If you haven't noticed yet, AP comments are now powered by Disqus. It took a really long time to squash all integration bugs and accept some downsides of moving to a non-native comment system, but when two complicated systems and over a hundred thousand comments are involved, migration gets a little tricky (to say the least).

After studying the code of the Disqus plugin to the point that I am now familiar with it more intimately than I ever cared to be, over 200 emails with the Disqus team, reporting multiple bugs and submitting code patches, many sleepless nights, ripped our hairs, and cursing, I was finally satisfied enough to pull the trigger last Saturday night. The beast was unleashed, and after about a week rolling with Disqus, I wouldd say it's a big success. There are still numerous issues that the company will hopefully work out in the next few months, but for the most part, the pluses outweigh the minuses.

Benefits

On the surface, here are some user-facing benefits of using Disqus:

  • you're automatically logged in on all sites that use Disqus which means less email/name/url typing. If you don't want to sign in, you don't have to - comments can be left without having an account as well
  • alternate login methods, such as Twitter, Facebook, Google, Yahoo, and OpenID
  • threaded replies (actually, this is not really a benefit over our system, as we also had threaded comments)
  • comment editing - you can edit your comments at any time, which wasn't possible before
  • track your comments from one central location
  • slicker, JS/Ajax-powered interface that doesn't require reloading the page after posting or logging in. In fact, new comments show up live too
  • comment ratings so that bad comments are buried and good ones surface to the top
  • comment flagging - see a spammer? Just flag the comment, and the moderators will be alerted
  • comment sorting - newest first, oldest first, best rating, popular now
  • post ratings so that you can tell how many people and who liked any given post
  • replies by email - you can reply to Disqus notifications right from your inbox (just make sure to clean up your signature) and they'll get posted right up.
  • mobile support - Disqus has excellent mobile support and integrated seamlessly into our mobile site. On the mobile front, I have 0 issues with Disqus, they really did it right

On the backend:

  • a Javascript-based comment system will allow us to implement better caching, letting the same hardware handle more page loads. It should also help move to multiple web servers
  • email moderation, including deleting, spamming, and approving comments

In general, less friction should translate to more comments, and if it's easier for you to join a conversation, we are doing something right after all.

Problems

Here are some problems with Disqus that may not be immediately apparent:

  • there are occasional bugs here and there in both the JS interface and the backend. While I've finally worked out integration issues, bugs in day-to-day operations, unfortunately, still exist
  • comments are synced back to the local database for a number of reasons (SEO, an option to move away from Disqus and keep past comments, to name a few), except there is a fatal flaw in this sync - it's done every 5 minutes only to new comments.
    This means edits, spamming, deletion, and other moderation is not replicated correctly - once a comment gets synced once, it's left in that state and never touched again.
    All of this left a really bad taste in my mouth, but I've accepted that it's how things will be for now after the Disqus team promised me talks of a proper sync process are already on the table.
    Due to bugs in WP, duplicate comments sometimes appear in the local db - I think it's related to poor wp-cron implementation in WordPress <3.4, which is documented here and this subsequent bug report I opened here.

In Disqus' defense, other comment systems aren't perfect either - for example, when I tried LiveFyre, I found it to be nicer in certain aspects but lacking severely in others, prompting me to go back to trying to implement Disqus.

Bonus - Sneak Peak At Disqus 2012

If you think the regular Disqus interface is nice, just wait till you see what they have in store for us for 2012. The new "Disqus 2012" interface, currently in limited beta, is much-much cleaner and nicer. Check it out:

What a refreshing look, isn't it? Notice comment downvoting in addition to upvoting, letting you bury the bad guys just like you do on Reddit. We also get easy comment sharing options, more profound Community and My Disqus tabs, and for moderators - more streamlined controls which require fewer clicks. I absolutely love it, but it is missing some core functionality right now due to being an early preview.

Disqus 2012 isn't something I can turn on for you - it's a client feature attached to your Disqus account. You can test drive it here, if your account is eligible. Let's just say I'm very excited and can't wait for it to be completed.

So, enjoy better, easier comments on AP, folks. In fact, why don't you take Disqus for a spin right now and leave a comment or two? Go on, we love to hear from you.

    I like Intense Debate :/

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Intense Debate lost a long time ago, like HD-DVD lost to Bluray. Sorry, ID was just not happening.

      • http://www.everyonedigital.com/ Ujjwal Kumar

        But I like it for its similarity to the default WP comments system. Its also lighter that Disqus BTW why didn't you consider Livefyre?

