Where can I find my total number of positive votes?The upvote count is displayed for each user directly in the profile bio. Total number of upvotes can also be seen by hovering your mouse over an avatar next to any comment.
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 Home feeds and Daily Digest Email.
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, head over to Home and follow some users that are already using Disqus. You can follow other Disqus users the way you normally would from the discussion or on someone's profile, but we've also added some new ways to follow people.
If someone starts following you, or they reply to one of your comments, the you can follow them from within your notification feed by clicking the follow button next to their name.
You can also follow a user from the Interesting Commenters section in the sidebar of the homepage.
Can I hide my profile activity from being shown?
Yes! You can make your profile activity private which will also disable following for your account. Your avatar and display name will still be public. While you can make your profile activity private, your comments will still be public in the original discussion thread, and may show up in search engines, for example.
