Mailboxes, Home Pages, Production:
  • A limited number of webmail boxes are available. You can have an email address with yourname@sohoweeklynews.com. You can check your email and send messages from any computer with this webmail service. To apply, click on the @ symbol on the top navbar and send an email with your name and the name you'd like to use . You will receive a temporary password which you can change.
  • Any SoHo News staff member or contributor can have their own homepage with reminiscences, souvenir photos, links to former SWN contributions, and links to web sites. For an example, go to the 'Who' page and click on any homepage. It's easier for us if you make it yourself in MS Word or Netscape Composer but we can make one for you in our style. You will need to email words and photos according to guidlines explained below.
  • We want your SoHo News articles for the sections on art, music, politics etc. They should refer to volume, issue, page number, photo, and photographer of the original SoHo News publication. We also need your photos for the photography section and/or for the history of the paper.
Guidelines for Submissions:
  • Words: MS Word .doc in 10 or 12 point Arial or Helvetica
  • Photos: 72 dpi jpeg no more than 640 pixels on a side saved at 8.
  • Email all files as attachments to an explanatory message to Boo.
Your Internet Connection:

This site contains many graphics that take a long time to load with a dial-up modem. The navigation bars are in Flash which means you need the plug-in (click blue button on home page to get it). We recommend getting a DSL line or cable modem like RoadRunner if you don't already have one, not only for this site but for all your web surfing. If you are using AOL, leave that for the kids and get a real Internet Service Provider (ISP) such as Earthlink or AT&T Business Services. If you must keep AOL, please upgrade to Version 8.0.

We look forward to building a fun site with everyone's contributions!
