Thanks for your willingness to help out. Quick summary:
  1. Get an OAD account.
  2. Learn the OAD style.

Getting an OAD account

  1. Go to the OAD and click the Request account link in the upper right corner.
    • If you already have an account, then sign in.
  2. New accounts must be approved by the editor, who is sometimes traveling. Please understand if this process takes a few days.

Learning the OAD style

  1. Log in to TagTeam, and go to the OATP hub.
  2. Click on the Contact tab in the left sidebar. Fill in the form, for example, by asking for permission to tag for OATP. Click Submit.
  3. The OATP hub owner will receive the message and approve you when it arrives.
When you get this far, you'll be authorized to tag for OATP. The next few sections are about how to do that.
