Disqus down outage makes internet unhappy

By Alan Ng - Feb 7, 2014

Having a healthy comment section is important to internet users, and it appears that one of the most popular services Disqus is down at the moment, or not working as effectively as it normally should. Confirmation on the Disqus server status has been verified too, with a brief Disqus outage displayed on the server checker.

As far as we’re aware, Disqus is working sporadically but more often than not – Disqus comments are not loading. This is obviously frustrating for us since we use the service, but more frustrating for the rest of you who cannot get your opinions across in a timely manner.

A quick check on the official Disqus status checker confirms that there is a problem with the service. Here is the outage status at the moment according to Disqus:


As expected, some of you are not happy about being able to comment on your favorite websites online that also use Disqus as their primary method of commenting.

Here’s what you have been saying about the outage today:

Hopefully we’ll see the status change as soon as possible so everyone can resume their usual duties. Be sure to keep an eye on the official checker above.

Have you been having problems trying to comment on Disqus today?

    Patience people, patience. Disqus provides a great service, they’ve attempted to enhance the program and it’s obviously creating some issues which I’m sure they’re working around the clock to repair. They’ll get it up and running. Do something else for a bit, then come back and try it again.

    Seems they’ve had lots of problems since implementing the new header.

          Other sites don’t work yet. Never thought about how huge Disqus has become and the repercussions of it going down. Cheers.
