What is a Column?

A column is a specific part of the site that holds articles written by a columnist. A column is run by the columnist who decides on the content of the column and writes content for it.

What is a Columnists?

A columnist is generally a Doctor Who or Torchwood fan who writes opinion based articles for their column on DW4N. They are usually very knowledgable on Doctor Who and/or Torchwood (depending on their speciality) with high analytic skills.

I want to publish an article but not be a permanent columnist. Can I do that?

Yes! We very much want user interaction with the site to make it a better community for the DW4N visitors, which is of course, yourself. Maybe you have a one off idea you want to share with the rest of the Doctor Who/Torchwood community, or you don't want the committment of having a permanent column? If that's the case, then you can submit your article for the user submitted articles section. To submit an article you've written, click here. Remember, any article submitted must be your own work.

Can I comment on column articles?

As of the 25th May 2010, yes you can. We first implemented columnists but were then asked why you couldn't post comments on them. So we changed it, and now you can. All we ask is that you keep language civil, ie don't insult the columnist (remember the articles are based on their opinions which their entitled to have) and don't insult fellow commentators. If you disagree with a point made by a columnist, by all means let them know your side of things! Maybe it'll spark them into doing another article from the other point of view.
