So you’d like to contribute to the Daily Dose. Awesome! First thing you need to is register an account with us — don’t worry, we won’t redistribute your personal info or send you any spam — and follow the prompts from there. Although we encourage our contributors to use their real names it’s not absolutely required, but remember: if you want your contribution to be published we will need a valid email address where we can contact you. Your email address is not made public.
- Don’t be an ass. This should be enough for most people, but if you need clarification, keep reading.
- Racism, bigotry, threats of violence and other hate-filled language is strictly prohibited.
- No personal attacks or revealing of private information is tolerated. This is grounds for immediate banning.
- Keep foul language to a minimum. Don’t post porn.
- You should feel free to promote concerts, openings, etc that are likely to be of interest to our readers. But if you’re a venue or band that does this regularly, it’d be sweet if you’d consider advertising with us as well.
- No posting about underground shows, unless given permission by the hosts.
- Don’t plagarize. Credit photos and other images, and remove them if you’re asked to take them down. Use the flickr system for photos, or we might have to take them down.
- Editors may promote diaries to the main blog, at-will. We might edit for format, spelling, grammar and such. (Please email us if you have a diary you’d like us to promote.)
The first few rules are the most obvious and important, and have been swiped from our cousins at RIFuture, for having worked swimmingly for them for the last year and a half.
We’ll try to maintain the site as an open forum for bloggers of all sorts, but in the end, we reserve authority to remove posts as we see fit.
Please review the PPD Guide to Style before you start posting.
Alright now, get your creative juices flowing and start letting us know what’s happening, what’s the word on the street, or if you really want to just let us know that you think we suck. I can’t guarantee that we’ll stop sucking but at least you’ll feel better about yourself.
