ATTENTION: Beginning on Wednesday, September 13, 2006 thedesertsun.com will be upgrading to a new community-based chat forum. The new forums will still feature our existing reader feedback sections such as dinner conversation, but with some exciting new additions. Our new article commenting system, known as Story Chat, will allow readers to respond directly to articles featured on thedesertsun.com and allow readers to engage in discussions on those specific articles. The new system will also offer a variety of new discussion forums as well as the ability for readers to create their own topics of discussion. The best part: It's still free! You must sign up for an account by creating a username and supplying a valid e-mail address for verification purposes. Once you have registered, it's as simple as signing in and getting involved in the discussion. You can create an account and get familiar with the new-look forums by logging on to http://forums.desertsun.com. On Wednesday, September 13, 2006 this page and its comments will be moved to the new forums, we can't wait to see you there!
