    Help this noob!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Alukard, Sep 14, 2012.

    Hey ok, I am probably profoundly mentally retarded for asking this, but I AM CONFUSED. For posting my story I know for sure I have to do two reviews, but the thing that is confusing me is the twenty posts and two weeks time rule. Does that mean I can't post my story for two weeks!? :eek:

    Yes. Posting your story for review shouldn't be the first or second thing you do here. Take your time to look around and join in the discussions. All the three rules you listed apply.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Alukard!

    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 requirments. 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.

    Haha alright thanks guys! I mean no worries of course I can wait two weeks to post my story. I mean I won't go to the shower and turn it on frozen cold setting and sit under that chilling rain as I cry my eyes out, no I won't do that.
