There seems to be a lot of inconsistency with how news items are posted to MP. I would like to propose recommended standard for all posts site wide (as below). What does everyone think of the proposal? Fine as is, need changes, or ideas for a better way of achieving consistency? ---- In scope: Sitewide, any article of news posted by a to MP, using the create new thread button. Out-of-scope: Posting of articles from BoardingArea blogs by automated means. Recommendations: All such posts should include; 1. Link to Source Article (Mandatory) 2. A Recap or Quote from the Article (Mandatory), placed within a quote box. The quote or recap should only include enough information to give a good overview of the story. It should never be a copy and paste of the entire article body. 3. Your Comments or Insights (Optional, but recommended) Best practice example: The following is an example of how conforming new threads would look: Steps to impliment: A new thread is created and set as a sticky at the top of Newsstand, outlining the expected format for such articles. Milepoint Guides encouraged to clean up non-conforming posts, and alert the OP by way of the conversation feature to the issue and provide a link to the sticky post. NB: This should be required less and less as members become used to the minimum standard.
