BTW, just so you know--don't worry if you get something wrong your first foray into this space. The software for the forums is wonky. You are surrounded by friends and supportive mentors! Just go with the flow.

This is why I like NYCM so much. Most people are extremely helpful and supportive. :)

i appreciate this guidance, but to me it is not very simple or easy to follow, and when i try to edit my profile it now doesnt accept the email i've always had associated with my name. after an hour and a half, i'm no closer to getting it, is there any reason why it's so complicated?

Maybe you're having bad luck because the forum is wonky right now. Are you putting the url tags around your story link?

Thanks for this advice - I'm a newbie and have already made a blooper (posted a link to my story on somebody else's topic - oops).  Fixed it now! I might have to earmark this somehow for ease of reference! Cheers

Hi! Noob here, I am trying to hyperlink the title of my short in a new topic, however when I save the google drive shareable link to my clip board it doesn't show up in the drop down menu for the hyperlink button. I feel silly having this problem but maybe someone here can aide me? Thank you!

Hi purplegooofballface (love the name )

To get feedback on your story, you should start by creating a new message in the Short Story Challenge  sub forum. (Go to that forum and click the New Topict button at the top of the message list).

Put the link to your google document in that post.  You'll then find a URL at the top of your screen for that post - copy this, and put it into your signature.  Then people will be able to click on the link to find your post (and your story).

Hope this helps.

Hey Joe!  It been so long since I have...

No idea why that line jumped into my head.  Olongopo isn't like that anymore, right?

Bump for the new folks just now joining the forums.
