This topic will give you an overview of how you should format your news articles to be consistent.
  1. Topic Title: News-Category: News Title
    News-Category is usually optional, but it is recommended
    If your News Title does not fit, then shorten it, removing as many words as it takes to fit, and keep coherency.
    For example, if your topic is "Cow Escapes Meat Plant, Dodges Cars, Train", you should title the topic "ODD: Cow Escapes Meat Plant".
  2. The Post: Put the first paragraph (or blurb) from news webpage in italics, and if you want to quote more, put them in [QUOTE] tags. And after that skip two lines, post the link. Skip two more lines, and put your comments on the news topic.

    Keep in mind that if you are quoting from the news, it is recommended that you only quote the first one or two paragraphs, unless the news webpage requires a membership (NY times for example)
For an example, look at ODD: Cow Escapes Meat Plant, Dodges Cars, Train

As much as I do follow the format, I'm not sure many other people care. stongue.gif
