Users will need an account with Disqus to comment on stories.

The Renton Reporter has switched to a different reader-comments platform. The service provided by Civil Comments soon will be unavailable, so we’ve returned to Disqus, a tool we have used in the past.

If you already have a Disqus account, you can use that for commenting on stories. If you do not have a Disqus account, you will need to register before posting a comment on RentonReporter.com. You can do so using the form below the comment window at the bottom of stories.

You are no longer required to rate the comments of others before posting your own, but our standards of civility haven’t changed. Please consult our reader comments policy.

Have any questions? Send them to editor Sarah Brenden at sbrenden@rentonreporter.com.
