Changes are afoot at nvdaily.com
By Linda Ash
Those of you who visit and post comments on our website will start to notice some changes at the bottom of stories at nvdaily.com.
For the past four years, we have required online readers to register through our online publishing system in order to comment on stories. This system required users to provide us their email addresses, and we authenticated their registration by email.
We are in the process of closing our online registration system and replacing it with Facebook's comments social plugin.
This means that those of you who visit nvdaily.com and are already logged into your Facebook account will be able to easily post comments on our stories and share your comments on your Facebook page. If you are not logged in, you will be asked for your Facebook username in the comments area of a story, or, if you do not have a Facebook account, you will be able to post comments on our site as long as you have one of these accounts: aol, yahoo and hotmail.
I encourage you to go online and check out the new comments area below each story. On the News and Opinion sections, both the old and new comments sections will be available this weekend. We will be closing down the old commenting section on those sections on Monday.
Letters to the Editor
This is an important note to those of you who send in letters to the editor for this page. We welcome your letters, but you have to provide us with your name, address and phone number - especially that phone number. We will not accept letters that do not have this information. We call and verify each letter. If you do not include a phone number, your letter will not be published.
And speaking of letters, I encourage you to upload your letters and news events and photos to our online Virtual Newsroom at nvdaily.com/virtual.
