Dmitri,
smiley - lurk
It's been a decade since I've been active on HooToo, but I want to change that by coming back in and contributing.
smiley - biro
As the title suggests, I have writings to contribute. May I come to you to submit items?
smiley - huh
Also, what's the maximum "character count" for a single posting, so I don't crack a page in the process? I don't know if you remember, but there was a time I "stretched" a Thread at Lil's Atelier beyond the boundaries of the visible page / screen. Don't want to be a Repeat Offender...

Hi. smiley - smiley

You can submit Stuff to the h2g2 Post by emailing it to postteamhg-at-gmail-dot-com.

If you don't use a Word program that has .docx docs, please send the material in the body of the text or as a Notepad .txt doc.

If you write in GuideML, that will be particularly welcome. smiley - smiley Otherwise, I have to do it. smiley - winkeye

Length: please keep it around 1000-1200 words per submission. We'll see how we go from there.

We also really like photos, photoessays, and short articles with links to your Youtube videos, if you make them.

If you have a photo or drawing to go with your writing, send it along. Remember that it has to be *your* photo.

And no smileys in the text, please!

When you send things, keep in mind that the turnaround time is about 3 weeks - that means that right now, we're collecting Stuff for 10 August.

Any other questions, let me know!

smiley - dragon

PS Did you contribute to the Post before, B4? Did you have an archive, is what I'm wondering? (I'm always finding archives...)

Great! You rediscovered what used to be me...

I'll break the Story into bite-size pieces, and have some photos inserted into the MS Word .docx file. It's title is "Into You" and is a kind of love story with strange circumstances surrounding it.

There's also a set of Poetry that I'd like to provide, and I may be able to gen up some filigree touches to go with them.

Well then... this is a Work In Progress! Thank you for providing the Guidelines.

For the HooToo ML, that would only account for any formatting I'd like for Titles, emphasis, and page spacing/location, correct?

Er...no! Don't send photos in a Word doc! smiley - yikes

I won't be able to use them that way.

Word doc's okay for text - but, tell you what, it's better if you send it in the email body. People tend to overformat. Or in Notepad.

Photos: .jpg type, as email attachment, with descriptive title, please. And 600 pixels wide. (If you send me a huge one, I'll resize it, but please don't send tiny ones.)

If you can write GuideML, fine - that's to mark paragraphs, italics, titles, etc. But if you can't, no worries - I'll fix it. smiley - smiley

Serials in bite-sized pieces are very welcome!

Yowzah! Okay. Photos separately, labeled, where in content location (if applicable), less than 600 pixels wide, but no tiny ones (or it'll be pixelated).

I'll dive back into the GuideML guide...uh...yeah, that... and reacquaint myself with the rules and mark-up notations.

To let you know, the Story I propose to submit is a wee bit over 18,000 Words. I'll ensure it'll 'break down' into logical chunks with natural 'pauses' for the next edition to hit The Post. By my calculators calcul-- Really? I was gonna... Anyway, it'll be about 15-16 installments. That would be a pretty good run, huh?
smiley - cool

smiley - laugh That would be fine. By 10 August, the current serialised story will be reaching its grand finale - we can start another one at the same time! smiley - smiley

And boy, will I appreciate you if you do your own GuideMLing. smiley - winkeye Only the elite do that.
