Guidelines

The Really Short Version:

is a writers' community.  A writers' community is a place where people write for passion and improvement, read for entertainment & understanding, and discuss for useful interaction.

Note: Articles written for commercial purposes or for link-building would not fit into the above definition of 'writers' community' and therefore would not be allowed on .com.

Articles that you submit to must be original material that is solely owned by you.

Lately we've been receiving a lot of articles with major grammatical errors such as those found in spun articles.  If you repeatedly submit articles with major grammatical errors, your account will be closed and your articles removed.

Formatting guidelines:

  • Do not repeat the title at the top of the article body.
  • Do not put your name or business name in the title of the article.
  • Do not put quotes around the title of the article.
  • 3 self-serving links, maximum, and they must be located at the end of each article.
  • Do not use redirected links.
  • Do not use affiliate links in your article or your bio.
  • Do not over-use formatting options like bold or font color.
  • Do not submit a part article and require the reader to click thru to finish reading.
  • Disallowed Subject Matter:

does not allow articles about Search Engine Optimization, Link Building, Affiliate Marketing, Multi-Level Marketing, Money-Making Schemes, Paid Surveys, Hacking, Cracking, Gambling, Sexual Enhancement, Article Spinning, Replica Products, Escorts or articles which give instruction for illegal activity.   does not allow articles which direct readers to a page which exist for the primary purpose of gathering the reader's contact information. requires that all articles be written in English.  If you submit articles which are disallowed, your articles may be moved to one of our network sites which allow such articles, or your account may be closed.

 If you write about a topic which is known to be a high-spam topic, your article may be rejected on removed completely.  If all you can write about is high-spam topics, your account may be closed.

Grudge articles, articles intended to smear other entities whether they are a business or personal, are not allowed.  Articles which incite hatred or violence, against any entity, are not allow.

Articles created using automated methods, such as article spinning, are not allowed.  If it is detected that a member is using automated content generation, that member's account will be closed without warning.

 Allowed HTML:

While allows HTML to be used in articles displayed on , typically articles are formatted to only allow certain HTML markup.  The allowed markup includes:

'<br />', '<hr />', '<img>', '<b></b>', '<i></i>', '<u></u>', '<strong></strong>','<em></em>', '<small></small>','<a></a>','<ol><li></li></ol>','<ul><li></li></ul>', '<blockquote></blockquote>''

Div’s and p’s used for paragraph breaks are usually replaced with double line breaks (br's) for paragraph breaks.

Images:

Images are allowed in articles if the author of the article has appropriate permission to publish the images.  Author assumes full responsibility for copyright of images which appear within his or her articles.

Images are not allowed to be hot-linked or hosted from another server outside of the .com domain.

Images of authors are allowed for in the profile picture on each account.  Authors are not allowed to bypass this and post their image within the article or author bio.

Bio’s (Resource Box):

encourages you to put your self-serving links in your bio and not at the end of your articles.  This is because we sometimes break long articles into pages, and therefore links at the end of the article will not appear until the last page.  Since the bio will appear at the end of each page, the links will appear on every page of the article.

  • Bio’s must be written in 3rd person.
  • Bio’s must primarily be about you.
  • Bio’s must contain no more than 2 links.
