Blog: Writing for PHP Freaks
We have decided to give people the chance to write tutorials and blog posts for PHP Freaks. What you will have to do is go to your profile settings and click "Group Membership [http://www.phpfreaks.com/forums/index.php?action=profile;sa=groupMembership]". From there you will be able to request membership of a group called "Authors [http://www.phpfreaks.com/forums/index.php?action=groups;sa=members;group=23]". Requests may be denied for whatever reason.
There are a few conditions for this to be possible:
- You will grant The Web Freaks an irrevocable, exclusive, perpetual, world-wide, royalty free license to use the content you post. This means you are not allowed to, without the written consent of an administrator, to publish the tutorials elsewhere. It means you cannot charge us for the use and you cannot remove the content from our site without our permission.
- Submitted work must be written entirely by you. You are not allowed to use copyrighted content unless you have the explicit approval of the copyright holder. If that's the case then we must be able to verify this.
- You will need to have good written English skills.
Your work will always be accredited to you, and it will not be republished on sites not belonging to The Web Freaks without your approval.
You'll be writing about things that are of general interest to PHP developers and you will be writing tutorials for people who are learning about PHP at any level (i.e. from beginner tutorials to advanced topics). We would rather have tutorials that teach programming/coding concepts or theory than specific things, such as a blog (see Learning to think like a programmer [http://www.phpfreaks.com/blog/learning-to-think-like-a-programmer]).
If you think this is something for you then please request membership [http://www.phpfreaks.com/forums/index.php?action=profile;sa=groupMembership;request=23] and somebody will look at your request. If you already have an idea for a tutorial then you could outline it in the "reason" box when applying.
