Please write name of the weapon system or military entity fully rather than its shorter version. If you must, insert the shorter version in parenthesis as shown above.

Similar program coming for those who will upload pictures to the gallery and want to get paid...
sounds like something id be intertested in. i have a few questions though...
what time period is this open to? (all post world war two, post korea,etc?)
is it for anything in use today, or is there a list of items or a list of countries whose use means that items are open for an article?
would you be interested in pictures and articles on more obscure nations' weapons systems and local mods?
ok i would like to participate in this but there are some questions if my write was checked and you foun it has some wrong grammer or spelling would it be turned down or you will correct the wrong and puplish it
and do i write in the primary url http://www.defencetalk.com/forums/
As usual, I'm eager to go for the task, although I know it may end up against my own benefit...But who cares. I can write quite good article about Finnish indegenious artillery programs, exspecially about the 155K98 and perhaps something about the soviet D-30.
But this AD thing is bit weird to me, what it exactly is? In comon speach/bad english? How much i can benefit from it? Is the ammount of money enough to compensate the effort of getting this Ad thing?
I can always write the thing and you can send money to me some otherways? ...or to be solidare anbd write it without any other benefit than just nice little egoboost...

Well, it won't be much but you can earn few bucks depending on the popularity and how many different people click on the ads. It is a 50% share between your adsense ID and DefenceTalk. So, 50% of the ads displayed would be for your AD sense id and you get the money for it. Say, 100 see the article, and 50 click on the ads out of that 50, 25 clicks would be recorded under your adsense account and whatever you make from that is yours. If its $1000 so be it, if it is $10.00 then that is your luck.
You can certainly write about Finish Military and its weapons.
hmm.. I have not fully understand how this works, and how can I register to a google "Ad-account"?
Please give me links... because I'm interested in writing some articles on French weapons systems.
And what about articles that are not on weapons but rather on weapon technlogy? (for example guidance technology, propulsion methods for guided weapons, etc etc..)
