      ICANNWatch Story Submissions

    Thank you for submitting a story for ICANNWatch. Unlike comments, stories are not posted automatically, but are reviewed by the editors before appearing on our homepage.

    The following tips can greatly increase your item's chances of publication:

    • Pick a catchy title, or at least use a verb
    • Make the first paragraph of the submission a good summary of the rest of the article
    • Unless your contribution is entirely your own analysis of an ICANN issue, include at least one relevant and important URL in the first paragraph.
    Generally speaking, our goal is to have only the first paragraph or two of a submission appear on the front page, leaving plenty of space for other stories, so it helps enormously if there is a natural break point between the summary and the main text (which will appear under 'Read More').

    We don't require that all submissions be short, indeed some of your editors are rather long-winded themselves. If, however, your submission is enormously long, we would probably prefer to have you just post a summary with a link to the full text. If you do not have a way of hosting the full text, please e-mail us a copy as we may be prepared to host it for you.

    If you can submit HTML text, that makes our lives easier (but please only simple HTML, not MS junk with lots of style codes!). If you can't, don't worry about it -- just send in plain text and we'll add the codes for you.

    We like signed contributions from logged in users, as it adds to the sense of community. However, if you wish to be anonymous, feel free to leave the identifying fields blank.

    Your Name (Leave Blank to be Anonymous)

    Your Email or Homepage (Where Users Can Contact You)

    Subject (Be Descriptive, Clear and Simple!)

    (bad subjects='Check This Out!' or 'An Article'. We get many submissions each day, and if yours isn't clear, it will be deleted.)

    Topic and Section

    (Almost everything should go under Articles)

    The Scoop (HTML is fine, but double check those URLs and HTML tags!)

    (Are you sure you included a URL? Didja test them for typos?)

    Submission format

    (You must preview once, provide a subject, some text, and a topic before you can submit)
