The Mayans were wrong about the world ending, but a wave of change is sweeping over the world of Light Reading. Our parent company moved our site to a new content management system, the first such move in 12 years. This means we now share a content management system and user-profile platform with our UBM-owned sister publications, like InformationWeek. You should still be able to log in to your Light Reading account. Be sure to use your email address rather than your user name to do so. If you can't get in, if you're experiencing any other issues, please do drop us a line. We're at editors@lightreading.com. In the transition we had to give up Light Reading's user rankings and ratings, meaning, yes, your bananas are gone. They were getting brown spots, anyway. Again, we expect that your Light Reading user ID and preferences are still intact -- and your login should now work on Information Week as well. If you find that's not the case, please let us know. — The Staff, Light Reading

We've also improved things by apparently eliminating those annoying "someone has replied to your comment" emails. Just doing our part to cut down on arguments and general trash talk.

Also a question: If you already have a Disqus account, and you use it with the same browser-áyou use to view Light Reading, does that matter?

Edit: It does not appear appear to matter, as I just posted a comment on another site using a different Disqus login

Edit: It sort of works, but I can't update my profile with the same username and password I used to write this message. I have an account because I wrote this message (and posted it), but the system doesn't recognize this account. Or something.
