Where can I find my total number of positive votes?While they currently aren't available within your profile modal, they can be viewed in the hovercard accessed by hovering your mouse over your avatar next to a comment you've made.
Why would I want to follow another user?
Many comments posted through Disqus are hilarious, insightful, or just fascinating to read. Following other users keeps you up-to-date with the latest news that's relevant to you. After you choose to follow someone, his or her activity will show up in your My Disqus tab, Daily Digest Email and Dashboard activity stream (use the “Context” button to get the full conversation).
Following users is a great way to discover new communities that you never knew existed. Everyone has different interests so following some of your favorite commenters can be a great way to find new and interesting communities.
Where can I find interesting people to follow?
To get you started, we've curated a list of some of our favorite community members from all across the web. Visit our suggested follower page and follow a couple of users or connect your Facebook account to find friends that are already using Disqus.
Can I hide my profile from being shown?
As Disqus is a networked platform, both user profiles and the comments they contain are always public in Disqus. While a site itself may be not publicly-accessible, for example, comments do still appear in user profiles.
Disqus does not currently offer a privacy mode or any similar functionality for user profiles, comments, or sites.
