    We do have members who post, on the General Boards, something they've written only to decide later to make it an article.

    So, yes, you may post in the Articles section if you wish.

    I want to clarify something just to clear up any confusion.

    If a member has already submitted an article in the past in either Articles forum, you cannot re-submit that same article again.

    If you have a good post in other forums, and you would want to resubmit it to the article contest, you will have to rename the title, and do some revisions to your original post so it is not duplicate content.

    Hi Brian,
    I didn't see a "contact us" link, so I'll ask here. I submitted an article in the non-nursing catergory. It is on the website. A relative who read it really wants me to try to publish it. I didn't see anything in the guidelines about giving up all rights to an article when it is entered in the contest-or wins. Could you please clarify that? I am out of work and would like to make a little extra money off it if I can. Thank you.
