Comments now available on The Beagle

January 1st sees the first of The Beagle's New Years resolutions in place. For the past eight weeks since the Beagle launched on November 1st, 2016 it has been a bit one sided. Over 800 articles have already been published; media releases, publicity pieces, community promotions, book reviews, arts news, food reviews, opinion pieces, letters to the editor and commentary. While those on Facebook have been able to make comments of any articles shared on the Beagle Facebook page those without a social media account have been left out in the cold other than via a letter to the editor. The NEW comment section at the bottom of SELECTED posts has been added to encourage community discussion and to also provide an avenue for Council and Councillors to add perspective and clarity to the issues being discussed. HOWEVER to make comment to an article it is required that you must do so with a Log-in to one of your existing accounts such as email or Facebook or simply register with Disqus. This login will confirm your identity, and will hopefully prevent your name being used by another user. Most sites require verification to comment and to help prevent spamming. You can register and learn more here. Please note that comments are moderated before publishing and The Beagle editor's decision to publish or not, with or without editing to ensure your response meets publishing guidelines, will be final. And civility is required at all times as we all expect. The Disqus comment portal and opportunity for comment is being trialed. Feedback on any issues would be appreciated

NOTE: Comments were TRIALED - in the end it failed as humans will be humans and it turned into a pile of merde; only contributed to by just a handful who did little to add to the conversation of the issue at hand. Anyone who would like to contribute an opinion are encouraged to send in a Letter to the Editor where it might be considered for publication
