This forum is for those who have doubts about the way they shall submit in SoM.
There are many rules concerning how the information has to be presented, the quality of that same information, ortographic regulations, etc., and we need the members acting in accordance.
All because we have to keep the veracity
of the Encyclopedia, and make it look as organized as possible
The quality of your submissions will depend on the way you follow our rules. When you are adding an Element
to the site, please notice that there is visible information that you can read, normally in the form of an "i" button. We also have an extensive guide, which is currently being translated to English. If you do good submissions, they will be allowed on the site and no one will bug you.
If you don't submit according to the rules, a modification request will be sent to you. If you don't do the asked modifications, the submission will be deleted and/or you will lose points.
If you do the same mistakes many times, it's normal if we start deleting your submissions without asking for modifications or not getting your circle upgraded. Many members ask me why they are always kept in the same circle, and that's the answer: your number or points aren't the only important aspect, you also have to show that you are able to submit correctly
. Which is not very difficult, actually.
Our rules are pretty easy.
The ortographic regulations are the biggest problem, normally. Some members do not like when they get a modification request because they wrote "1 - Fear Of The Dark" instead of using the correct form, "1. Fear of the Dark". They get upset because they only need to add a space, or a dot... and when I ask some people to write the artiles or connectors like "a", "and", "the" (with small letters) instead of "A", "And", "The", they almost want to cut my Head
off for being so damn picky.
Sometimes I get answers like... "DO IT YOURSELF,
&#@%#!". We could correct all of these by ourselves, that's true, but if we are about to validate 1000 submissions checking one by one and correcting dots, spaces, connectors, capital letters and stuff, we'll never get outta here...
And the forms used on SoM can't be altered. After All
, who doesn't like a nice
So, what I want to ask from you, is to help us by following the rules carefully. We get tons of bad validations when our rules are so easy
So, I created this forum in case you have something to ask about the validations, suggestions you might have, modification requests you don't understand, doubts about the way you shall submit a band, an album, a review, a biography, a video... I'll be glad to answer.
Thank you for reading!
