How may a registered user participate in the site?

Multiple ways. A new way is to become a Citizen Journalist, finding and reporting news that you see or know about. Click on the "You Report!" line in the navigation block on the left side of the page. Write your story. Spell-check it. Your story goes into a “moderated queue,” where it will be viewed by an editor at The Citizen. If the story is approved, the editor will release your story to the Citizen Journalism box on our site. Other ways to interact with our site include starting and maintaining your own blog, and commenting on much of our editorial content and other comments.
