    A lame question as my very first post

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by PaulKemp24, Dec 24, 2012.

    Greetings everyone. I stumbled across this site today and after browsing around it I thought I should sign up. Tons of great info here so I'm glad to be here.

    In this forum (the noob forum) there is a "Post New Thread" button in the top left. I see the same button for most of the other forums but not all. Some of them (such as "novels," which is where I want to begin a thread) do not have that button. There's just nothing there in the upper left corner and I don't know how to post in those forums.

    Is my computer being a jerk? Am I REALLY blind? Any idea why the "post" button appears in some forums and not others?

    So glad to kick off my posting here with a totally lame question! Thanks!!

    See the forum rules - you need to participate a bit before posting your own work to the Writing Workshop.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, PaulKemp24!

    I hope you find what you're looking for here, whatever your interests in writing.

    This forum aims to provide the best workshopping resources on the internet, and to that end we have a few rules which you should familiarise yourself with before you get stuck in. The main section of the site is the Writing Workshop, where members can post their writing in order to receive critique of their work.

    However, before we allow members to post their work, they must have met some basic requirements. Firstly, you must have been a member for fourteen days, and have made twenty posts on the forum overall (please note, posts in Word Games do not count towards this). This is so that members, when they post their work, have familiarised themselves with the forums and contributed to them (as well as hopefully learned something for themselves). Secondly, members must provide two constructive reviews of other people's work for each piece of their own that they wish to post. This is because we believe that the focus of workshopping should be equally upon giving reviews as receiving them, as they allow a writer to practice and improve their editing skills, which they can then apply to their own writing.

    Beyond the Writing Workshop, you will find that we have extensive forums for discussion of aspects of writing, as well as a community area for general discussion. We also run periodic short story and poetry contests, which are good for challenging yourself and expanding your skills.

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, Cogito, Lemex and Dante Dases) should be your first port of call. Any technical problems with the site itself should be directed to Daniel, the site administrator and owner. I would recommend you have a look over the rules so that you know what to expect, and what is expected. But aside from that, I hope you enjoy your time here.

    P.S. Hopefully that answers your question!

    A big thanks to everyone, especially Banzai. And yes, that answered my question. I'm really glad I found this site. The life of a writer can get pretty lonely at times just sitting at the computer watching that cursor blink at you over and over again so I'm glad I found a connection to some like-minded folks.
