10 Commandments for Columnists
As OWW.com continues to grow at an alarming rate, I began to come to the conclusion that I needed to find more effective ways to do some of the things that we do on the World’s largest wrestling website. Most of our columnists have become irritatingly familiar with our “10 Commandments For Columnists“ and those rules will undoubtedly stay the same, and possibly get even tighter — however there is hope for the younger, less-experienced journalists out there.
The new policy will interact directly with the OnlineWorldofWrestling.com Forums. “We have Forums?” you may be asking yourself. Well the answer is YES, we have Forums! — Click here to find out how to access them!.
Columnists are encouraged to submit their work on a special section set up on the OWW Forum specifically created for OWW Columnists. This section will be closely monitored by the respective Forum Administrators as well as specially appointed OWW Editors. The 10 Commandments for Columnists have been rewritten and permanently posted in the Forums and all of the rules will be in full effect. Columns that blatantly violate our most important policies risk the possibility of being deleted by the moderators. Basically the only things that will get your columns deleted from the Forums is excessive profanity (never use the F-word, Sh-word, or B-word) or blatant defamation of someone’s character — oh yeah, and plagiarism. DO NOT PLAGERISE! At the end of each week, a select few of the more impressive columns will be chosen to be posted on the main page of OnlineWorldofWrestling.com — we believe this will give writers something to work for, and in turn, decrease the workload for myself and the editors. The Forum will serve as a host for all of the columns, and readers will be able to log onto the Forums and read them all and also submit feedback instantaneously. A word of advice: to increase your chances of having your column featured on OWW, it is in your best interest to read and respect the 10 Commandments as if it were your bible. The most important thing you can do is research your topic and edit your column properly before submitting. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us at the addresses below:
