Submitting News Articles for The Town Crier

All news will be moderated, and if we find a problem with it we'll contact you back with any changes you need to make. If you follow the template as follows, however, you should pass the moderation with flying colours!

This news is considered IN CHARACTER, and as such, any information appearing should only be knowledge the paper/reporter would know about! [ie. no meta-gaming!]

What you will need:

Title - something catchy, eyegrabbing, but not too long!

Content Tags - A few words which describe the news. These will be used by the search engine.

Large Image - Pixels; 590x150. Max Filesize; 700mb. Extensions; jpg, jpeg, png, gif. This should also be eyegrabbing, but not too cluttered!

Post this to the Archives Gallery first, and give us the link! It can be safely deleted after the article has been posted!

Small Image - Pixels; 275x100. Max Filesize; 700mb. Extensions; jpg, jpeg, png, gif. When the news is "pushed down" by more recent news, the image will have to shrink too! This can be the same image as the Large Image, or something different!

Post this to the Archives Gallery first, and give us the link! It can be safely deleted after the article has been posted!

News Teaser - The bold font you can see under the images. This should be a very brief, eye-catching summary of the news. Make the reader want to know more!

News Details - Your article should go here! Make it snappy, and pleasing to the eye! Be sure it makes sense to be posted in a newspaper, and does not involve any meta-gaming. People love to hear about themselves in news stories; so the more you freelink peoples names, and kinships, the more people you'll make happy!

You can even insert pictures into the news item. Let us know which picture you want placing where, by placing a link to the picture in the wanted location (make sure the image is uploaded to the Archives Gallery first! It can be safely deleted after the article has been posted!).

Please note, this is not a place for OOC. Only in special circumstances, which the Web Team will discuss, shall OOC be permitted.
