My colleagues at ASAPbio are looking for a system to be used on servers that respects privacy.

They currently use Disqus and would prefer not to have to code it themselves. Do we have something to offer?

@VictorVenema I'm not sure if it's answering your question, but it made me think of dokie.li/

@drb Looks nice. Thanks.

Isn't using Matrix a bit of over-engineering for *public* comments?

@VictorVenema @drb I've used commento in the past. It is Go based: docs.commento.io/getting-start

Another option that I've also used is isso. Python based but not so easy to manage IMHO: github.com/posativ/isso

@VictorVenema perhaps, though they'd have the benefit of being able to deploy their own server. In terms of respecting privacy.

@VictorVenema
Someone suggested (and implemented) Mastodon as comment function.

Couldn't find the toot. It might have been @kubikpixel who postet it.

@kubikpixel
Oh. Than it wasn't you. Sorry.

But thanks for the link.
It's almost the thing I was looking for. 👍
@VictorVenema

@M That is beautiful. For a preprint server where most users will not have a Mastodon account, it may be a too big hurdle to require people to make a Mastodon account (on another server and thus find a server). You want people to comment, not discourage them. @kubikpixel

@VictorVenema
Thats right.
However, most comment functions require some sign-in anyway. So I think thats not tooooo far away.

But your're right: easy (to use) solutions, will help that people will use it.
