HOW TO ADD MY STORY?
Go to stories page > post new entry > enter title > choose category > type or paste story inside text box > publish. That?s it! Be patient - as your story needs to be approved before it?s published for readers.


WHY DOES A STORY NEED TO BE APPROVED?
To avoid irrelevant articles and also a way of having reasonably good stories for the sake of the users and site. We guarantee that most stories will get published if they satisfy these story guidelines. If the item isn?t approved, then it won?t be published.


CAN MY ITEMS BE ADDED WITHOUT JOINING SFK?
The answer is yes & no:
No - You can?t as you have to join SFK in order to add items on your own.
Yes - Send us your items and we?ll do the rest. You?ll be attributed at the end of that story - however it?s your choice.


WHAT ITEMS CAN I ADD APART FROM STORIES?
Photographs, poems, puzzles, speeches and other articles related to Kiribati.


WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
Browsing, reading, posting, commenting, viewing and more.


HOW LONG ARE STORIES?
Shorter stories (up to 1000 words) are encouraged. If your story is longer, consider dividing it into parts otherwise add the whole article.


STORY LANGUAGE?
English is preferred however those written in Kiribati are also accepted. Choose the language best for your article.


HOW BIG ARE THE PHOTOGRAPHS?
The photographs we added so far are 700 to 800 pixels. We encourage the resolution of 800 pixels but if you really need to add a larger one, then 1280 pixels is the most. Please consider optimizing your image to its lowest kb/mb. This is being asked for the sake of consistency, uniformity, appearance and speed.


CAN WE GET THE LARGER PHOTO RESOLUTION?
Contact the owner of the image for the availability of larger photographs - using the ?comment? or through a mail service on the person?s profile page. Or contact us and we?ll try our best to assist you.


I CAN?T FIND AN ANSWER TO MY QUESTION?
