- As you may have noticed, we have upgraded our commenting system effective New Year's Day. The new system now allows you to easily sort comments (click on "Discussion" and choose if you want to sort by Best, Newest or Oldest), like or dislike comments, share comments on Twitter and Facebook and see the most recent activity (click on "My Disqus"). We had implemented the new system last fall, however had to revert back to the old one due to issues on mobile and tablet devices. Those problems should be fixed, but if you have any problems with the new Comments section, please contact us by clicking here.

- As we do every year, we have lifted most of the bans for our "Comments" section. Please check out our rules for our "Comments" section at this link.

- We are continually updating the photos on the site. If you have high-resolution photos that you have taken and own that we can use on the site, please contact us by clicking here. You will receive credit (if desired) if we use your photos on the site. Please let us know how you would like to be credited, and if you would like for us to link to your Twitter or Facebook account.

- If you have a website or blog and would like to use our headlines, you can do so with our RSS feed at this link. You can also subscribe to receive our headlines straight to your inbox daily by clicking here.
