You know, I could swear I emailed you the answer to that question about two hours ago. Why dontcha check your email?
So how do we lowly members get our articles submitted? And if we do become contributors after the obligatory 5 good submissions, then do we get to post in the articles forum?
In short, article submissions should be emailed to me for editing and approval. If I like it, you can post it in the Site Feedback forum and I'll move it to Articles. Yes, contributors will be able to post their own articles, but they still need to get final approval before they post.
