The content of your contributions from this point forward matters more than your past history of commenting. Enhance it by showing us what you can do. Show off your prose stylings. Hunt for evidence that supports your argument or position. Recruit your smartest friends, in-the-know sources, and other participants to join your threads. Incorporate related media. Above all, be interesting.
We’ve sought to democratize the process of commenting, moving away from an outdated system of hierarchies that did not reflect the contributions and abilities of our communities at large. Under the new discussion system, everyone is a moderator over their own conversations, and everyone has the chance to be featured due to the nature of their commentary. Urging friends to join the conversation and curating wisely from your replies can work to shift your standing.
