Do I have to sign up to leave a comment?
While there are many benefits to creating an account with My Voice Nation, not every commenter or community prefers a sign-up process in order to grow the conversation. That's why we've introduced Guest Commenting. My Voice Nation communities now have the option to create an account or to simply enter a display name, an e-mail address, and an optional URL to join in on the conversation.
How to comment as a guest through My Voice Nation:
Open any My Voice Nation-enabled blog post and locate the comment widget
Click "Sign in or Post as Guest"
Enter a display name, your e-mail address, a URL of your choice (optional), and then click "Next"
Click "Skip" to complete the guest sign-in process
How do I follow/unfollow a conversation?
You can follow any Livefyre conversation, and just as easily unfollow it, with a click of a button. Following a Livefyre conversation allows you to receive updates on all the discussion taking place on that particular blog post or article.

Can I edit my comment after posting it?
At this time, we do not allow the editing of comments, since this would change the context of the comment which affects the overall quality of conversation.
