Hello and welcome to YWS! I'm Icy, one of the Junior Moderators on the site. Feel free to come to me if you ever have any questions about YWS. You can click the reply button below this message or if you prefer, click on my username and that will take you to my profile. From there, you can leave a message on my wall or send me a PM (to the right under my avatar). If I'm ever not around, junior moderators , global moderators and admins would definitely be able to help you out with any questions or concerns you might have, and you'll find that your fellow members would be happy to help as well.
In your journey to get acquainted with the site, you might want to swing by the rules thread to see what's allowed here, 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 reviews work. If you have any questions about anything you find, don't hesitate to ask.
I hope you enjoy your time on YWS! We're thrilled to have you here <3

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.
(We actually recently revamped the RP Section, so there's lot of cool stuff to check out there!)
I hope you enjoy your time on YWS!
