Hi all,
I'm happy to announce that we can now pay for articles. I know it's time consuming to sit down and write, and edit the photos, etc., so I've decided to offer a small incentive to get more content on the site. From now on we can offer $40 USD or a one-year's Platinum Membership for submitting and getting an article approved for the site. Articles have to be about military aviation and/or aviation photography. Here are some guidelines:

1) Articles have to be original. Please do not cut and paste articles from anywhere else on the web or print, including any parts that may support and enhance your article. Of course, quoting with full credit is permissible. There are many ways to check for plagarism, and your article has to pass the tests.

2) Articles and photos cannot appear on any other website for a period of 30 days after they are published here. Of course, if you're using photos already in the database then that's okay. After that you can do whatever you like. It's your article.

3) Articles become a part of the site and you cannot ask for it to be removed at a later time.

4) Articles have to be at least 500 words in length.

I may have to add some other rules as we go along but that's all I can think of for now. Please let me know if I should add any other criteria and please let me know what you think. Thanks.

Hi Ray,

First of all, great idea. There have been some superb articles posted to Airfighters over the last few years and it is good to see you encouraging further contributions in this way. I believe that every photographer who contributes here has some favourtite subject which they could submit as an article, it is just having the time and incentive to put the proverbial pen to paper. I think you have added to the incentive aspect anyway

Would you accept an article based upon a previous contribution to another non-aviation board which has since been deleted? It would have to be re-written in far more detail to appeal to this site's more discerning audience and would use many photos from the database.

Thanks

Michael

Hi Michael,
Absolutely. Feel free to submit it. Thanks, I hope it's enticing enough to get people to contribute as much as possible.
