It's October 1st, and as I said in a previous rules blog, a new rule is now in effect for the OC tags, but with a slight change suggested.

OC Tag

You have 30 minutes after adding the Category:OC to a page to add it to the User Submissions page, or your the tag will be removed and you will be warned.

Failure to add a tag a second time will result in a 1 day ban. Following that it will double in length each time (2 days, 4 days, 6 days, etc.)

I spent a good day searching through the Submissions page and the OC category page, checking both lists against each other and I removed about 286 pages that were tagged as OC but not on the Submissions page. Ah, see? That's why I'm so strict about this. It cost me valuable time to fix a massive problem and I do not want to see it happening again.

Article Listing

You have 30 minutes to add a story you upload to this site to the Article Listing page or you will be warned. Failure to do so three times will result in a 3 day ban. Following that it will double in length each time (6 days, 12 days, 24 days, etc.)

It's seriously not that hard to do and I will tell you how to modify each page now.

Adding to the User Submissions Page

To properly add you and your pages to the User Submissions page, edit the entire page and add your name in alphabetical order on the list (leaving mine at the top always) and add your stories in underneath. If you wish to have people edit your pages, and/or to what degree, put that bit above your stories but under your name.

Confused? It ALWAYS helps to look at the Source tap on the Editor. It lets you see the coding that makes things do what they do. That's how I learned to quickly edit.

  • Here's a quick and dirty method to add your name as a header on the Submissions page:

==YOUR USERNAME== will turn it into a header. Two equal signs. It's as simple as that.

  • To add a link in quickly and easily:

If your page name is My Spiffy Dog, then you would type it like [[My Spiffy Dog]], which would make it into a hypertext link. Simple, yes? Yes.
