Dear Friend,

As you have probably noticed, we have redesigned and upgraded our web site to enhance your experience as a reader. Please look around.

We hope you like it, but realize the new format might take a few days of getting used to. We think you’ll soon see, however, that information on our new site is better organized in several ways:

  • Our in-depth stories, projects on big issues of long-lasting importance, will be more accessible — and for longer — from our home page,
  • Reader opinion and commentaries, previously presented on a separate web site, CTViewpoints, will be easier to find and integrated into the main flow of the news, and
  • Reader comments on individual stories, frequently attacked by unwanted bots and trolls, will be better managed and moderated with a new system.

Overall, we think the more contemporary design better reflects the quality of the watchdog journalism you have come to expect from The Connecticut Mirror.

As with any new web site, of course, even after extensive testing, there will be bugs to correct.  There always are.  If you notice something that doesn’t seem quite right, please email your observations to publisher@ctmirror.org.

Thank you, as always, for your support and appreciation of CT Mirror’s critical role in our state’s democracy.
