Do You Support MakeUseOf Switching Its Comment Interface From Disqus To WordPress? [MakeUseOf Poll]

In last week’s poll we asked you whether you will rush out to buy the new iPad 3. The poll included 5 options, and surprisingly enough, the 416 votes were divided almost equally between these five options. But which option was the most popular one?

Out of 416 readers who voted, 17% want the iPad 3 but already own an older tablet, another 17% think tablets are useless altogether, 18.5% will definitely rush out to get the iPad 3, 21% plan on buying it but not right away, and the most popular option was chosen by 26.5% of the voters, who are sticking with their current tablet for now.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

So in general, MakeUseOf readers seem to not have a sweeping opinion of the iPad 3. The small majority, however, are sticking to their current tablets. Could this be due to the fact that no one really knows for sure what the iPad 3 will be all about? I’m definitely waiting to see if it’s actually all that special. We’ll find out in just a couple of days!

This week’s poll question is: Do You Support MakeUseOf Switching Its Comment Interface From Disqus To WordPress?

This week’s poll is a bit different than usual. Instead of asking for your opinion on software or hardware, we’re looking for our readers’ opinion regarding MakeUseOf’s own commenting system. MakeUseOf has been using Disqus for comments for quite a long time. Disqus is a very powerful and popular platform with lots of great features, but it does have a few technical downsides. As a result, we are considering switching our commenting platform to WordPress’s built-in one. Since comments are our best way of communicating with you, our loyal readers, we want to hear your opinion about such a switch. The more answers we get, the better we know what you want, so don’t hesitate to vote!

If you voted for option 3, which platform would you rather see us use? Is there a reason you like or dislike Disqus as a commenting platform? We’d love to hear all your thoughts in the comments.

    Common! The like system on disqus was nice. Also it kept me logged in all sites and blogs using Disqus. I did not have to enter my name and email id everytime. I could use any of my facebook or google or other accounts. Why did you have to switch?

    On the commentor side, Disqus is fine. I haven’t had a user problem with it, and actually signed up for its service in order to comment on this site.

      It’s good to know it hasn’t been giving the users any trouble. We to have you sign up to a different service if we switch. :)

  • Phil Fot

    Disqus is my favorite commenting system.

    • Yaara

      What do you like about it? I also think there are many good sides to it.

  • Justin Winokur

    From a user standpoint, I don’t really care. If I have to create an additional login to comment, then so be it. It is about 3 minutes at most of my time and then I will probably be agnostic to the comment system
