After a week with free access to www.recordcourier.com, the website will once more be limited to paid subscribers, with a big difference.
The definition of paid subscriber expands to include those folks who take the newspaper.
When we started charging for the website, one of the biggest groups of people who had an issue with it were those who were already paying for the paper.
Those folks stuck with us, and now they will reap access to the Internet for the price of their subscription. Those folks who haven’t subscribed to the paper or the website will get to see the first paragraphs of a story, but just as with the newsstand, they’ll have to put their money in to get the rest of the story.
I suggest those interested in getting the paper online go ahead and register. Your login will be the email address we have on file. If you’re a subscriber, you’ll have your name and password all ready to go. If you’ve forgotten your password, select the “forgot password” link at the bottom of the login box and we’ll email that information to you.
If you’re not a subscriber, and you like what you see, give the service representative a credit card number or other means of payment and you’re good to go.
A couple of stories every day will continue to be free to all readers, as will the news blog, the morning report, advertising and classifieds.
If you have any questions or comments feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 782-5121, ext. 215. I’ve talked a couple of people through the process over the years, I don’t expect this to be any different.
