Guide to Posting or: How I Stopped Worrying And Submitted A Post

omona party post

IT'S NOT A PARTY POST I JUST WANTED TO RESURRECT THIS barely used GIF

So we had that mod post the other day and some of you wanted a guide to posting so we've written one up for you. Before I go on, I'd just like to remind everyone that the guidelines for submitting posts are in our profile page. But we're going to take it one step further with an example. This is what usually happens for me when I want to make a post:

CUT CUT CUT CUT CUTCollapse )


6. Finally, this is how you add a source. Put it outside the lj-cut so that whoever you got it from can see that you've given them credit. Common internet courtesy, and there was a mod post awhile back about this. I included an embed in this post so I type the name of the source and ...well, you know how to link right?:

HOPE THIS HELPS. if you have questions, don't hesitate to ask. come inside, maybe you have a couple of questions that someone has already asked.

o yea i changed it from "original Korean article" to "original language article" because I just remembered that some translations have been from a wide range of sources from different countries

I still use Deepest Sender (firefox add-on) when posting as LJ's own posting options always give me problems.

i've been making lots of posts lately, and even i learned something from this!! I didn't know photobucket was not recommended. i hope none of my posts have had their pictures disappear?? I'll start using livejournal from now on~

thanks for the post :).

did lj remove the preview button/feature when posting?

anyway, i used to post the articles in my lj first to check if it looks right (especially for the lj-cuts). and then just copy/paste what's in the html version when editing the post. it usually comes out right.
xcherryblossomx 13th-Jan-2013 05:46 am (UTC)
the preview feature is still there but it doesn't work for lj cuts :/

This is entirely off topic, but who's that in your icon, OP? I wanna say Elijah Wood, but that mustache is seriously confusing me...
Will definitely be using this post to double check stuff before submiting, thanks! Lol, love the Kubrick reference. I'm always quoting that film to my friends' great chargrin. XD
turdferguson 13th-Jan-2013 07:45 am (UTC)
it is totally elijah wood

I have a question on how to screen cap tweets the way I see everyone doing it as seen in this post. Could someone tell me how to do that? I wanted to see if I could make a post of few interesting tweets, and I need help.

Those Pictures are from the ygfamilyy tumblr. Either they put them together or bigbangupdates. Both are good sources for big bang info.
