6 FAQs

  • Why am I being blocked during registration?

    Some people may experience an issue during registration where they are blocked from registering. This may happen during general registration or when trying to post a comment. Due to our security and firewalls on our website put in place to protect our readers and the integrity of our website and its servers, some email addresses or IP addresses may be flagged as SPAM if they are listed in worldwide SPAM database or contain words or phrases that are commonly associated with SPAM email addresses. Being blocked is not permanent and a block can be removed upon request. In most cases, when you are blocked, you will be asked to solve a CAPTCHA or to submit an “Allow Request”. If that does not happen, please submit a support ticket with the email you are attempting to register for assistance.

  • Do I have to register to leave a comment?

    Registering on our website is completely voluntary. While registering allows you to take advantage of some features of our website such as tracking classified ads, business directory listing, job listings and more, it is not required to comment on articles. Simply fill out the form at the bottom of the article with your name, email, and comment to leave a comment. Information provided this way will not register you and will not be shared in any way. For more information on commenting, visit our Comment Policy.

  • Why don't you cover news in my area?

    Michigan City Journal is a very small operation comprised of two people. We primarily focus on news from Michigan City and its surrounding areas. While we try to get as much breaking news out as possible, we are limited by manpower to cover all news stories. If your area falls within our coverage area and we still are not covering it, chances are we were either not aware of the story or were not able to cover due to manpower. If you have a tip or breaking news you want to be shared, you can always submit it to newsdesk@michigancityjournal.com

  • I subscribed to for email notifications and do not want them anymore. Can I unsubscribe?

    Yes. If you open any of our newsletters in your email and scroll to the bottom, you will find an unsubscribe link in the footer. If you are wanting to only unsubscribe from specific notifications, you can manage your subscription and receive custom notifications.

  • I subscribed for news notifications but am not receiving any.

    If you have subscribed to our instant notifications and have not received any, please try the following steps:

    1. Check your "Spam" or "Junk" folder to make sure that emails are not being sent directly to your spam. If they are, be sure to add no-reply@michigancityjournal.com to your address book to make sure it does not continue to be marked as spam.

    2. Be sure that you have confirmed your subscription from the email automatically sent to you when you signed up. You may need to check your "Spam" or "Junk" folder to see if your confirmation email was sent there.

    If you have tried the steps above and are still unable to receive any notifications, please submit a support ticket and we will contact you as quickly as possible to resolve the issue.

  • Why are there so many ads on Michigan City Journal's website?

    Michigan City Journal believes that all news should be completely free and unrestricted to all of its members. However, our team puts a lot of time, effort, and dedication into keeping our website up-to-date and full of fresh news. In order to do this, we place advertisements on our page to generate income that helps pay for our website fees and our writers.

    While we would greatly appreciate you allowing us to display these ads, you can view our site without ads by installing an Adblocker extension on your browser.

    You can download an adblocker extension for your browser by clicking here.

    Please note: We are not affiliated with nor do we benefit from the adblocker listed above. This is an extension recommended by our tech department as one of the most reliable AdBlock extensions for multiple browsers.
