      I admit it. I signed up to Medium for a year, afraid of losing what I enjoy here on Yabberz.

      Yes, I knew the format would be very different, but I still thought there would be a little space for comment, discussion, back-and-forth-- the things I have enjoyed here.

      But it's a hinky site, in my experience so far, so I'm writing for advice from those who may have crossed over.

      Has anybody been able to comment on a post there?

      Below is a screen shot from this morning: a fascinating read posted last month by Medium author Cat Ladner. I would love to have commented on it, or to see comments from others. There is what looks like a "comment" icon below the article (a speech balloon like in the comics) with the numeral 7 beside it, but clicking on the thing produces no response, and of course there is no explanation as to what the icon really means. I assumed it might mean there had been 7 comments and I'd love to have seen them.


      Too much of the time, I can't even get into the Medium site and they ask me to try again later:

          I am recovering from surgery. I tried logging in a few times to make a comment and was unable to do so. Was going to try and tackle the problem when I felt better. At least now I know I am not the only one.

              Thanks for the compliment - to comment yu have to scroll down below claps, the author's mini bio and the Yabberz thingy to where it says response, and just start typing. It is a hinky way to set this up, and in fact I am not at all enamored of Medium even though I am signed up and supposedly an admin. All I really do is make sure whoever writes a piece gets it published. A bunch of us have joined - on facebook - a private group that Joel set up called New Yabz. I would love to see you there as your posts are often insightful and sometimes witty. Here is a link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2382465685318893/?...

              All Yabberzites are welcome.

              Even though I had rarely checked out Facebook (mostly to see pictures y family posts) this is a bit different in that we are sharing our comments about politics for the most part, and it is a private group. It is not as wonderful as this site, but it still has many of the original wonderful people on it, and once I got the hang of posting on it I was very excited at the interactions and give and take. Murph is also working with PlanetPOV to see if that format can become more like this one. I think we’ll find a way to keep the resistance to Trump and the desire to progress our country going on one or more of these new ways.

              If you still have trouble commenting on Medium, let me know ?

                  One thing that I learned about posting on Facebook is that when I press the "enter" key on my computer to start a new paragraph it actually is like clicking on the "Blue Post" button here in Yabberz and it will end your comments and post them immediately instead of jumping a line and starting a new paragraph. I later found out that if you press the "Shift" key on the computer keyboard and then the "enter" key on the computer keyboard at the same time it will give you a new line instead of making the post. Something to remember when making a post on Facebook. And also on a facebook comment in a Facebook page there is a /\ sign on the right side of the post usually about half way down the right side of your post. You can right click on this /\ and then choose to edit your post. So if you mess up and hit the enter button before you are done typing your post and want to go back and edit the post just right click on the /\ icon on the right side of your post and then choose to edit the post. Remember to get a new line or paragraph in a facebook post just use Shift Enter in combination. It may be Control Enter if the Shift Enter doesn't work. One or the other will keep you from posting before you are done typing and gives you a new line or paragraph.

                      Thanks, Cat. It works fine now, but I swear to bejeebuz I couldn't make it work earlier today.

                      As with most technology where Yours Truly is concerned, the most likely bug in the system is "operator error".
