Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Greetings from Angelhack SF 2012!  We are a few devs who are semi-liberal (check my diary history, as I used to post to DKos like 5 years ago) and part of a competition to build a site in about 24 hours.

Anyways, our goal is to build a site where you can watch along (currently only with FOX News), submit statements that need to be fact-checked, then attach facts for or against.  We're in a competition where we'll be judged in about 4 hours, so the more quality users and activity we have at about 2:30pm PST, the more likely potential investors will want to be a part.

The site's called Factasmic.com, it will be open for business at 12:30pm PST.  Spend your Sunday watching some fox news, chatting in real time with other Kossacks, and alpha-testing a product that didn't exist 24 hours ago! :)

PLEASE tell your friends, as the more people we have at 2:30pm, the better chance you could one day very soon have a platform to hold pundits accountable in real time for what they say!  Eventually, we want to partner with CNN and other news networks so YOUR FEEDBACK could instantly show up the next time Anderson Cooper interviews a guest.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).