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

          I did consider it, but it was way underbaked and buggy, completely not ready for what I needed. Their team acknowledged it and gave a timeline measuring in many months, so I tried to push Disqus again and finally succeeded.

          • http://www.everyonedigital.com/ Ujjwal Kumar

            Yes I agree their team is really good and responsive. I did try Livefyre once but it failed to import the comments completely!
            I contacted their support. A support member asked for an account with admin rights and I don't know how but they fixed it. I think they exported the comments in the extended RSS format and deleted all comments then activated Livefyre and backed up all comments later. 

  • http://digg.com/users/OmegaWolf Silver Fang

    The site seems a bit faster with Disqus as opposed to the old commenting system.

    • Mikey H

       The old site took an age to load, no matter what interface I was using to access it. This is much much better.

    • Mikey_H

      The old site took an age to load, no matter what interface I was using to access it. This is much much better.

    • Mikey_H

      The old site took an age to load, no matter what interface I was using to access it. This is much much better.

    • Montygue

      It still takes a bit of loading for me. And the site regularly crashes shockwave on multiple computers.

      My 40+ tabs open at any one time has absolutely NOTHING to do with this issue though. :p

    • http://www.ringcentral.com/phone-system/index.html Phone System

       Yeah! Actually, I strongly believe using Disqus helps you moderate and filter comments easier and better

    • Wolfgang Rock

      Yes, i agree

  • ymirushn

    "intense debate" would be a good band name!

    • https://steamcommunity.com/id/m-p-3 m-p{3}

      Looks great and the integration is seamless even on the mobile website. And one less login to do on my phone to comment :)

      • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

        Ohh, forgot to mention how good mobile comments are - will add this now, thanks.

        • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

          Not that it's important to ANYBODY here, but last night while I was out with friends and doing a one-week test run with the Lumia 900 (windows phone), I discovered their browser (Internet Explorer) doesn't seem to be compatible.

          Like I said, nobody here cares, but I thought it an interesting observation.

  • http://www.kovdev.com/ koveleski

    I like Disqus so I'm all for this change.

  • CrowderSoup

    I love Disqus and use it on my own blog. It's a great system that has some bugs. The key is that they're always working towards improving it.

    • http://giannii.com/ Giannii

      Hi Crowd,

      What kind of bugs were you experiencing? Have you reached out to our support team? http://disqus.com/support

    • Talton

      Working towards improving is really at the core of what we do. We appreciate you noticing and as G said, if you have any questions, feel free to let us know.

      Side Note: Here's a screenshot of how real-time will work in Disqus 2012.
      http://bit.ly/HVyM76

      • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

        That's really nice, since right now all new replies are loaded in a flat manner unless you reload the page - then they fall into the right places.

        I hope in 2012 you can also keep a single button that would refresh all new replies in their right hierarchy without having to hunt them down or do what TheVerge does and show the new comments in their right places immediately, without having to press buttons - make sure there's a Pause button and you've got yourself a winner!

  • http://twitter.com/verb0ze verboze

    cool. I'm always for less passwords to monitor

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Well, to be fair, AP never had user accounts, so you there was never any passwords.

  • moelsen8

    I like disqus but every site that I've seen use it tends to have quite a large number of trolls. Take BGR (i know, its a habit ive been trying to break) for instance, before they scrapped it.. or even droid-life a good deal of the time anymore. Nature of the internet anymore I guess. It is nicer to use though. Good work AP.

    • http://giannii.com/ Giannii

      There's something in the next release of Disqus to help suppress the trolls and generally people posting undesirable content.

      • moelsen8

        that'll be a welcome feature.

      • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

        The next Disqus will just block all comments from anyone :P

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      BGR's solution was to go to Facebook comments, which I really dislike, so that wouldn't be happening. We'll deal with trolls using the moderator team.

      • moelsen8

        I don't like the Facebook route either. Good to hear you'll be on top of this kind of stuff.

      • http://www.ragtop.org/ Jeff

        Thanks for that. I refuse to use any site that requires you to interface with Facebook.

      • duplissi

        facebook comments?... ugh that would almost be enough to make me stop visiting here. thank god you went with disqus

  • derekross

    Great. Love Disqus!

  • http://pctonic.net/ Ashutosh Mishra

    This will certainly drive up the conversation. 

  • vs8

    Wo0t! I like it!

  • Todd

    I am a big fan of Disqus, and just so ecstatic that you didn't choose to go with Facebook integration like BGR.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      No way that would have flown here. If anything, we'd go with a Google comment system, if it's ever released.

