Article contest!
Looking for some people who can write some nice articles for our future 'main page'. We are considering moving to http://www.vbulletin.com/index.php?do=screenshots the latest version of the forum software, which supports a main site page, blogs, articles etc. Obviously we will have some space to fill :) So please feel free to join in! You can just post them in this forum, we will put the best ones on the front page! We need at least 10 good articles before we can go live! So bring out the writer in you and share! Basically anything that adds value to people's life is welcome!

Some example articles that come to mind:

- Your poly family situation (with pics for example)
- How to communicate properly
- How to deal with jealousy
- How can mono's live/thrive within poly relationships?
- Etc...

The use of images inside the article is recommended to make it more attractive! (please make sure they are copyright free). If you can't find any images that is fine,
we will find a nice stock photo to put on your article.

Nice :)
This looks really cool, Oliver. I will think about writing an article to submit.

I'll also consider writing an article.

Good idea! ... and, it's about time!

I'm the sort of writer who needs feedback and help from someone (or several) with editing and proof reading skills. So -- shouldn't we assemble a team of qualified proof readers and editors, so we end up with good quality stuff?

Any skilled volunteers? SeventhCrow already threw his hat in. You still in, -Crow?

Oh Geez
As we say out here in the Midwest U.S.

I am totally great at editing. Been getting lots of practice lately. I will volunteer to edit as soft or hard as the articles require. I have some experience in news writing as well. Just as long as there's not a ton, but we can work on them together as they come.

River- you know you love it!

i have worked as a proof reader many times and would be happy to do so for this project it sounds like a good one!


Fidelia 12-29-2009 09:55 PM

I'll help too. I've proof-read lots of things, professionally and pro bono.

I just wanted to thank everyone who offered to help with editing and/or proof reading. This will insure a better quality of work.

Who will be our general editor? Will we have a tiered system of editors, with a general editor and associate editors?

I've been quite busy, but I'll think about what I want to say and come up with an article idea in the next day or two. Then I'll get started on writing this week.

I worked on an editorial board for a literary magazine for several years, so I am always available for proof-reading, editing, or other related tasks. I might even try to pull something together to submit. :)

Does this project now have an "executive editor" (EE)? An EE could "hire" (volunteers) who have agreed to help with the various tasks, e.g., proof-reading, editing.... The EE could help maintain momentum and progress, assemble an "editorial board" -- if required, etc....
