You asked for specific feedback on the new comment format on the Cardinals hacking board. I posted this but to make sure you got it I posted again here:

No edit available for typo’s. Most recent posts should be at the top and not the bottom plus Box to post new comments should be at the top not the bottom. Is also nice to have an option to agree or disagree with a particular post thumbs up or down or like etc.

I had to reset my password to log into the commenting system, but when I reset it I was directed to WordPress, and an error page popped up telling me this:

“You attempted to access the “Trade Rumors” dashboard, but you do not currently have privileges on this site. If you believe you should be able to access the “Trade Rumors” dashboard, please contact your network administrator.

If you reached this screen by accident and meant to visit one of your own sites, here are some shortcuts to help you find your way.

I clicked on the “Visit Dashboard” link to see what happens and it appears was logged in at MLBTR. Or is that just the way the commenting system is designed?

Also when I tried to contact MLBTR, on my Safari it tells me to select a purpose of the email. But there is nothing to select. So when I tried to send this as an email it just gave me another error message.
