Hello and welcome to YWS! I'm Mage. Feel free to come to me if you ever have any questions about YWS.
(If I'm ever not on, junior moderators, global moderators and admins definitely would be able to help you out with any questions or concerns you have, and your fellow members would be happy to help 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 storybook 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 storybook section is a place to collaborate on stories - either by co-writing novel-style stories, or by taking part in roleplays.
I hope you enjoy your time on YWS, and feel free to ask me any questions you have about how the site works!

Call me Mory.
Welcome to YWS, to start with.
Then, I did not expect a newcomer to already begin to Follow me, as I'm a newcomer myself. I don't have much to show, currently, so, I'm surprised and curious to know why you'd even bother.
I also promised myself I'd try to engage with people a bit more socially, so, I try to do that one step at a time. In your case, it's because you're a fellow newcomer.
At any rate, Whatchamacallit already gave you all the info you need to get started. Here's to hope you'll find yourself a project to dedicate your time to.
I'll be going, now. Have yourself a fun time.♠Mory

Hello and welcome to YWS!
I'm whatchamacallit, but you can also call me whatcha or Loonz! I'd be glad to answer any questions you have about the site. Any other junior moderators, as well as global moderators and admin are here to help and answer questions, too!
These are some handy links you might find helpful with getting started on the site:
- The Welcome Mat is a great place to get information about the website. You can check out the FAQ thread, or create a post in the Questions and answers forum.
- The rules thread is good to check out, so you know what's allowed on the site!
- The Big Book of YWS Codes has everything you need to know about formatting.
Also, if you're unsure where to start when it comes to reviewing, the Critique Sandwich and Review templates are really useful resources!
Since this is a writer's site, what are your favourite genres to write? I personally tend to write poetry, but I also dabble in writing fantasy and YA fiction.
Hope to see you around! <3
