    Hello All,

    I'm accepting articles for the first issue of the FidoGazette as editor.
    A few guidelines:

    - When submitting an article, please make sure it is a plain ASCII file and put the following information at the top of your article:

    <your name>
    <Fido address>
    <Article title>

    Make sure that no line goes over 60 characters. Save the file using the 8.3 filename format. You can use the file extension as a catagory to allow the newsletter software to process and place your article in the right spot.

    Here's the following categories:

    Please keep articles of a G-rated nature. I reserve the right to approve or deny any article submitted with or without notice.

    To get your article to me:

    -- Netmail: send your article as part of your netmail messasge to me at 1:18/200 with the subject line of "FidoGazette Submission". If you crash my system with your netmail, you can file attach it but it's safest to put your article inline.

    -- Email: Send your article to sysop@outpostbbs.net with the subject line of "FidoGazette Submission".

    -- FTP: You can use anonymopus ftp to bbs.outpostbbs.net and drop your article off in /incoming. Please let me know via a post in here, netmail or email that you dropped off an article.

    Improperly formatted and/or credited articles will be deleted.

    I am going to wait until Friday, January 14 and then publish the newsletter on Monday, January 17.

    I look forward to reading your content!
