    Exclamation Please Read Before Starting A New Thread: How To Post Your Suggested Article

    So you have discovered a good article on the net that you think others would like to read on GMInsidenews.

    The only problem now is you don't know what to do with it?

    Here's a simple guide to help you post your suggested article in the right place:



    Is the article a GM corporate, brand or product news item, a GM product review or important general automotive industry news?

    If so, please post it in a new thread in the 'Suggest a News Article' page.


    Is the article related to GM's competition, such as Ford, BMW and Toyota?

    If it's important breaking corporate, brand or product news or a quality product review please post it in a new thread in the 'Suggest a News Article' page.


    Is the article related to GM, it's competition or the automotive industry, but isn't of a newsworthy nature, such as a personal opinion blog, a historic review or of a light-hearted nature? Is it competiton news that you don't believe will be moved to the news room?

    If so please post the article in a new thread in one of our many discussion forums, from the 'General Car Lounge', to the GM brand discussion pages and the competition brand pages below them.


    NOTE: Please look and see if your article has already been posted on the site before posting yours.

    Also, please don't post subscription content. Not point posting an article no one else can read when they click on the link.



    Here's is a simple guide to help you post your article as neatly as possible.

    It doesn't have to be exact, but the more presentable it is the better.






    Or if you want it to look more professional follow these easy to follow steps:



    Title of Article <----- Size 5 font
    Brief preview of the article. <----Bold, Italic, normal size
    website address <----- Bold <"insert link function" add full hyperlink and name the link after the website, NOT the article title>
    [BLANK SPACE]
    CENTERED PREVIEW IMAGE <"insert image" right click on an appropriate picture, select "copy image location" and then click "insert image" then paste the link, Center the picture>
    [BLANK SPACE]
    Article <---- No formatting (eg, adding bold to sections you find interesting), no editorializing <Do not post full article -- 1/3 to 1/2>






    Thanks for your assistance.

    Hi,

    We've been finding of late that members who regularly suggest articles are not following the simply guidelines above.

    If you can just spend just a little bit more time when posting your suggested thread it will make life a lot easier for our staff and help ensure your thread gets posted in the news room and not sent to the dump.

    Thanks for your assistance.
