NewsPoint Guidelines


NewsPoint is a link aggregator, content rating, and discussion site. The links aggregated should be about Microsoft SharePoint, Office 365 and other Microsoft related technologies. Links from official sources as well as blogs are more than welcome. Submissions from third-party vendors, news about tools, services, and conferences are welcome.

Links you submit

On-Topic: Anything that helps system engineers, developers, business, and power users to understand Microsoft technologies better and to excel in their day to day jobs. Off-Topic: Any link not related to Microsoft technologies shouldn't end up on NewsPoint.

In Submissions

All submissions should use the original title. However, it is wise to employ some redaction when needed to avoid titles that stand out: like using all uppercase or exclamation points. If a link points to, e.g. a PDF or video file add “[video]” or “[pdf].” Please link to the original source, not the page that has reposted it. If the title contains site URL, remove it as it will automatically be extracted.

In Comments

Please treat this discussion medium with the same respect you would in a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge, and interests. Be civil. Don’t post anything that a reasonable person would consider offensive, abusive, or hate speech.
