Want to post up a long article?

We don't like long articles being posted into forums posts - instead, please do one of the following.

- if the article is online please post a link to it
- if it is not online, and it is suitable for our library please post it to there by clicking create content, then library entry as our library guidelines explain.
- if it is not online but is not suitable for our library, please login to http://docs.google.com (or without login at: http://paste.turbogears.org/) and paste your article there, then publish it publicly.

In your post then please summarise the article and post a link to it.

Many thanks.

It depends. I guess on readability and formatting as well. 200 words could be long - if its formatted in a narrow column. Depends on the style it is written, what we want is relatively easy to read forum speak, not academic jargon etc.

I'd say that thread is fine. But thats also his own words, not a copy and paste, which matters. Anyway that post is just over 500. So yeah I'd say 500 words max.

Think about it in terms of reading someone else's posts - would you read what you are about to post or would it be too long?

Hi RkN

I have an article I wrote last year for Common Voice but it is several thousand words long. I could post a single link to it if that is OK. It deals with the Misesean "Economic Calculation Argument" purporting to show the impossibility of economic calculation in a communist/socialist society. I would very much like some feedback on this to refine the arguments against the anarcho-capitalists

Would it be OK to post this link here?

posting links is fine - it's copying and pasting the several thousand words into a forum topic that we don't like wink

jambo1 - you'd be best posting that as a new thread in thought.

A Contribution to the Critique of Political Autonomy (By Gilles Dauvé)

Gilles have written a text to our "Vår Makt"-seminar to be held in Malmö, Sweden in 1-2/11, and his text is downloadable from our site.

It is a critique of democracy and political autonomy, I hope those words is enough to summarise it.

Kim - just to note, this is just for people who want to post huge tracts as forum posts (which used to happen loads, less so recently) - something like the Dauve article we'd be really happy if you could post it to the library, and no need to ask for stuff like that.

Ok, thanks for clarefying. I haven´t grasped how I contribute to the library.

You should be able to go straight to http://libcom.org/node/add/library or http://libcom.org/node/add/history and enter it directly. Articles go into moderation because we get spammed a lot, but we try to pick them up as quick as we can (which isn't always that quickly unfortunately).

And thanks Ret.

Dear friends, here is an article which I wrote some years ago. It is still valid, I think:

http://www.ibrp.org/en/articles/2005-06-01/world-revolution-and-true-marxism-a-letter-from-norway

Hope you will get something good from it.

I just created the thread "libya and the myth of humanitarian intervention" in the history section. I basically am just summarizing a piece done in the London Review of Books by Hugh Roberts. Is this something that belongs in the library rather than a forum post?

Hi, I would like to request article posting rights in order to submit to the library a series of theoretical articles which explore the connections between Autonomy Theory and a conceptual Anarchist Confederacy. Thanks.
