Registration begins in an hour. One last time, here are the details from our online department, along with a list of the prizes being given away in the random drawing.

This afternoon we are implementing free registration on the LoHud Yankees Blog. This is not meant to hinder you in any way. Rather, it will make reading and commenting on the blog a richer experience. By introducing registration, we will try to ensure that the conversation is free from the distractions of spammers, trolls and imposters.

This information is for demographic purposes only and will not be released to any outside party without your express consent. However, you may receive promotional or informational e-mails related to the LoHud Yankees Blog. You also must check the box saying you agree to the Terms of Service. Once you register and sign in, you’ll be able to comment as much as you wish.

To kick off this new feature, we are holding a drawing for those who register between noon July 20 and noon Aug. 3. Ten users chosen at random will win prizes provided by LoHud.com/The Journal News and Steiner Sports. You must be a registered user to enter the contest. Only one user per household may win.

Registration reminder07.19.10

In case anyone missed it last night or this morning, I want to remind everyone that we will be using free registration on the LoHud Yankees Blog beginning Tuesday.

To answer a few early questions that have popped up: 1. Yes, you will be able to opt out of informational emails from the blog. 2. International readers should have no problems registering. 3. We have some plans in place to try to help people get their original screen names. If those issues pop up, we’re probably going to have to deal with them as they happen, but we’re very aware that people are going to want to keep their screen names. We want that as well.

One more time, here’s the original message from our online department.  

Starting Tuesday, July 20, we are implementing free registration on the LoHud Yankees Blog. This is not meant to hinder you in any way.

LoHud Yankees Blog beginning free registration07.18.10

A lot of smart people — much smarter than me – have been working behind the scenes for quite some time, and the LoHud Yankees Blog is ready to begin free registration later this week. This is the product of conversations that have been going on for months back at The Journal News. It is also the product of my bosses’ dedication to keeping the comments section as user-friendly as possible. Here’s a quick message with the nuts-and-bolts details from our online department. They’re the ones who did all the heavy lifting here.
