Geneseo Republic now requires those commenting on stories to register first.

The registration process asks for an e-mail address and a name. An email will then be sent to that address with a link to a site where the user will choose a username and password.

The e-mail address that users provide will not be viewable by other public users.

People will not have to use their real names when posting, so anonymous posting can continue.

Registration gives the Galva News  an e-mail address for each commenter and allows us to record IP addresses. We will, if necessary, be able to block comments from individuals and/or a single IP address.

If you receive a note stating that your registration link did not work, please make sure the ‘=’ is at the end of the URL being used to validate.
