Posting Events And Comments
TO SUBMIT AN EVENT
We have a self-service calendar where you can post any local event.
To use it, you must have a previous (non-Facebook) commenting account or register for a new account by clicking the “registered” at the top left corner of the calendar’s home page.
Fill out the form, including a screen name, password and valid e-mail address. THIS IS SEPARATE AND APART FROM YOUR FACEBOOK SIGN IN. The calendar requires a different registration than story comments.
Once the form is submitted, we’ll approve it. You’ll receive a confirmation e-mail.
At that point, go to the calendar on the upper right of the home page, click view full calendar. Follow the directions to add an event.
COMMENTING ON STORIES
It was a question asked over and over again before we launched.
“Are you going to allow anonymous comments? Are you going to allow to people to say whatever they want?”
Here is the answer:
The Valley Independent Sentinel welcomes your comments and thoughts on stories.
You know more about the Valley than we do.
It’s your community—and we hope you feel this is your Web site.
However, the conversation must remain civil.
Hate speech, vulgar language, unsubstantiated claims, threats and personal attacks will not be tolerated.
As of Aug. 8, 2011 we require that you must have a Facebook account to post comments on stories.
We use Facebook in an effort to compel readers to use their real names when posting.
