Edited on 09/11/2004 8:05:54 PM PDT by Admin Moderator. [history]

We've had a lot of new folks join up recently. Welcome aboard, this thread is a gentle reminder of some basic posting guidelines. (And for some of you old timers as well) Please read the follow, and ask any questions. We will all try to help you out.


HOW TO POST AN ARTICLE


SEARCH

If it's a breaking news topic, check breaking news first, it's probably already posted.

To avoid duplicate posts, please search before posting. Use the published article title to prevent duplicates. The best method to search is to pick a key word or two from the title. If the article you are posting is, "Dan Rather Memo", start with 'Memo' for the key word. If it is a hot topic, you might want to use two or more keywords, in this case, try 'memo rather'. For an effective search, select 'match all words' and select 'order by post time'.

Search Memo


Vanities and General Interest.

General Interest (Chat)

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 (Chat). Vanities should be limited to the mission of Free Republic.

Bloggers & Personal

For all of you who have blogs or personal web sites or personal news or opinion or forum sites that you would like to discuss or promote on Free Republic, here's the place to do it.

Our new Bloggers & Personal forum is for:

Click on the "Bloggers & Personal" forum link on the Forums sidebar of the latest posts pages.

Hopefully, this will become a very popular forum for promoting and or discussing blogs and personal opinion/news/forum pages.


And lastly, please bookmark this excerpt only list, Jim updates frequently.

Updated FR Excerpt and Link Only or Deny Posting List due to Copyright Complaints

FYI: The New York Times is not on the excerpt list.

Come on, they don't want to see babes, they want to see hairy apes who can't shoot the boil off a liberal's hiney. You know ... women who don't shave their pits or legs.

Well, the problem with the Admin. Moderator's spiel is that if one were to spend his entire day discussing (and arguing) politics --even on a political website-- one will go bats**t nuts.

It's better to remember that life consists of the stressful (world events, work, family life) AND the relaxing (entertainment, activity) and to treat this site accordingly.

Yes, I know what the stated message of FreeRepublic is, and I appreciate it's highly informative and amusing take on the news of the day (from a conservative angle, for a change). However, just what in the hell is the problem with an occassional NON-POLITICAL post on music, movies, sports, etc. from an established Freeper. Nothing, if you ask me.

After all, some folks like myself, weegee, etc. appreciate the fact that we can discuss our non-political interests on occassion with people that we know won't be coming at us with some unrelated, "I-love-Michael-Moore", bulls**t liberal agenda.

Example: You'd be surprised, but I'd much rather discuss a good movie I just saw with decent and thoughtful Freepers, than tussle with the disgusting socialist attack dogs that have taken over the IMDB.

OK, I had a really smart-aleck post. But being a mod, I can't do that. There are drawbacks to this as well.

from a FR newbie. Thank you. We need help.

Welcome to FreeRepublic.com! :^D

Here is a link. Go to post #116 first (link should take you right to that post), and look under "Pictures". That will give a walk-thru for picture posting. That article gives a lot of very useful and helpful tips on HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language), which you need to post on FR. There are other related links and information there as well.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/735087/posts?page=116#116

You might want to bookmark that article. Bookmarking puts an article on your FReeper Profile page for quick and easy referencing. See post #53 & 59 for bookmarking instructions.

If you have any questions or problems, feel free to send me a Freep mail or a note and we’ll work through it.

it's the ultra-lurk trolls that signed up in 1998-97 that really irk me.

And we are seeing more of those this year. (almost 100 percent have no profile page - a good indication to search for posts by the screenname)

I signed on in 1998 and I don't have a profile listed. I don't want to put too much effort into FR as it may just be a fad.

There are so many good newbies out there

I was reacting to the dozen or so that did the old "post and run" routine last week. You guys did an excellent job of ZOTTING but I was thinking of preventive measures. Of course, we are seeing "sleeper" trolls popping up now with 1998/1999 sign on dates so.....

Welcome aboard.
The AM's are chock full of info and are really useful when you, say, post a thread and goof the title.
For example, a quick "Help! Can you correct the title!" is all that's needed, and they'll fix whatever is up with the title.
(If you accidentally double post, they can also remove one when asked.)

I remember being new here once myself a few years back.
Again, welcome aboard!
And happy FReeping.

The radical left and its creations -- the Viet Nam Syndrome and the Mainstream Media, among others -- may all be casualties of this election.

I hope you're right.

Remember Newt Gingrich and the Contract with America, and how everybody said that the era of the New Deal had suddenly ended? It didn't turn out that way, unfortunately.

I think these are all steps along the path you're describing. If we can continue to take two steps forward, one step back, we'll do OK.

Or if Bush wins in a landslide (I know that's not what the ex-mainstream media are predicting, but... ), Kerry could become the political mirror-image of Goldwater, taking what liberalism has turned into out of the mainstream of politics as he implodes.

Either way works for me. "Slow and steady" would probably be more stable and harder to turn around again (as happened with Gingrich).

There have been a couple of old signup trolls, but they're few and far between. With the help of alert FReepers, we usually hear about them after one or two posts.
