    Hey there! Welcome to the wonderful world of YWS. :)

    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!

    Heya! Welcome to the site - we're so happy to have you here.

    Here are some helpful links to start! We have the Site Rules: Official YWS Rules & Guides

    Some guidance on posting your works on this site are also included in that link above.

    Guidance on the point system and how to review:
    "Review Sandwich"
    Reviewing the Gentler Way
    A Rundown on Reviewing

    If you ever have a question about the site or need help with something writing or YWS-related feel free to ask me or any of the mods and admins. You can find us using username colours: junior moderators are this shade of green, global moderators are another shade of green and admins are this colour. You could also post a general question in Ask a question here (or start a new topic!) or even on your wall!

    Hope you have a wonderful time here!

    Liminality Another good link to check out is the Content Ratings Guidelines which show you how to select categories for your work. Happy writing!
