    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Everkate, Jul 16, 2008.

    Im like new, well, not really because I had a previous account here. Like half a year ago or something. It was when the layout was green. Perhaps this is a different forum due to the fact that I cannot find any of the forumers I remembered.
    But anywho, I hope to make a good contribution to this site because I just got back into lyric writing. :)

    Hello Kate, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    If you remember the old account name, please let Daniel or one of the mods know so the old account can be deactivated. You're only allowed one active account, so that should help avoid misunderstandings.

    Posting your own work should not be the very first thing you do here. It is really worthwhile to see what other people have done to improve their writing, and see if some of it applies to your writing as well. That is part of why we require members to review other members' work before posting their own for review. On the other hand, there are no restrictions, other than content and copyright rules, on showcasing your work in your member blog.

    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, and be sure to read through the forum rules, too, to avoid any misunderstandings or hurt feelings. Respect for one another is our principal mandate.

    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!

    It probably was a different site then, because I can't find a username anything like that. All the more reason to take a good look around, because this site has probably changed a lot from the one you visited before. ;)

    Welcome!

    The one I use to go to was: writingforums.com
    Is that a completely different forum?

    Indeed it is. :) There is some crossover, but WF.com and WF.org each have their own distinct qualities.
