Strolen- In the line where you say don't do errors, you spelled errors wrong. Just throwing that out there, cause bad grammer and spelling, as you write, "Nothing screams I don't care than submittting someting with lot erors!" Second bullet, top. Otherwise, a good sub for newbies. Also, one question (seeing as I am new), when do I stop being "Dazed and confused?" Go to Comment
This somehow needs to be sent to all new members of the site in as a link in a PM somehow so they can read it. As a matter of fact a codec of helpful subs should be sent to every new members as a sort of required reading if you will to help them along. Possibly to help stave off those thinking they need to copy and paste other works to get good votes and focus more on their own work. I likes it... yess I's doos' Go to Comment
Personally, I get a little disappointed sometimes if I get an average less than 3.5 (and sometimes 4 for specific subs) on any of my subs that aren't 'abandoned ideas' . In this sense, the bit about the vote of three in this article helped me to realign my perspectives to a more realistic level (they tend to become skewed quite easily as I sometimes just set just so high an expectations for myself that it becomes unrealistic) and is my favourite. Anyway, a good article for newbies in term of preparing them for the site. Go to Comment
A warning and a promise. I like it! I STILL remember how much I agonized over that first submission, but as a result I spent a lot of time on it and it showed. Wish I could have read this first, though. Go to Comment
Update: Since we didn't have anything for the newbie area of the citadel area, I figured this was at least a start. I made it a wiki so if you know of other additions that would fit (or new categories to add) this is a great place to put them all together!
Hope you join in and add to it.
