View Full Version : Guidelines for posting Competition Announcements/roll call/results

Hi gang... With the competition season starting up again I wanted to repost the guidelines that we would like you all to follow when posting competition announcements, roll calls and results. This is in the stickie above, but who reads the stickies :-D

Gang... Please pay attention to item #1...

#1--Please "title" threads completely and accurately.
If we are posting about an event--include the city/state. That is how most people identify them. There are about a zillion "Pig Jams" a year! Take a moment and look to see if a thread exists for your event. Threads do not "go away" here like they do elsewhere! Your new post will bring them right back to the top again! http://dev.bbq-brethren.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_lol.gif Use the prefixes for this forum to make the title stand out and keep things organized.
Contest Announcements can be put up as soon as a contest is official.
Roll calls no sooner than 4 weeks out.

I'd like to suggest a format for threads about specific competitions to make sure that the requested information is included...

<Name_of_competition>, <Location_of_competition> - <Dates_of_competition>

Where Name_of_competition is the name that shows up in the sanctioning body's listings, Location_of_competition includes the city AND state as show in the listing, and Dates_of_competition includes the year since many of these events happen every year.

Thanks in advance!

I hope more Brethren read this thread as I like not having to google most of the posted names - as very few post with the CITY/STATE in the threads - that would be nice and dreamy to start seeing more with city and state in the post...

Now that comp season is ramping up, please read the guidelines in the first post of this thread BEFORE posting a competition announcement, roll call or results thread.
