New comments system going live tomorrow…

We are moving from Disqus to a new comments system called Hyvor.

We will make the switch tomorrow (Tuesday).

During the switch, the comments will temporarily disappear from all old posts while they migrate across to the new platform.

They should reappear in a day or two.

Comments on all posts will be closed tomorrow as well so we don’t lose any during the migration.

For instructions on how to set up an account on the new system and for a chance to try it out please visit our special Open Post….


We are reader supported. Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger. While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
