Tis An Art To A Good Forum.
I have been a member of this forum for over a year now but it's only after I started a forum of my own that I realised how hard it is to keep one going and the effort one has to put into it. …..
Anyway as most of you will know the Reviewwriters Forum is run by Rachael (Thingywhatsit) and is mainly a writer's site. Most people are usually put of a site by the signing up process but here you just pick a user name (which is usually best being your site name) and give your email address and as soon as you get an email back you are ready to go……….
On logging onto the site you can see at the bottom which other members are online at the same time as you and you do have the facility to private message them. You are of course met with a cartoon picture of Rach holding up pens but hey don't let that frighten you off the site or give you sleepless nights ….
The site has three main sections which are Site Info, Review Site Talk and Members Fun Area and it does have a little bit of everything to keep almost everyone happy. There is always a bugger that is never happy. "Yeah you Art, you are always in a mood and you just drag me down". "So what's in these sections anyway?" "Patience my friend, read on!"………..
OK hands up if you have an idea what is in this section; ok put all your hands down now you bunch of smartasses. Naturally this section contains all the help you will need to get the full benefit from your time on the site. Firstly there are the rules of the site which still a lot of people don't bother their lazy ass reading. "You didn't read them that time Rach told you off for naming a member" "Yeah but I didn't say I wasn't lazy did I so button it as I am writing a review" I will explain the naming rule etc when I get to the review site talk section ok..Anyway the site info contains other things like welcoming new members which is a nice touch. Someone joins and most of the current members pop on to a thread to say welcome to you. For some reason nobody welcomed me, cant for the life of me work out why not. You can also sign up for a monthly Newsletter which is posted straight to your email, jeeeez you didn't actually think it got posted to yer door, get real. Anyway there are loads more but you need to join to see it all for yourself…..............
Review Site Talk:
This is in my eyes the main area of interest as it covers all the writing sites. It has a section on Ciao, Dooyoo, Other writing sites, Epinions and Trivago. Please note Trivago has absolutely no connection at all with Dr Zhivago, tis an easy mistake to make..........
I log on to this bit if Ciao has gone down or I am having problems with the site. Because some member will have logged on and started a discussion on it. I only look at the Ciao and Dooyoo section as to be honest I don't use any other writing sites but in the section about other writing sites you may find another one that takes your fancy. It is a fun side of the site as well because you also get light-hearted banter as well about the every day things about Ciao and Dooyoo that perhaps piss you off.
