# 1 What is Starbase UGC?
02-05-2013, 02:28 PM
Just a noob question...

What exactly is Starbase UGC? As an author, I'm looking to promote my missions once they approach completion, and I've heard this "Starbase UGC" is the place to do it.

I checked out their website but was utterly confused. What is it exactly?

Starbase UGC is the foundry community's blog. Anybody can write a blog post advertising their mission, if they properly register and go through the steps. It's also the place where lots of foundry podcasts post their shows.

All foundry tutorials are found at the site as well.

There is also live help usually 24/7 for authors who have questions concerning the Foundry via our chatroom, which is accessable on the mainpage of our site.

Awesome, okay, thanks. I'll be sure to check it out once my mission is complete.

I love StaraseUGC but I find it 's interface confusing. How does one post blog entries or adverts for your missions?
Play more STO Foundry! (You can thank me later.)

one can do both.

My suggestion on that ad front, look at some of the previous ones and 'steal' the formatting (I also recommend the format the spotlights get posted in)

or do something different
why not write out a captains log entry that does the same thing?
The whole of it is that you want to make it so the audience you are most targeting will be interested enough to pick up the mission
