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.

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Where's The Dashboard?

We see this confusion, a couple times a week, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I? . Where is the dashboard? In the Classic Blogger GUI, the display which contained the "Blog List" (at the top), and the "Reading List" (at the bottom) was labeled "Dashboard". Many people also called the "Settings" / "Template" screens for the various blogs, linked from the Blog List, the dashboard. The New Blogger GUI has no page with the label - and no links "To The Dashboard". The Navbar (another unlabeled feature) has two links - "Design" and "New Post" - which lead to different dashboard sections, when you are appropriately logged in to Blogger . And, the "B" logo at the far left of the navbar will, similarly, take you to the Blog List / Reading List.
