    Hi

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Water_Singer, Aug 5, 2007.

    Well, hello to you all.

    I'm new here and fairly new to the whole forum thing, so please play nice with me :p

    I enjoy writing a great deal, to the point where my dream job is that of an author.

    I hope that I can enjoy my time here and maybe make some new friends.

    I'll be more exciting later, when I've got some sleep and some sugar ;)

    Hello, and welcome to our forum.

    Misc. Information:
    In the 'General Writing' section, there are some helpful links in a stickied thread. Though I just gave the link right there.

    When you post a thread, you have to reformat your paragraphs. Also, before posting in 'The Review Room' section, you need at least 2 credits. This equates to reviewing two works (more people get reviews, less people just coming and going).

    There is a contest that needs voting on, so go have a look at all of that. We also have smaller, weekly contests for short stories and poetry as well.

    Just out of curiosity; when reading the rules, I noticed that we are not allowed to submit "graphic descriptions of rape or incest". What counts as "graphic"?

    I wrote a short story about rape that does not describe the actual occurrence. Is that "graphic"?

    If it doesn't even describe the sexual act, I sincerely doubt that it will be considered too graphic. That being said, it wouldn't hurt to include a disclaimer about the material.

    EDIT: Because most people don't find out about these until later... to the bottom left of every one of your posts is a green light, a balance, and a sign that resembles 'yield'. The first icon just means you're logged on the. The second is used to give people reputation points (the more posts, the more effective it is -- junior members can't affect anyone). The third reports a post to the admins/moderators. Use the final to prevent problems in the forum.
