    I want to post under the 'workshop' section but I can't.

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by Darkcula, Feb 25, 2014.

    It shows,
    "You have insufficient privileges".

    I couldn't find the rules/guidelines anywhere :( related with this issue.

    You need 20 posts including 2 critiques first.

    http://www.writingforums.org/faq/forum-rules.64/

    Rules are in the dropdown menu under 'information'.

    Posting Your Writing
    • You must own the copyright to all work claimed your own.
    • All stories, poems, or other writing offered for comment must be posted in the Writing Workshop.
    • If your writing contains adult language, sexual behavior, or violent, it must be marked/categorized as such.
    • Enclosures, links, and images are not acceptable. The work to be reviewed, and all critiques, must be posted directly, without any supplementary materials.
    • Posting in the Writing Workshop requires 2 or more constructive critiques of other members' work for each new posted work.
    • You must be registered for at least 14 days and have made 20 posts before you can create a thread in our workshops.
    • Only your own writing may be posted in the Writing Workshop.
    • By posting, you are granting limited use. Specifically, retention or removal of that piece of writing from the site is solely at the discretion of the site administration team, and members may quote the submission in full or in part for the purpose of critique within that thread.
    • Please do not spread stories and articles across multiple threads, including blog threads. If a story won't fit in the initial post, subsequent pieces should be posted as replies to the original post.

    There are several new posts in the workshop with no critiques yet. Why not have a go? It'll increase your number of critiques that count toward your own workshop posts. :)

    I'll do that, but does it matter if I am the first or say 'n' th person to critique someone's work?
    And will this critique thing count only for the workshop section?

    No, it does not matter if you are first or twentieth to a make a post, but just as you would wish to have your untouched new thread critiqued first before members look at one that has received tons of attention, so should you perhaps employ the same sentiment if possible. ;)

    mods...
    this raises the question of whether the rules 'n regs are easily enough seen/found by newcomers... if only found under 'information' i don't see that as being obvious enough... 'site rules' should appear on the opening page in such form as to not be easily missed... and, looking at the forums list page, which is where most would start, i don't see anything saying 'rules' or anything even suggesting same...
