Seems like that could have been handled privately. Bundle of joy you are, LOL.

Which do you think is easier, to donate time and effort to make the site as good as it can be? Or take personal shots publicly at those that do?

And how would you differentiate between a view and a read? By duration?

I think most people do actually mean to delete their account (after prompted, are you sure). If it was me, and I wanted to remove myself from the site, I would want to make sure it was done there and then, and not have to wait for a delay.



Btw, I was only kidding about the view vs. reads thing...icon_smile

I'm not sure I agree with you about the account deletion thingy though, considering the number of people who seem to return, often within a day or two...

I do however agree with LadyX...
Of course, I always agree with Xuani...

Think of it as compared to facebook where you are never really sure that your account is completely deleted. Also, for the people who need to quit because their spouse found out, a delay of a day or two could be extremely troublesome. ("Honey, you swore you deleted your account, but I checked and it's still there.") Yes, people do delete their accounts and come back. But I would guess that far more delete their accounts and never come back.

Incest stories go in the incest category. That is Lush Stories site policy; put on your big boy pants and deal with it.

Oh, and the Moderator in question is anything but an idiot. People who don't categorise their stories properly, however...

Thank you, Gypsy.

Let's see, the story in question had sex between a mother and son, aunt and nephew, aunt and niece...and that's as far as I got. Does anyone besides the writer who posted it in the wrong category to begin with think it doesn't belong in Incest?

Oh, and Mr. Barclay? It's common for different parts of a story to be posted in different categories, depending on the content of each section. But I'd be happy to move Chapter 1 to Incest as well, so the two parts are posted in the same category. The implication is certainly present, though it's not stated outright.

I haven't read the whole thread so forgive me if I repeat.... on my profile page when i'm notified that someone posted in a forum thread. When I click on it, can it go directly to the last page or post instead of page one of the thread?

hey, as far as i'm concerned, if someone throws a snit here and decides to delete their account and then, after the fact, changes their mind, that's their issue - maybe they'll think twice about doing it again - how many times have i gotten notes saying 'i'm done, bye' only to see people come back a few days later? yep, lost count. i think gav's got better things to do then find ways to second guess anyone who wants to go - i mean this is an adult site - we need to be responsible for our choices here. if i delete my account, then it's my bad luck - don't expect to see me coming back to whine over lost stories, friends lists, artwork, etc.

But on topic. Would it be possible to have a better search function for stories?
Be able to search on title or tags or just everything and then maybe be able to order them on views, rating or something more. I think it would be pretty helpful with the amount of new stories added every day.

I've been thinking that I would like to be able to click on a member's name (in the sender box) when they sent requests and be taken straight to their profile page where I can choose to accept their invite or not (check a box that says 'accept' or 'delete' and which one you choose takes you back to inbox after.
I like to take a stroll through a member's profile and found myself having to do four things just to accept or not (opening up mail, checking out profile, going back to messages to accept/delete, back to messages and doing it all over again).

If that is possible Gav, that would be great & save a lot time to do other stuff!

Image gallery: public and private,
In your private gallery: do you have the option to choose which friends get to view your personal photos? If not, could you make it a function?
Say for example when I add a friend I would like to get to know them a bit better/feel comfortable before I let them see my personal pics.

It seems to me that you're getting a certain amount of requests for things that are already in place...

I think what Lush really needs is an instructional video on the use of the site...complete with plenty of hot looking naked women bending over the computer screen...and maybe that sexy voice over girl doing the narration...
I think every guy here would be an expert on the site in no time...

I know I would...icon_smile

Oh, just another thought,

Could Gav, please add a Comment link on our profile pages in the story section.

So you have: Added : Oct 11, 2010 | Category : Lesbian | Votes : 50 | Avg Score 4.8 | Views 9,904 | Comments 10
and when someone comments on your story just can just go straight to that link and read the comments (story isn't attached).

That's not very polite Mr Barclay! She was 100% correct, it should have been put in the right category at the beginning.

However, it's a design fail on our side.

If a moderator edits or moves a verified story to a different category, it shouldn't then be seen as unverified. I've asked Gav to see what's possible to stop this happening.

Lovely to see you DB, you're a laugh a minute as always icon_smile

Actually, I did it that way on purpose and asked the other story verifiers to follow suit, so the authors of the stories being moved would receive notice of the pending category change. The only stories that retained an "unverified" status for more than a minute or two were those few with which we found problems that warranted further review. All the rest were re-verified straightaway in the new category.

We *could* have just moved them without telling anyone, but I know if my story were being moved, I'd appreciate knowing why and to which category. We've moved several stories and have had, as far as I know, just the one complaint. Most of the writers here want people who are interested in the subject they write about to be able to find their work.

@iszofia, Those treats are what keeps me coming back :D

Quote:

Similar to DirtyMartini's comment, I would love to see the links on my news feed concerning friends' forum posts connect to the post, or at least the page of the post, rather than the first page of the thread they post on. It would just make it a little easier to check out posts that they make, specifically when there is an active debate in the think tank.


This will be in the next release.

How about in the short term, when you get a friends request, you click on their name but open their profile page in a new tab (CTRL click or right click, open in new tab). That way you can browse their page, when your done just close it down and your right back at your open message page where you can accept or decline?

Hey Gav...I would certainly be willing to volunteer to do the video, assuming there are sufficient female volunteers...I am certainly open to that...anything to help the cause...icon_smile

Regarding the account deletion thingy...would there be any way to store the account on the server for a period of time? I think most people who delete there accounts after someone looks at them wrong in a chat room, or had too much tequila, or whatever are not going to go through the trouble of backing up their profile...

Then when they sober up the next day, or take their meds or whatever, it will be available again...

I mean, I personally don't care if someone wants to delete their account every day and re-join...whatever floats your boat, so to speak...but, when there are stories involved I think it becomes more of an issue that should be addressed. I have people on my friends list who have deleted their accounts and returned more than once...

Nicola has made it clear in another forum post, that she does not want the same stories re-submitted when someone gets back to reality and returns to the site. I can fully understand this...
The thing is, Lush has lost some very good stories because people have had a rough day or whatever and deleted their accounts...

If you look under "Competitions" on the front page, you will see there is no first place winner listed in the first Lush story competition...
I can think of plenty more examples on the site...

I personally can think of no good reason why any sane, sober individual would need to delete their whole account when Lush offers so many account options, such as deleting pictures, changing birth dates, deleting individual stories...even changing screen name on request...

I just think it's an issue that really needs to be addressed more...

No need to apologize.

It affects the whole site when somebody drops in and only contributes negatively to it. It's not necessary to insult anybody, yet you clearly enjoy doing so, both in comments on stories and to members, and now also to moderators.

Maybe it's the rest of us that should apologize. I can't imagine the hurt you must have experienced by having your story moved by evil-doing lush volunteers. How dare they, with their valid reasons and all? So, I'm sorry, DBarclay. How dare I suggest you not act like a baby and complain publicly instead of just sending a PM, which would take the same amount of time, and would spare us your attitude.

What is your point, ever, other than to complain and disparage?
