    Hi there! Welcome, welcome, welcome! Welcome to the wonderful world of YWS. I hope you're enjoying it so far! I thought I'd stop by and leave a few review tips since it's one of the best ways to get involved with the community.

    How to Avoid Review Spam is a great resource for avoiding Review Spam - I also recommend these two resources - YWS Critique Sandwich and Review Templates - giving an interpretation and then pointing out specific areas they can improve on is always a great place to start.

    Another place to check out if you haven't already is the YWS Welcome Mat it has a quick run-down of some of the rules for YWS as well as resources for getting started. If you need any help finding your way around feel free to reach out to myself or any moderator! :)

    Best of luck in your writing endeavors!


    SkiiLabor8Flectigoal Happy Holidays!

    Hi and welcome to YWS! I'm Mage. If you have any questions about YWS, let me know!

    (And if I'm ever not online, junior moderators, global moderators and admins definitely would be able to help you out with any questions or concerns you have. Other YWSers would be happy to help you as well!)

    Before you get settled in, you might want to swing by the rules thread to see what's allowed on the site, and the FAQ thread to figure out how the site works. It explains a lot about the basics of the site, like how to post your works and how to get points. It was really useful to me back when I first joined the site, so hopefully it'll be just as useful for you! :)

    Some fun areas of the site you might want to learn more about are the forums, blogs and Roleplay Section. The forums have fun games, writing activities, and places to talk about whatever writing project you're working on. The blogs aren't used as much as the other sections of the site, but you can post little life updates there. And the Roleplay Section is a place to collaborate on stories—either by roleplaying or co-writing novel-style stories.

    I hope you enjoy your time on YWS!

    SkiiLabor8Flectigoal Thanks, it's really vast! I was scouting some roleplay and submitted a character for one!

    Hiya SkiiLabor, welcome to YWS! ^-^ I see you've done a review already, which is awesome! Anyways, here are some quick links that were helpful to me when I first joined:

    FAQ for New Users -> This post lists the basics of publishing and reviewing works on YWS.
    Knowledge Base -> This is a treasure trove of helpful articles about poetry, writing, reviewing, and more.

    Along with reviewing other ywsers' works and publishing your own works, you can have some fun in the Randomosity forum, join a roleplay, hang out on the People tab, or just explore the site. And of course, feel free to ask me or any moderator (junior or global) any questions you have! I hope you'll like it here! =D

    SkiiLabor8Flectigoal Thanks, all seems well organized 😊

    Spearmint For sure! C: Oh, and one more tip-- you can use the quote tag to quote the work while reviewing! It looks like this:
    something something

    You can use it if you want to point out anything in particular. :]

    The code is:
    Code: Select all
    [quote]something something[/quote]

    This is a comprehensive guide to bbcode on YWS: The Big Book of YWS Codes
    Happy reviewing!! :D
