Readers now can offer comments on News-Times stories online, but registration is required.
New users of The News-Times site will need to register with a user name and password before commenting on stories.
Registered users of The Augusta Chronicle will not need to create a new user name and password, but can sign in to The News-Times using their existing user name and password.
However, users will receive an error message if they attempt to register on The News-Times site by using an existing Chronicle user name. Rather than registering, those users should simply sign in using their existing information.
In addition to posting comments on individual stories on The News-Times, readers also are encouraged to send letters to the editor for publication either using the Web site's comment form, or by sending an email to email@example.com.
Letters are subject to space constraints and require writers to provide their name and city, which are published, and a daytime telephone number for verification purposes, which will not be published.
For any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
