A couple weeks ago we kicked off a new, regular series on our Community Blog called Commenter Spotlight. At Disqus, we talk a lot about the importance and value of community. But what is the keystone of community? People. Brilliant, funny, interesting people are what keep us going back time and again to our favorite communities. The Commenter Spotlight series is an effort to highlight some of the best of those people, the ones that provide the underpinnings of successful communities across the Disqus network.
Each spotlight features a 5-question profile, a custom illustration, and a fun, little section called “Up-vote or Down-vote?” Our first profile featured Hooded Justice, a frequent commenter on The Dissolve. Our second profile, published today, features NightOwl, a familiar face from xoJane. So head over to our Community Blog and check them out!
If you know commenters from your own communities that you think deserve to be featured, we encourage you to submit their names! The best way to do this is by emailing us at email@example.com, or tweet us at @disqusfaves. (See this blog post for a little more information on our new “Favorites” endeavor.)
What do you think about this new series? And don’t you all just want to hang NightOwl’s illustration in your hallway?
