Hi folks! Seems as good time as any to go over the fine points of getting posted on The Gumboot.
First off, Frontpage articles: We encourage islanders to submit community interest stories – you know, articles about community happenings and people, and events of broad interest about day to day life on Quadra.
Keep in mind – stories are more chunky than snippets or ads, plus they don't typically have a financial component!
THAT would be commercial, for-profit stuff, and it belongs in one of two places: in more detail on our paying subscribers' individual pages, or in less detail in our Free Classified Ads section. Four categories there to choose from!
And now, here's the final bit to remember: Unless you're a paid (passworded) subscriber, your submission won't appear the minute you hit the 'Send' button. For that you have to wait until one of the two site moderators uploads it.
Other questions? Go to Help & Options > Send Us a Message and we'll take it from there!

Please tell us what the paid password subscriber is about?
This is the first time I've heard about it.
Thanks
