Write for our Digital life blog

Sofa Bear

Our community belongs to you. And we’d love our new blog to be written by, well… you.

Whether you’re an aspiring tech writer, a lover of tech or apps; or have a trick or two up your sleeve when it comes to technology, we want you to have the opportunity to have your say.

What’s it all about?

If you’d like your voice to be heard, our new Digital life blog could be the chance you’ve been waiting for. Each month we’ll nominate a current tech topic, you can submit your ideas and we’ll work with you to create and publish your article.

What’s in it for me?

If you’d like to write for us, we can offer support, promotion and an audience.

You’ll have access to professional editors who’ll work with you to ensure your content gets your point across, we’ll help source images to bring your articles to life and we’ll promote your writing across social media.

Neat huh?

I’m in.

Glad to hear it. Getting involved is simple. All you need to do is talk to us. Send any of the team a Private Message and we’ll invite you into our Digital life group

(It’s like a members only board). That’s all there is to it. There are no formalities, we’ll just take it from there. >

Best wishes,

 

Our community team.

Interested, but I note that the team choose the topic monthly?  Can this process be used to supplement or replace FAQ's for both technical & process issues? 

Does formally registering an interest require a PM to @VirginMedia or some other, as yet undisclosed team member? Can the T&C's regarding submission and editorial controls be published here or again only via PM?

I'm interested too.  But I'm not sure that the Putinisation to which Horsey has referred is something that excites me.

I have lots to offer on a number of technical topics that can be brought before lay people to digest.

This mechanism is not what @MrJimMeadows led us to believe in the SU forum.

The price I (currently) pay for telling it as it is - NO CHOCOLATES!

Id be happy to put something together as an article, but as intimated above Id prefer it to be what I regard as useful. Not trying to be awkward, but if you invite us to write for you you pretty much get what is releveant to US. Edititorial discretion Im happy with, control not so much. Theres quite a few of us could improve (or indeed start) the technical help issues. Or even, dare I suggest it, give technical primers on what you can actually DO with your superfast VM broadband and how to secure your PC in an always on enviroment.....

Talking as a lay person, I would welcome any articles by you guys Smiley Very Happy

I too would love to post information on little short cuts & work arounds I've come across on various devices, especially setting up iPad & iPhone email accounts.

Nearly a year gone and still no visible "traction" on this "blogging submission" process yet for user contributions?. Do we have a 2017 target date or outlook perhaps? Neither can I speculate as continued membership of SuperUser Group means I have to search all Trial/SU posts and meetings minutes first to ensure I don't inadvertently disclose information that may have been previously disclosed but interpreted as "restricted - not for public forum disclosure" by VM Forum management. Until the outstanding queries are answered/clarified then I'll simply use my own server/blog/faq process.....

I sent a message to them about this and asked some questions.

The message was read but thye didnt have the curtesey to reply.

Bad show really 

Trouble shooter

The 'write for our digital life blog' link has replaced the 'can you help link'  in my 'Community' options, which used to show all the latest unanswered queries for help in the help forum. (Big minus)

Another previous (Big minus) was the removal of a link to 'Announcements' in the forum index.  https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Announcements/bd-p/Announcements

I'm not sure that I have really anything to contribute to a Digital life group but will look forward to reading the contributions from other more knowledgeable members.

Tuning in

I have a Moto E runnuning on 4G, at the moment I'm in The Netherlands and can't make any calls. The phone says it's in roaming mode however each network I register with says I'm not authorised to make calls. This also means I can't phone the Virgin helpline. I would appreciate a solution, this also happened to me when I was in France recently.

Regards,

Karmen.
