Special Considerations

  1. If you are selected to be a Guru, we will be using the links from your application as a placeholder site while you prepare your first production site, so think carefully about how you would like to present yourself to a public audience. By applying, you give us permission to use your links for this purpose. Please note that we will not use any other forms of writing samples that you send to us for anything other than reviewing your application.
  2. Use Plain HTML. If we select your site for publication on TerraShare, our staff will work with you to reset your site according to our style guide.
  3. Please use your own words. Using other people's work and words is not only wrong, it is also automatic grounds for rejection for present and future roles as gurus.
