Advanced Aquarist February 2009 issue introduces comment system

by Owen James

More evidence that 2009 will be the year of the aquarium blog, as Advanced Aquarist has just added readers’ comments to the bottom of all articles published by the online magazine.

Previously, discussion tended to relocate to the magazine’s sister Reefs.org forum.

Editor Terry Siegel writes that:

We noticed a lot of great discussions going on in the online communities about [the articles].

This discussion is great! On the flip side, though, it does lead to a somewhat fragmented and broken discussion on the topic as people that frequent one discussion forum may not read a similar thread on a separate forum and thereby may miss out on some interesting tidbit of information.

To attempt to address this observation, as of this issue we have enabled comments on all of our articles.

Terry adds that the forum software behind Reefs.org will be upgraded next month.

Don’t forget a new hardcopy version of Advanced Aquarist recently went on sale.
