Want to promote your UGC content or review UGC missions? Want to share tips, secrets, and tutorials? Just want to post your thoughts about UGC?
Well, you’re at the right place. Starbase UGC aims to be a fully user-generated site, where the members post to the blog and collaborate on new UGC missions.
We only ask that you follow a few guidelines: Posting Guidelines
If you can follow these rules, then do two things (sorry, it’s a little complicated):
STEP 1. Register for the blog. Once done, you will be a “subscriber.”
STEP 2. We need to verify that you’re not a spam bot. Please email email@example.com or pm Galactrix or Bazag at the STO forums.
Once we’ve verified that you’re human (usually within 24 hours), we’ll change your blog status from “subscriber” to “contributor,” giving you posting permissions on the blog. You can then submit blog posts promoting your UGC content, reviewing others, etc.
How to do that:
You can post to the blog after you login with your username and pass. Look at the options near the top of the site. It should show you an option for “add new” and “post.” When you click that link, the blog window opens up. You may have to dabble with it if you’re not familiar with wordpress. When finished, press publish. A mod will review it and post it within a few hours.
Note: Until you obtain “author” status as a regular and known poster, you will need to use photobucket for all images. Insert the embed html code of your photobucket pics into the html tab of the wordpress blog interface. You will not have permission to upload files as a new contributor. Sorry, this is a limitation of the wordpress user categories.
Also, Youtube videos may be inserted by putting in the simple youtube link to your video. In a blog post hit “Enter,” paste the link, and hit “Enter” again. A simple http: link to the video will show up as the video, so don’t worry about the embed codes.
