    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Quiver, Oct 13, 2012.

    Salutations, everyone!

    The name is Quiver. Obviously I'm new to this forum, however, I've been on many forums before so I know how they work. May I just first say, the logo is amazing! The way the feather takes place of the 'F' is just genius.

    Anyway, I'm not sure how much posting I'll be doing, especially after reading the rules here. I just wanted a place where I could post my work and others could read it. Mibba just isn't doing it for me anymore.

    I have plenty of story ideas, and some stories already written. One I've been working on since sixth grade. Not much else to say really.

    I'm very active when it comes to forums that peak my interest.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Quiver!

    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 requirements. 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, Cogito, Lemex and Dante Dases) 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.

    Thank you for the warm welcome, and pardon my sarcasm, but I don't believe you typed that. I believe you typed it once and saved it, haha.

    Anyway, I've been over the rules; they're pretty similar to rules on forums I used to be on.

    Yes, some information needs to be delivered consistently. Many new members are in too much of a hurry to read the section labeled Important Information on the site home page, so this is another opportunity to direct them to what they need to know about the site.

    There are many ways to get your writing up for people to see. We're far more interested in helping you make your writing worth seeing. No matter how good you are already, you can always get better.

    Oh of course, no doubt about being able to get better. Hopefully this forum will pick up and I'll stick around. It's very interesting so far.
