And Check out the tabs on the Left side bar: so much hidden in there! *Wink*

"There's someone that you haven't already met, go introduce yourself to him or her. Walls and labels can't keep you from the people who are so similar to you in spirit. There's a friendly face behind every door if you pick the right moment to knock. Once you start your wave of creative outreach, it turns into a contagious force. People are waking up and smiling at each other, sharing their dreams without hesitation. This community is worth something."

Letter from the editor

*Shock*Ah!! I am looking for help or connection and cannot remember where I saw the information!!

I'll bet we have all felt like that even if we have used "Writing.Com 101, where all of our magics can be found. I know I have especially when it comes to tech stuff! *Laugh* I am still learning all the fine print!

So let's look at where you can go for help! I am sure you experienced members will bear with us.*Wink*

*Star* WDC is a vast cyberspace and provides support in many ways. My focus today is on its several forums each with specific purposes! Let's look at them. *Magnify*

*Burstr* For specific Help you can choose:

*Computer* Here other members can help with WDC related or computer related issues. A place to come to solve glitches! Sometimes, only The StoryMaster or upper tech staff can address such matters.
eg. reviews not showing up, or formatting or account issues, issues with news feeds or emails etc or some feature not working properly.

*Up*These are NOT chat or discussion oriented...but focus on question and answers! *Smile*

Both of these forums can be found quickly under the Left side Tab Writing.Com Tools. You can also put them on your favourites by clicking on the plus at the top of the forum.

*Magnify*Now you can choose the right one for your query. *Bigsmile*

*Heartp* You are also welcome to directly ask another Member, who has been here a while! *Wink* eg. Moderators are there to assist and point you in the right direction. Forums may increase the speed of getting a response as more folks may see your query given all the time zones! *Wink*

*Delight*So, don't sweat the small stuff. Take your time. Maybe keep a few of these items in your notepad or favourites for ease. And continue in your adventures writing and exploring WDC!

Thanks for reading!
