Improved story commenting begins today at NWHerald.com

NWHerald.com has introduced improvements to story commenting on the website.

The new features allow story-commenters to respond directly to a comment in a thread and allow for better self-policing of the comments section.

Users can flag comments as offensive, off-topic or as spam. If a comment is flagged enough times, it becomes hidden to users and subject to review. Commenters also can “like” a comment similar to “liking” a post on Facebook.

NWHerald.com’s rules for posting have not changed. Repeat offenders are subject to expulsion. However, comments are no longer restricted to 48 hours after a story publishes.

Readers need to register and create a profile with Livefyre to participate in story commenting. Livefyre does offer the opportunity to register and create a profile with an existing social media account, such as Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.

This registration is different than any registration you might already have done through NWHerald.com.

You do not need to register to view comments.
