Hey guys!

I'm new to the site and already so confused!!!!
It seems like a really nice community where everyone can review each other's work and post their own :D
I'm keen and enthusiastic to get stuck in - reviewing stories that interest me and I hope you will do the same!! Signing up to this site has been top of my to-do list for several weeks now, and finally I've found the courage!!!
I'm so excited!!!!
Can't wait to read and write!!!

Hey Chloe! :) Welcome to YWS. I hope you enjoy your stay XD

I am 567ajt, a specialist in dark poetry and non-linear novels. I am also an avid reviewer, and I mainly look out for potential and substance to a piece of writing. YWS is also a great community for sharing each other's opinions as well as writing about other's work. If you are in a serious debate kind of mood, there is a forum dedicated to it. Want to chat casually chat/play games with others? Join in The Lounge. Wanna participate in a storybook? Feel free.

Now you know the things you should do, here are a few rules that carry to other sites.

1) No offensive reviews. You may add profanity in your works as long as you have a rating onto it, or a note in the description, but do not use swearing in a review.
2) Plagiarism. This is a giant no-no here on YWS, so make sure that what you are posting is your work.
3) No spam reviews. You may not be punished for this, but it is very irritating. Don't try and use a lot of words just to get points [I know this from experience LOL] as this is a bit unfair on the writer.
4) Have fun! Enjoy writing and critiquing. If someone writes a critique you disagree with ask them about it, by either posting on their wall or Private Messaging them.

Have fun! Again, if you need anything, PM me or post a message on my wall. You may even want to go into the Chatroom and chat with users of YWS for further advice. Thanks!

Ho Chloe, welcome aboard. :pirate3:

YWS is indeed an amazing community, and I'm happy you like to sound of it. The site can be a little confusing though, and therefore if you have any questions feel free to drop me a message (alternatively, check this out!)

So, what do you like to write? Poetry, fiction, everything? :)

See you around,

Welcome! One thing I must say is that if you want to get reviews, you have to give lots without expecting a lot in return. As a fairly new member myself, these are things I've had to get used to. If you have any questions, you've heard the shpeel, PM me or post on my wall.
