Default Guide to posting news - The basics

We thought it would be good to have a little guide to news posting as we have opened up news posting to all our forum members.

News posting is quite simple and we keep to a simple format at Rage3D.

Like every other news website we beginning by introducing the article with it's main topic, where and by who it was written. You can also offer your own opinion on the article likes what makes it worthwhile to read. Try to keep a neutral tone.

You can link the article within your introduction or just provide a direct link. To link a specific text you do the follow [ url=http:\\www.newstory.url ]text here[ /url ]. If you want to just post a direct link you can just paste the url and VB will automatically hyperlink it.

Finally quote a small portion of the article that you find relevant. You can quote the material by surrounding it with the following tag:

[newsquote]something someone has said[/newsquote]

This would create the style of quote we use for news items, such as:
This would create the style of quote we use for news items

That's all there is to it! It would be a great benefit to us as it would save us time from having to edit posts. Thanks for your support and participation!
