The forums on KELOLAND.com have been a place where people could share their opinions on local and world news.  Shortly after I started at KELO, the forums transitioned from the old school message boards to a full-fledged vBulletin system.  Along with the many advantages of the new system, it just felt more like an online community.

But the online world is always changing and there has been a shift away from message boards and this style of communicating and sharing.  As we are always looking for better ways to allow our viewers to share their comments, we’ve phased out the forums in favor of comments at the bottom of stories on KELOLAND.com.

We did mourn the loss of the forums in the newsroom Monday.

Facebook comments at the bottom of stories on KELOLAND.com.

You’ll notice that we’re utilizing a plug-in that allows you to post comments and share these stories directly with your friends on Facebook.

Look for this addition to our site as we include the option in more stories.
