'm kind of getting a headache just trying to sort this thread out myself XD) Thanks again for the revamp!

Before the revamp; ALL post comments were anonymous. There was no choice, you had to type out who you were if you wanted to reveal yourself.

After the revamp, post comments default to anonymous still. However there is a checkbox you can untick to show your username in the post comment to the receiver.

H-Staff (SMods/Admins) has always been able to see who exactly sent a post comment. The revamp was basically done to ensure that everyone knows that they can report a post comment if they get one that breaks the rules by PMing a member of H-Staff.
