Basically: Is a "referral" here the good kind (bringing more people to the site) or bad kind (I did something wrong)?
Good kind. It means you brought people to the site.

Lol, that actually might be a good thing to put in the rules or guidelines or whatever. Thanks points and the check mark/red flag, too.

I'm just confused.

Well, a thread is what you just replied to. The way you create one is to click "new thread" at the top left of the Newbie Zone (or any other area). It'll look like this:



You write whatever you want in a thread. For your introduction thread, you should tell us a bit about yourself, what you like to write and read, and anything else you want us to know. In the Writing Forum threads, you would post your stories or poems. Each separate forum tells you what types of threads go there, so just read the description underneath to see if your thread fits.

Does that clear things up for you? If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

Hi! I was wondering about those ranks. Do those posts include critiques?

Your post count increases when you post critiques, so yes. The only time posts don't count towards your overall post number are when you're posting in the Random Games forum.

Thanks so much!

Well.... I did make a thread.... but It was a prologue to a story I was writing... Because I didn't see that you (Majyk) had replied to my question.... so....

So here is an other question.
How can I find the thread I posted?

I can't find it. I lost it?
LOL!

Thanks so much!
Write on!

It seems that your thread was deleted. Usually, the reason is that you haven't done a proper critique before you posted. Normally, you can find your thread by clicking on your portfolio. But since you most likely need to do a critique first, you can check out the Critique Guidelines to find out what types of critiques we want at YWO. And if you want an example of a critique or want to talk about critiquing, you can ask me of course, or one of the Crit Sheriff's, as their job revolves around critiques. They can be found here.

And if you have any more questions, feel free to send me a private or visitor message.

Hello, I'm new to this forum, and I was wondering If I could find people who could critique a story that I'm writing and hoping to publish some day. I just am not sure what to do. Could I have some help? Thanks
