I thought there were six since Rosey Unicorn owns 6 badges. But then I noticed that there were 2 Reviewer II badges, is it possible to have the same badge more than once?

Another question, how to make the font larger?

Rosey and Jabber have six badges because of a bug--they somehow got one of them multiplied! Crazy stuff, I know.

And to make the font larger, it's just a little bit of coding.

Code: Select all
Larger Font: [size=150]text[/size]
Huge Font: [size=200]text[/size]

Question!!!
I just posted something today. After I posted the piece, and I looked at my profile to see if it was updated on my portfolio. Then I realized that the same post was shown three times! I lost 300 points, just like I would have if I had posted three things instead of just one. How do I delete the posts(it shows soft delete post, and I have no Idea what that means)? Can I get my points back?
The links are:
viewtopic.php?t=88936
viewtopic.php?t=88937
viewtopic.php?t=88938
I only want the last one ):

*Edit
Okay never mind I just deleted them.

Thanks so much! And I think the posts were automatically deleted. Somehow.

Hi, Maria!

Once you've submitted a story on the YWS forums, you can view them all in your Portfolio! Go to your Profile (by clicking "My Profile" at the very, very top of the page or go under "My YWS" below the header and select "View my Profile" from there), and navigate to the Portfolio tab of your profile. You'll find all your works posted on the site!

If you don't see it there, then you might not have posted it as you thought. You submit your works in the "Submit" button below the header at the top (near "My YWS") and just follow the steps accordingly!
I make my own policies.

Folks,I don't have command over English as it is my third language. Yeah!I'm Indian. :D Here, I've noticed that we need points to post a chapter which in turn can be earned by reviewing others work. I don't think, I've experience to critique and find errors in others work and grammar is also worst. Do you think, I'd be able to survive here? If you have any suggestion then please guide me because I've only 19 points with and still four books and 28 chapters are to be posted.
Spoiler! :
Donate couple of points to fellow depressed writer 'cause those who donate me. Motivate me!

Gaw, a lot of people start without any experience to review. Believe me, I did, and now I consider myself to be an okay one. You can survive here! All you have to do is practice. When you're going through something, think about it. Even if you're not picking apart all the grammar and taking apart the plot, you can still general impressions, what you liked about it, what you didn't, what sounded funny in your head, and stuff like that. As for the chapters to post, if you need points, go to the 'Be the first to review' button You get extra points for reviewing those works. Remember that all reviews need to be... I think it's 300+ words to get the max. Just work at it, and you'll pick it up in no time. If you're still confused, there are all kinds of threads that help explain how to do reviews in better detail. Here are a few: The Review sandwhich! Everything you need to know about reviewing, basically.

hope I helped. *scampers away*

*Edit* Now I feel bad for answering that question, since I looked back and saw that only mods have been answering questions.... D: It won't happen again guys... <3

Nein! We answer the questions only because we're the first to see it. Everyone's welcome to answer anything and everything.

What do people mean by getting featured? A couple of reviewers of my work have said they hope I get feature, what does this mean?! Thanks :)

It just means if your story gets one of the highest number of 'likes' in the past three days, it gets to be featured on the YWS homepage.
