How to get started?
« on: September 19, 2011, 11:53:19 AM »
At one point, someone made a posting of advice on how to get RPs.  Does anyone know where this ran off to?  It included such things as setting up O/Os, engaging people in conversation, and the like.  It would be very useful to have available for people who find themselves struggling to get started.

I seem to remember a post entitled "How to gather yourself a harem on Elliquiy" or something like that. Can't recall who it was by though.

I could only find this one, but it's more a reminder of etiquette than anything else.  (Searched for 'harem' and went through 10 pages of results.)

It's not the one I remember, but I'll file it away as one possible reference to give out.

I wrote a guide for another site. I think I will post it up somewhere. I wonder where is appropriate, though?

Excellent!  That's exactly the one I remembered seeing!

I've also posted up the one I wrote a few months back.

How to find a writing partner

If it has anything of interest.

Yes, that was the one I was thinking of. I'm afraid I'm not aware of any others. I think a primer on "getting started and meeting other writers at E" would be very helpful, particularly ways to make your game request thread titles and contents more appealing and informative.

Wait!

I found one!

*smacks Haibane on a deliciously wonderful place*  ::)

These are very worthwhile threads. I'm not sure they count as "tutorials" as the tutorials are more for using Elliquiy. They are more like helpful "tips." Perhaps it might be a good new section in the members only related to "tips" like these:

Thoughts on GMing
Effective Recruitment
Finding a Writing Partner

Other things could include things like the Oath of Drake and such.
