Topic How do I do a custom forum rank?
Posted 24 May 2015 02:01



Perhaps an 'Edit Forum Rank' under profile Settings/Privacy? ... never understood why thats an admin request .. waste of your time I would think :).

It's tied in to the forum software we are running currently, which means only myself and Gav can add ranks, and make changes. It's a cumbersome process.

Custom ranks are given as a perk to "Gold Members" only as a result, hence why we don't have it as an easy setting for everyone to be able to change.

We should make this clearer, and / or an easier way for them to be created.

Topic Flash Erotica Story
Posted 21 May 2015 06:42

I suspect the word "between" has been taken literally, and it is coded in that stories can be 101 words to 999 words. I'll need to check with Gav the next time he's on site.

A pop up ad makes it almost impossible to click the full site link when using Samsung devices. Its extremely frustrating. Could that pop up be relocated?

If you click on the 3 horizontal white lines in the top left, you should see a desktop link there. Let me know if you have any problems. A few people had this issue, which is why we added the second link.

Topic Flash Erotica Story
Posted 18 May 2015 23:27

lol @ SJ.

I am trying to submit a flash erotica story. There are 999 words. I keep getting an error that the story must be exactly 1000 words.

Is there a problem with this today. Or is this a new change.

Please advise,

Flash erotica stories do not have to be exactly 1000 words.

"Flash erotica stories vary in length from anywhere between one hundred to one thousand words."

Topic Youtube videos no longer importing?

We are aware of the issue, and are working on a solution.

"As we upgrade the YouTube Data API to bring more features, we’ll begin shutting down the old version on April 20, 2015.

If the video appears unexpectedly in a web browser, it means that website is using an outdated method to access YouTube videos."

Videos already imported, seem to be unaffected at this stage. It's the import process which they have changed from the looks of things.

Topic is there a site with intense non-consent stories?
Posted 14 May 2015 23:42

Non-consent = Rape, so you're probably not going to get many answers here.

It's easy to find stories of any nature through google, using, "*Desired keywords here* sex stories" as the search phrase.

I changed it for you.

Edits put stories back in the queue, but moderators don't have to read the entire piece again, because all changes are highlighted for them.

I'm surprised it made it passed our hawkeye verifiers. It's an easy mistake to make.

Topic chaturbate token generator
Posted 13 May 2015 05:52

Well we all have heard of the cam site chaturbate.com right? so recently i heard there is hack to generate tokens fr free to enjoy the website. I tried it but it didn't work. so i was wondering has anyone used it who could guide me/

Shame on you

Robbing sites and cam models of their income, isn't a very nice thing to do.

I've experienced it a lot over the years here. People scraping our site for stories, creating new sites / apps / ebooks etc with the stolen content.

It's theft, plain and simple, however you dress it up.

A lot of people think it's harmless. It isn't. These thieves are taking away from someone's livelihood. They are polyps.

If you hadn't guessed, it's a subject I'm very passionate about.

Topic Twitter Writing Challenge: 140 characters of sexyness
Posted 13 May 2015 03:54

139 characters according to the counter you posted:

I laid blindfolded and bound as he moved against and over me. Quivering, gasping, I came around him, milking his cock as he came inside me.

Yes, the challenge is EXACTLY 140 characters, as per my first post.

Some of these above are 18 characters over, one, 11 characters under.

I am no longer going to reply to people asking why their submission hasn't been twottled. exactly 140 characters .

b) It did nothing for me.

I hope that helps clear up any future misunderstandings. icon_smile

A kind soul sent me this link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Nikon-D5300-Digital-18-55mm-Compact/dp/B00I3M6BVY/

I'm leaning towards a Nikon, although you seem to get a lot of camera for your money with Canons too.

It looks like my budget restricts me to entry level cameras: http://www.cnet.com/uk/topics/cameras/best-digital-cameras/dslr-for-beginners/

It might be better buying a second hand mid-range one instead, although you don't get any guarantees it isn't faulty.

I just encountered this here, having taken lots of photos today, with my iPhone up vertically (you'd expect those images to upload vertically wouldn't you?).

What I ended up doing, was opening the images in MS Paint, then saving them as a PNG. They uploaded the right way after that.

Thank you for the feedback. Some really good advice there SS and OMKN.

In anything other than brilliant sunshine, it's hard to take decent photos on a device meant for making telephone calls (funny that!).

Here were a few attempts today (in 6000 year old woodland):

Gav is going to look into this. The uploader program should be a little more helpful, based on the image properties.

