Guidelines on postings:
As you all should know, I now allow anyone to post something to the codewolf.com site. However, I should probably post a few guidelines so you'll know what goes on behind the scenes:
Post anything you found interesting
What types of posts do you want?
Almost anything goes here. If you found a site interesting, or just have something to say, POST IT! Great posts are things that aren't found on the more popular sites, something that is interesting: interesting science, strange people, strange places, odd happenings. Basically, if you read this site, and you found another site to be interesting, someone else reading the site will also find it interesting. Thousands and thousands of different people from all over the world look at this site every day. Very few post comments, but you can be sure that if you found it interesting enough to look at, someone else will as well, so POST IT!
Why don't I see my post immediately?
Anything you post goes into a queue. I review this queue of stories and edit the content as needed. I avoid editing your actual post unless it will mess up the site format. When I approve it, the post appears. Usually a wait of 4-6 hours is typical, sometimes you may see the post in a few minutes. Whatever name you use for the post is used in my credit rankings.
Do I have to use my name?
Of course not. I only track what has been submitted. I will remove any reference to a full name (using only your first name for privacy reasons). I never use email addresses unless you specifically request a response. I suggest using some alias, and sticking with it. I will be implementing a log in for people. If you post using that alias, I will track that name and it may be used in the near future for additional posting "powers".
What is NSFW?
NSFW - "Not Safe For Work" - anything that shows a female/male in any type of seductive pose. Not just porn. People may get fired for looking at images of seductive women, women in bathing suits. Silly, yes, but I don't want anyone getting fired here. I don't post anything on the main site but words that may be "NSFW" if you think that words may get you fired, don't view this site at work. I and others, will, and do often, use words like Shit, Piss, Fuck, Cunt, Cocksucker, Motherfucker and Tits. Deal with it, it may be vulgar, but it's not porn and any adult should be able to deal with it without being offended. People very often insult each other in the comments. Don't be offended by this, it's normal. People are letting off steam, and trolling. It's a normal part of dealing with others on the internet and should be accepted as such, nothing more.
On another note: this entire site should be considered NSFW - comments and links here are many times NSFW - if you get fired for viewing this site, you probably shouldn't have been surfing the web at work, so too bad, I have a team of lawyers and you don't.
Why was my post rejected?
Your posts are reviewed by me (codewolf). I rarely reject a post based on content alone since anything goes on this site, but I do have final say on the things posted to the site. Usually if something you post does not get to the front page, it's probably for one of the following reasons:
Some things I do approve of , surprisingly:
Self-promotion - if you have your own site and want some free exposure, please post your link! I'm happy to help out other website developers (as long as you aren't selling snake oil, anything goes!)
Anti-anything-codewolf-believes-in links, as you know, I will post anything that may oppose my beliefs or values, I don't like suppression of ideas just because I don't like it. So, I'd be a hypocrite if I didn't allow others to post sites that support their personal views!
