Lonespark asked about whether articles here are linked to in the weekend post the answer is more or less “oops”. Yeah, they should be, and this weekend I’ll just link to last weeks one to make up for not doing it this weekend.
We’re getting visitors from two forums, A Meeting of Minds and AMF, we probably have been for over a fortnight, but I’m sometimes slow to notice changes in traffic. Regardless, welcome here visitor type people.
There is no submission deadline for articles and open thread suggestions. Send them any time. Please. They do not have to be Srs Bzns topics, either. The Eternal Dilemma Of Hot Dogs versus Hot Dog Buns is a perfectly good open thread topic.
The Submission Deadline for the weekend post is 20:00 (8PM) US Eastern Time (UTC-5) Saturday.
Anyone who has submissions for the weekend post should send them in. Some people wonder if they really deserve to be in the post. The answer to that is always the same: You do. So try not to be afraid and do try to send in submissions if you have them.
The sections of the post are as follows:
Any denizen of the Slacktiverse who has posted an article to their own website since they last submitted to a weekend post is invited, enticed, strongly encouraged, and cajoled to send a short summary of that article along with its permalink to the group email. That summary and link will be included in the next weekend blogaround. This will help to keep members of our community aware of the many excellent websites hosted by other members.
Remember, this is since you last submitted to a weekend post, not since the last weekend post. For example, if the last time you submitted was a month ago, everything you wrote since then is fair game.
Readers of The Slacktiverse can send short summaries of, and permalinks to, articles that they feel might be of interest to other readers. These should be sent, as you might expect, to the group email.
Anyone who knows of a worthy cause or important petition should send a short description of the petition/cause along with its url to the group email.
