    (btw does Cogito ever post a just welcome? ^.^ I think I read all the rules, and I dont plan on posting what im writing anytime in the near future and ive looked at a couple of the current submissions, I can see what you mean about reviewing being an important step.)

    Hey there. Welcome to WF. I also really like rpgs and anime. As for Cogito, I think he mainly just copies the same intro, with just changing the name, since he does it for everyone that joins.

    Hello Daniel. Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Obviously you've read other intro threads, so you have seen the standard tour information. And yes, I do read every introductory post, and do sometimes modify my template post accordingly.

    Most new mebers can't wait to start posting their own work. That's understandable, as this is a writing site. But they need to know that the Review Room is not a display gallery, but a functioning writers' workshop where writers improve the complementary skills of writing and reviewing. Effective reviewing is key to productive revision, and reviewing other people's work is a starting point to reviewing your own.

    So again, welcome to the site, and have fun.
