I have an announcement to post to the site. How do I do this?
Once you have registered and are logged in, post your announcement as a story to the Computers and Writing homepage community weblog. If this is your first time posting, your post will go through site moderation.
Can I post in plain text or do I have to use HTML?
When creating a story, forum topic, or other content, you'll be asked to choose between Filtered HTML (default) or Full HTML. The Filtered HTML setting is for plain text, but you may also use some HTML formatting such as emphasis, blockquotes, and hypertext links. For fancier formatting, use the Full HTML option, but make sure the HTML is well-formed. Do not use Word to generate HTML.
