    Sup people, what's good?

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by vVvRapture, Jun 22, 2012.

    Just figured I'd briefly introduce myself. I'm a bit of a former forum nerd so I can't not go to an introduction board first. :)

    I'm Dakota, aka vVv Rapture. I'm first and foremost a writer, but most people that know me know me through competitive gaming. I've been a blogger and podcast host/producer in the competitive gaming scene for several years now. I have my own blog over at vVv Gaming, and I hosted my own show for about a year and a half, which started just after I finished being the co-host of a different show for about four to five months.

    Anyway, as I said, I more so a writer. I'm here because I want to get back to writing creatively and because it motivates me to write when I post stuff online, I decided to register here and start posting with new material. I used to do writing and critiquing over at the old Nintendo Nsider Forums' reviews board, and I see that critiquing and reviewing here is a big deal, so I'm glad that I can get back into that, as well.

    So yeah, that's me. Hope to see all of you around the forums. :)

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Dakota!

    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.