      • cashd00d

        Google's 3rd party commenting system is coming very soon. Google it. :P

        • http://www.anivision.org/ Christopher Bailey (Xcom923)

          I figure whatever google does Disqus can integrate the main features. Besides unless it can link directly with posts on G+ I don't see what else google could do to improve the comment system

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

          Yeah, I know it's supposed to be coming, but we'll see what kind of beast it is when and if it comes. There are very many issues getting integration with existing comments right, and that's something Google will have to really knock out perfectly before we can consider them.

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

          @xcom923:disqus That would be one *huge* way already, worthy of considering it.

    • http://www.dailyplacebo.com/ jeadly

      Yeah, Facebook comment sections just get blocked for me, so sites with that essentially have no comments.

      • moelsen8

        Why does that happen? Been trying to figure this out for a little while now. Even when I'm logged into Facebook they're blocked.

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

          I'd guess your employer blocked Facebook.

  • Vivek Bhatia

    I am testing a comment. Feel free to ignore this. As opposed to my other comments that everyone pays so much attention to. Perhaps I should say your instead of you're. 

  • Sqube

    Having to register separately just for Android Police kept me from commenting on a lot of posts that I wanted to comment on.

    The switch to DISQUS pleases me inordinately.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      You never needed to register for anything - we didn't have a user account system. However, you did need to input your name and email, and this is one of the primary ways Disqus improves conversation rates.

  • Sqube

    Having to register separately just for Android Police kept me from commenting on a lot of posts that I wanted to comment on.

    The switch to DISQUS pleases me inordinately.

  • Bas

    I'm fine with the change. Prefer the old comment system though.

    • http://giannii.com/ Giannii

      What specifically did you prefer? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

      • Bas

        It did not require an account or a connection with a social network, and it looked better in some sort of way, I can't really describe. But Disqus is fine.

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

          Neither does Disqus - you can still use a name/email combination to comment if you want. Next argument :)

          • Bas

            o rly? Okay you guys win :P

    +1 for Disqus

  • Palmer Nyako

    Need more websites to use disqus. ex, kotaku, gamespot, ign and the verge.
    So much easier for me personally to reply to articles i find interesting.
    Also, easier to talk to the editors.
    hai artem ;)

    • http://thetylerhayes.com/ Tyler Hayes

      Actually IGN does use Disqus :)

      • Palmer Nyako

        it says powered by disqus but it doesn't auto log me in or let me log in.
        :/

        • http://thetylerhayes.com/ Tyler Hayes

          They've customized Disqus a bit; you need an IGN account to comment, but the comments themselves are still powered by Disqus.

          • Palmer Nyako

            Rofl they killed the purpose of Disqus being an omni user account for various sites.

          • http://techmansworld.blogspot.com/ MHazell

            I can use the beta embed to comment without having to log in with them. Please don't tell them

          • http://techmansworld.blogspot.com/ MHazell

             Actually, I can use my MHazell account now because I made an account with them, then connected it with my Disqus one. Now I comment as MHazell.

  • SoffMouf

    win!

  • New_Guy

    So glad you guys decided to switch...wasn't really feeling the old system =).

  • Jonathan Weltback

     Figuring this out now... hmm.

  • LazarusDark

    Not the biggest fan of Disqus(ting). But I can see from your perspective. The biggest benifit I see is that you are automatically logged in on various sites. This makes commenting easier and even I am more likely to comment on a Disqus site just because I'm already signed in. This will likely increase commenting for you. So for that I totally get it.

    Really I guess we should just all be thankful you avoided Facebook sign in. I deleted my fb and I am likly to never visit a sight again when I see it is facebook comments only.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      What are some reasons you dislike Disqus then?

      • LazarusDark

        largely the same concerns of the article.
        bugs, bugs, bugs. They never end. No software is free of bugs, but it seems like the same bugs never get fixed for years now.Paranoia. Who is Disqus? They are not beholden to me, and their business model concerns me. What are they doing with my information? I trust AP and Artem. I don't trust Disqus.
        According to Wikipedia "Aggregate information about registered users (sites visited, etc.) is sold to other corporations". Exactly what info? Given their pervasiveness, I am nearly as concerned about them as I am about Facebook.
        Of course, I could always not use them, but that would remove the social aspect of quite a few sites. Thus far I have not heard of any specific reasoning to be concerned, or I would have deleted my account as I did Facebook (I'm assuming Disqus lets you delete your account). But that could change at any moment.

