A change is coming to the Daily Tidings online forum and story-response system.

Effective Wednesday, dailytidings.com will suspend the system that allows forum comments on stories and blogs.

Readers may notice a different look in our staff-written blogs by the end of September and will see a new, moderated reader commenting system on the site by the end of October.

Between Wednesday and the date the new systems are in place, readers will not be able to comment on stories or blogs.

Previous forum comments will not be accessible in the interim or once the new system is in place.

Thanks for your patience with this change.

We’ll provide more information about the new system and how it will work soon.
