    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by NJFoster, May 10, 2008.

    Spiffing to be here chaps, abseloutly spiffing

    and other similar daft english phrases.

    Been lurking awhile, decided to pop in and say hi, so hi! Some really good information here, very helpful to beginners like me.

    Cheerio NJ, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    If you haven't explored the sodding 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!

    Hi! Are you, in fact, a Brit? Or do you just enjoy their phrases? :D

    Cheers

    And yes, I am in fact a Brit. Though I would like to distance myself from those posh toffs across the river, us taffs are far nicer people, the sort of people you would be happy to buy a pint for in a pub. Go on, buy a pint for us ;)

    That means I am Welsh (taffy is a nickname for welsh people) by the way, definately NOT English (well actually I am 1/4 English but I figure that my left leg is good for nothing so thats probably the english bit)

    Just noticed your name here and thought you might like to know I am actually from a tiny fishing village in Wales called the Mumbles.... yes that really is its name.

    Heh. Mumbles is my nickname on another forum. Curious, curious indeed...well, I'm woefully American. Especially in spelling--meaning I can't spell a bit. Hurray for the school system!
