New Comment Moderation System, And Difficulties With Moderation

As the new comment moderation system gets deployed on more blogs, we are seeing a few reports of problems moderating using email. Some bloggers report inability to moderate, without having to sign in again, repeatedly, to their Blogger accounts. Other blogger have observed that some comments, selected as "Publish" or "Mark as spam", seem to remain in the current queue also. In some cases, bloggers have selected "Publish" repeatedly, with no error provided.

We know that the connections between Blogger accounts and email addresses are complex, and are known to cause various problem using Blogger. It's also possible that there is a unique problem with specific blogs, which was explicitly caused by migration to the new system.

For issues with the new Comment Moderation system, Blogger has provided a pinned discussion in Blogger Help Forum: Blogger Feature Suggestions & Feedback. Here, we see the question based advice
We've just released a new feature to our comments system which filters our spam and enables you to better moderate comments on your blog. Please let us know your thoughts, whether it be about the accuracy of our spam detection, ways we could improve the process, or anything else on your mind.
Followed by a brief plea.
But please keep it constructive

And participate - because the new system is not optional.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
