• Welcome to ACPTR!

    Welcome to the Army of CP Training Regiment. Founded in 2008 by Omega3, over 200 cadets have passed through the ACPTR classroom and graduated to become some of the greatest members of the ACP community. Our graduates have gone on to become some of the most influential members of the army community and members of the ACP leadership and higher command! Today the tradition endures and the ACPTR remains the premier institution for training the ACP soldiers.

Mini-Lesson: Before You Publish

This happens quite a bit on this site, so it needs to end right here, right now! I have made a Mini-Lesson for anybody who is interested: Cadets (for learning) and Staff  (to avoid being fired 🙂 )

There are 3 things that would REALLY help keep this site looking organised when you are writing a post: Spell-Checking, Categorizing and Post Structure

Spell-Check

Before you publish your post, quickly just read through it and make sure everything makes sense logic / structure wise. Then, press the “ABC ✓” button in the editing bar to spell check your post. Right click on any spelling errors that it highlights and make sure they’re corrected if need be. Please do this for every post you write, as it will really make your level of professionalism higher. Now, I don’t mind you spelling the word ‘colour’ the American way in ‘color’, as long as it is not a blatant mistake, like ‘cilour’.

Categorize

In the Categories box to the right of your post, simply click on the category which matches what you are posting about. Do NOT click any other categories! This is very important to do, or else your post is at risk of being edited or not being viewed! E.g: Putting an ‘Events’ post under ‘Staff’, might make the Cadets not bother reading it!

Do NOT add any ‘Tags’ to your post. This is completely different and unnecessary.

Structure

While posting, make sure you keep your structure organised and suitable for the type of post it is. You may want an events post to be Center Aligned, while a Mini-Lesson post is probably kept as it is. Some posts require the use of ‘Dividing Lines’, so try and measure these to a suitable length. Posts should always be written in ‘Paragraph Font’, but headings may be ‘Heading 1’ or ‘Heading 2’ sizes. Try and use colours which match and avoid using un-seeable colours. E.g: YELLOW or BLUE

 

I hope that you have read this Mini-Lesson and are ready to use this in the future! Good luck!
