The News-Post is deploying a metering system that will limit the number of premium News-Post articles and features that nonmembers can read in a given 30-day period. Unregistered users can read three premium articles every 30 days. By signing up for a free online account, nonmembers can read up to nine premium articles every 30 days. Metering countdowns reset after 30 days from the first time nonmembers view an article. A membership is required to read more than nine. Some online stories and services will remain open to nonmembers, including classifieds, marketplace listings, event calendars, obituaries and wire stories.

Visit FrederickNewsPost.com/membership and you will be walked through the steps to create and account and activate your membership.
