    Please don't laugh, but what is supposed to go in the "Title" bar?

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by mlssablk, Sep 2, 2012.

    Yes, I'm new and hope everyone remembers what that is like. Plus, I'm pretty sure I have less clue than you did in the beginning. Anyhow, I'm looking for someone to help me get going in the whole of the writing process. Basically, be there to answer some very basic, off-the-beaten-path ones, and then some composition explanations. Is there a spell check button anywhere?

    God, Please be nice...

    Hello Misty! I don't think anyone has a clue at the beginning. If you use Chrome of Firefox, there should be spell check built in to your browser.

    Welcome! When you get things figured out, please explain them to the rest of us ...

    Welcome to Writing Forums, mlssablk!

    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, 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.

    The title field really only matters when you're creating a new thread. Then, it's your opportunity to tell people, at a glance, what the thread is about.

    I wish more people did pay attention to the title, truth be told. Thread titles like A question... or Need some help please are completely uninformative, but we see such thread titles all the time.

    So I'm not laughing at all. It's a good question.

    As for spell checking, you can get that from some browser programs other than Internet Explorer. It's not built into the site. But depending on spell checkers will get you into all kinds of trouble. :)

    Welcome to the site.
