A change will soon be implemented at DepositAccounts.com (DA) to require users to be logged into DA if they want to comment in a blog post. Anonymous comments in blog posts will no longer be allowed.
This change only affects readers who want to comment on a blog post. The DA Forum and Bank Reviews have always required users to be logged in. So there is no change for those comments.
This change is intended to reduce spam comments that take considerable moderation resources. We hope this change will encourage more thoughtful and polite comments that abide by DA’s comment policy.
For many years we have allowed anonymous comments in blog posts to make it easy for readers to post. We have received many informative and insightful anonymous comments, and we are thankful for them. I hope those who have only provided anonymous comments in the past will decide to register at DA so they can continue to comment.
The registration process at DA is simple and free. The only personal information we require is your email address. To register, just click the “Register” link on the top right of most DA pages. A box will open and ask for a “User Name”, a “Password”, and an “Email.” After you provide these and click the “Register” button, DA will send an email to verify your email address. The email message will contain a link that you must click to complete your registration. That will essentially be the only email DA will send to you unless you enable subscriptions.
In addition to being able to comment in blog posts, in the DA Forum and in Bank Reviews, an account at DA will open several features to you. One of those is the Subscription feature. This lets you receive emails of new blog posts or when there’s a new comment in a blog post. You can also set up Bank Alerts for any bank or credit union. This allows you to be notified by email whenever DA has anything new on that institution. That can include a rate change or a new blog or forum post.
To access your account at DA, log into DA by clicking on the “Login” link on the top right of most DA pages. Once logged in, click on your username link that will now be on the top right of the page. This takes you to the DA control panel where you can enable subscriptions, edit your profile settings and review private messages.
