Livefyre makes commenting a cinch and starting a conversation even easier.
Livefyre makes commenting a cinch and starting a conversation even easier.

Welcome to the future. Today we roll out the red carpet on a new commenting system.

Simply put, using our old commenting system, Disqus, could be like trying to talk through a tin can on a string. Livefyre is like having a smartphone with all your favorite apps.

Let's introduce you.

We're breaking down all these nifty features into the basics for you so you can continue to have amazing conversations about the stories you're reading on City Pages.

Can't wait to share a story? Tag your friends on Facebook and Twitter directly through Livefyre to bring them into the conversation. Livefyre brings comment contributors together and makes our site feel more like a community. Want to know what your friends like? Check out what your friends like on Voice Places and the stories they like on the site without logging into different accounts. We've integrated My Voice Nation and the commenting system so you only need one account to be informed about everything from a fantastic place to eat to the hottest news in the Twin Cities.

Need an update now? Staying up to the minute has never been easier with real-time updates so you can chime right into the conversation. Email alerts for comment likes and replies paired with mobile access make commenting on the go effortless. You'll also be able to follow your favorite writers and topics throughout all the Village Voice publications, so you don't have to sift through all the sites.

Don't have a Livefyre account already? Signing up with Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, Google, or your email below is a cinch. Your comments from our old system will automatically roll over into our new one in the next few hours.

Now that we've given you the low-down on Livefyre, be sure to let us know what's working and what's not in our brand new comments section.
