Journal writing! You don't need to do it every day, but it does have benefits. Did you know that keeping an updated journal helps build your HUD pages? It does! The more content you submit, the better off your character will be.
HOW DO I WRITE A JOURNAL?
One way is to go through your Outbreak HUD. Click on the green splotch that shows your page count, Select "My Journal", then "Go to page", and a browser window will pop up.
The other way is to work right off of our website. In the top menu row, hover over "Journals" and a drop down window will appear. Click on "Write a Journal Entry" and you're set to begin! Be sure to carefully edit your journal before posting, for you may not be able to make edits after it's been submitted! It's suggested you write down your journals first in Microsoft Word or Google Documents before submitting your entry, just in case something goes wrong. Then, just copy and paste your entry in the blank journal field.
Great journal entries get featured on Outbreak's front page.
HOW DO I GET MY JOURNAL FEATURED?
At the bottom of our homepage, you may of seen journal entries listed. These are great journal entries worth showing off to everyone! Having your journal featured offers no bonuses, but it does put you in the spotlight for a bit. There's just a few things we look out for when approving journals to be featured.
HOW DO I ADD PICTURES TO MY JOURNAL ENTRIES?
Your picture is now set! You may even add more if you wish!
You can move your picture around by clicking and dragging it to the desired location. When you click and drag your picture, a small window will appear on top of it with five new buttons: "Alight Left", "Align Center", "Align Right", "No Alignment", "Edit", and "Remove". " Alight Left", "Align Center", and "Align Right" will wrap your words around the picture. "No Alignment" will just leave your picture where it is and words will strangely wrap around it. "Edit" will allow you to add a caption to your picture. Selecting "Remove" will delete the picture from your journal.
There are just a few things to remember when uploading pictures:
Maximum Upload File Size: 300 kB. Saving your picture as a .jpeg will usually allow your picture to be uploaded to the Outbreak album.
Minimum width is 607 pixels. Minimum height is 300 pixels.
