What is Comment Castles?

Comment Castles is an internet forum. Users write posts, nested comments, user profiles and sub descriptions. Each post must be assigned to a sub.


Use new post in the site header to create a post. The home page displays all posts from all users. You can sort posts by newest, oldest, most comments and most recent comment. These sorting options are at the top of the home page and at the top of subs.


You can write comments on posts and other comments. If you're logged in, then there's a comment form at the top of each post and comment page, and there are "reply" links below each comment.

User Profiles

All usernames link to the user's profile page. User profile pages display the username and a profile blurb if the user has filled it in. Users can edit their profile on the profile settings page.


The inbox shows all comments that have been made directly on your posts and comments.


These are the available formatting rules for posts, comments, user profiles and sub descriptions:


When you create a post you assign it to a community called a sub. Each sub has its own page with all of its posts. For example, the meta sub. The sub name and about link show in the site header when you are inside a sub.

User Settings

You can access the user settings in the main site navigation. You can use the user settings even if you're logged out. Additional user settings for logged in users are at username, profile and app IDs. Username is for changing your username, and profile is for editing your profile blurb. App IDs are for developers and the instructions can be found in step 1 of the user authentication section of the API documentation.

The following are the user settings:

Sub Settings

If you are the sub moderator and you are in the sub then there will be a second colored settings link in the main navigation. On the sub settings page you can set the sub description which displays on the sub about page.


Moderators can permanently delete posts and comments. There is a site moderator that can delete any post or comment. Each sub has a moderator who can only delete posts and comments from that sub. The first user to create a post for a sub becomes the moderator for that sub.


You can edit your posts and comments anytime you want. For posts, the edit link is to the right of the comment count. And for comments the edit link is to the right of the permalink and reply links.


You can delete your posts and comments at anytime. The delete link for posts and comments is to the right of the edit link. Post and comment deletion is permanent and the data is actually deleted from the database. When you delete a post or comment, then all of its comments will also be permanently deleted.


There is no font face set for this website. So, the font that you see is the one set in the browser settings. Therefore, you can change the font for this website by selecting a different font in your browser settings.
