What is the VNN?
Please refer to the About VNN section.
See What is "Vaishnava".
A news story involves events and/or persons involved in a situation that is currently happening or has happened and has relevance to a current situation.
An editorial is about the view point of the author on a particular issue and should have an issue at it's focus point.
VNN depends on volunteers submitting material for publication. VNN is a collaborating effort of participating Vaishnavas and correspondents from around the world with one goal in mind - to provide news and communication to the Vaishnava community.
Today VNN has hundreds of correspondents and contributors worldwide.
In Cyberspace. The VNN web site is hosted by a major provider in the USA and updated by correspondents worldwide.
Please refer to the VNN Correspondent section.
All materials must be submitted via email. Please find all email addresses here.
Please state if you don't want your name and/or email address quoted with your article. By default, email addresses are only published when clearly displayed as part of the text submitted. However, there should be a valid reason for your name not to be published as the author.
Yes, pictures can be attached to email. For larger images and files use any of the popular compression utilities (Stuffit, ZIP etc) to compress images before sending. Image formats such as JPG, TIFF, GIF, BMP are ok.
It is up to the Vaishnava community to report more "good" news so it may outweigh the "bad" news.
There is a comment link at the bottom of every story published.
If you don't have email yourself ask a friend if he has or visit your local library or any other institution that has computers with Internet access. You can also get a free email account at yahoo.com or any similar such service.
Yes, just bookmark the World, USA, Europe or any other news index page. That should load faster. All the information that is on the VNN Home Page is also listed in the different main news directories. You can also turn off animated images in some browsers which will speed up loading.
If you have installed a recent version of either Netscape or Explorer you should be able to listen to the sound files without problems. If your browser cannot play the sound files go to shareware.com and download any of the sound utilities there.
To listen to sound files more often click on the sound file link, hold down mouse button, and choose "Save As" from the pop-up menu and save the file to your harddisk.
At VNN we believe that the story or paper published should stand on its own merit and the personal background of the author is not that important.
