    Write up and edit your YKTTW exactly as you want it to appear. The "Launch" button appears after a timeout of 72 hours, but try not to rush things.

    Thank you.

    Don't title the page as an acronym, unless that's the official title, use the full name.

    What do you mean by official title? The full title is Build Your Own Net Dream, but it's referred to as such about as often as Hyper Text Transfer Protocol is. Should I make the main page Build Your Own Net Dream and have BYOND redirect to it (since it's not an acronym likely to be shared with anything)?

    Seconding Build Your Own Net Dream with BYOND as a redirect.

    This would qualify as a "works" page, right? Not a trope? Just launch it.
