Welcome to our new website

Have your say

We’ve given thestar.co.uk a massive make-over so have a look round - and win prizes.

Our digital team has listened to your suggestions in recent months, improved your favourite bits and dumped the ones you didn’t like.

And you know we want to know what you think - good or bad.

We are also proud of the huge amount of Sheffielders from across the globe who choose our website to voice their opinions on the day’s sport and news.

To be able to do that on the new website you’ll have to register, even if you were registered on the old site.

It only takes a couple of minutes but to ease the pain we’ll be offering prizes - not that most of our football fans will need any encouragement.

Everyone who registers in the first week, before noon on Tuesday, February 1, will be automatically entered into a draw.

We’ve teamed up with Sheffield Theatres to offer the top prize of a season ticket to the David Hare Season.

The winner will get two tickets to each production on any date (subject to availability).

Click on the link at the bottom of this page to find out more about the David Hare season.

And they’ll be other incentives along the way so keep an eye out.

If you have queries about the new website, no matter how big or small, email our digital team and we’ll get back to you asap.

We’re compiling a user guide based on your questions and our answers - so just by asking you’ll be helping out everyone else.

Get in touch by emailing Digital Community Editor Nancy Fielder at nancy.fielder@thestar.co.uk

For now, here are tips for getting the most out of the new thestar.co.uk:

1, All our content is much easier to find using the drop down menus which appear when you hover over the top tiles - news, sport, community and lifestyle.

2, We can get more news to you with fewer clicks. Take a look down the homepage and you might find stories from sections you hadn’t spotted before.

3, Re-register, pick your username if you want a fresh start (you know who you are!) or stick with your old favourite, then you can comment as before.

4, Get in touch and we’ll do all we can to make your local news website the way you want it.
