IMPORTANT
In this past October (2020) the Shifti Community lost Chris "Robotech Master" Meadows to an accident involving an SUV hitting his electric bike and leaving the scene. While we may never know the full story of this event, the administrators of Shifti will work to preserve his account and works here as he'd wish us to. Thank you all for being such excellent people.

All right, new member here! Just joined after remembering what the name of the site was XP. Well, For those of you that don't know, I'm an amateur writer (as most likely many of us are X3) Uhh.... yeah.. kinda tired so I'll keep this short XP

I've been writing since I was 11-12, though I've been on an on-and-off basis, where I get really interested in writing, and I write for several months.. and then I take a break for another 3-4 months.

Currently, I'm starting to get bakc into writing, after a 5 month break x_x So yeah... though tha break was unintentional... the computer I was using to store my stories got a Virus or something, so I had to completely wipe the memory from my computer... which.. kinda left me depressed, and so yeah... I need to restart my stuff.

I'm gonna try to write soon, whenever I;m not busy with work. I'll try to have a sample story up by 3/12/09, or maybe even a chapter/short story by then.

anyways, yeah, see you guys soon ^^

Welcome!

Welcome to Shifti! Always glad to see new contributors. This is a bit of a standard boilerplate introduction that will hopefully help get you started on some of the basics you might not have noticed. Firstly, there's a main index of help pages at Help:Contents - a link is provided in the default sidebar titled "Help." It's a good idea to browse through the table of contents there so you'll know what information is available should you need it.

If you're here to post stories, there's a guide specifically for the basics of that over at Help:Posting stories. General editing assistance is at Help:Editing, and information about how to use talk pages (like this one) is at Help:Talk pages. If any of the formatting seems esoteric at first, don't worry - wikis are collaborative and other editors and administrators will come around to help tidy up anything that's left in a messy state, if you want. The more complex details can be learned later as you go.

You can set up a personal homepage for yourself at your root user page, which you can find by clicking on your user name at the top of the page. Use your user page however you see fit; most authors generally list their stories there, along with a bit of biographical information about themselves and perhaps some links to other websites. See Help:User pages.

If you have any questions, you can either click the edit link for this page and write it here or you can follow the link in my signature to my own home page and leave it in the talk page over there. You can find a list of Shifti's administrators at Shifti:Administrators. Once you've got your bearings, feel free to delete this welcome message from your user talk page.

And with that boilerplate out of the way, let me be the first to say "Welcome to Shifti and Enjoy Your Stay!" -- ShadowWolf 05:02, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
