To paraphrase a 13-year old AOLer: M3 TO0 BFF WRDPR5S!!1!
Disqus really should be an option.
I’ll go a step further and say that my own domain is, for the first time in many years, in danger of actually becoming more useful than my WP.com blog: http://www.andrewcurrie.ca
This seems like a no-brainer to me… Wouldn’t opening up comments to Disqus drive more traffic to WP.com?
Throwing my hat in in favor of Disqus (or perhaps an implementation of similar, WP-native functionality). Threaded comments, video comments, FriendFeed integration, +1 spam resistance, unified commenter profiles and histories across the Web: all very good things, for bloggers and for readers alike. The addition of these features would elevate an already top-shelf service to stellar, and make WordPress.com, imho, the last word in hosted blogging.
I agree. wp+disqus would be nice.
I also agree. Disqus is becoming an essential feature. An absolute must have
Add me to the list of members that Disqus. Their version 2.0 works with WordPress self hosted blogs brilliantly. Please bring it to WP.com users!
Add me to the list. I want Disqus on wp.com too!
It’s probably going to be difficult to implement, but if WP.com does this I will love them for life.
@krysjez, I’m not sure why you think it would be difficult to implement Disqus here. There is a Disqus plugin for WordPress.
It can see reasons why Automattic might be reluctant to implement Disqus here. For example, Disqus does its own spam fighting, whereas Automattic use Akismet here.
Now, would it be difficult for Disqus to allow the use an external spamfighting service? I wonder…
Turns out that Disqus delegates its spam fighting to Akismet:
Your comment refers to something totally different.DISQUS, does way more
than just keeping track of comments…
Count me as a yes for for Disque, :)
DISQUS or not but the comments system at WP can certainly use modern day improvements. As far as the blog I’m running is concerned, I have 250 plus comments on the About page, I could certainly use a way to only show the latest and the last few, so people don’t have to load the whole page every time. This feature should be commonly available (along with many others like check box to email the replies), but apparently it isn’t available here yet.
Using it for my tumblr, it’s nice stuff.
Hopefully it could be made into a plugin or something.
Please add DISQUS capability. Many of us are porting over from other platforms that allow this implementation. Thanks!
I doubt this is going to happen after Automattic, the company behind WordPress, recently acquired Intense Debate.
