tired of being moderated?!

Hey everyone,

I meant to provide these instructions ages ago and forgot, but Joy and VC reminded me tonight. If you have registered with WordPress and you’re not an unpleasant Tea Party type, then your comments will show up automatically on this blog (so long as you’re signed in to your WordPress account at the time of posting).

But if you don’t have a WordPress account then you’re not ‘recognized’ when you visit, no matter how many times you’ve posted before, so your comments will be held up for moderation (I explained to VC that I hate having to do this, but if I didn’t we’d be overrun by Tea Party lovelies).

If you would like to sign up to WordPress just click here

Note: You don’t have to sign up for your own blog – just click where it says ‘Sign up for just for a username’ on the right.

Then pick your username and password, and that’s it – you have a WordPress account and you won’t be moderated here any more! And you can choose your own little pic for your avatar by going here

If you have any problems let me know and I’ll sort them out tomorrow.

Thanks everyone.

    Yes, thank you Chipsticks. I got the wordpress thing done, but got stumped on the avatar again – didn’t save it in the right file (jpeg?)on my computer, I think. Made progress though, because this time I got as far as choosing a picture. :)Will try again tomorrow. Sleep well, everyone!

      Hiya VC, I think any photo format should work on Gravatar but I used .jpg and it was fine, so try that. Once you choose the photo from your computer, click next – that will take you to the editing page where you can crop the photo you’ve chosen. Click ‘crop and finish’, it’ll then take you to the page where you choose a rating for your Gravatar (choose ‘General’, unless there’s some nakedness going on). The next page completes the whole thing, letting you associate the picture you’ve chosen with the account you’ll be using. Let me know if it works!
