News Post Format - PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

Postby BioWizard on January 17th, 2011, 8:55 pm 

Posting on this forum is easy, and the topics appear as news links in the "what's new" page, so people can see the news and trace back to the thread for discussion and comments. We do not publish the news, we merely link to them, thus the following format is mandatory:

Subject: Title of the article (author and date are also helpful)

Post:

First paragraph of the article (a better alternative would be a short editorial written by you)
Source: URL to article

Attachment:
Attach the image of the article
Insert the caption, especially copyrights

Please keep in mind that our forums are geared towards discussing topics of reasonable caliber and seriousness. That said, links to celebrity / gossip / tabloids / music / etc news are strongly discouraged, and most likely will be automatically deleted.


That's it!

Any postings that do not contain a link to the source publisher will be promptly deleted.

UPDATE: PLEASE READ

As of Dec. 21, 2018, this forum will be for science-related news only. This is not a forum for general political discussion or any promotion of partisan viewpoints or rants regarding current politics. Failure to comply with this guideline may result in removal of thread and/or banning.

If you wish to discuss political theory, as it relates to a philosophical topic, please use our Political Theory subforum, which is located in the Philosophy forum. Some topics, with regard to the scientific study of political belief systems, may also fit in the Social Sciences forum of SCF.
