Maybe you want to use the triangle, that was featured on HN a few days ago :) -- http://codepen.io/chriscoyier/full/lotjh
Is the source available for this anywhere? I would love to see some of it.
Credit for the bulk of the work must go to Stephen McDonald who made Mezzanine and Drum, of course.
Blog post with more info here: http://hypertexthero.com/logbook/2013/10/intro-food-news/
The source is here: https://github.com/hypertexthero/fn
I'll check out the CSS triangle.
I used Disqus (which I think is excellent) for another experiment I did (much worse than Stephen McDonald's work with Mezzanine/Drum!): https://github.com/hypertexthero/hir - http://rome.hypertexthero.com/
I often think about this, but at this time still prefer not using a third party for comments, especially on a site where the comments are so important.
In my case, there's another site that I frequent that has a huge Disqus community, but it is desperately in need of social bookmarking functionality. I'm considering launching an independent site to provide it.
I recently also built a HN Clone with Flask, this one for Open Data, Data Visualization, and other things along those lines.
It was my first major Flask app and I mostly wanted to build it to learn. I definitely recommend this as a good learning application. Its complex enough you need to put in some thought but do-able at the same time.

Thanks for letting me know about datanews and sharing the source. I like Python and Django a lot and want to try something with Flask, too.
It might be nice if rather than assigning you a random string as a username it used something like "Click here to set your user name".
Agreed and it's on the [todo list](https://github.com/hypertexthero/fn#things-to-do)
I also should have figured out what was wrong with memcache before publishing. Server seems to be taking a beating right now. If it goes down, my apologies — working on it.
I think the messages are inheriting from Mezzanine's messages app here https://github.com/stephenmcd/mezzanine/blob/master/mezzanin... - will fix it.
