The comments system is live again. You can choose to register an account, which comes with some minor benefits listed out on the registration page, or you can simply post comments without an account. All you need to do then is add your name (a pseudonym, or pen name, or anything really will do), add a comment, and tick the I'm not a robot checkbox to prove you're not Skynet.
There are still a couple of things to do. Remember me is currently thouroughly forgetful, and the Reset Password functionality isn't available. These features will be following shortly. It's been a busy month, mainly due to work and a lot of overtime to launch our biggest project yet.
I've added another scrawl, finally. I think these creatures would give me pause too.
Edit: The remember me and reset password capabilities are now live.
