We’ve made two changes recently that may impact expected behavior.
The first is that new users will have to confirm their account from the link sent to their email prior to logging in.
Secondly, default comment settings for new blogs will require commenters to be ramapages.us members. Site owners still have the ability to open comments to anyone but they’ll need to update their site settings to do that. Instructions on how to change your comment settings can be found at this link.
