You're all set (and I saw your post - very nice!), but if you want to make any edits I can open it up again if you'd like.

Nope, I'm fine. Thanks! Nice huh? Cool! Considering I wrote it in the wee hours after almost no sleep that's sweet of you to say so. I did think about it for quite a while before I wrote my piece, about what I wanted to write about. So it was kind of in my brain when I sat down to write it.

I've updated the rules to make the entry guidelines clearer and easy to follow. Good luck!

What if it has flawless syntax, grammar, imagery, punctuation, and composition but is devoid of useful content? I'm rather good at those .....

A 65KB cap? Is there like a definite word limit? What about pictures we plan on including (not huge, but little 500px wide shots) to demonstrate a point.

Maybe I am making a book where others are making posts. >_>;

65k is 65000 characters, so if you take formatting into consideration and assume the average word length is 5, then you'll be able to write up to 10,000 words. Include as many pictures as you'd like! If you write a book, you might want to insert lines where you want page breaks to be, and we will then format the article using our homepage pagination system so that it's easy to read and navigate by users!

Like this one: Fixing Front and Back Focus - Introduction

Oooh, goodie. My limitations are far less than I initially thought.

Thankfully I used to be a journalism major before I was a photography major so I will be boiling down text to the lowest common denominator.

It looks like some people are just submitting content that they're already posted or published elsewhere- to be considered, your article has to be original.

No worries about that. I won awards as a journalism major and rarely actually have had the time to sit down and write up camera theory in text form.

I'm not 100% sure but yes that's the goal.

Would a article covering many things in post processing be alright (Covering some points already covered by some articles, such as Shadows and Highlights)? It may be quite long but its the thing I'm most experienced at.

Is there any chance that I could ask for two items, instead of one item? E.g. Two lenses that together still cost less than a K-5
