Welcome to the site if you have any questions feel free to ask,you might want to visit the YWO groups-clubs (if you hadn't already joined anyone).Some advice which might be helpful to you are:
  1. watch in your profile for how many points you have before attempting to post something( having post in the newbie zone ,you shouldn't have points to post-start a thread unless you critique something)
  2. when you post a part of your story or any writing -be carefull to check it one more time before finally sending it(you might find small-stupid mistakes made by you or the system of the site)
  3. as Rose may say -try your critiques to be throughout and elaborated - it could be kind of boring and tiring but you would get use to it-it's actually fun to critique someone's work!
  4. and last but not least try to be polite as much as you can
I am giving you these advices cause you may not have the time right now to read all the guidelines and the rules (which you should read eventually)

Othr question you may want to answer:

Have you any pets?
Do you play any instrument?
What's the place-country that you dream someday to go to?
Which is the one word that could discribe-express you generally-the most?
What's your favourite movie?
Did you hate the whole interogation thing ?




ps Rose,I didn't know you become a crit sheriff-congrants.

Welcome! I almost misread your post and thought you were from England, but then you said "soccar" and I knew otherwise. I play soccer too, but my team just disbanded. I'm trying out for another next week, so fingers crossed.

We shall be very happy to tell you some truth, and it's good you want to hear it. I'll tell you this, though -- you already know the truth about sports.

That was the joke...perhaps...I ruined the joke by explaining it and thus ruining their experience and spoiling them? Suimasen! I'm ruining your lives! Suimasen suimasen! (Yes, I know this is spam, but I'm in an Ai Kaga fervor)
