Please bring Disqus back.
As you all know, Engadget switched from Disqus to livefyre a few years ago. Since then Disqus has gone though drastic changes and is far better compared to livefyre. Personally, i think livefyre is terrible for many reasons. It's slow, buggy and is absolutely terrible for discussions because of the structure. Almost every other tech blog uses Disqus for a reason. I think it's time Engadget switched back to disqus. As loyal readers/participants of this site, I think we deserve a better commenting...

LiveFyre errors
Nice.. clicked save and my wall of text disappeared.

The Summary:

The Livefyre views are inconsistent. Comments that are visible in one view are not visible in another. It is a mess. any fix?

Also, forum participation seems to be broken in IE again...

Have you tried using a standing desk? If so, did it convert you or did fall back into your chair?
Our wonderful, and funny, Daniel Cooper shared (http://www.engadget.com/2014/08/18/irl-homemade-s... his experiences with using a standing desk for work. I currently don't have one at home myself, but when I was visiting our San Francisco office I had the pleasure of using one. I only had the opportunity of using it for two days, but I have to say I agree with Dan on this... Read more →

Bug with new site layout
I found two issues with the new site layout. One is a bug and the other is an annoyance. The bug being if I have my browser not full screen and then full screen it the comment section loads twice. It happens in multiple articles using firefox and chrome. That also causes anything written in the comment text box to be erased.
The second issue is I have my browser half screen width on my 1920x1080 monitor and the comment box and all the comments are cut off a tiny bit. On the old site this issue... Read more →

Is the site futureproof?
Will the layout adapt to higher resolution displays?

For example, on a 4K display, the central column where all the content is very narrow, and the rest is just wasted white space. It would be nice if it keeps its ratio with the resolution.

New Layout
Very recently (I think I would have noticed if this had been happening for more than about 24 hours) it seems you have done a redesign which I don't think is very user-friendly. When viewing a single article (not the homepage where all the articles are listed one after the other) it used to be that the page was dedicated to that article, and when you scrolled to the bottom the comments would be there, after the recommended reading links. Now, when I view a single article, if I scroll to the... Read more →

Cannot view comments on PC
I'm using an up to date installation of Chrome, and all the posts come across as showing zero comments. They were there for months, and then one day disappeared. Oddly enough, if I open up an incognito window, the comments are there again.

In IE, it will also show that there are zero comments, but they are there if I click the link to view them.

There is a bug with the display of the adverts
Sometimes the adverts will cover up some text:

Writing a product review
So, basically I bought an Acer Aspire S7-392 and I was looking at all the reviews on the internet and it seems like absolutely nobody talks about how bad the design of the power cable is. So I was going to write a review and well, every time I press the "Write a review" button on the webpage, literally nothing happens. Have tried it in Chrome, Incognito Chrome, and in Internet Explorer. Also have tried going to just the "Write a review" webpage located here, http://www.engadget.com/post/#review,... Read more →
