Pop Quiz, Jack:  How many of you noticed this:

Okay.  So how many of you actually clicked it?  Yah, that’s what we thought.  For the rest of you, it’s exactly what it looks like: a link to our brand spankin’ new Submissions Page!

Curious yet?  Read on….

Yes, we’re opening up our pearly gates for submissions from you, our dear reader.  What this page does is walk you through submitted a link, a media file, or an original article/review/humor piece, etc., which will then be considered for posting on our front page (with your name all over it, no less).  Alternately you can go here to see what links other members have submitted, comment on upcoming posts, or to read a more detailed description of how to post.  Oh, that’s right…I said ‘members’.  Yes, due to spam and other concerns this submission form is only open to registered (and logged in) members.  Like always, we dont’ use your information for anything outside the very rare e-mail update, so there’s no reason not to register!

So submit something already!  We thought it was time we made our little Buddha more of a community, and we want to include you in our little web endeavor since, after all, you’re the reason we’re still here (a fact for which we are immensely grateful). 

Just a couple of other points: 

You can submit sites/videos/articles that you think would fit with our style, or you can submit your own original material.  We’re always looking for new stuff (and who doesn’t like having new stuff before anyone else?), so original content from you would make this super cool.  If you are submitting your own material, don’t be shy about letting us know you made it.

And lastly (but certainly not leastly) as we go forward, we’ll be looking at those users who consistently submit great stuff as potential full-time contributors on El Buddha.  Yup, consider it really wide open casting call. 

Good luck, and we can’t wait to see what you submit!.

    Did you, by any chance, post that because of the retarded e-mail I sent you?

    Naw, it’d been on our back burner for a while now. It was just recently that we came up with the most effective way to do it.

    this makes it easier for my link suggestions to be ignored. sweet.

    Nah, this is our way of admitting we’ve been bad about submissions from you fine folk.  Due to the sheer volume of e-mail we get on a daily basis, links are sometimes lost in the shuffle. 

    A lot of times I won’t see your forum subs for quite some time, and that’s 100% my fault. 

    With this format, not only are they all collected in an area that we look at many, many times a day, it also allows members to rate each others posts, offer suggestions on the write-up, etc.  And of course, this format will allow submissions to be already set up in our format, which makes it simpler for us.

    I hope my suggestions get in….  wink
