Echo engineers for js-kit, our comments company, and I have revised our link to transfer Haloscan comments to Echo, and re-designed our link to Echo directly, so I can then manipulate the html to produce a comment section to our satisfaction. This includes re-writing parts of the template.
The trouble with the comments in the last several weeks was a problem in how the servers processed input and queueing (waiting in line)…I believe it has been fixed for us, both the long wait time and at least the 3000 character limit.
I will not attempt the changes until the weekend. Thanks for your patience.
