Quick Notes, 8/08/08 – 12/08/08
The Humboldt Herald has long wished for a sidebar widget that would allow discussion of off-topic subjects without hogging space in the main post section or derailing on-subject comment threads.
Until such widget is developed, we’re adding a page called “Quick Notes.” You’ll find the button for this page directly beneath the Humboldt Herald header. Feel free to post notable but off-topic news or observations to this “Quick Notes” page rather than disrupting comment threads with your breaking news.
This page is an experiment. We’ll see how well it works. Perhaps regular participants can help create the pattern so people will use this page for random subjects.
Readers can keep up with the discussion the same way as regular posts — by watching the ever changing recent comments widget in the upper right sidebar.
