Tablet Magazine Nominated for a Webby!
Vote for us!
It’s a real pleasure to announce that Tablet Magazine has been nominated for the 16th annual Webby Award in the category of Religion and Spirituality. This is our second Webby nomination and this year we’re honored to be sharing it with four great websites.
The nomination actually puts us in the running for two awards: the Webby, which will be rewarded by a panel of illustrious, impeccably dressed judges of discerning taste, and the Webby People’s Voice Award, which will be rewarded by the illustrious, impeccably dressed, voting public.
So, readers of Tablet Magazine, if you enjoy our humble attempts to provide you the best commentary on the Jewish world why not take a moment to show that satisfaction with a click. Voting is open now.
Daily rate: $2
Monthly rate: $18
Yearly rate: $180
WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.
We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
