Submitting Post Ideas Or News To Techdirt
from the just-a-reminder dept
Over the years we’ve certainly grown a lot, and so, we have lots of new readers and we get a ton of stories submitted — which is great — but I wanted to run a quick post reminding people that the best way to submit a story is to use the story submission page. This makes it easy to track, manage and format story submissions. It is, by far, the best way to submit a story. Also, when submitting a story, please make sure to include a title (preferably a descriptive one). It also helps to give a brief description of the story and why you think it’s interesting — or, if you’re ambitious, feel free to write a thorough analysis yourself. Submissions with no title, or just links often get ignored in the pile. If something is particularly urgent, alerting us via a message directed at our Twitter account can work as well, but there’s a lot of noise there, and sometimes stories get lost, so use the submission page as well. We’re thrilled that so many people want to help out and participate in the community here, so thanks to our fans for all those great story submissions. These days, we get probably three times as many good story submissions as we can write up, so we apologize if we don’t cover everything sent in, but the quality of story submissions has grown quite a bit in the last few years, and it helps keep this site dynamic and interesting — so thanks to everyone for pitching in.
