    Just Two Submissions Waiting To be Published

    Just as note that the que for topical submissions to CF stands at an awe inspiring - TWO! I just submitted the first in a new series of articles - The Chronicles of Keoland - and noted that the cupboard is somewhat bare. If you have been holding back an article submission, now would be a good time to consider submitting.

    Yes indeed there are only TWO submissions ready for the front page, now that GVD has submitted the second one that is(it being the first in a thirty-three part series no less!!! Shocked Cool). People ought to be submitting finished articles using the "Submit Article" link in the upper left of the page under the "Main Menu" section. Here is a direct link:

    http://www.canonfire.com/cf/modules.php?name=Submit_News

    We've had a lot of new folks pop in lately. Nobody should be shy about submitting an article of their own. Write to the best or your ability, and write about something you like! All types of articles are welcome so long as they have to do with Greyhawk. Cool

    NOTE: This thread will likely be moved to a more appropriate forum at some point in time, but for now it's a good topic for people to see and discuss.

    I have several article done but am waiting on maps and heraldry before submitting them. These articles seem to have a life of there own and seem to grow.

    As Ceb stated elsewhere; Its either here or OJ so I was curious can I post my initial overview articles (1-2 pages) here and in collaboration with others produce a more indepth submission on the same albeit expanded topic to the OJ.

    Sure you can. Writing a feeder article first, and then expanding it into something truly massive and crazy sounds just fine to me.

    People ought to make use of this thread to discuss anything and everything relating to article submissions, such as what makes a good article, how big should an article be, etc. If you have any questions then ask away! All opinions are welcome! Happy Any technical questions can be handled by the moderators, or even by those who are very familiar with how things work. Other questions are pretty much open to the community to give their opinions on. These are the people who read the articles after all, so they will have definite views on what they like. There ought to be a good amount of varied feedback(I hope).

    Before asking any questions though, everyone who is not familiar with submitting articles ought to read the FAQ here(it's not that long, so don't be lazy and not read it!):

    http://www.canonfire.com/cf/modules.php?name=FAQ&myfaq=yes&id_cat=1&categories=Canonfire%21

    ...and visit the "Submit Article" link here:

    http://www.canonfire.com/cf/modules.php?name=Submit_News

    Once you have looked those links over then ask your questions.

    Submit your article without the images. Send the images to me, and I'll add them when we post the article. Include some brief instructions on placement and, of course, which article they go with. PM me if you do not have my e-mail address.

    Do we need to add the trailers stating that all art is the property of the artist and posted with permission? Rights Reserved? What should be added by the submitor and what will be added by the CF staff if anything?

    No. If you look at the bottom of every web page you will see the following text:

    "All works, logos, and trademarks on this site are property of their respective owners. Comments posted herein are also property of their posters."

    This phrase is also an active link to this page:

    http://www.canonfire.com/cf/copyright.php

    Basically, you own whatever you submit, and may submit whatever you submit to Canonfire! elsewhere as you wish. Canonfire! merely retains the right to host a copy of what you have submitted. Anything you wish to use from Canonfire! that was submitted by somebody other than yourself requires the *original artist's/author's* permission to use or re-post, not Canonfire!'s.

    Is there a maximum size for an article? I dont have a lot of words, but a fairly large table, and the Submission pane shows up blank when I hit preview.

    Never mind, I tried to submit again, and it went through.

    Ok, what is the general concensus on the longest an article shoulde be. I have finally edited all of Firepower's submissions on the Churches of the March, and it stands at 25 Pages, including graphics. I can break it up by Church if that is the best... or would you prefer one really long article?

    ok, I have broken it up into 8 articles. At this rate, instead of 50 articles, it will end up being 150. I have submitted 5 this week.

    I'd say no more than 10 pages. I've submitted a couple of large articles, and they have come in around this size. For example, The Knights of Holy Shielding article comes in at 10 pages in WORD. I'd keep it to around 5 pages though for most things, particularly if it is 100% text that you have written in a font size smaller than 12.

    The Churches of the March could easily be done as 2 submissions. I think doing them smaller is a mistake amply illustrated by the fact that it would take 150 articles to put forth the material that you have. That also tells me that the material might be better presented in another way- as a pdf download for example. Besides, the Canonfire! article submissions should cover variety of topics and not just the Gran March(however much some might want it to). Laughing

    If you want to re-submit the church articles as only two submissions then let me know and I'll axe the current ones so you can re-submit them. If you want to consider another format altogether then contact me directly though PM or e-mail.

    Hey Ceb,

    We have considered other formats. I have spoken with Duithcarn concerning an OJ, and that is a good start, but a long ways away. The Gran March site, is for the moment, plagued with problems.

    I also agree that no one (even me) is interested solely in Gran March submissions. However, it is a knowledge repository we would like to use, and the best way to place info in CF! is through submission.

    I will send the Churches in two articles, and they will be sent today.