    • http://www.anivision.org/ Christopher Bailey (Xcom923)

      I too would like to know, what's so bad about Disqus you seem to list positives.

  • http://www.androidradar.de/ Leif

    The best feature of disqus is to have one place (disqus dashboard) to follow your own comments and keep aware of new replies to them. This allows real discussions because without people just read an article, leave a comment and never check that specific page again. 

    I still like the way Google did it in Google+ much more but as long as they didn't released anything for blogs and website Disqus seems to be the best alternative.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Plus you can reply by email with Disqus notifications.

  • Seth

    I hope this fixes the 10 minutes load time on contest topics when trying to load from my phone, and the failed comment publishes when trying to post from it... also, looks nice. :-)

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      I think you should definitely see some improvements there.

  • http://www.dailyplacebo.com/ jeadly

    I'm in favor of it.

  • Jerry Lange

    Lol. I didn't even notice the change. I really like disqus. I just wish wish they had a app for android for regular users.

  • bjn714

    I love disqus, but I do have one issue with the comments here still...  Can you increase the maximum number of reply levels?  As with WP comments before, we are still limited to 4 levels of replies so we can't always reply to a comment.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      I did keep that limit on purpose so that posts don't get collapsed to a point where they're too narrow and very tall, but I'll consider upping that by a level or two.

      Edit: upped it by 1.

      • bjn714

        That is what I figured and I understand. 4 is just not always enough to reply properly. I do agree that a limit is nice as some of the sites can get pretty ridiculous when there is no limit.

  • Charles Clout

    With some sited dropping Disqus for the eternally poor Facebook comments, I'm glad to see AP adopt Disqus.

    Good move! :D

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Yeah, that was not happening.

      • http://techmansworld.blogspot.com/ MHazell

        I hate Facebook altogether. I couldn't care less about their comment embed.

  • Mark

    It drove me nuts. Comments disappeared from Androidpolice, I couldn't leave comments. Then I discovered the switch to Disqus which "Ghostery" a Firefox plugin to protect your privacy and tracking and such, blocks Disqus. I had to white list Disqus for AndroidPolice only. AlmondNet, AppNexus, BuySellAdds, DataSu, Google +1, Google Adsense, Google Analytics, Media6Degrees, Netshelter, Quantcast, ScoreCard Research Beacon, Twitter Button and WordPress stats are still being blocked on Androidpolice (Sorry)

  • CeluGeek

    Good that I don't have to go through another registration process, and have another username/password combo to manage.

    • http://techmansworld.blogspot.com/ MHazell

      Ever heard of OpenID?

  • raindog469

    Apart from the convenience of not having to log into every site, I like to see sites switch to Disqus because it means every comment has a "flag" button. Don't remember if you had one before, but most sites don't. Makes it easier to report spammers.

    And so glad you didn't go with Facebook commenting. I don't want my comments on blogs and news sites to show up in my Facebook feed. Ever. Those people who promote a brave new world where we have only one online identity that follows us everywhere, using our real names, are welcome to that nightmare. I'll pass.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Nope, never had a report button - definitely a plus.

      • http://techmansworld.blogspot.com/ MHazell

         Indeed.

  • d1m1m1

    If only TechCrunch would follow suit and realise that not everyone uses Facebook.

  • http://www.anivision.org/ Christopher Bailey (Xcom923)

    I love disqus so far. I want to add it to my site

  • Seth Goldstein

    Awesome

  • DrConan

    Yes, it's very nice not to have to log-in each time you want to comment on various sites. Engadget had switched a while back and then I noticed how many sites I might visit actually used it (very noticeable since my avatar would show up and I'm like "Whaaa? I've never visited... oh :)"

    One thing I would like, in addition to more reply levels, is for sites that have a fixed width, to have an option to have a variable width. Fixed width is nice for those using screens with lower resolution (like tablets using the desktop site, netbooks, etc.), but not necessarily for those with higher resolution displays. This would also make multiple reply levels easier to display (for example, see Techdirt). 

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Upped the reply depth by 1.

  • duplissi

    fascinating! how will we sign up for contests now?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      I can see everyone's emails associated with Disqus in our system, so you won't have to do anything differently.

  • http://twitter.com/crushjz Cesare Puliatti

    Finally! Great move! ;)

  • Andrew

    Congrats on the successful switch! 

  • http://www.anivision.org/ Christopher Bailey (Xcom923)

    you can mention on disqus?? O_O @archon810:disqus that's cool. (I promise I won't abuse it LOL)

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Yup, one of the coolest Disqus features.

