Making a List, Need Help

I’m compiling a link list of Tidewater news and opinion web sites, with annotations to show whether they support user comments and discussion (first draft below). Do you have any links I should add?

Will update per comments.

  1. I think your list is pretty good. I thought about the Richmond Times Dispatch, BH Media a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway. The don’t seem to have online comments either. But I’m not sure there is much difference between it and the Pilot.

    Are you thinking of sending a letter to post a link to here?

    1. RE: “Are you thinking of sending a letter to post a link to here?”

      Not necessarily, although that is certainly one possible use of the list. Some others are:

      • Competitor intelligence. I’m under the impression Tidewater Forum is unique in featuring 100% community-generated content. I don’t know this to be true, but I’m curious about it.
      • Sources for new content. All of us are focused on Pilot letters and opinions. We can expand our horizons while keeping the focus local.

      • Potential features for forum champions to take on. Maybe someone here would like to canvas the competition from time to time and post a few findings. I have in mind an occasional work of art called, “3 (or 5) Things that Caught My Eye Around Tidewater Today (or this week, or this month, etc.). There are other possibilities.

      All in all, I was just thinking the list might be useful or interesting in a number of different ways.

  2. Well, given that the Daily Press and the Virginian Pilot are the same newspaper… only one of the links is necessary.

    The reason the VP got rid of comments is because the Daily Press did so years ago, and the VP just changed to using the DP web design to save money. The VP is a mirror site of the DP.

    The Daily Virginian, The Daily Pilot, The Virginian Press… Ooohh, The Pilot Press, sounds violent. I LIKE IT!
