Bill Macfadyen: The Last Word on Comments

Noozhawk's new story comments format is ready for you to talk back

Thank you for your patience with our slow-rolling implementation of Noozhawk’s new policy for story comments. The transfer is complete, the freshly installed format appears to be working throughout the site, and all comments seem to have migrated without incident. We apologize for the inconvenience during the switch.

Thank you, too, for participating with us as we strive to improve the Noozhawk Web site, our professional news reporting and your community coverage. We know that requiring registration to comment isn’t universally popular but we are grateful to the several hundred people who already have enrolled.

We also are obliged for the numerous, persuasive appeals to keep the comments with the articles. We thought a second page was a good idea; we were wrong.

Thanks again.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
