When you click the 'submit an entry' button on an entry, the following comes up-

"Please read the Review Forums FAQ (linking to <./>DontPanic-ReviewForums</.&gtsmiley - winkeye and <./>Writing Guidelines</.> before using this form, so you can pick the correct Review Forum:
If your Guide Entry meets our guidelines and is finished, choose Peer Review
If your Guide Entry meets our guidelines but is not yet finished, choose Writing Workshop
If your Guide Entry is currently just an idea, choose Collaborative Writing Workshop
If your Guide Entry doesn't meet our guidelines, choose Alternative Writing Workshop
Don't choose Flea Market, unless you want your Guide Entry to be ignored!"

Fine. But something occurs to me - wouldn't it help if the words Peer Review, Writing Workshop, etc all linked to their respective workshops? Seems to me that this would be a good way to get newbies to understand the process better. If the one sentence isn't enough for them, they can click on the link and read several paragraphs about PR or the WW or whatever. They also have the opportunity to see the sort of entries by looking at the bottom of the review forum pages.

Newbies aren't stupid and a lot of them are very cautious and want to know as much about the site as possible before submitting to PR or the AWW etc and I think we should make it as easy as possible for those people.
