big question mark

What should we use as a new comment system for the PPrize web site?

October 20, 2016

The Livefyre comment system we have been using here at PPrize is coming to an end. LiveFyre was recently purchased by Adobe this year, and they decided to abandon Livefyre on February 1, 2017. This is not the end of our PPrize prediction comments. It just means that we have to find an alternative comment system. So we have begun a search for a system with a target implementation date of January 1, 2017.

Comment systems are complicated. They have to be easy to use and to moderate, and must block spammers without putting up too many roadblocks for real people trying to post real honest comments. And although replacing LiveFyre will be difficult, we like to think of it as an opportunity to bring in something better. So as we begin searching for a replacement, we would like to hear your comments about what you liked or did not like about the LiveFyre comment system, and what you would like to see in the next comment system.
