Hi there,

We see that your email was deleted in the disqus-dev google group. Can we still assist you with this request?

If needed, we can go ahead and enabled guest upvoting for your site. Just let us know your forum shortname.

Dear Disqus developers.

I am a moderator for a website using disqus. We would rather keep the up-voting system as it was before, letting users up-vote anonymously / without being logged in. 
The reason for this, is that up-votes are an important way for our commenters to see that their comments and suggestions are being appreciated by other users, but so much activity has disappeared after our readers were supposed to log in to disqus before they can show their appreciation. The number of up-votes have drastically declined after this change. 

Would it be possible to allow this as a site-specific setting? I.e that the moderators/owners of each site could decide whether anonymous up-voting should be allowed.
We would certainly appreciate if we could decide for our selves whether we want this to be possible or not on our site. 

Brg, KLM27
