How to Contribute To ROK Drop

Image from Flickr user Kristina B.

One of the options I added recently to the ROK Drop is the registration option visible on the sidebar above the recent comments widget.  This registration option allows readers to add their own contributions to ROK Drop.  I decided to add this feature due to the frequent reader tip e-mails I receive along with various comments asking why I did not post on something.  I have had e-mails accusing me of trying to cover up for USFK or having certain political leanings because I did not publish something or even if I did not publish it right away.  This is far from being the case because I only have an hour sometimes two a day to post things on ROK Drop so it is impossible for me to post everything that is sent my way.

By registering you can create your own posts on ROK Drop.  All you have to do is register with a valid e-mail where a password can be sent to you.  Once you confirm the password you can then setup your account to start posting.  By default anything that anyone posts will not be posted until I review it.  This is to prevent spam or inappropriate postings from being published on the site.  However, for those that have a track record for putting together good postings I will take off the moderation and allow you to post on the site without this restriction.

Of course feel free to keep sending me story links via e-mail, but I am just adding another option for readers to get the stories they think are of interest added to the site.  What I would really like to see more of is people begin to contribute old pictures from their time in Korea and stories they may have.  There is a lot of people decades of experience in Korea who read this site.  The ROK Drop even has Korean War veterans that read this site so it would be great if some of you with such Korea experience begin to contribute stories and pictures from your time in Korea.  Also if anyone spots old historical articles like some that I have published recently on the site that would also be great content to add to the site.

If anyone has any questions about using the WordPress software feel free to drop me an e-mail and I can explain it to you.  It is actually quite easy to use once you are familiar with it.  Finally thank you to everyone for reading the ROK Drop.

    Oh no! Now I have to come clean. I’m actually Babs Streisand, posing as a military spouse and posting in your forum for my own nefarious purposes. ;-)

    A comment on a recent news story about Petraeus claimed that the American military’s penchant for awarding all kinds of medals made them the laughing stock of Europe and noted the relatively modest chest medal displays of Eisenhower and Nimitz in contrast to the showy 8-9 rows seen on the uniforms of Petraeus and other top modern generals. Do US military medals reflect our culture’s ” everybody’s a winner” self-esteem mentality?

    A Washington Post story on the lifestyles of the generals described Defense Secretary Gates’ envy of his neighbor and subordinate JCS McMullen’s personal staff of four enlisted men plus a chef and chauffeur. How do the salary and perks of a top general compare to high government officials?
