Tips to insure your article will make it onto Retro Junk. (Remember not all articles will be approved)
For a good idea of what an article should look like take a look at some of the top articles in the archives.
Remember these are articles not forum posts. Take your time and make them a good read.
Format your article carefully. We have tried to give the user flexibility in the ways they can format text size, color, alignment etc. This can result in a nice, unique and easy to read article or a complete disaster. Remember often less is more.
Try to have whatever you are writing an article about on hand so you can have a fresh point of reference. For instance if you are writing about a movie hit up Netflix and watch while you write.
Pictures, videos or Youtube clips are not required but they can be a helpful aid in tickling the readers nostalgia bone and are usually well received.
Properly crop and size the pictures for your article. If you do not have a program to edit images you can pick up the free application GIMP.
