How To Publish A New Article Or Seed On NewsTalkers

It has come to my attention that some members do not know how to post an Article or Seed on the new NewsTalkers platform.   

A review of the NewsTalkers Help Videos reveals instructions for posting new contributions on this site is not discussed in any of them at this time. NT Resident Advisor, Perrie Halpern, has been advised of the omission and she said the information will be included in the videos as soon as it is possible to implement the planned video update, pending the completion of  site updates, revisions and improvements.    

Meanwhile the below instructions have been posted on a separate page of the NewsTalkers Community Group where they will remain permanently for future reference.

I has one helluva time getting this article to post the way I wanted it to look. I made the mistake of trying to use the 'Headline' feature to give part of the text a different look.

DON'T EVER DO THAT!!!! 

If you do every word on the text will be capitalized. They won't be capitalized when you type it, but they WILL be capitalized when you post it!

Thanks, Jerry V., as a certified idiot and part-time moron, it is comforting to know that I can turn to you, 11 times per day for help. Not only have you helped me with how to post my "MASTERPIECES". You have been most helpful with finding my shoes, keys, even the soap in the shower. Again, I thank you for that.  We have been friends since you very a little girl writing racy things on Newsvine.com, and, I was a man attracted to little girls like Maurice Chevalier.

I just want to say how thankful I am that you are there and I am here.

PROBLEM:  I have been posting to "My Discussion", should I repost these "Must Read" articles to "Blog", or, simply "Delete", then, quietly slip away and return to FACEBOOK when I am released from "Facebook Jail"?
