THE END OF FREE DISQUS CHANNELS IS HERE

WELL IT WAS FUN WHILE IT LASTED BUT MANY OF US PREDICTED THIS DAY WAS COMING OVER A YEAR AGO…..AND NOW IT SEEMS THAT DAY IS COMING

As many are aware, the Disqus Channels ecosystem has changed shape from the time of its conception.

Over this time, we’ve seen an increasing number of Terms Of Service violations in the channel sphere, which has required increasing resources from the Customer Support team. Due to the volume and nature of the Terms of Service violations present in the Channels system, we have ultimately decided to remove Channels from Disqus entirely.

As we understand that many of you developed some real bonds within channels, we are giving this notice one month before we take all Channels offline.

Existing Channel content will not be exportable. Users wishing to continue the experience they had on Disqus channels are encouraged to do so in the context of a full website. New Disqus sites may be registered here and can be installed to a variety of platforms .

All channels aside from Discuss Disqus will be deactivated on 9/1. Please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any questions regarding this change, and we thank you for your understanding.
