Tuesday -the Wakefield Doctrine- ‘lets all go test our comment function!’

Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers)


I must be getting closer to actually doing a final edit on Chapter 4 (and maybe 5) of ‘Home and Heart (a Sister Margaret Ryan novel)’, ’cause here I am writing a post!

So anyway, Friend of the Doctrine R L Cadillac writes,

I just don’t understand why us wordpress.com folks can’t reply to comments from “dot com” only folks, without trotting back over to your blogs–it’s not just yours, it’s an issue with paid and free WP blogs, apparently. And I forget every week, so I’ve resorted to copy and paste when I get the msg “your comment failed, please try again” :) :) :) See you later for more stories!!

So what say we all head over to her site (click here) and leave a comment, just to make sure it’s not just her site causing the trouble. Stop back here and let us know if you encounter any problems leaving a comment.

And just to make this sound, scientific-methodistically speaking,  why don’cha stop over at Cynthia’s Intuitive and Spiritual  and  zoe’s Uncharted and Denise’s Girlie on the Edge…. hey, you know who we haven’t seen all that recently?  Lizzi   say ‘hello.
(I’d suggest heading over to Val’s place... but she writing for the Antelopes to Zena Challenge and is probably hard at work, unlike some blog writers I could name.)

Ok, I suspect I’ve started enough trouble for one morning. Back to work for me.

Well, what exactly do you want to know? Whether I am a clark or a scott or roger? If you have to ask, then you need to keep reading the Posts for two reasons: a)to get a clear enough understanding to be able to make the determination of which type I am and 2) to realize that by definition I am all three.* *which is true for you as well, all three...but mostly one

    I always get your comments on my wordpress phone app, but if I try to comment on the comment from my phone, then I am unable to. I guess that is what the Facebook is for.

      I haven’t tried the phone app (in part because I have to ration myself… the mindset here and the mindset that’s required to function in the ‘real’ world are quite distinct and, to a degree, antithetical*)

      *see? I hardly ever use that word when showing a house.. “Why yes, Mrs. Bonemeal, the Sellers have done lovely things with the landscaping. Their presentation of a koi pond in the middle of extensive Xeriscaping is quite provocative. Are you gonna buy this dump, or what?”

    Enough trouble! lol. (Thanks for the shout-out!!)
    And no, you’re not the only blog like that. My blog is like that with comments because I’m a .com person. LOL. Perhaps wordpress will figure out how to make it easier one of these days.
    In the meantime, I’ve got little systems in place to help me keep track of who is where and where I need to comment….

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      love to find out more about your tracking system
      the only thing I have to contribute to the topic is something that everyone no doubt already does, ‘copy the comment before attempting to submit’

  3. There are only a couple blogs that I have onging problems commenting on, one is a WordPress blog and one is a Blogger blog. I have no idea why. I have had random people say the same about mine. I am not techie enough to know what the issue is or how to resolve it, but if all else fails a comment can be sent my email if one is provided, just to let the author know you are reading their posts. I like your suggestion to go out and pay a few visits though! I try to keep up with everyone who has posted something new by using Bloglovin’. It’s slow to update but seems to get the job done.

    Since I upgraded your comments are one of the few that always require moderation …

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      thats not right! (Well, consider they’re my comments…lol) probably theres a plugin out there in wordpress… the ‘oh-man-its-that-Doctrine-guy-trying-to-be-clever- patch lol

  5. Thank you Clark!
    Commentation in general hasn’t been bad in my experience of late – only 1 or 2 instances where my comment simply wouldn’t “take”. I learned a long time ago to copy my comment before submitting lol Only takes 1 time writing a long ass comment only to have it disappear to make you mouse shy :)
    Ah, the elusive Lizzi…where she be?
