Hello! I'm Armorath, as you can tell from my username, and I'm new here, obviously. I like many things such as Tumblr, Doctor Who, Homestuck, Sherlock, Legend of Zelda, and many other things that I'm just not remembering right now. I like to think that I am an okay writer, although I know that probably isn't true. I'm kind of crazy, along with my friends, and I have an odd obsession with mangos. I'm glad to have finally found this place, so that I can start writing my wacky stories and be critiqued on them.

Hi Armorath, welcome to YMO. I like your name, does it mean anything?

No, my username doesn't mean anything. I was just thinking of the right username to use, and I came up with Armorath. Also, I was wondering what the "Points" on the left side of the screen were about. How do you gain "Points"? And what do they do?

Points are what we use so that we can post stories/poems/our creative junk. You gain points by critiquing (well!) other people's work - the better the critique, the more points you can gain for it (up to a maximum of 10). When you submit your work you lose a certain amount of points that correspond with the section you posted it in.

Yes. And one day, the world will be infected by the Homestuck disease, AND WE SHALL CONQUER THE WORLD!

Thank you! I was wondering what it was about, and the FAQ didn't have an answer, (Or, at least I never found an answer) so thanks a bunch!
