    Thank you! You've been added to the first post. Resources have been added to the front page, as well as a page on mental illness and abusive relationships. I'll add more pages as I think of them.

    WafflesMgee, right now I've got your contact information as "PM", but if there are some alternate ways you prefer, let me know.
    Similarly, GuardianTempest, it would help if you'd link your DeviantArt (GuardianTempest on DA is a deactivated account). I don't actually know what VM is, so if that's something you can link, that would be helpful.

    I know that this place is inactive, but it helps a lot to post and show that these services really are out there.

    VM Stands for Visitor Messages, perhaps I should've mentioned that at the start. Also, Here's a link to my DeviantArt account.

    The front page has been edited.

    Just a note, there's a sort of format for if you're being a server. Copied from the Servers and Reference Information section:

    To get listed under Services, just make a post here or PM me with the following information:
    • The service(s) you are willing to offer (e.g., feedback, ideas discussion, proofreading). Please make sure that you can actually deliver on whatever you're offering.
    • Your focus in writing/details on service(s) (i.e., your writing strengths).
    • The type of writing you are willing to work with (e.g., wRHG pages, poetry, short fiction, essays, first drafts). Please only work with things you have some experience with.
    • Anything you would like your patrons to do before contacting.
    • Preferred method(s) of contact.
    • (If desired) links to examples of your service or writing.


    If you are offering information services (meaning strictly reference, not discussing hypotheticals or ideas), list your topics, sorted by the following:
    • Your firsthand experience (Things that you actually do or have had happen to you)
    • Your secondhand experience/knowledge (Things you have studied. Only list topics you're confident about.)
    • Information you have access to from other sources (Most likely firsthand experience from a friend)
    • Preferred method(s) of contact.


    If you don't fill in a part, I'm going to make up some generic default answer.

    Eh, as far as resources go if anyone has a character who lives in an apartment but lives at home in real life, I can be a little bit of a hand. For a visual reference, this is what a decent one bedroom looks like, the studios I've seen are just the size of the last room.

    Spoiler for There's 8 picture here. If your character is female, ignore the mess:


    Other than that, I try to get to things in general, but for specifics or what not or if I miss something someone wants pointers on, I'm available by PM.

    The front page has been updated again. I'm trying to make the reference documents section easier to read.

    Speaking of, if anyone has a topic that they think should be covered, let me know and I'll try to fish up relevant articles to put up there. A lot of the articles up there right now are things that I've used in recent stories, but obviously there are useful topics besides grammar and style or medical. The larger the variety, the better (probably).

    All right, I've updated again, now that the forums are not incredibly hard on the eyes.

    Just for clarification in case I didn't explain it very well the first time, the difference between firsthand knowledge and secondhand knowledge is that firsthand knowledge is practical and applied while secondhand knowledge is theoretical. If you read a lot about birds or studied economics, that would be secondhand knowledge. If you were an ornithologist who physically worked with birds or did actuary work, that would be first-hand knowledge.

    And please feel free to actually contact some people and request help! That's what this thread is for, after all.
