This guide explains how to:
You must be logged in to see (or post) comments. To log in, enter your user name and password in the appropriate boxes at the top of the screen. If comments do not appear, you should refresh or restart your browser.
Scroll to the bottom of the comments to see the comment entry form. Type your comment in the “Type your comment here..." field, then click the "Post" button.
An avatar is a little picture associated with your login that represents you. It appears with each of your comments.
If you log in to the commenting system via AOL, Google, Yahoo or OpenID, any avatar you have associated with those accounts will show up with your comment(s).
To post an avatar with your PG+ account, log in to PG+ using your PG+ user name and password. On the menu bar, go to My Account > My Profile. Click "Change your profile picture." Click the "Browse…" button to locate your new avatar on your computer (you will need to have an avatar image on your computer already). Once you’ve found the image, click the "UPLOAD" button. The avatar will appear below on the page.
Yours and other people's comments will appear automatically, as long as your mouse cursor is not over the comment area. Move your mouse cursor anywhere else on the page to allow the comments to auto-refresh. Move your cursor over the comments to pause them so you can read what's there.
The number of characters you have left will appear beneath the comment window. When you reach or exceed the limit, the character count message will be replaced with: "Character limit exceeded" and the cursor will be placed at the end of the text.
Highlight the text you wish to be in bold and click the "B" just above where you type your comment. The system automatically inserts the brackets around your text.
Or, you can click the "B" just above where you type your comment. <b> </b> will appear in the comment window. Place your cursor after <b> and type the word or phrase you want to be boldface. When you are finished, move your cursor to the right of </b> and continue typing your comment.

Place your cursor after <u> and type the word or phrase you want to be underlined. When you are finished, move your cursor to the right of </u> and continue typing your comment.
Click the "Reply" link at the bottom of the comment to which you'd like to reply. A form will appear for you to enter and post your reply.
Click the "Flag" link at the bottom of the comment you'd like to flag as being abusive. The link will change from "Flag" to "Flagging" to "Unflag" and a message will be sent to the system administrator, who will then make a judgment on whether to remove the comment.
In response to your requests, comments are ordered with the most recent comments on the bottom.
We hope to make ordering an option that you can set, so that if you'd like more recent comments at the top of the comment list, you can make that your default view.
If you like emoticons, those little icons that express your mood, then you may click any of them that appear above the comment window, and the code for the emoticon will appear in your comment.
Q: I cannot see the comments! What is wrong?
A: The most common problem is that commenting system still has a session open for your but the browser has closed it, causing a synchronization problem. First try refreshing your browser. If that does not work, try restarting your browser.
Q: Can I leave the commenting system open all the time?
A: You are welcome to leave the session open for the duration of a game. In fact, we encourage you to do so. However, we do not recommend you leave your browser logged into PG+ when you are not using it. Every session creates some load on the system and can degrade performance. And it can cause the synchronization problem described in the question above.
Q: Where did my comment go? I think the system ate my comment!
A: It probably did. Try refreshing your browser and posting again.
Q: Why does PG+ run slow sometimes?
A: PG+ is a very popular site, particularly during sporting events. Excessive load can impact performance. These periods are usually very brief and clear up on their own.
Q: Does PG+ work on mobile?
A: At present, PG+ does not support mobile, but depending on what mobile device you have, you may have a pleasant experience with mobile. If things don’t look right, you can scroll to the bottom of the web page and click on the link that says "Standard Version." For most mobile web browsers, this will work. We understand that mobile should be a big part of the PG+ experience and we are working diligently to support it, but at present we do not.
