About MicroProfile Content Reviews

If you need/want help with Tehcnical/Grammar/Copy/Edit Review

Contributors are welcomed to make the best usage of drafting content directly in the MP Content folder: blog folder

Doing so will ensure that copy/edit review is possible via "Sugestive Mode".

  5. Scroll down to the Page Header Image and add image to your post, specially if you are contributing a video, a clip from it is valuable.

  7. Open an issue at the respective MP Github project requesting the new post review.

  3. Editor reviews the blog post for compliance to criteria (see "Criteria for approving blog posts" section below). If the post needs re-working, change the "Status" of the post to "Draft". This will send the post back to the writer to correct and re-submit. Editor needs to follow this with an email to the writer with details on what needs to be corrected. If the post satisfies the compliance criteria, then continue to the next step.

  4. At this point, to approve for immediate or future scheduling, click on the "Publish" button

Criteria for approving blog posts

The following are some of the criteria that the editor will use when reviewing your submitted blog post:

  • Ensure the content of post is relevant and applicable to Microprofile

  • Check that content has the author(s) name

  • Check that the content provides credit to collaborators

  • Check that post has a “Page Header Image”

  • The image should be between 1600px - 2000px wide and have a minimum height of 500px for best results.

  • Check for grammatical errors - Editors can fix this

  • Check for TMs and copyrights - Editors can fix this or send back to author to fix
