Really?? I thought youtube still uses Flash. I'm no fan of youtube, but
it *is* a significant data point, considering that some people are
actually making a living off homemade videos posted on youtube.

Yeah what about plain old HTML submit forms? One can always spice it up
with JS to replace the HTTP POST with the newfangled AJAX stuff, for
when the user has JS turned off. (It'd be hard to justify the additional
effort, though, unless Nick volunteers to write the code. ;-P)

Almost all YouTube videos are HTML5-ready.

It is not obvious where to find the new wiki entering dlang.org.
There is no link to it from dlang.org in the menu under community
and the comments link at the bottom of each page leads to the old
wiki.

In my opinion, it should be given a chance with the intended
integration in place before drawing any conclusions.

So, livefyre then? ;) Agree with Nick and Vladimir fwiw, Disqus 
and its competition are beneath dlang.  Always funny to see the 
cycle with these free commenting widgets: they raise millions 
from dumb VCs, never bother to make any money, start furiously 
selling user data 
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disqus#Criticism_and_privacy_concerns), 
then go bust as everybody leaves.  Well, I guess that's every 
dot.com nowadays, Facebook and Google 
(http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324731304578193781852024980.html) 
are on step 3 atm.
