Most recent announcement/change
June 15th, 2017
We have dropped Calendars as they are now due to lack of time to properly maintain this column, which has been neglected in the past few months.
Instead, and to assure a reliable and often updated service concerning product releases, we have switched to occasional articles listing confirmed releases as well as date changes for products. The old calendar page stays there, still displaying old calendars and now listing all articles published under the category “Releases”.
The new webhost moved the website to their data center in mid-April, but the result was the need to find another provider immediately. I won’t name this particular company nor I will venture into giving additional, unnecessary and probably even boring details, but let’s just say that things didn’t work out with them.
Effective from April 18th, 2017, we have finally moved the website to the new, selected web hosting provider and so far things are going quite well and we are very satisfied. We will monitor stuff as usual in the following months, but for now it seems that we have found a service which suits our needs completely.
You can now comment at Moonlit Saki either filling out the comment form with your name/nickname, email address etc., or using a social profile of your choice between Facebook, Twitter or Google+ to login and comment. We have preserved some of Disqus’ features, like upvote and downvote on comments, being able to edit your comment(s), and also having the option to subscribe either to your comments replies or to new comments on a given article.
When you use Facebook, Twitter or Google+ to login and comment, an account at Moonlit Saki will be automatically created with information from your chosen social profile; data collected and stored in our database will be your email and name or nickname used on your social profile, and your IP address will be registered as it did back when we used Disqus. These details are only visible to Moonlit Saki’s owner, and are the same that were collected when using Disqus.
If you choose to comment filling out the form with your name, email etc., the system won’t create an account for you and you will need to either fill out the form again for every new comment, or rely on your browser’s autofill settings. When you login with one of your social profiles, the system will remember you as long as you are logged in either with Facebook, Twitter or Google+.
With the new comment system you will be also able to style your comments, and inserting links and images. As a note, all the comments you have previously left have been preserved and will appear exactly where you left them, only they will be all marked as “Guest Comments”. We are still doing some testing, but you should be able to edit your comments if you login with a social media account and if said profile has the same email you use in your Disqus account.
When plan to do further improvements to the newly introduced comment system in the future as need arise, but in the meantime we hope you will keep leaving your thoughts as you did and have fun interacting with us and other fellow figure lovers and collectors!
Also, please rest assured that your data is protected at Moonlit Saki as we use a secure connection.
For this reason, we will stop using Disqus comment system and implement another system for comments in the near future.
While we love Disqus and its useful features, and we are very sad to be forced to stop using their service, we firmly refuse to agree to suddenly pay for a service we signed up with and used for years for free and which suddenly requires money only to be kept as it was offered in the beginning.
Readers can continue to leave their comments as they did (even while Disqus is still used and working at the website) as all comments are saved in our database automatically when submitted via Disqus and won’t get lost when we will implement the new comment system and permanently drop Disqus.
As you certainly have noticed, Moonlit Saki has been revamped and redesigned a little last week. The revamp was long due, and I actually planned to have all ready with the beginning of 2017, but it took me some more time to get most of the things done, so the new version went up only on January 16th, 2017, with some delay, but turning out just like as I imagined it.
