I’m just wondering how many people who write here on Lush have a goal of writing in all the categories. I am sure a lot of people would like too, and some who couldn't care less.

I know some who want to, and some who just write in what they know.

I think with all the badges we have, we should have one for this. You know, if you've written in all the categories. I mean, this is after all a writing site. We should have a badge to show if someone has done something like this.

We have a lot of badges for a lot of different things; I think this should be another one. Does anyone else agree?

I personally would love if someone went to my profile and saw a badge showing I have done them all.

Yes I totally agree, It is a pretty big achievement completing every category in the Lush stories list. There should be a badge to commemorate these talented authors.

I disagree. There are some excellent writers who would never write an incest story despite the popularity of that category here because it is abhorrent to them. There are other subjects where we lack knowledge or interest. For example, I am not interested in the supernatural and don't know enough about cross-dressing to write about it. My real objection is that I think that simply covering all of the categories is not an achievement. It has nothing to do with the quality of the writing like an Editor's Pick. I think that we should award excellence and not encourage writing that simply fills a quota but may have no other redeeming quality.

Wow; when first read the ideal of the badge sounded great..Now after reading,Principessa's thoughts on the subject , I have a very strong feeling that she is correct in not awarding such a medal.
Now lets take this a step further, I'm not a writer nor an author, So disregard my comment..just M.O.

I agree with Principessa's view but I suppose each catergory could have it's own badge then if you do all subjects you get a badge that covers all. But it sounds like a lot of work to set up and Gav's only got 2 hands to computerate with or at least I hope he has. free-sexy-smileys-947 Just thinking what he might do with one of them evil4

Seeing as there are roughly 30 categories, maybe a badge for 15 or over categories. Could be a challenge for some authors to explore topics they've never tried while still being able to avoid categories that make them feel dirty (not in a good way).

That's a good idea.

I do like the idea for a badge on each but it is a lot of work. So having one for after 15, or even after 10 would be cool. You get a badge after every 10. That would be wicked!

if this gets a badge I should get a badge for coming up with the idea of writing a story in each category.


As far as I know I am the first to come up with that goal. although I could be wrong.

latest comp story: Lilith versus Ursula

most likely to get me my famous story badge back
His & Hers secrets Ch1

Under construction (back in business)
Awaiting verification: Aphrodite's Gift ch1 (Fantasy/Sci-fi)
On deck: His & Hers Secret CHs 2 & 3 (Trans)

my latest
My Dark Lover ch1 (supernatural)

Not likely, I had this idea before meeting you. I also know Peter_Pan wants to do this too. I have spoken to others who want to also. It seems to be a popular goal for a good handful of people. That's why I made the forum. :3

Doing it WELL would be an amazing achievement, especially if you tackle subjects that that exist outside of your comfort zone.

The idea of writing a story in each genre has been around since longer than i've been here. I could be wrong but I think Imalovernotawriter tried to do this - not sure if he actually succeeded. There's nothing to stop people from writing Incest stories that aren't like your average Incest story - or twist the genre somehow to appeal to a wider audience.

Fugly wrote an Editor's pick which covered every genre Lush Bag of Allsorts

Okay, if someone writes stories good enough for an EP in every category, I agree they should get a special badge.

Edit: This was meant to be funny. I did not really mean this to be a serious suggestion.

I would like to sell my badges to peeps who would give me some of their Lushpoints, so I could then purchase my Lush muscle T shirt, Lush red baseball jacket & spiffy Lush sunglasses.

If ya can't beat 'em... pay someone to do it for you.

I think there should be a Badge badge...based on someone's need for a badge.

It could be called the Yo Dawg badge, be all like "yo dawg, we heard you wanted a badge, so we gave you a badge, saying badge, so you can look at your badge while you look for another badge."

I think I quite like the idea of a badge for writing in a range of categories. There are some areas I would feel very uncomfortable about writing in (e.g. cross-dressing and transsexual) but then again, I always said that about BDSM, and by taking a light-hearted look at the subject, it wasn't so bad in the end.

Some stories could of course fit into more than one category - e.g. a "MILF" story could also be "lesbian". I've classified all my pee stories as "fetish", but they could just as well be "taboo" too.

I think I've got stories in 8 categories so far.

And this is why I think things would be confusing. Someone could write one story that encompasses all categories. Does that particular story get credit for more than one category? I just think overall, it's rather unnecessary...and could turn very messy.

At first read it sounded like a wonderful idea. But as many have said there are pros and cons. I do like the idea of a badge for say posting each lets say 10 stories... so, the author badge with 10, 20, 30, etc superimposed over it. Possibly for stories with ratings of 4 and above.... Just a thought, Then the badge would be for quality rather than quantity. Just my 2 cents worth with my lonely 1 story and 1 borrowed poem!
