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.
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'.
All non-sourced non-news threads are posted here. This doesnt 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/Chat. Vanities should be limited to the mission of Free Republic.

Jim and the Mod threads (cool band name)
HTML Sandbox (practice html here, learn new tricks)
John made a place for them. Some articles written from a blog may warrent to be in news, ie, the memo story. But, not all blogs, or vanities, should be posted in news.
Fifth Edition of the Lexicon of FreeRepublic * * A helpful FR dictionary for newcomers * *
Many questions by newbies answered here about "what does it mean"
We're probably due for a new lexicon thread. Anyone feel free to update that.
As long as it is open book, I will be fine.
I think this thread calls for an amusing folk parody, don't you?
Next thing I knwo, there will be a Motley Crue reunion.
They have new material..
Yep...I like cheese...MUD
George P. Bush delivers a bilingual
address to the Republican National
Convention in 2000
None of the cool FReepers use search anymore, and why did you pull my "Letter from Robin Williams" thread, four times in an hour no less!?!?!?
Unleash the Hogs of Peace.
P.J. O'Rourke Parliament of Whores
Aren't Helen Thomas pictures permissable when discussing the virgins awaiting murderous islamofascist terrorist thugs?
Make it happen, my FRiend...MUD
A quick tip, keep a word doc of html codes you use most often, copy and paste, and fill in what you want.
Beat me to it!!!!
Ok so I copied and pasted the formula in Word so when I need it I just go to Word, copy and paste it over here and then put in the word I want to do? Oh gosh.
Dr. Tyson is soooo unfair to the rest of us guys on soooo many different levels.
That's about it. You can do it with links and picture code too.
-good times, G.J.P.(Jr.)
10 = DITTO
Blog me, blog me, I beg you!
Bump and bookmark.
That was close, too, only 45 min & 7 secs!
You probably wanna be suspended by the mods in post #10, too, eh?
"Blog me, Suspend me, FReep me till I write bad FReepathon checks!"
I thought it sounds more like a (vanity)
I'd hit it, LOL
With advance warning. However, please don't post HT pictures in the same thread as President Bush, even thought we know she commands a front row seat at the press briefings.
that should be 45 min & 5 seconds. my bad.
This is simply too much reading. I will follow RINOCON posting etiquette and continue to post every thought, question, utterance, rhetorical question, and joke in Breaking News, entitled with my CAPS LOCK engaged, super-numerous exclamation marks, and SpellCheck turned off...
My effort at lampooning Ted "The Swimmer" Kennedy was my first-and last-stab at genius.
-good times, G.J.P.(Jr.)
I figured The Wizard of Id's "Fink-in-the-drink" gag would be perfect for Ted Kennedy.
FYI, newbie. ;-) *smooch*
Thanks for the reminder.
psst, where's the bathroom?
Are you heylady's son???
Yup! How have you been?
Great, other than trying to recuperate from a nasty flu bug. Hubby "Turbojet" and I had such a great time in DC. How have you been? :)
The "Updated FR Excerpt and Link Only or Deny Posting List due to Copyright Complaints" link could maybe link to an html page somewhere that can be updated instead of to a thread from April 2004. It is easy to update a regular html page but to update a thread you have to add something at the bottom. (Bob Wallace is not on that list!)
I have been really good. DC was awesome, I wish it wasn't every four years though. I guess I am one of the few who did catch the Flu. My mother was out sick for almost a week. How is the Turbojet?
Sheesh...get a room.
Jim updates the body of the thread as needed.
Doing good! He just got home so I'm getting off line for awhile. Good to talk to you! Say "hey" to heylady!
Will do, take care.
