Is it possible to have an option to reply to our black boxes in the online message folder?
I don't always reply right away and I sometimes don't have the patience to load up their page or my friends list while I'm using my tablet so I can reply. (It's super slow)
Thanks!

Not sure if this has been asked before, but here goes:

Is there a way to add or include the red menu bar at the bottom of the page?
Or possibly a Top link that can return the reader to the top of the page?


Typically, when I finish reading a story, scoring it and leaving a comment, I'm left with scrolling back to the top of the page to get back to the Home page or where ever I want to go. Using my computer (laptop or desktop), it is easy. Just hit CTRL-HOME and poof - I'm there. But, when using my iPad or iPhone, i have to scroll back up. If I use the back arrows, as many of you probably know, it takes you through numerous pages to get back.

Just a suggestion. Nothing in the grand scheme of things. Thanks for consideration.

To instantly scroll to the top of a page in Safari on an iPad or iPhone, just tap the status bar at the top. :)

I have two suggestions:
1) Update the graphics. I personally find the graphics a little too...2006. I'm not suggesting the interface should be changed, just the appearance. The red on white theme works well, however looks a bit dated.

2) Instead of a timeline review, I think a notifications tab on the top bar would be more convenient. I'm pinching the idea from Facebook simply because it's functional and works well.

I agree with number one.

Black and white or black and silver would be interesting.

I also vote updated avatars. I know there's a lot but some are a bit dated..

For men and women...


I quite like your avatar, Arcane.

You see, that's why I love this site. Even when the most obvious eludes me (us), someone is there to remind us. Thanks for the DiNozzo smack, Liz. I truly needed and deserved it.

I agree with this. There's nothing more frustrating than typing along only to look up and see that you've run out of characters. For the truly long-winded, like me, this would be great.

I know this is going to draw some scrutiny, but would it be possible for scores to be shown along with comments. This might discourage those who have nothing better to do than to low-ball you with a 1 vote if they knew that everyone could see who did it. It's easy enough to find out by looking at your timeline and doing the math, but if they were out there for everyone to see it might make some of them think twice.

Can there be an option to choose an avatar directly from our image galleries in addition to uploading a picture every time we change it?

Maybe we can just hover an image and select 'Choose as avatar'. It would be really convenient, especially for those like myself that recycle avatars.

Two wishes that tie together: I would be great if the message list could show more messages on a single page than twenty (perhaps as an optional setting?) and if the selection box could be made bigger. Right now, when I'm tidying up my messages, I keep missing the tiny boxes, opening the message instead. Alternatively, it would be a great help if clicking outside the checkbox in this column didn't open the message.

A minor tweak to the story search option would be great. If you type in two words it displays stories with either word rather than stories containing both words. So tough cookies if you are in the mood for something specific. Unless I am doing something wrong which could easily be the case.

I really love Dani's idea, so please, can we?

Also, I was thinking since we now have the Statistics on our profile, can we add how many famous stories, RR's and EP's we have there also. I think it would be a great add to it. I mean, we have days in chat, what use is that? So, I think it would be cool to add famous stories, RR's and EP's, please. :)

An overhaul of the search feature has been on the cards for a long time. It's unfortunately still on the to-do list.

I would like to see many more features too. In particular:

- Search for Word 1 AND Word 2 AND Word 3 (perhaps up to 4-5 keywords).

- Add exclusion words (NOT containing "Scat" tongue6)

Nicola,

I have a suggestion that will benefit everyone. I notice I get a flood of comments on my stories when first introduced and then it trickles off to a person here and there. I would love to see a way to plug your work and give it front page attention. How about a system where you can purchase a plug or buy advertising space? I do notice that Ashleigh has her west Coast Games promoted.

Anyway, just a thought.

Chuck

I've just published chapter seven of Undercovers Detective. I would love your feedback on this story. I'm planning on ten chapters at least. If you haven't read one yet, I've included links. I hope you like them.

Where do you mean?

All stories get equal amount of time on the front page. There are no paid placements. We promote authors' Amazon ebooks on the RHS of the front page, is that what you mean? dontknow

A few people have Ash's story promoted in their forum sigs.

Paid placement of stories could work at category level perhaps, like Google do with their 3 x sponsor listings. I don't particularly like the idea though, as it would cause a disparity.

Thank you for the suggestions folks, please keep them coming.

Thanks for explaining. I guess if you build a large following your stories will of course get more readers. And I agree that self promotion that is paid would be unfair. Scratch that idea.

i choose, my choice, and it has nothing to do with my position on lush, to promote Ashleigh's stories simply because, imo, she's one of our premiere writers, and i think that anyone who is interested in being a truly great writer would do well to read her work. i know that she has pushed me to improve immeasurably from when i first joined, and i like to pay her back for the support she's given me from the moment i first joined the site. :)

I wasn't slamming Ashleigh. She is the best writer on this site and has helped me tremendously. I have read all her work. I am a novice writer. Only ask questions to find out things. I thought there were promotions available for your stories. I wasn't aware they were for e-books alone. I was wrong. In any case I will be more careful about what question i ask in the future. Sorry.

Hey there,

I might have misunderstood this, but I think it would be better to use simple +/-/" " as extra search options the way google does instead of actually having to type out and and not.

1) I have to agree. The graphics could be updated. I wouldn't change the color scheme, because it has become lush stories, but especially the forum looks very out of date and doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the site. I also wonder if there is a lush logo. I don't think you need something fancy just something like a white LS on red ground as a part of the lush brand. It could be used in many ways. For example as an avatar for the birthday posts that non avatar looks a bit weird or in promotional things like the twitter or Facebook site or in articles that mention lush.
Amendment: I just saw there actually is a lush logo used for the android app. So you could just pull that one and use it for those things.

2) I kind of like the timeline, but that is just me.

Amendment:
I just found out there actually is a lush android app. Amazing! However it took my over 7 months to accidentally stumble over that information. You should think about making that information easier to find. Like including it into the welcome email.

Nicola,
I would love to see a new category added for Collaborations. After the latest collaboration by Milik and Poppet, I think this category promotes shared experiences between members.

My last idea was a bomb but I think this one is better.

Hey Chuck,

I tried to find the thread, but couldnt find it off hand(and im on the way out to go to work) but the current system that gives credit to both authors is actually a solution that most are fairly happy with. If I remember correctly(why I looked for the thread) to set it up as a collabs, would require a lot more work for the code monkey.

Some of the collabs are great. Of the 3 recipients of the Outstanding series award, 2 are collabs! (Im very pleased to have been part of the Settle for Nothing Series)

I have also written a collaboration with Lexi (sweetesSins). I wasn't aware both authors got credit. In our collaboration I didn't. Plus, if the collaboration was allowed on both authors pages, it would give better exposer to the story.

Thanks for saying that. (Checks in the mail ;))

I think we did actually talk about this once and I believe that Dirty_D is right about the result. I think if collaborations were more common, Nicola might find the effort worth while.

I'lll tell you what though, I have written with Dirty_D, Principessa, Sweatascandy, Poppet, Jayne33 and even Summerjones. I have found each time that I had to up my game and that each of the stories we created were very special in their own ways. This is something I strongly encourage all writers to try.

Working with another can be difficult at times and it isn't easy giving up creative control, but the ability to learn from others is just invaluable. Everyone one of my co writers taught me something the craft.
