There are a lot of people that find incest disgusting, and it's important that stories are tagged correctly and put in the right category.

We have over a thousand authors who are happy to tag their stories correctly, and submit them to the right category.

The way you talked about one of our volunteer editors was despicable. If you can't remain civil, feel free to delete all your stories and move on.

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

That isn't very nice! I give my time and effort into this site just as much, if not more so, because I sit and verify stories and moderate the chat rooms. Story Verifiers make sure that your story gets posted onto the site and it isn't polite to down them because you are irritated your story was moved into a different section. What if I don't like incest and I get into it because it is in the wrong section. It improves the site and makes it better as a whole; it makes it more enjoyable to others.

"The curse is come upon me," cried

i think, DB, what everyone here is tip-toeing around in an effort to be nice can be summed up in a pithy little statement: Stop being an ass.

yes, we all get a little bent out of shape at times at mods for this or that, i've been there too - that said, these are people who have volenteered their time, don't get a lot of thanks, do a butt-load of work, and to come in and abuse them because you're not happy with being treated like everyone else is just insulting. i'm sure the mods are insulted by it, and i know i am. if you don't want to play by the rules, then you should go somewhere else where the rules are more to your liking.

Nic didn't just arbitarily decide to make things difficult for you - there are reasons for submission rules, such as keeping the site open. i would prefer not to jeopardize a site that i have come to care very much about simply so you can get your own way after throwing your little snit - really, what does it matter what catagory your stories fall under? they've been published, they will be read. isn't that the whole point? is you don't want them catagoriezed under incest, don't fucking right stories that have incest in them. capice?

and please, feel free to come back at me with as much venom and spite as you can muster. if it will save my beloved mods from having to deal with your attitude, i'll welcome it.



Live, love, laugh.

I wish there was a like button to like comments and forum posts. That would be outstanding. ^^

I've suggested that before as well. But I've been told the forums will not be worked on.

Perhaps this is silly, but then again maybe not.

It is nice to have a qualifier under our profiles that tells everyone else if you are single, married, or a slut; yet why not a qualifier that depicts your sexual orientation?

I am not sure what the politically correct way of wording the choices is these days.

Straight
Bisexual
Gay

Or maybe even Pansexual/Omnisexual... ?

What about something like "Not Interested", "Open-Minded", "Curious"?

Not interested being; one is not interested in cybering, just conversations or here for other reasons than to meet people.

Open-Minded/Curious as being you are not bi/gay/lesbian, but are curious about it all and might be interested in playing.

Living life and enjoying life are two different things... just need to figure out how to do both at the same time to live it right!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_orientation - usually just the 3 types: heterosexual, bisexual and homosexual.

I doubt many asexuals would actually be visiting a sex site, by definition.

This is a great site, and most "improvements" will be tweaks - and that's the way it should be. So, here are my two "tweak" suggestions:
1. The gender of the author could be displayed by the avatar in the new stories list (not all avatars give a clue about gender and I dare say I am not alone in preferring a certain gender of author)
2. Maybe the profile section could have a "Sexual activities enjoyed" section - this would give readers a greater insight into the mindset of the author. This could be implemented as a tickbox selection - I could provide a candidate list if required laughing6

In the meantime - its a brilliant site notworthy

I have just added the sexual orientation option to your personal details settings page. This will appear on your profile and the member search page.

I would like to see max number of members allowed in a chat room at the same time be reduced to 20. all members over that would be moved to room #2 like now. it would be easier to track the chat i'm involved in as well as result in two more equally populated rooms. my two cents. thanks,

You can find humorous stories -- or at least stories the author thinks are humorous -- by entering "humor" under Stories in the Search pulldown in the top bar.

Here are some of my favorites to help you get started:

Cupid's Arrow by NobeUddy
HOW HUMANS DO IT: A Fish-Eye View of Sex by RumpleForeskin
The Paper Bag Girl by Fugly

And finally, one that may fit in the "at least the author thinks it's humorous" category...

The Secret Life of Bellingham Sam by, well, me. Embarassed

Hehe. Good list, you Rascal, and I agree with the inclusion of your own story. It's funny and brilliant, in my humble opinion.

Here's another one I think is humourous.

Nothing critical or urgent, but just a general thought....

It would be awesome if we could turn off the status updates showing up in our profile feeds from the forum games section. For some people who post in there every 30 seconds for hours on end, it can quickly clog all their friend's status feeds.

As much as I like to stay "in the know" about who would fuck whom, and all the things they would say and do to the avatar above them... I think that those posts tend to be fairly repetitive and probably don't need to be included in status updates.

My 2 cents

That would be me DD.. I've often worried that I annoyed my friends with that. My apologies! Sincerely.
