    The GrammarNazi has entered the forum :o

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by GrammarNazi, Dec 8, 2011.

    Hello to all the people who roam the writers forum!
    In case your wondering I am no poet but I can certainly write and have a knack for picking up grammatical errors hence the name. You are most welcome to slam me when I make a error myself too. Anyways thought I ought to introduce myself.
    Oh and if your reading this, kudos to you for taking the time to read my corny introduction.

    I do welcome you as a poster, but I must say that the name and particularly the pseudo-swastika are a problem for me; I'm not comfortable seeing the Nazis used as a lighthearted cultural reference. Maybe that's my age, though I'm not _that_ old.

    Ahh I didnt see that coming.Well all i can say is my apologies to those who are offended and it wasn't meant to insult. I suppose a change of profile picture is in order to elminate the pseudo factor. Cant really change the name now though.. sorry people!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, GrammarNazi!

    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 and Cogito) 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.

    GrammarNazi, you are guilty of using "your" when you mean "you're" in your first post. Please try to do better in the future.

    And welcome! :D
