Types of articles
When creating an article make sure that you mark its article type by adding the appropriate tag (eg: for a Tip, add a [TIP] tag to the beginning of your title). Here are the types of articles and their descriptions/requirements:
1. Regular article's - A tutorial that allows someone to learn about a technique or technology, or an explanation and documentation for code that the publisher is uploading. A regular article should be at least a page long (usually more). No tag is necessary for this type of post.
2. Tip's - A tutorial that allows someone to learn about a technique or technology, or an explanation and documentation for code that the publisher is uploading. A regular article should be at least a page long (usually more). There should be a "[TIP]" tag at the beginning of the topic subject.
3. Trick's - A trick is the same as a tip although usually only a sentence or maximum 1 paragraph. There should be a "[TRICK]" tag at the beginning of the topic subject.
