    Welcome!


    Hiya GaleOVonne, welcome to YWS! ^-^ This is a wonderful place for readers, writers, poets, roleplayers, and just people in general, and we're thrilled you're here! Here are some quick links you might want to check out:

    FAQ for New Users This post lists the basics of publishing and reviewing works on YWS.
    Official YWS Rules & Guides Here are our site rules. Essentially, please be a decent person and be considerate of others. :]
    Knowledge Base This is a treasure trove of helpful articles about poetry, writing, reviewing, and more. One useful thread is the Big Book of YWS Codes, which is a guide to the bbcode that you can use on YWS to add colors, images, and more! Plus, see the list of icons (like ) here and the list of smilies (like :smt003 and :daddarth) here.
    Review Tips This post has links to a ton of resources on reviewing. Reviews are how we give and receive feedback on our works on YWS! Please do not use AI or copy-paste reviews, as most writers are looking for unique human feedback. ^^ I know reviewing can be tough sometimes, especially if you feel like there's nothing to critique, but it gets easier with practice! And here is a great resource for reviewing writers more skilled than you.

    Along with reviewing other ywsers' works and publishing your own works, you can have some fun in the Randomosity forums, 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! (You can hit the little black arrow below this post to reply right now.) I hope you'll like it here! =D

When your heart gets pierced with arrows, don't rip them out and pierce those around you in retribution for your hurt. You'll only unnecessarily wound others and bleed to death yourself.
