Today marks a new chapter for the Weston Mercury website with the introduction of a new commenting system called Disqus.

This new commenting system is designed to make it easier for readers to sign up and join in the conversation on the day’s hot news topics, either by registering through Disqus or through your social media channels including Facebook, Google, and Twitter.

To get started, simply choose your social media account logo below or click ‘Sign up with Disqus’.

Then enter your name, email address and password, and wait for a verification email to appear in your inbox.

Discussions are in real-time – so there’s no more waiting around for a comment to appear.

You can now reply directly to other comments in a thread and share them on social media, too.

Additionally, you can also choose to receive email notifications when someone replies to your comment.

Readers can even add images and video to keep discussions lively and insightful.

Not only does it look so much better than the Mercury’s previous commenting system, it’s also a lot easier for us to block those who attempt to disrupt the conversation.

You can also alert us to any posts you feel are offensive or inappropriate simply by clicking to the right of the post and hitting ‘flag as inappropriate’ and we will investigate.

Register below and then join in the discussion... we look forward to your views and comments.
