Description from store UPDATE: More than five years later, Disqus has decided to bring back exposure of downvotes. (https://blog.disqus.com/bringing-back-downvotes) This extension is now obsolete. But... who knows how things will change again, eh? --- ORIGINAL: Less than a month ago, Disqus has decided to hide the downvote counters of its comments. Less than a day ago, I have learned that the number of downvotes is still kept in a classname property. This extension simply displays that information. However, unlike upvotes, the classname does not seem to be updated automatically. It is possible that this extension may not work in time, without any alternatives. Hopefully, this will become obsolete. March 12th, 2014 Seoul

Latest reviews

  • (2021-04-01) SheGoth: After all these years, this extension still works and developers actually update it, a habit that many others fail to do on their extensions across the Chrome store. 2021 and still going strong!
  • (2020-01-14) Nick Byte: Funktioniert nicht
  • (2020-01-09) Sir Henry: Working perfectly.
  • (2019-10-03) Karsh: RIP in pieces
  • (2019-10-02) Gopinath M S: Looks like they re enabled the downvotes to be visible
  • (2019-06-21) John Pisello: Works great for me. I've been using it for years and never had a problem with it. I don't know why some people have reported that it doesn't work for them. Install with confidence!
  • (2018-01-10) Berni S.: Funktioniert Null
  • (2017-09-21) Artem Russakovskii: One of the best extensions ever!
  • (2017-04-27) Just works
  • (2017-04-04) L Smith: Works for me! You do have to refresh the page after you downvote to see it. Others downvotes are also visible.
  • (2017-01-21) Dice No More: It works!
  • (2017-01-06) Mlok Karel: Works perfectly.
  • (2016-10-29) For the most part this doesn't work but I appreciate the effort made by the author. I hope a competitor comes along that has downvotes and eats Disqus and Facebook for lunch. To BlueNinja, you may have missed where I said "For the most part it doesn't work". Regardless since almost no one bothers downvoting because its not visible unless someone knows about this obscure Chrome extension. No way to do this with Firefox or Edge or IE.
  • (2016-10-15) Daniel Makes Cadences: This is really useful for us chat mods. We don't need to read the content of a message just to know that it's bad. It's really useful
  • (2016-09-10) It works.
  • (2016-07-18) Mergo The Cat: Assholes are now exposed, lol.
  • (2016-06-16) Adrian Piergallini: It doesn't work. Every single downvote button still is grayed out on every article I've looked at to test this, so either the internet is a lot more civil than I realize, or this isn't showing the downvote counts.
  • (2016-05-03) Zsolt Vasvari: Works great.
  • (2016-03-25) Ananya Gupta: Undoes what the coward Disqus does not want to show.
  • (2016-02-09) Luqman Al-Hakeem T: This extension still works as today (9 Feb 2016).... thank you!
  • (2015-10-09) Daniele Baroncini: Funziona, grazie !
  • (2015-05-22) Philip Lishman: Very useful! Can't think why they got rid of the downvotes display - it makes life more interesting!
  • (2015-04-30) Hossein Ra: now i know how much i'm hateful
  • (2015-04-13) Dafa Faris Muhammad: Installed to say "thanks". Didn't realize that you can actually see the total of down-votes using Inspect Element.
  • (2015-03-12) Javon Walker: Every disqus user should have this.
  • (2015-01-31) Ray Marquez: Hoping to spread the word around. Finally show people when they're being terrible.
  • (2014-10-05) Mary Wilbur: This is a convenient way to express disapproval of psycho type hate speech, without having to write a reply.

  • (2019-10-13, v:1.0) Ali Sedaghatpour: Not needed anymore?
    Is this extension not needed anymore since Disqus has brought back downvote counts? See: https://blog.disqus.com/bringing-back-downvotes
  • (2018-03-10, v:1.0) VPG001: "span role=" is no longer viewable
    I can't get the downvotes to show... Plus, it is no longer visible in the console...
  • (2017-07-19, v:1.0) Christopher Stapleton: Disqus Exposer
    How Do I See This Extension Working? Is there a visual viewer or something.. I don't get how it works, or how one is able to see Disqus downvote exposer.
  • (2017-05-09, v:1.0) Skyline Plaza FC VA US: no longer works 2017-05-08
    downvotes only show [ 1 ] regardless of knowing there were more than [ 1 ]
  • (2017-01-26, v:1.0) Interferes with notifications
    It interferes with the notifications, unread comments, votes remain unread no matter how many times I refresh or open the notifications in another tab. Disabling Downvote Exposer fix it.
  • (2017-01-26, v:1.0) Still functioning?
    Hasn't been updated since 2014... Does it still work? Any problems? Bugs?
  • (2016-08-08, v:1.0) Bernhard Ramanujan: Back in Days!
    Hahahaha! I was one of the first If not first to try this when you released it on IGN. ! Man can you make the firefox version?
  • (2016-02-28, v:1.0) Mobile?
    Is there anyway to get this functionality on Chrome for Android as well? Thanks for this great extension!
  • (2015-09-24, v:1.0) Display downvoting users on mouseover
    The Disqus API lets you see the users that downvoted a post. You literally just need to change "vote=1" to "vote=-1" (vote=1 is the default, but I believe it is included explicitly in the current Disqus code). You can probably import the mouseover function from the upvote button as a prototype, but I'm not quite familiar enough with javascript to identify that function yet.
  • (2015-04-13, v:1.0) QuoteThaChannel: hai
