Hi Listeners and Members-

KBOO has decided to change how listeners and members can post on the website. Due to the number of anonymous posts that did not meet our "Community Guidelines", which can be found here, http://kboo.fm/terms_of_use. We have changed it so that a person must be registered with the website in order to post, no more anonymous posts. We hope that this will cut down on the number of comments that have not met our standards of community.

I hope everyone that has been so vocal on our website will continue to do so but while registered and not anonymously. To register click here.

If you have any questions please feel free to call me at the station.

Thanks,

Sun Lee

It would help to make it easier to log in...

...sign up, etc.

I think the bulk of anonymous comments might be due to it being somewhat difficult to sign up and log in.

You have to make it somewhat easy for people or they're not likely to do it. I can understand having to go to a log-in only setup, probably due to abusive language or troll-age, but this can also open KBOO up to unwarranted accusations of censorship or suppression of open discourse.

Also, and I'm not sure if other folks are experiencing this, the KBOO site doesn't keep you logged in. It would be handy if you could check a box to remain logged in each time you visit.

I think if you streamline the login/signup process, you'll get more people using the site under their user names. Now, cutting back on trollage and other abusive behavior, that's a whole 'nother challenge.

I have sent your suggestions

I have sent your suggestions to our web developer to see if we can address your concerns.

Re: Logging in vs Anon posting: Thank you

Seems to be working now.

I am logged in and stay logged in unless I log out manually.

Thanks so much. No doubt this will help ease some folk's frustrations when posting, commenting.
