Is it somehow possible to incorporate a spreadsheet file for this article as attachment?

I am thinking about an article about lens characteristics which would mostly be that easy to use calculation tool I could create and publish. It seesm there is no way to upload a zip-file or anything, which is sad as it would exclude this idea.

Thanks. Then I'll write the article text in the submission area and do a post with zip attachment here, which I'll link to from the article.

Sounds good! Note that I'll be cleaning up/formatting all the articles that get published, so have no worries as far as the technical stuff goes

Just curious, what time zone are we operating by for that midnight deadline. I'm trying to put the finishing touches on the finishing touches.

Adam, I remember reading somewhere that you were considering putting the submissions to a general vote by forum members after an initial review by you and the mods. Is this still the case, or was the number of entries too large to make this reasonable?

Anyway, I hope we ended up with some good stuff!

That's the plan, but it's TBD still.

Forums depend on content. Content brings eyes and eyes bring money. For the most part the forum members provide the content and Adam try’s to do what he can to encourage this. He also post news items and items from the affiliates. The intent is to show the affiliates value for there money and interest to the readers to get more eyes. The contest is a way to generate more interest to get more eyes but it is an extremely expensive way to do this. So I would think that Adam is using the articles to fill in on slow days and stretch out the time to get the most bang for the buck.
