The following are the most commonly asked questions about this site and how to go about doing things here.

Sorry 'bout that.

Where is your Writing Resource Database? I can't find the writing resources at all. I looked in your main menu, but it's not listed.

I want to change the email address I signed up with to your site but can't find a way to modify my account. How do I change my address?
In a nutshell: You can't. You need to un-subscribe your existing e-mail account first, then re-subscribe using your new one. This allows our double opt-in system to double check to ensure that your filters and new ISP are allowing our e-mail to get through to the new address. It also updates your account information in our resource database. To do this input only your existing e-mail address in our sign up page, then scroll to the bottom of the page and choose List Option: "Un-subscribe". Follow the instructions. Then, once un-subscribed, return to the sign up page, fill in all of the required blanks, and subscribe using your new e-mail address. http://www.fwointl.com/FWOSignup.html

On the left hand side of every page there is our menuing system. Even this page has the menu, see over there to the top left? <---- Look for the command 'Links and Resources', up near the top of the menu. You'll find them by clicking that command and going through to the next page. Also, see the command 'Control Panel', it gives a summary of all the system commands available to you here.

When I first became a member I saw a page that had a list of ezines, supporters and free e-book downloads, but I can't seem to find it again. It also had a button to refer friends. Where is it?
On the left hand side of every page, under the sub-menu "Extras", you will find a link called "Supporters/Welcome". Click there.

For free downloads, the top right corner of every page has a link called 'Free Download Centre'. Click there for free "stuff".

I'd like to volunteer, but I don't have a lot of time and I don't know what I can do for you.
That's ok, we'll find something for you to do. The first thing to do is to let us know that you'd like to help out, what you think you might like to do and how much time you can give us. We'll find a spot for you - guaranteed! And you can use us as a reference if you need to in the future. Before you email us though, have you read over our Volunteer/Internships Page?
If so, then feel free to email our admin @ fwointl.com department with the appropriate subject line.

How do I add links to your database?
There are two ways. If you just want to post a few, then go into our database ["Links and Resources" command in the left hand menu] and you will find an "Add" button at the top of the database menu. Click there and follow the instructions. If you want to add 10 or more links to the database, send an email to our site manager RowdyRhodes @ fwointl.com and let him know the details. He'll work it out with you.

Do you accept submissions?
Yes we do. Actually we strongly encourage them. Submissions are published in our "Inkwell Newswatch (IN) Writing and Literary Ezine", although sometimes we will run them in our "Writers Site News!" text mailing. There's an "IN Submissions" link in the left hand menu of this page you can use or, alternatively you can go directly to our "Send IN Your Submissions" page.

Why don't you pay for the articles that you publish?
The simple fact of the matter is that we can't afford to pay -- yet. This is a voluntary contribution site. All revenue is put back into maintaining the open door, free membership policy that we have and that you use. That way all writers, rich or poor, can have access to exemplary writing resources. Maybe you can give a little ... today?

Is this site ever going to become a paid membership site?
No - at least we hope we won't have to. As long as there are contributions to the site from our members, a few good hearted advertisers, and the owner has the extra money in his pocket to help out, we hope to always be free. We understand what it's like to be short on cash. We also understand that sometimes it is better to give than to receive. Maybe you can give a little ... today?

I posted my site into your database but it hasn't shown up! What gives?
We manually validate all writing resource site additions before they go online. We sort out the sales hype from the real resources. This takes time. Currently we have 10,000 items in the queue that need to be sifted through. Please be patient. If it never shows up, then it's a good indication that we don't consider the link to be an actual writing resource, but more of a sales site. Try sending it to our admin @ fwointl.com department and ask about advertising on our site.

Do you stand behind all of the resources here and use them yourselves.
No and Yes. Yes, we use quite a lot of the links personally. No, we do not profess any guarantees about the quality or validity of other people's web sites. We do try to maintain a high level of screening, but it is impossible for us to provide wide spread assurances for thousands of systems. We suggest that you use common sense when getting involved with any web site or offer.

How do I contact you?
Providing individual technical and customer support is a very time consuming task. We prefer to use our time more effectively to operate this system, install and provide enhancements and develop new offerings of interest to our members. Please use this contact address sparingly. With that said, if we have not answered your question above, please feel free to email RowdyRhodes @ fwointl.com. He'll get back to you as soon as humanly possible.
