    Well... When you come to a forum, the first thing you see is its portal (if there is one). Anything can be put there (for example, some news about the main subject of the forum), but one thing that every portal has is an introduction where it's explained what the forum is about and everything else a new member or someone who is thinking of becoming one should know. From portal you can move on to the forum itself with all its topics.

    Yes, I invited her. Smile

I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant. None of those things, however, came out of my mouth. All I was able to do was turn to Liesel Meminger and tell her the only truth I truly know. I said it to the book thief and I say it now to you. I AM HAUNTED BY HUMANS.”

    The reporter (the old teen one got ditched):
    After a large and extensive publicity campaign by four members of the TWCG (Maris, LadyCobweb, Thalia and Mac) and the latter spammed YA to his heart's wish Joce, the site admin, has discovered. We wait to see what she makes of this while she was away.

    The publicity campaign's results are still to be discovered, however, the outlook appears to be good after a new member, Tania, joined.

    Joce, that's lovely! Great idea. I think you should add a 'hello, welcome to the TWCG where ...' though Smile Or the portal Very Happy

    In a way, yes. Though, an 'about' page wouldn't necessarily have to be the first thing you see when you get on the forum. We could have an 'about' page instead of portal. Or a little pop-out window with all that information - that would also be good because I think only guests would see it. Whatever Joce prefers. Smile

    EDIT: Oh, Joce already did it! I agree with Mac, it should say 'welcome' and a few things about the forum explaining what it's all about. Smile
    I like the chatbox too. Smile

    Hmm... maybe I'm the only one who thinks it looks terrible. Good idea, and something I know how to do. OOhh , there's a blog feature. Okay and done. Hmm, small problem, topics from the Critique Center are displayed.

    Um... We posted a lot about it. And I spammed YA xD 'K not really but I posted the link on a few 'any good critique sites?' questions. And so did everyone else. I hope we did a good job, there was a lot of page views Smile

    The portal is cool! I have the chatbox on one tab and this in another and when I opened this I found the portal and I was like 'WHAT'S THIS?' (In a good way)

    Er... the awesome chatbox when you uh scroll down on the front page?

    Not much. The site changes have been the main thing but they just made lots of posts - character interview forum! That is the best forum EVER. I need to post more on my story so that I can have my antagonist interviewed.

    That's gonna be fun Very Happy Wish I could reveal more:P
