Posting Instructions

Special Topics

Special topics is a place for stories that are not posted on astro-ph to be suggested for discussion (e.g., press releases). Any registered user of the site can post a special topic. If a copy of the astro-ph posting relating to the press release is on the coffee website already, please vote that paper up rather than posting a special topic.

  • Log in to the website, or click the “Site Admin” link on the right hand side if you are already logged in.
      If you do not have an account, you must create one:

    • Click on the “Register” link on the right-hand side of the page
    • Make an account. I will give you the appropriate posting permissions ASAP.
  • Click on the “Posts” header on the left, then “Add New.”
  • Paste your discussion agenda to the post body and add a title to the post. Web addresses will automatically become hyperlinks if they begin with “http://”, otherwise you should create the hyperlinks using the “link” button.
  • VERY IMPORTANT: Mark the “Special Topics” category checkbox on the right hand side. If you do not do this, your post will not appear!
  • Click the “Publish” button on the right-hand side of the page. Your post will automatically have a single vote and thus automatically appears in the agenda!

The server will automatically send out a copy of the custom agenda to the specified mailing lists before the discussion, just as it does for the regular discussions. If person running the event is negligent and forgets it’ll just send out a generic reminder e-mail.
