Introduction We have made many more improvements to the guide system. Please read this carefully to understand how it will all work. Please resubmit your guides (simple copy and paste) using this new system so we can keep everything organized. The old content will be available for you for a bit in the Temporary Forum so you can transition your content over. To quickly see your submitted content, check your profile. There is a new tab we just added that shows a collection of all the content you've submitted on the website. How do I get started writing a guide? You have to create your guide using the Main Site Editor, which you can find here: http://www.playdota.com/add/guide. When you click the OK button, the guide will be posted in "Draft Mode" and then a thread will be created for it in the Draft Guides subforum. How does commenting work? Users can comment on your guides through the main site or through the forum thread. They both share the same data. How do I update and improve my guide? After you submit your guide on the main site and a thread is created for it in the forum, you are then free to either use the site editor directly or just edit your thread. The data is shared between both, so you can use whichever mode you prefer. What is the purpose of the Draft mode? It is to allow users to get help from other members as they are working on their guide. Voting on your guide will not begin until it is out of draft phase. When and How should I publish my guide so it is no longer in Draft Mode? You should not keep your guide in Draft for too long. Once you feel your guide is ready for moderator approval, you will have to get it approved by the Guides Team to get it published on the main site. To get it approved, these requirements has to be fullfilled: The guide must be "complete", meaning the basics of a guide must be present. Feel free to add more sections after it has been published though. All images used must be hosted on PlayDotA.com. If you require images not available here, you can upload them to your Personal Album and link them from there. No broken images or other bugs. To put your guide up for approval, post a link to it in this thread. You must use the link to the main site version of the guide and not to the thread. When I publish my guide, will I lose all the comments for it? No, when you publish your guide, it will be automatically upgraded to the Published Guides section, with all comments intact.