I've noticed the same problem on other sites lately. It is very frustrating, particularly when the image looks fine on your PC / Mac. angry9

Topic What is the best Mid Range DSLR Camera for your money?
Posted 09 May 2015 05:01

After taking in a few photography exhibitions lately, and seeing the amazing results photographers using DSLR cameras come up with, I'm interested in picking up a DSLR. Most of the photos in those exhibitions, were taken using either a Canon EOS of some variety, or Nikons.

I'm starting to want something more than a point and shoot (although you can get some reasonable results using an iPhone 5 or above these days - see below).

Which models do you recommend and why?

I am interested in something under £600 (< US$900), which comes with a good lens. Features aren't all that important, the body and lens is.

This looks a really good camera for the money - cheaper on eBay.co.uk, but I'd rather get one from a store so I can take it back if there are any issues: http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/cameras/digital-cameras/dslr-cameras/canon-eos-700d-dslr-camera-with-18-55-mm-telephoto-zoom-lens-extra-battery-lens-cloth-21324790-pdt.html#cat-0

Recommendations?

Topic It's, MAY DAY!
Posted 06 May 2015 05:52

For the uneducated (like me): May Day

The earliest May Day celebrations appeared in pre-Christian times, with the Floralia, festival of Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers, held April 27 during the Roman Republic era, and with the Walpurgis Night celebrations of the Germanic countries. It is also associated with the Gaelic Beltane, most commonly held on April 30. The day was a traditional summer holiday in many pre-Christian European pagan cultures. While February 1 was the first day of Spring, May 1 was the first day of summer; hence, the summer solstice on June 25 (now June 21) was Midsummer.

As Europe became Christianised, the pagan holidays lost their religious character and May Day changed into a popular secular celebration. A significant celebration of May Day occurs in Germany where it is one of several days on which St. Walburga, credited with bringing Christianity to Germany, is celebrated. The secular versions of May Day, observed in Europe and America, may be best known for their traditions of dancing around the maypole and crowning the Queen of May. Fading in popularity since the late 20th century is the giving of "May baskets," small baskets of sweets or flowers, usually left anonymously on neighbors' doorsteps.

Since the 18th Century, many Roman Catholics have observed May — and May Day — with various May devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary In works of art, school skits, and so forth, Mary's head will often be adorned with flowers in a May crowning. May 1 is also one of two feast days of the Catholic patron saint of workers St Joseph the Worker, a carpenter, husband to Mother Mary, and surrogate father of Jesus. Replacing another feast to St. Joseph, this date was chosen by the Pope Pius XII in 1955 to create as a counterpoint to the Communist International Workers Day celebrations on May Day.

Beginning in the late 20th century, many neopagans began reconstructing traditions and celebrating May Day as a pagan religious festival.

It was a shame, the sun went in about 5 minutes before I spotted the field. This area of East Anglia has a lot of "field mustard" (rapeseed), used to produce canola oil. It's not so great for bees.

This might help: http://graphicssoft.about.com/od/digitalphotography/f/sideways-pictures.htm Something about the software you're using, not recognising the orientation tags used on iPhones and the like (including certain Microsoft products).

I've asked Gav if he's changed anything our side. The software here simply uploads what you put in. It may look vertical in your viewer, but that's not how computers read the information given!

Topic Changes to Premium Memberships in regards to Private Messaging / IM Chat
Posted 05 May 2015 05:03

Hi,

Our Premium Membership Model was introduced earlier this year. It was implemented to help cover the increasing costs of our dedicated servers, backups and data storage facilities.

We deemed the fairest system to be based on restricting access to site features which use up the most resources ($), in terms of processing power and / or storage. Messaging / chat / image uploading, are high on this list.

We have been looking at ways to improve the structure of the model over the last few months, and have decided to make a change to the set up in relation to the messaging restrictions .

As it stands, new members have a 3 month trial, after which time, they will need to switch to a paying membership (less than $1 per month) if they wish to continue using all the site features . This includes the private messaging and IM chat.

This is also the case for all members registered prior to 1 Jan 2015, who were given a 6 month grace period (which ends 30 June 2015).

The way it is set up now, once a member's trial membership ends, they can no longer message anyone. Nor can a paying member, contact them.

I believe a fairer system is to have it so that if at either end of the message is a Premium Member (Bronze, Silver or Gold), then the messaging restriction is lifted.

That means a paying member, can effectively contact anyone, regardless of their membership status.

This will be coded and operational, within the next week or so.

Thank you for all your feedback on this. It may result in fewer signups, but I'd rather our community continue to be happy and supportive of all our site's efforts.

Regards,

Nicola
