Honestly, especially on forums, they're awkward. Besides, letting people jump right into the community offers pretty good insight as to who they are.
But anyways, I'm not here to debate about that. I'm here cause the articles here are interesting, and as a hobbyist writer, I'd like to try my hand at them. I haven't had much critique on other stuff I've done before, but thankfully(and somewhat frighteningly), that won't seem to be a problem with you guys. I've got a few ideas in my head already, but I'm sadly both a procrastinator and an amnesiac, so when I'll actually get to posting articles is anyone's guess.
However, once I get something solid, I'm looking forward to your harshest criticisms.
