When writing an article…

We really appreciate every article sent to Full Circle but please: before sending in your articles please take the time to read our Guidelines and our Style Guide as we are receiving more and more articles with terrible spelling and grammar and obviously not checked, this adds greatly to our workload and editing times.

We don’t expect perfection, several errors are to be expected but unfortunately, from now on, articles with large amounts of mistakes may have to be returned to the writer for corrections and this can mean your article may miss the deadline.

Please take the time to read the Guidelines and Style Guide!


New sub-forum!

Ubuntu Forums have graciously given us a sub-forum on their site. This sub-forum is now our main forum and the current one will be closed. Just log in to Ubuntu Forums with your normal log in and scroll down to 3rd Party Projects and you’ll see a link to ‘Full Circle Magazine‘.

Many thanks to Ubuntu Forums for thinking us worthy of a forum, it really is much appreciated.
