Letter from the editor: Feedback forum up and running

The Skiff wants your feedback, and we’re making it easier for you to tell us what you think and what you want to see in your newspaper.

Go to dailyskiff.com and look to your right. A red tab that reads “feedback” will be there. Click on it, and then click on the “Go to Our Feedback Forum” link on the pop-up. Once there, type your suggestion in the search box. If there are no matches, you can click on the “Create New Idea” button below the search box. You do not need to create an account with the Skiff or a third party Web site to leave a suggestion.

What’s more, you and other readers can vote on another’s suggestions, as well as your own. The vote scale ranges from 1 to 3 to describe the level of investment and interest in the idea, with 3 being the highest. Your number of votes is limited to 10 to encourage you to use your votes on the ideas that you really like. You can change your votes by clicking on them.

The Skiff editorial board will go over your ideas and label them-“under review,” for example. Although you don’t need to register for UserVoice, the third party providing the service, to make a suggestion, signing up will allow you to get e-mail updates on the status of your idea.

What do you like about the Skiff? What would you like to see us improve? What have we never done that you’d like to see? Tell us. We just ask you that you keep it clean and polite.

You are always welcome to write a letter to the editor about issues you feel strongly about. As for corrections, please e-mail [email protected] If there is an error in the newspaper, we will fix it online with an editor’s note appended to the article notifying readers about a correction, and we’ll also run a correction on the front page of the print issue.

Thank you for your readership. We hope that you will take a minute or two to give us your feedback.
