Ok so the basics of this forum go like this:
Mods - There will be a sticky in mod discussion on news editing guidelines.
Here's a few things to consider when making a news post:
Quote your source
Always quote your source of news, we don't mind if its from engadget or another blog, and I'm sure they won't mind aslong as we link back to them. you will notice most of our news will have a [via Engadget] as the last line, this can be achived with the following line of BBcode:
We love our homepage to have lots of images, it draw attention and everyone likes to have a visual aid with a blog post!
Typically we like to keep the images small, a thumbnail at 150px wide in the top left corner, or a wider image if relevant or a main body of the post eg. a commercial banner.
Don't worry about positioning images, just either attach images or link them using the [img] BBcode and we'll decide on the best place to use them and do the necessary layout stuff
Related youtube videos as you can guess are always a great news post. Just paste your youtube video URL to include videos like so:
No blog spam, provide links to relevant article posts, not blog home pages, so as to always make sure the via link always points to the article.
Keep it related!
Make sure its related to the Dell Mini product line, hardware, software, operating systems or just related to Dell in general.
If you stick to these guidelines theres no reason we won't publish your news everytime, and maybe assign moderator status to regulars!
