    Check the front page, if we thinks it's news, we'll post it. No need to start a thread as well :)

    basically, we will check it out. Judge if it is news worthy or not, most things, within reason, are. Check if it has been posted before (quite a lot of submitted stuff has already been posted a day or 2 earlier) and make sure it has a news source. Articles without sources don't get posted.
    Plus it may take a few hours for a news poster to be online, and be able to post

    if you post allot and/or regularly then you should know the format, presentation etc of how we like it.
    It would help us allot if it could be submitted in the same format, layout etc. This would help speed things up.

    Re: well

    How do you know you submitted it before anyone else?

    When I post news I go to my sources before I check to see what's submitted by users. Then I'll check what users have submitted. If the same story is submitted by 2 or more users, I 'thank' the person who got the story in 1st.
