  3. Get rid of the autoplaying videos ASAP.

    I was looking up iPad mini reviews. I found what looked like a good review on your site, but within seconds of the page loading, it started playing a video. I left, and I won't be back.

    I don't understand why you have them. People hate these things, without exception. They're obnoxious. They can be embarrassing if you're in a room with other people. They're a really disrespectful thing to have on your site. Please get rid of these things.

  5. Pop up video impedes edge of text

    I'm on this article (https://www.engadget.com/2019/05/26/amds-third-gen-ryzen-9-cpu-is-a-12-core-powerhouse-for-499/) but the video that pops up when I scroll down kind of covers a letter or two at the ragged right edge of the text. Maybe you should fix that. It looks like a mistake and is so distracting to me I stopped to write this to you instead of taking in your content. Bummer.

    Hey. DO NOT send me spam to my e-mail address or I will report it as such. I ******* hate that stuff.

  6. Ads seem to be affecting page performance lately. I am getting 10+ seconds of load time before I am able to start scrolling to read.

    I understand that ads pay the bills, but please ensure that they don't interfere with performance and basic usability.

  7. Date articles

    Put the date of every article below its headline. I can't tell by looking if I'm reading something that is 1 day or 1 year old.

  9. Social Media buttons at bottom of mobile pages too easy to select.

    The buttons stuck to the bottom of mobile webpages will trigger even if your finger starts on it but swipes up. This causes those sites to repeatedly load and interrupt the content on your site. Please remove them completely, or at the very least fix their behavior to avoid accidental touches from opening the sites.

  11. redirecting to guce.advertising.com when I try to read a story

    I look at this site while at work, and I guce.advertising.com is blocked. For example: https://guce.advertising.com/collectIdentifiers?sessionId=1cc-session02230267-8175-4929-be85-01131bd282a8

    You used to do this when going to the home page, but removed it, now its on every story...

  12. Stop pausing videos when browser tab is not active

    I often want to listen to the video articles on engadget without having the specific browser tab open, while I work.
    For some unknown reason, you guys don't seem to have this optional. I really don't understand why and it's causing me to engage less on your site.

  13. Please make The Morning After emails full screen

    I love getting The Morning After email each day but unlike every other email I get it is not “full screen”. It would be super if the email was expanded to fill the screen side to side. Again, all other emails I get from companies full the screen, just not yours. Thank you for your consideration and for all the hard work you do. We love Engadget.

  14. Please Fix Engadget login problem.

    When I visit your site and login to comment on an article, I cannot see the contents of your site on a future day without the browser automatically taking me to Engadget's login page first. No matter what page I visit, the site will not let me read any articles unless I log in. It only behaves this way after I have logged in once. I must use incognito mode to login if I want to comment so as to avoid that problem when I revisit the site. Please fix.

  15. Make it work without javascript again

    I used to browse and read the site on mobile (2017 iPad 9.7'') just fine with javascript disabled in safari, but this no longer works. Like no doubt many of your readers, I prefer to keep javascript disabled in my browsers for security (and battery life). This used to work fine until about a week ago, and now the pages just load blank without js enabled.

  18. You might want to remove the Google+ button from the footer...

    You might want to remove the Google+ button from the footer, as it now leads to a page saying that Google+ is no longer available.

  19. Provide a link for customer feedback on CONTENT

    I see this isnt the place for content feedback--you should provide a link for that here. Assuming you want feedback, that is. (I suspect you dont)

  20. Shouldn't there be a contact us? How do we tell you an article written by Jon Fingas has a factual error?

    Article by Jon Fingas about Google Voice and Google Fi has a factual error. How do we point this out if articles can't have comments or we can't contact you or Jon Fingas?
