We have a lot of awesome and addicted Bones fans in this spot, but I have noticed that many of them don't have a medal.
Of course, having medals isn't a competition or the most important thing in the world, I just would want to help the ones who want to have one here.
I try to rate things as much I can. But it's kind of difficult with school and everything.. But on holidays I usually come here and rate. I have noticed that other fans rate here too and I find it really awesome !
I tried to write a short article, but you know me ! So if you want to contribute to the Bones spot, please read this !
I'm not gonna rate things for you if you ASK it.
WHAT IS A MEDAL?
Medal is a reward that you get when you have added things to a spot. You can see your medals on your profile page. There are three kind of them:
- Respect from fellow fans! This fan has made some good contributions to fandom.
- Greater respect from fellow fans! This fan has made significant contributions to fandom.
- Mega respect from fellow fans!!! This fan has gone above and beyond the call of normal fans. We have about 7(?) fanatics in the Bones spot
HOW DO I GET A MEDAL?
Medal is a reward you get for:
Pop Quiz Questions
By starting an active forum
For active participation
Oh, and for you to get a medal, the content you add has to be highly rated. You COULD get a medal with low or no ratings, but it is definitely much harder.
HOW DO I ADD VIDEOS AND LINKS?
Read this helpful article that Harold wrote
The main points about adding videos/links to the Bones spot are
The video/link has to do something with Bones
Don't add the same videos/links someone else did !
Use keywords !
And remember to credit!
HOW DO I ADD IMAGES?
Any images that don't fit in with the other categories should be added as PHOTOS
They can be promotial pictures, Bones actors' pictures, almost anything Bones-related
USE KEYWORDS AND CREDIT PICTURES !!!
Not using keywords = People can't find the images/videos/links that you have contributed !
= STEALING !
. Really. Taking credits / not adding credits to other people's work is stealing. So when you add pictures, please, PLEASE credit them !
Use the WALLPAPER setting for large, high-resolution images meant to be used to decorate your desktop.
[Any wallpaper uploads smaller than 800x600 will be re-categorized as photos]
Select ICON if it's a small image (100x100 pixels, for example)
[Any images 200x200 and smaller will be automatically re-categorized as icons. ]
Fan-created mashups, drawings, sketches, posters and the like go in the FAN ART category.
. Many people spend a lot of time on their fanart. So I truly hope that you will credit people for their amazing job !
[How would you feel if you'd spend like a week doing some fanart and see it on another page without credits? Not good I guess]
Screencaptures from Bones episodes
If you want to upload screencaps from an episode, be sure that those screencaps haven't been uploaded
If you add someone else's caps, remember to CREDIT !
[i]If you need ANY help with screencaps, I'm here for you ! Nandacavalieri and I take our own screencaps and if you want to learn how, just message us !
HOW DO I WRITE ARTICLES?
Write an article
Okay, I really suck at writing articles, so don't turn to me if you have problems with it :D
If you want to write a fanfiction, you can turn to Suu or to Vampiregirl - They have written the best fanfictions here !
Articles can be a lot of things
: opinions, reviews, guides, fan fictions, lists or something else
Just remember to be reasonable with it - We don't want any "Bones sucks" articles here !
HOW DO I CREATE PICKS / ADD POP QUIZ QUESTIONS?
Create a pick
Add a pop quiz question
Picks - You can ask people's opinions about things
Please make reasonable picks and make your sentences understandable
Please don't repeat picks
Pop quiz questions - Ask factual questions about Bones
Again, please don't repeat them & write them in a way we all can understand them :)
The last thing I want to say:
- I know I talked a lot about crediting and keywords, but they're really important !
- I won't (and nandacavalieri won't) rate your photos if you don't use credits/keywords
- Don't make random picks - Me and nanda will report every single one of them. SO IF YOU MAKE SOME RANDOM PICK AND IT'S DELETED ON THE NEXT DAY - BLAME ME
- Hahaha, I'm not even WHY I did this article - I got bored I guess.... But I hope this will help you !
- I know 'what's a medal' articles are all over fanpop, but I have seen a lot of Bones fans here who keep asking that
- I have a Bones fanatic - So if you need tips, advice, ANYTHING, message me ! If you need to talk to someone about BB, I love to do it !
Oooor if you just want to message me and say 'GOOD MORNING' - I WILL REPLY :D .
- BONES ROCKS MY SOCKS ♥
- I REALLY want more medals here. So I. Can. Help. You. Just. Ask. For. Help !
