After months of planning and preparation, it’s time to take akbukforum.com for a shakedown cruise. We’re very pleased to bring you a mix of online news and civic dialogue on a website dedicated to bringing you the best in reporting, analysis and debate.
Help us break some champagne over the bow as we launch the good ship Sentinel. Since this is a shakedown cruise of a brand new site, you might run across a bug or two. Please leave a note in the comments and let us know what you think.
To help test our comment tools, we’ve created a practice thread, so that new users can experiment.
