WLC Forum Etiquette
Forums are discussion areas for our members. Please be respectful and do not use the forums as a marketing platform. You are dealing with other professional writers and authors. Please don't spam them.
HOW WLC FORUMS WORK
The forums have two parts - The Container (think of this as the main header for each forum, such as "Fiction Authors" ), the Forum itself (These are the main categories, such as "Children's Book Authors")--and then, the Topics. The Topics are where you will post to start new "threads". Posting a new topic in a forum is called a "thread".
Click in the appropriate Container and you will come to the list of Forums. Click into the Forum to enter that particular forum area and to post.
You can post a new topic once you are in the appropriate Topic forum.
You can answer posts - Reply - when you are in any of the threads.
SUBSCRIBING TO POSTS
Don't forget to subscribe to the posts that you enjoy. You can subscribe by clicking SUBSCRIBE located on the bottom left of the first post in each thread. This will enable you to receive an email for updates to the thread.
If you get stuck, just post HELP as your subject and one of our awesome moderators will come to your aid, or send us an email using the Contact form located in the top menu.
If you feel someone has spammed our boards, please contact us using the Contact form, and type "SPAM ALERT" in the subject line. We are staffed by volunteers, and cannot always be watching every post. Your help is truly appreciated.
Looking forward to chatting!
