    Hello. Don't ban me.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Guybrush Threepwood, Jan 8, 2008.

    I thought it was a fitting title, seeing as how I got to be here. It was recommended by ThreeSided, someone who you guys banned for starting a spam attack or something. Well, I've just gotten back into writing, so I'm here as a writer, not a spammer. Now I'll just wait until the shadow of the ban hammer has passed. Until freedom is mine, Au Revoir.

    Hello GT, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    If you haven't explored the site yet, you should probably do so soon. Newcomers often gravitate to the Lounge, the Word Games, or the Review Room, but there is much more to be discovered if you poke in the corners. Remember to check out our FAQ as well!

    As for the Review Room, new joiners often wonder why we do things a bit differently on this site than on other writing sites. We emphasize reviewing as a critical writing skill. Training your eye by reviewing other people's work helps you improve your own writing even before you present it for others to see. Therefore, we ask members to review other people's writing before posting work of their own. The Review Room forums on this site, therefore, are true workshops, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work (and on that note, please only post each item for review in one Review Room forum). See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Welcome aboard GT. I think you'll find we're a fair lot, and we certainly don't ban based on association. Anyway, take a look around, and I hope you find what you're looking for. If you need any help with anything or have any questions, please feel free to ask; I'm always happy to lend a hand :)

    Oh god. The love in this thread is overwhelming.
    Anyways, thanks for welcoming me and such.
    Also, on a slightly off topic note, Threesided wasn't trying to start a spamming raid or anything, he was just showing the site to us. Please, be gentle.

    ThreeSided wrote his own ticket, and it was a one way pass out of here.

    Just kidding, welcome to the forum! :D

    How did your friend start a spam raid unintentionally?

    Sounds good. Party on and what not. Also, I have a question. Is what not one word or two? Whatnot.
    Long story...So here, read this. [Link which cannot be posted, yet.]
    I guess I'll PM it to you or something.
    Also, friend is a bit strong. I'd say...aquaintance.

    Hmm...I have nothing to comment on how you got here. But nevertheless, enjoy this place. And I'll be the first to ban you (provided I even have the power to ;)).

    Here's a basic welcome from all of us. It should be obvious, but in case it isn't, let me explain. The Writing Problems Area is exclusively where opinions on different ways to write, blockages in writing styles and similar problems can be discussed. In the Review Room, you can get critical appreciation and/or analysis of your written material. Behold, you must first review two pieces of writing before posting your own. This is ensure the pieces are evaluated to the most. Other than this, we have Writing Cotnests, weekly and monthly, where you can submit your writing. We also have Word games, Book Discussion and so on, classified under Community interaction. It may interest you if you're just hanging around.

    adamant has been kind enough to put many of the things I have mentioned or missed out on in one comprehensive place. If you want to check it out, see the Newbie Packets:
    Noobie Packets! - Writing Forums

    Enjoy it here, and don't feel shy to ask for help. We are all here to teach and learn in a mutual environment. And we hope you can do the same.

    Regards and Best Wishes!
