How to Get Promoted (On Jeffco Pols)

  • 2 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Here’s a quick refresher course for how to get your diaries promoted to the front page and how to get your banned. Click below for more:

HOW TO GET YOUR DIARY PROMOTED

The best diaries to promote are those that are both relevant and require little editing for the administrators of the site. You are MUCH more likely to see your diary promoted, for example, if you follow these simple suggestions:

1. Make the headline relevant and short (and please, not in all caps). All caps is for BREAKING NEWS only. Don’t write two sentences in the headline, and please try to capitalize all of the words in the headline.

2. Where’s the link? Don’t just talk about a story that you read in the Denver Post – provide the link. The whole point of these here internet tubes is to share information. If you don’t know how to include the link, it’s simple:

Creating Links

Follow this formula and we will all be happy.

3. Don’t post the whole story Cut and paste relevant parts. Don’t cut and paste the whole damn thing. Not only is that a copyright violation, but nobody wants to read it. Use ellipses (…) to indicate that you are citing two different sections of the story. Use blockquotes to indicate that you are citing something, and not writing something.

Blockquotes

4. Tie your post back into Jeferson County and Politics. This is Jeffco Pols – you can discuss Presidential politics because it affects Colorado and Jefferson County, but please try to keep it local. If you want to talk about something in another state, it had better be REALLY interesting or have some relation to JeffCo. If you want to talk about something other than politics, it had better be good. But please, stick to politics.

5. Can’t cite it? Don’t write it. If you can’t cite, with links, a detailed accusation about something…don’t write it here. If you want to float a rumor, you ABSOLUTELY MUST have some substance behind it. Not only will a post like that not be promoted, it will be deleted. We are not the place for you to attempt to float negative, damaging rumors about candidates, no matter the party. We will be diligent about this, and you will be banned from the site. We’re not getting sued over some rumor you tried to start.

6. Can’t write nice? Don’t write at all. Please, no vulgarity or unnecessary and childish name-calling. Your post will disappear faster than a can of hair spray in Adele Arakawa’s medicine cabinet, and you’ll be on your way to getting banned from the site.

Thanks all. Please feel free to suggest your own community rules below. This is your world – we just lord over it.

  1. Who decides if a Jeffco Human Services Investigator who is caught falsifying case information is to be prosecuted or not?  Is it possible that this could happen without prosecution?  Yes.  Has anyone been prosecuted for this act, falsifying official information, while trying to get benefits?  Yes.  Why is there a pass for a Jeffco employee?  Why is the law different for different people?

    1. Why is there a pass for Jeffco employees? Because it would show a lack of supervision! One would still want to see them or their aquitances at the “barbecue”!

       We all condone things we believe that are okay. Forget justice,truth and integrity. It’ an ideal right?
