Hi all,

It's time again for another posting refresher course. Thanks for your cooperation.

FYI: The New York Times is not part of the lawsuit.

Only one these topics will show up in the sidebars, posting to multiple topics will still only show one topic.

Activism/Chapters - Activism, protests, news and business of Free Republic Chapters. Freep this poll should be placed in vanity. General news stories about activism should be place in news. After action reports from Freeps are allowed here.

Announcements – Notifications of Activism events, FR business

Breaking News

- Not every story is breaking news. Breaking news should be news that affects most of us. There are some exceptions. If there is a hot current event happening, check breaking news. Most likely, it's there already, please check first, then use our search function. (explained below)

Editorial - Editorials are opinions. Some vanities, if well written and thought out can be considered editorial material.

Extended News - Extended news is for stories which have been posted previously and have updated or newer information.

Free Republic - This categories is reserved for Free Republic business.

Front Page News - Front page is for stories which are not breaking news, but would be found on the front page of a newspaper.


These are just some of the topics that you may use two or more. Do not go out of your way to put in more topics just to try to get more views for your thread. Doing so makes the topics less usable for everyone. Also, do not list every state on your thread. It is unnecessary. Please limit the state topics to those states that the story pertains to.

Business/Economy - Business, industry, financial, markets, trade, banking, budget, debt, taxes and economy news.

Constitution/Conservatism - Discussion of conservatism and conservative principles and issues.

Crime/Corruption – News and discussion of crime, corruption government abuse, power grabs, and scandal.

Culture/Society - Discussion of health, education, welfare, drugs, abortion, environment, housing, unions, employment, social security, religion, arts, humanity, sports, and other cultural and societal issues.

Foreign Affairs - News and discussion of international politics, foreign affairs, diplomacy, national security, war, military, defense and armed forces issues.

Government - News and discussion of all branches of government, departments, agencies, law, policy, legislation, processes and judiciary.

Miscellaneous - Anything which doesn't fit into another category.

News/Current Events - News and discussion of current events.

Philosophy - Discussions of philosophy and ideology.

Political Humor/Cartoons - Funny stuff

Politics/Elections - Discussions of politics and elections.

Unclassified - Articles awaiting re-classification.


Vanities and General Interest.

Your Opinion/Questions - All non-sourced non-news threads are posted here. This doesn’t mean your one thought is a thread by itself. Lately, we have been seeing articles posted that should be comments made on the main article. Your comment/vanity article will be pulled or moved to General Interest. Vanities should be limited to the mission of Free Republic.

General interest (Chat)

– Is for discussions of news and interest topics unrelated to the news forum. We will move articles unrelated to the news forum here.


To avoid duplicate posts, please search before posting.

SEARCH

The best method to search is to pick a key word or two from the title. If the article you are posting is, "Our 1st Quarter Freepathon is Underway! - Thread 4", start with 'Quarter' for the key word. If it is a hot topic, you might want to use two or more keywords, in this case, try 'Quarter' and 'Freepathon'. For an effective search, select 'match all words' and select 'order by post time'.

Guilty of forgetting the "search first" feature...probably also of too many topics...and maybe also, oh balls!

I will relegate myself back to "Status: lurking" for a bit and try and absorb more.

If your post doesn't seem to post, reload the page before you hit post again, most likely it has posted.

For all you know I might be a girl.

That reminds me, I offered to send one of the female Mods a nude pic of Obi-Wan Kenobi. I realized later that it might not have been the same Mod that had received that offer. Ooops!

Thanks for that.

I just want to clear up any confusion out there, the naked Obi-Wan I was referring to was NOT old and crusty Obi-Wan (Alec Guinness), it was young and hot Obi-Wan (Ewan Mcgregor).

I can't find the picture anyway, dammit....
