Topic: Send to Kindle?
Posted: 17 Nov 2017 12:29

We use a widget provided by Amazon to delivery the story content to your device. There should be no reason this doesn't work for you.

I've read the specs again for this and based upon their advice, I've added some more tags to help the reader pick out the relevant meta data of the story.

Let me know if things improve for you.

Topic: Which improvements or features would you like to see added?
Posted: 04 Oct 2017 12:57

and maybe a Gav-anator Award for those special individuals who keep the site running smoothly on the technical side...I know we have Bug Slayer but I'd guess there are some unsung heroes/heroines that deserve some recognition

Some would question smoothly <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/evil6.gif" alt="evil4">

We do have a number of badges to recognize the achievements from our members and moderators in their efforts on running and improving the site.


Moderator Of The Month


Let me mull over your other suggestions.

Topic: The Groups discussion thread
Posted: 19 Sep 2017 01:49

On the Groups landing page all descriptions are shortened. All have the last word replaced with "...more", where "more" is a link. It would make more sense if only long descriptions would be shortened, but OK, at least the ellipsis makes it clear that something is left off.
On the My Groups page though the last word of the description is also left off, but there's no "...more" added, which is obviously a bug.

BTW, I believe I saw one of the new banners on the homepage about Groups, but I get the feeling that this part of the site is not/hardly maintained anymore. There's no follow up on bug reports, no fix or response, and the search option has been saying "coming soon" since Groups went live almost two years ago.

You have a keen eye, I'll give you that =d&gt;

The more link should now be reinstated on the My Groups page.

Topic: new front page banner
Posted: 18 Sep 2017 00:57

I think the new scrolling banner on the front page is really well designed, and a nice bit of advertising.

However, we need to have the option to turn it off! My kids sometimes bounce into the room with no warning, and while I realize there are sexy pix all over the front page, with a no-ads gold membership they are all thumbnails. The new banner pix are pretty big and instantly recognizable. I like them, you shouldn't get rid of them, but there should be a way to turn it off or opt out. After all, we are already members, you don't need to seel us on the site.

Good point. I've added an option to hide (just above the slider) as well as an associated setting in your settings page.

Topic: Chat Room Wish List
Posted: 18 Jul 2017 02:29

I see this is an ancient thread that just got resurrected, so I'm going to make use of it being here.

Some of the rooms tend to fill up and stay full, and if you want in you have to keep trying. No problem; I see the purpose and point of having limited numbers of people in a room. But...

Sometimes I'll see someone who's in two or three rooms. Again, not a problem except if the same person is in two rooms that are already full and a third that's just kind of semi-full. What about a feature that notifies such people that they must log out of the rooms that are at 24 or more, or out of the other room. If they do not, they will be ejected from full rooms in the order in which they entered them, starting in 60 seconds (or some other arbitrary time) until the conflict no longer exists.

I don't necessarily have a problem with people being in more than one room, but when they contribute to filling a room to capacity, they should either be engaging in that room or get out and let others in.

Does that make sense? Am I just being a cranky old youkidsgetouttamychatroom! guy?

Let me mull this over for a bit. If someone isn't contributing to a popular room, then their seat shouldn't be guaranteed.

Topic: Chat Room Wish List

clicks doc marten boots and says, I wish I wish upon a star to have my own chatroom

And no I don't mean having to create my own chatroom.

laughs--just having fun posting and reading threads before I even knew of lush.

There aint enough pixels in the world to host that room!

Topic: Audio stories on an iphone
Posted: 07 Jul 2017 14:12

iOS has always been a tricky beast to stream files to. i have spent countless hours with my iPad connected to my proxy and sniffing the requests its making to diagnose the issue.

i have uploaded a new patch today, are things better in iPhone land?

btw can you also watch the movies we host here too?

Topic: Want Lush To Keep Running? Wish Gav A Happy Birthday!
Posted: 14 Jun 2017 19:47

Thanks everyone for your birthday wishes.

Another year goes by, another notch on the belt. The white exterior maybe worn and fading, but the man inside is still a kid at heart.

Cheers <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/pintdrunk.gif" alt="Pint Drunk">

Topic: hiding stories
Posted: 26 May 2017 00:48

Does choosing the hide story option for one of your own stories only hide it from the list of your stories, or can it also disable the link?

I'd have assumed and expected the latter, but I was experimenting with hiding a few of mine that I'm not as happy with.

I hid them, logged off, cleared the cache, shut down my browser, and then went back to lush.

When I went to my profile (logged out, so not as "me"), the stories were not visible from my profile, as I'd expect them not to be. However, they were still accessible from pre-existing links / bookmarks.

Do I have to wait longer for them to be truly hidden? Or is there not a way of truly hiding them short of deleting them?



If you hide a story then its effectively removed from the site. All links to the story are gone and if you did bookmark it, this should still return a 404 page. However Story Mods will still get to view hidden stories.

Hope this helps.

Topic: Daily message limit
Posted: 25 May 2017 11:39

Is this a new thing for non paying Lushies? I just got stopped
From sending a DM as "reached my daily limit". Boo.

This is nothing new. We have imposed a daily limit of 10 messages a day for non paying members.
Hope this helps, gav
