Help Us Tweak Our New System
250News is moving to a new operating system and would like some feedback from you before the switch is complete.
The site will actually look the same, but will include a new feature as 250News starts a subscription to Canadian Press to bring you the latest stories from across the Province, Canada and around the world.
Also new to this system is the ability for the editor to edit comments. This should remove the need to delete an entire comment because of issues of legality, bullying or good taste.
What will be new is that the very first time you comment, your comment won’t appear automatically as it will have to be approved by the editor before it appears. This will only apply for the very first time you comment on the site.
So here is the link to our “test site”. We encourage you to visit it, explore it, and let us know about any issues you may discover. You will not need to re-register, as all registered users have already been added to the new site.
Send your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you.
