    I would be happy to write some but they would be naval articles only. Do you want capabilities of weapon systems included?

    aggresiveness, meaning how technical or detailed an article needs to be.

    Big-E, anything would do. If you can write (on your own or through research and put it in your words) and want to be paid through google adsense (revenue sharing) this is a good chance.

    For now, weapon system related articles only. I am sure many people would be interested if they knew they can get a google adsense account easily and can start earning money right away.

    Well, you can write about your country's armed forces which would be publishd here:
    http://www.defencetalk.com/world_military/

    Any other form of force comparison should be well written and unbiased and should strictly consider the ground realities rather than nationalistic perception.

    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?


    sounds interesting,

    Hi Wittmanace,

    Thanks for the interest. As long as it is defence/military related, it is a go. If some section is not there, we will create it to accomodate whatever you are interested in.

    Enjoy

    It would be checked and corrected. Only reason I would turn it down would be when it was copied from somewhere and had too many factual errors and didn't follow the format as required above.

    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?:rolleyes: ...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. :D

    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..)

    You can write about that as well. Anything that relates to Military and defense and provides technical details about certain weapon system or its components.

    https://www.google.com/adsense

    We are sorting some issues with this system before publishing anything so that it works out smooth. ;)

    Same question as heso10: what do I write in the "Website URL" case on the application page on Google AdSense? I understand I must enter an address. Do I type http://www.defencetalk.com/forums/?:type

    I could write some articles on the Romanian Armed Forces and some indigenous weapon systems.

    I don't understand the question.

    This only applies to:
    http://www.defencetalk.com/global_military/

    The two sections called Weapons DB and World Armed Forces

    We have not implemented revenue sharing for forum or gallery, yet. :D

    I am not much for writing articles, however I do maintain what I believe is a very accurate database of naval/military aviation assets which I update on a monthly basis (it is a hobby and is excess of 140 pages). I'd love to submit something like that (especially if I can get a buck or two out of it). If you give me an email address I'll send you a copy for your examination. My email is [email protected]
