Our new commenting system is up and running! It should make the whole experience easier and more rich. It’ll enable you to use your social media handles and share your comments with friends. And it’ll encourage everyone to engage responsibly and respectfully.

If we’ve done our job right, everything should look pretty much the same, with a few small exceptions.

Your old comments will still be here, but your old Disqus login will no longer work; instead, just use your Facebook or Twitter profile to let us know who you are when you comment. You can also share what you post here on Colorlines.com with your Facebook and Twitter friends, and you can easily follow replies to conversations you’re participating in. We’ve also got a few new ideas in the works to roll out in the coming weeks. As community manager, I’m excited to see how our already-excellent conversations get even better with the new system.

So, please do dig in and make yourself heard! Ask questions, get into (friendly and productive) debates, and let the Colorlines.com community benefit from your professional expertise and life experiences. You can do it right here on the site, or join the folks hashing it out around our Facebook page and Twitter account. (And don’t miss our regular Reader Forum posts, where we feature a few of your best comments each week.)

Finally, if you see something that’s not working like it should, or if you have a question in general, or if you just want to tell us how talented and handsome we all are, shoot us an email at community@colorlines.com.

Thanks for joining us! We wouldn’t be here without you.
