WeetHet has been started, wednesday september
20th, 2000, satring with the main subject in those days "Internet
In the meanwhile the focus has changed strongly.
We now try to focus on newbies (beginners) and advanced
users. The subjects basically can cover anything you like, just as long as
you (and the visitors
of WeetHet) can say "Usefull for use at home!".
This can be any subjcet, for example internet related (ADSL, Downloading,
network, etc), hobby related (MP3, mvies, drawing, programming, webdesign,
We are not limited to computer use! Other subjects
like recipies, home improvemet, "how
... works", etc are also most welcome. It might sound a bit strange to
you, but the site is called WeetHet which is Dutch for "Know
Every page is published in English and Dutch. Since not all of you speak both
languages, I can do the translation for you.
Note that when submitting an article, (if you want
to) yout name (or alias)
and/or website will be mentioned. Credit where
credit is due!
What can I do?
We are looking for people that:
Let's take a look at the options here.
Writing an article
Writing an article is not easy: Let's face it, not a lot
of people are really capable (I think I'm not that great either - take a look
a my language mistakes and typos).
One important point: usability.
Naturally, the article needs to be of use to the beginner
(newbie) and advanced user. Ofcourse, not all articles can be written for both
targets, so some exceptions are possible.
Second point of attention is subject:
all subjects should be related to use at home, so "Usefull for
use at home!".
We're not waiting (although still welcome) to publish articles
on how CPU's work on a molucular level. However an article on what a CPU is,
how it basically works, what Mhz means, and what types can be found, will be
So before you start writing; consider or ask if such an article
is wanted at all.
Final point of attention: images.
It is said that a photo (or screenshot) often says more than
a thousand words ... it can save a newbie a lot of searching and confusion.
Tip: taking an existing article
on WeetHet as an example is a good way to start. Look for a similar article
and use it as a base for your own article.
How to supply an Article?
Delivering an article for WeetHet is done pretty easy.
You can choose to write the English text, the Dutch text
or both. Additional translations will be done by me.
For all of these methods: do not use background images and
supply images unaltered preferably in the GIF format.
I will adapt the images for use in the WeetHet house-style.
Formatting text is not needed either, as I will apply the
Don't forget to mention your name and address, this might
become in handy later.
Also: if you want, you name, alias, and/or website can be mentioned in the
There are basically 3 options:
1. HTML Document.
Use you favorite webpage editor, and start with a white page
adding text and images.
Send both the HTML document and the images by mail (optionally zipped) to: email@example.com.
2. NOTEPAD document.
The purest way to create text, is by just using Notepad.
Simply type the text as flat ascii text and add a simple marker (for example: "[image.gif]")
where the image should be included. Once again, send the images and the text
file (optionally zipped) to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. WORD document.
Not my favorite, but plenty of people love to use Word. Type
your text and paste your images in the Word document and mail it (optionally
zipped) to: email@example.com.
Some folks have been writing articles for WeetHet before;
The WeetHet forum is of great importance to
the visitors as this is the place where they can ask questions and find answers.
Support is needed to assist other users!
Some people think it's for posting spam, for
flaming (cursing) and for commercials, which is NOT the case.
Report such bad postings to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For these tasks we do need folks that help us
out, some visitors are already quite active (thanks guys!).
This can be done as a moderator or as an active
member of the forum.
Also very important!
Research can be done in several ways. For example
by searching IP-portnumbers for our IP-port list,
or words for our glossary. Daily folks mail me additional
information for these lists!
Research can also be figuring out how stuff
works or how a user should operate it. This can be done with products you own
or products donated at WeeHet (although this strongle depends on the suppliers
of these products).
Research can also be the base of an article,
like "How GPS works" or "How
a CD works".
Most folks will already be aware of this. Creating
a website, maintaining it and hosting it not only costs a lot of time, but
also a lot of money.

on advertising and sponsoring for possibilities.
