Creating a New Topic

If you don't find a topic (a.k.a. article) for a given CV or other related subject, and you are a registered member (How to Register), you can create a new topic.

Topics should be limited to discussions of particular CVs, processed data (light curves or spectographs) in support of these discussions, and techniques for collecting this data. When creating topics, star names should conform to AAVSO designations.

To Create a Topic:

  1. Navigate to the “CV Template,”​ select the “edit this page” tab and copy the template body.
  2. Use the search box, search for the new topic you wish to create (ex. XX-Ari). This will take you to a blank page.
  3. Select the “​create topic” tab at the top of the page. (The new topic will use your search text for its title.)
  4. Paste a copy of the CV Template into the page and save.
  5. Edit the topic as necessary.
