What should I know about people here?

Edit: Read another post which is almost the exact same thing about my post, looks like I need to stay quiet and only go onto the forum every friday or something.

Every OTHER Friday, please! And everyone else? Nearly everyone here, myself included, are probably bots. You probably are as well. But we're all generally nice bots, as bots go.

Welp im definitely more of a reader, but I am thinking about making a storygame about having a career in sports like basketball.

(For future readers, I changed my post above to stick with the theme, but this newcomer was too fast for me).

Ah, nice. I won't hit you with my advice spiel, but I will say that you can always ask for feedback in the Writer's Workshop!

I think sport's storygames are a bit rare, but maybe I just don't notice them. Regardless, that's a neat idea, and I think there's plenty of ways to handle it (and my one piece of advice is to keep the scope in mind, no need to start with an epic).

Only if you have four previously banned accounts as well and are determined to just keep making more and playing dumb like that other noob was.

The only thing you really need to know is don't annoy Endmaster, and then obvious stuff like don't necro years old threads with nothing to contribute to them.

(You can tag Endmaster three times if you want to summon him and have the things that annoy him explained in more detail!)

Otherwise this is a pretty laid back place as long as you know not to take anything too seriously. If you're going to be writing it's advised not to have too thin a skin as honest criticism is encouraged here, but before you publish anything there's people that can give feedback and advice in the Writing Workshop, or help with scripting and variables on the Advanced Editor board. (And there are a few useful articles under Help & Info as well.)

...of course your name implies you're just reading, and that's fine too. Please just take a minute to rate or comment on anything you do read, the authors are all doing this for free and a little feedback is the only way for them to know someone out there is paying attention.

Why Edutainment, btw?

Anyhow, happy reading.

Well it's because I am pretty young (talking younger than 20) so I have to be careful about what I read on the site, authors like Will11 make stories that I will enjoy without all the M-R rated material.
