First off, we want to pause and take a second to say thanks to everyone who has ever interacted with us in anyway. We get a ton of emails, comments, pictures, videos, compliments and criticisms and it's truly amazing! Without this support Sloopin wouldn't be what it is...so thank you!
Second, here at Sloopin our intentions are simple. We want to do the best we can to provide information we think people would find interesting about the South Loop. With this we intend to cover a wide range of topics, but all specific to the South Loop in some capacity. Beyond that we want our readers to help create a healthy discourse that can be beneficial to the neighborhood.
Through the years, sometimes this discussion has stayed true to this intention and sometimes it has not. Recently there has been much consternation in regard to some of our comment threads. With that said, we are going to be testing out a new policy on comments.
For the next week or so, we will be requiring people to either have a Google account or an OpenID account to comment on Sloopin. The goal of this is to weed out some of the unnecessary comments while also trying to generate more accountability in the comment threads.
With that said, an OpenID account is pretty wide ranging and you probably have one whether or not you know it (for more information click here).
Thanks again to everyone for making Sloopin what it is and please continue to comment!
