Last month, we launched a major redesign of our website. The fonts were clean, stories easy to find, the design elegant – but a bunch of important features were missing. Most importantly, readers were no longer able to comment on stories, and finding articles older than a month was nearly impossible.
I want to announce that we’ve made significant progress in this area. As of now, readers can comment on any story, and those comments will show up immediately. The catch, of course, is that you have to register, which you can do by clicking here.
I believe this will encourage a freer exchange of ideas, as the discussion will be moderated by the larger community, not just the newspaper staff.
