Greetings BradRepko, I, like many others, would like to welcome you here to the forum. I'm not really going to get into the opening advice right now, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask me in the chatbox, or PM any of the more experienced members for help.

I, Nyaha, on the other hand, do have opening advice. I say basically the same thing to everyone, so I'll just copy-paste. Some people here make very harsh-sounding criticisms, but please don't let it discourage you. Just separate the helpful advice from the negative-sounding words and use it to better your work. :3 Don't give up.

Also, I'm Nyaha, one of the friendliest people you'll likely meet in Felarya. Welcome. I look forward to RPing with you, Repko. ^_^

Seriously Nyaha, cut this crap out. Do you think its very encouraging for newbies coming in to be told "people will be harsh to your work"? Or "Just trying to sort through the negative sounding comments"?I mean, come on. Its not like some of the more in-depth critics here rip every single piece of writing to pieces, the only ones that get really poked at with a stick are the ones who need it. Even the "harsh" critiques are nearly always FAIR, and meant to help the writer. We don't spend half an hour writing an in-depth comment for an idea for nothing.

You're doing nothing but giving new members a negative first impression of the forum before they even make a post.

Also, welcome newcomers. Try not to let Nyaha scare you too much. He exaggerates greatly.

Im not trying to scare anyone, I just think we lose too many people because they feel their work is too harshly criticized. But I can see how the way I say it comes off as negative. Hmm, how do I rephrase it?

Please don't be discouraged by negative-sounding criticism. The other writers are only trying to help you get better. That's what I'm trying to say.

Honestly, though, you are exactly what I'm talking about. Why jump all over me and swear just because I'm trying to help out?

If someone comes onto a forum, that is specifically devoted to expanding and developing an established setting that people have been around for years...and can't handle any kind of critique, than this was not the environment for them to begin with.

This forum is a little more serious than the Felarya group on DA. We actually care about thinking more deeply, and trying to make Felarya a richer, more developed setting.

How about just saying hi? Not mentioning "negative-sounding criticism" at all? This thread is supposed to be about greeting new members, not trying to shove a preconeived view of the forum onto them before they make a post. Be optimistic and welcoming. Don't start off by telling them that monsters live under the beds.

I let it go the first time, but I can't just let you say that kind of crap to every single new member. Its not helping anyone.

Wo-ow-ow. What did I just read? An implied threatening?

I'll remind you that you have absolutely NO POWER above any other members. You're just a normal member, like anyone else, like 99% of this forum, rest being mods and karbo. You're not a mod, cliff. And I think Nyaha was in fact helping that new guy (hello, by the way!). The critics that are being given here arent what I call the BEST critics around and they certainly arent about praising. Worst, it tends to be way too negative.

Anyways, welcome to all the newcomers.

As for you, RCS619, I let it go this time.

...How was I threatening? I made no threats. I let his comments go the first time, but I can't just sit back and keep letting him say that kind of stuff without any other input.

That is where you're wrong. I'm a senior member, I've been here for years. Im one of the best people in this community and I AM a mod, I just currently lack my title and powers. They can take me out of the mods, but they can't take the mod out of me. I care about this community too much.

We've been over this before. Critiques don't HAVE to be positive, so long as they are fair and civil. Its not about balancing praise and criticism, its about being honest and blunt with the writer, to best help them improve.

thw whole instance of my message was: still up to this date, today, september eh...22nd, you are still a member. Just don't act like if you are on your horse and look up to us.

For the moment, fighting each other is like a super intense combat of 2 magikarps lvl 50 with splash being their only attack.

Send me a love note when you get back your modship Smile

And yes i love you too, even if you were sarcastic or not. <3

I agree. An argument isn't the right way. First of all I want to say that I don't care much about bad criticism. I'm an author of two books and many people told me that I am very good in writting. My personal problem is, perhaps you noticed it:

My english isn't the best of all. sweatdrop

I have written many Felarya-stories in my own language. But it would be difficult to translate them into english.

Oh, writing in English will help you a lot. That and reading in English. The Discworld novels helped me in that. Razz

Anyway... yes, this is not the right place for an argument. Let's go back to saying hi to newcomers. They need some nice welcoming...

For sure. I read a lot of english novels. But since I haven't english in school anymore, it becomes more difficult. The daily teaching is lacking.
