NeoPortal FAQ v1.0
[Updated: 28th April 2008]
Welcome to the NeoPortal Requests Information & FAQ thread.
This thread will house a lot of the information about NeoPortals in one easy to read document. The NeoPortals will often be referred to as just Portals and Portal Staff are the members who do the actual work on any portals underneath their name. There are NeoPortals being worked on that are locked to Public access so only Portal Staff can access them until the portal administration team feels that the content is enough for the Portal to be unlocked and released to the public. People working on locked Portals won't have any links under their name until the Portal is released. The information here will mostly be in the form of an FAQ. Simply look at the questions and click on the link to be taken down to the appropriate answer. First though you must read this.

[Frequently Asked Questions]
» What is a NeoPortal?
Should members of the request be unsatisfied with this action, the only course of action is to discuss it with us over PM. The right to close down requests completely has been allowed by the site administration following a fall in standards, lack of knowledge of portal procedures, conduct of members in forums across the site and anything else we feel would result in the request and portal failing.
1) Allow more members to join in the portal process
2) Allow more work to go into making detailed and exciting pages
3) Encourage users to finish their portals and support the team members
Users will not be able to flop from one developmental portal to another until the portal is ready to be released or is shut down. So in other words, once you're on 2 developing Portals, that's it until the project reaches its end one way or the other. At the moment, only four members (Krunal, teodortenchev, Vito Raliffe, and Avalith) have the ability to work on any NeoPortal. This is not to create an unfair system, but to allow them to help and guide new members and portals. So, many of the links underneath their portal tags may be areas they're not working on as a proper committed staff member.
There's also currently a limit as to how many released Portals overall you can work on at any one time as well and that limit is 4. So that's 4 published, 3 published and 1 developing or 2 published and 2 developing. We want all the NeoPortals to grow and expand, your job isn't finished once the portal is released. As an editor you are responsible for updating and promoting your portal. We want portals that promote ongoing participation for users not a 1 time read.
Admin are looking for all of the following:
That is probably the majority of information you need to know about Neoportals. If your question wasn't answered in here then it's either because you don't need to know the answer or because it was overlooked accidentally when writing this. If you have a question, comment or suggestion about this post then feel free to send a PM to one of the Portal Forum Moderators and they get back to you about your query.
Here are the previous threads where the majority of this information came from.
Thank you for reading, contributing and making the NeoPortals ever bigger and better.
