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.


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/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/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

We will pull unlinked threads that might violate the excerpt rules. Don't try to get around it by not posting a link. Please follow the rules so Jim doesn't have hassles.

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.

Pardon me while I try the color option. This is my first attempt... hello there Ok I see it works but that sure did take a long time. I might have forgotten my point by the time I figured that out. There must be an easier formula because some of you are very quick.

A quick tip, keep a word doc of html codes you use most often, copy and paste, and fill in what you want.

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.

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?
