Frequently Asked Questions

1. I registered and clicked “submit” but I still can’t login.

Make sure that you’ve gone to your email and found the registration email from us. This should be in your inbox, but might be in your SPAM folder.  It will be from  Open this email and click the activation link.  This will open a new window that will say, “Congratulations, your account has been activated.” You can now log in and read articles on our site.

2. I’ve tried registering and it keeps telling me my User Name / Email Address is already taken

.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and they will email you your registration information.

3. Why do I have to register? Other sites don’t make me do that to read some free articles. There are different ways to create a metered paywall.  How a site chooses to implement this is entirely up to them. We chose this method because it allows us to keep better track of the number of articles read by people each month.

4. If I register and give you my email address are you going to send me annoying Sentinel emails?

No.  Your email address is an easy way for us to look up your registration information should you lose it.  It is also one of the ways we track how many articles you have read.  We do not your registration email address for any other purpose.  However, if you’d like to join our email list, you can do so by clicking here.

5. TV news sites have content on their websites for free.  Why don’t you?

We believe that the original content created by our reporters and photographers is valuable, no matter what form it’s in.  We do allow 9 free articles a month for anyone who wants to register and read them.  This way, if there is just one column you are interested in, or if occasional breaking news is all you want to see, you don’t have to subscribe.

6. I think there is something wrong with my subscription.
