    I'm sorry, but I have a question.

    When want to contribute information, what should we put in the comments box.

    One tip is to add the contribution itself in the comments box, so you know what contribution you're dealing with later on (should really start to do that myself too ). Otherwise you should add the source of the contribution (if possible). If you're editing an existing item, use the comments to indicate what and why you're editing.

    Hope this helps

    Say exactly what your doing...

    Example:

    KraigA has been shot 8 times.

    EDIT: KraigA has been shot 9 times
    Comments: I am editing this submission because he has actually been shot 9 times not 8. Source: www.kraiga.com

    Thats something like what you should be doing.

    • provide a source for the submission (if available) important: you need to code the URL as a link or it will mess up your submission page display
    • copy the quote/trivia/note into the comments so that you have a record of what you submitted
    • anything else you think the person processing the submission needs to know, e.g., why you are submitting the item -added a guest star, corrected a typo, added a new quote, etc.

    how to code your URL with xhtml:

    <a href="Your URL comes here">The Text everyone will see</a>
    The URL (in red) will be hidden; only the blue text will appear.