  • http://resaberz.blogspot.com/ Rebornyama

    Am I the only one seeing the 2012 layout seems a little bit familiar. Hint: ICS. lol

  • Bleakvision

    Oh thank you so much!

  • Bleakvision

    I got another suggestion. What about moving "Android system update news for device X" to a seperate section of the site, or keeping them only very short on the main page, like Engadget does with their "alt" articles.
    It's been going a little bit overboard lately and real news takes longer to find. Most of us can only own so many Android products and each of those articles only concerns a fraction of the readers. Also most of the update news is negative or frustrating and gives reading the site a negative vibe. Like:"OMG what did they screw up this time?!" :)

  • John O’Connor

    PLEASE downvote this comment for testing purposes

    • Bleakvision

      How? I only got: Collapse thread, Link, flaf, like and reply.

      • John O’Connor

        I suppose we will have to wait for the upgrades to propogate. in that case feel free to like it enough times so that when we are able to downvote we can test it

    Love to hear your thoughts on the benefits and problems with LiveFyre. Thank you for this

  • Eka

    200 emails? That's borderline OCD. I feel sorry for the Disqus team.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      200 emails over the course of about a year and a half is a lot? Well, I wish they wouldn't have been necessary, but that's what it took to go live. I couldn't help that we were having integration issues.

  • Alvin B.

    Better than using Facebook, and not as annoying/spammy/siteoftheweekish as the one that some other android sites recently switched to, livefyre or something like that.

  • MicrosoftShill

    Discus are ignorant assholes.   I asked them why it didn't work with Opera Mobile, and they replied that they don't support Opera (the biggest and most popular Mobile browser).

    Idiots.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Ouch. I've opened up a ticket with them to figure out if it's on the list of things to be fixed for Disqus 2012.

  • http://moerder.blogspot.com Admin

    Welcome all !!!

  • Kaleb Tah Sandwich

    Disqus 2012 looks a little like Android 4 (or at least the contacts app in Android 4). And now I'm thinking that it would be awesome if the whole website's design was based off Android. Though I guess that would be a pain to figure out, and it'd need to be renewed for every interface change done.

  • yarrellray

    Nice change here..

  • http://profiles.google.com/stermi Emanuele Ricci

    Artem, what I like about the internal comment system is that the name and email are stored with the comment in my own DB.  Does Disqus sync the submitters email back to your db?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Yes, it does. Well, for the most part - people with Twitter logins are missing emails, for example.

  • xnifex

    Why won't it let you reply to certain comments? 

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Maybe because they reached their reply depth? Do you have an example?

      • xnifex

        My reply to you in the dropbox post about the "new" linking feature

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

          Yeah, you can't reply that many levels deep.

          • xnifex

             Ah ok. I guess that's to deter long threads, but kinda sucks.

            It's to prevent really narrow and tall posts, but Disqus 2012 that I'm testing right now has a perfect solution to that. You'll see when they launch.

     You can avoid wordpress-specific problems by just using the universal JavaScript code. It is a very simple code.

    I recently moved to Disqus also for similar reasons. Here is the comparison research I did before moving to Disqus: http://linuxplained.com/disqus-vs-livefyre-vs-facebook-comments/

    Disqus is still taking awhile to show the comments for me.

    google does Disqus can integrate the main features. Besides unless it
    can link directly with posts on G+ I don't see what else google could do
    to improve the comment system.I'd guess your employer blocked Facebook.

    Please downvote this comment for testing purposes. Thanks!

    Disqus refuses to allow deletion of an account. Just try it.

    Their help-site claims it's temporary, but a little googling shows this problem has gone on over 4 years. http://chibimagic.wordpress.com/2008/10/01/disqus-sucks/#comment-1353

    Obviously they think the refusal to allow account-deletion is "not a bug, it's a feature", but they are canny enough to know that admitting it outright is a bad idea... interesting.

    Anybody else wonder about this? I realize from the link above that Daniel is willing to *personally* delete an account if a user asks him *personally* to do so, but ...does it seem weird to anybody else that the only way to enact what would normally be considered a basic functionality is to email the company founder directly?

    I don't think I'm weird for finding this weird...

    There is a guy who does phone systems in Calgary and I'm pretty sure he's the best around. A couple of my friends have had work done by him.

    Thankyou for the good summary! We're very excited about moving toward a
    fuller release soon. If you enjoy using Disqus, I think you're going to
    like some of the stuff we're doing with the new platform.
