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.
It just might be a little difficult to tell them apart right now because of of something called #RevMo - it's an event we hold every September. One of the rewards for it is getting a new username color, so some of the mods might not look like actual mods. That's the case with me! But if you want to know who's a mod, you can also check The YWS Team.)
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!
