What happened to the printed version of The Red Ledger?
When the staff made the decision to go online in 2011, it was based on the global decline of print newspapers and the clear advantages of being online– more timely news, more opportunities for infusing multimedia and social media, and the ability to produce more content. Starting in the fall of 2013, we now post four special print editions a year: two in the fall semester, and two in the spring semester.
Why isn’t my comment showing up on the story?
It is either still waiting on approval or has been denied. Comments must be approved by the editors or adviser before they are published, which results in a short turnaround time before comments can be seen. If it was denied, it did not meet the criteria specified in our comment policy.
I have an idea for a story or an event I would like covered. How do I be sure it is written about?
Email Corey Hale at [email protected], or submit a story idea here. Story ideas are welcomed by the staff of The Red Ledger, and while it is not guaranteed that suggested stories will be written, we will certainly take them into consideration and suggest them in story meetings.
How do I get involved with The Red Ledger?
Talk to Corey Hale in E103. Guest columns, photo essays, stories, and videos are encouraged. The Red Ledger reserves the right to refuse to publish any submissions, but they will be seriously considered and with direction from Mr. Hale, several guest contributions have been published in the past.
Who decides what content goes on the site?
A combination of staff ideas, local happenings, submitted story ideas, and posted information make up the ideas for stories, photo essays, and videos. Decisions on these ideas are made by the editorial staff and the adviser. Ideas are carefully thought over and contemplated based on timing, quality, and angle.
What if I have an issue with something that was put up on the site?
Every story is reviewed and edited normally more than four times before it ever enters the website, but as high school students, there still are mistakes made. If you have a problem with something on the site, whether there is a mistake, you are offended by the content, or there’s more to the story, please either leave a comment with a name and email, come by E103, or email an editor or the adviser.
