  • Posts should have images preferably screenshots or images you either own or have rights to use. We prefer images with an 800px width.

  • Posts should be ready-to-publish. It means that they are written in near-perfect English with little or no grammatical errors. Avoid needless and vague buzzwords, which are considered fluff.
  • Keep your readers in mind. Our community members are experienced web professionals, so make sure to use appropriate words and terminologies that will not offend your readers' intelligence. On the other hand, a guy who knows almost all web design language might not have heard of William Lidwell, so take time to provide useful background information, even as a link.
