How do I keep up with all this information?

There are a number of ways to keep track of new content on OrangePolitics.  You can get updates on the web, by e-mail, via RSS, or even on Twitter! You can also choose whether you want to know about all new content including comments, or only blog posts, or just front page entries.

Why should I register on OP?

All that's required to register on OrangePolitics is an e-mail address, although we also request that you share some additional information about yourself. Click here to register (or login) now.

There are many benefits to signing up. The two main ones are:

  • Post comments without moderation. (All anonymous comments are held for moderation and are displayed in gray text.)
  • Create your own blog entries and add calendar events.
But wait, there's more...

How do I get my post on the front page?

Anyone who completes the registration process on OrangePolitics can publish blog entries. However, only users with editorial privileges can promote entries to the front page of the site*. Here are some of the criteria for determining whether to front page a post:

Where'd that page go? a.k.a. 404 Page not found

Have you followed a link to OrangePolitics only to get a "Page not found" message (or this here page) instead of the blog entry you were expecting? When we moved this site from Wordpress to Drupal in January 2008, we were able to keep most of the addresses from changing. However, there are some anomalies that fell through the cracks.

Where's my profile?

I'm making some changes to how profiles are handled to (hopefully) make them easier to use, and to require a bit of info such as name and precinct. You can see any user's profile by clicking on the name associated with a comment, event, or blog entry.

If you previously created a profile (information beyond your username and e-mail), I will be copying it over to the new profile shortly, so you probably won't even notice the difference. You can always edit your profile by clicking on the 'My account' link under your username in the sidebar.
