In case readers of this thread haven't noticed, this is now a pinned thread. In order to pin it, I've modified the 'suggestions' of this thread in the original post, since back when I made those I was not a moderator, and converted some to rules and kept some as suggestions with agreement from the rest of the moderator team so that this thread could be pinned. Please do read and follow the posting rules and let us know if there are any questions.
Again the rules for posting are found on the first post of this thread.
Curtis, thanks for Sticking the thread.
But, some points you make in the suggestions will often be impractical.
Suggestions for broadcast posters:
Post any prediction as to the likelihood of the broadcast would also help, maybe say low, medium, or high likelihood.
Post the planned target types (Solar, Lunar, Planetary, Comets, Asteroids, DSOs, etc...), a general idea is ok at a minimum but if there is a specific list that would be great to share too.
When the broadcast comes online please edit the broadcast post to say so.
When the broadcast finishes please edit the broadcast post to say so.
Edit the broadcast post to answer any questions that were PMed that you'd like to share with others.
The Edit button usually disappears around 24 hours after making a post, so the edits you suggest probably won't happen.
It is a good suggestion though if edits are made quickly after the initial post.
