This is driving me crazy, I have my XDA account "Jerber" (this account) with my avatar and everything; is the account that I use everyday for comment arround XDA sections.

On the other hand I have a Disqus account that I use for comment in diferent websites, It has nothing to do with my XDA account.

And finally (here come the mess), when I go to the main XDA Developers website (to news like this there is a opened profile called "Jerber" with my old avatar ready for do comments and seems that it works like a Disqus account... as you can see I did a coment and it shows that was made with that "Jerber" profile...
If I go inside of that profile ( ) it looks/works like Disqus, but when I want to edit the account it sends me to my Disqus account...

For that reason I am not able to edit the avatar or go inside of that "profile" to try to understand how it works...or at least edit it
Any idea for help me?
The profile is there, opened in the XDA new section, I can use it, logout and login (With XDA login), comment, edit and delete but that is all, if I want to do some changes the profile sends me to other place...

Bumping this oldie. I have the same issue. Disqus is bonded to XDA and there is no way to leave reactions on XDA articles without an XDA account. There is no way of logging in to disqus with an xda profile, it just makes a new account with the same XDA email/google account, thus having 2 seperate accounts with the "same" login information, but different profile urls.

I have to agree. Doing it this way can break notifications completely when the user name is the same for xda as well as disqus

Bumping this thread. Just discovered that in order to comment with my regular Disqus account in the XDA Disqus comment section, I first have to log out of XDA and be logged in to Disqus! This is a pointless complication! Please get rid of it or make it optional XDA.

Same issue here. I created an account on Disqus using my same username for Pocketnow recently acquired by XDA, but the accounts aren't merged. Nor does there seem to be a way to merge them. I tried looking in Disqus' help pages, but there's nothing about merging accounts for common users! It's all about adding Disqus to your site. If no way is found soon, I'm deleting my Disqus account.

It seems to me that the Disqus plugin works separate from the actual Disqus site itself. Weird. While it's good that they're not collecting data that you didn't give them, they should allow a synchronization method.

There is a long explanation for this. When Disqus originally allowed Single Sign On we had a paid plan to allow this. Disqus then switched all of these paid plans to a free plan. We always had issues with it, for example if you update your avatar, there is no way to notify Disqus about the new avatar. Now, Disqus only allows single sign on for their "Enterprise" accounts, which is very expensive. We are sort of stuck in no-mans land, where is it enabled on our account but with no support.

My hope is to eventually integrate portal comments with forum membership. That way, accounts or unified.

Wish I had a better explanation or fix for you!
