Posted 19 Apr 2018 06:57

Just to let you know, we've added a bunch more videos, and are now up to the 50,000+ mark.

I'll try and run the script more often to build our database up.

Please let me know if you have any special content requests, and I'll see what I can find.

Enjoy!

Stop it. You are fueling my fantasies of you as Ms. Norbury from Mean Girls.

Talking of which, get cracking with this competition. Make time! It has you written all over it.

My waking state is confusion. Every so often I get it together long enough to string a few words together to form a sentence.

A suggestion: A FLASH ONLY COMPETITION!!!

We've run one (maybe more) of these in the past. https://www.lushstories.com/competitions/quickie-sex.aspx for example. We had some super hot entries.

I really like the shorter format competitions, as a) They give authors a real challenge, b) Less words for my ageing eyes to read evil4

We're due one fairly soon I'd say.

Cool theme.

I asked this before the Changes competition, but forgot the answer. Is there a minimum for these? Can I submit a flash?

If there are minimum or maximum word limits, I mention them on the competition page.

For this one:

"As an added challenge, stories should be no longer than 6,000 words."

So a flash piece would be fine icon_smile It would probably have to be an incredible piece of writing (quite within your abilities!), if it were to beat a well written story which was towards the upper word count limits. Just a thought to bear in mind.

Perhaps I should make it clearer, or specify the upper and lower word limits in the competition copy in future?

It's story competition time again, and this one has a very playful nature to it.

Masked Competition

The word "mask" appeared in English in the 1530s, from Middle French masque "covering to hide or guard the face", derived in turn from Italian maschera, from Medieval Latin masca "mask, specter, nightmare".

Masks. We all wear them. The work face. The face you put on when visiting family. The out in public face. But what about putting on a different mask to accentuate who you really are or want to be?

Competition Theme

Join the masquerade ball and put on a different mask. Be a super hero or a mysterious stranger. A kitten or a clown. Maybe you're already wearing one - everyone thinks you're a good girl, but at night, when the mask comes off, the real you comes out?

With the likes of ritual masks, medical fetish masks, gas masks, theatrical masks, steampunk gear, bdsm masks, carnival masks, animal fetish role play masks or any other masked disguise at your disposal, the possibilities are far reaching.

A mask, either physical or metaphorical, must feature in competition stories. Put them on or take them off!

As an added challenge, stories should be no longer than 6,000 words.

Prizes:

Winner: $150
Second Place: $100
Third Place: $50

Walkers sell more than half the crisps in the UK. They use non-recyclable plastic packaging which doesn’t rot. That means millions of crisp packets end up filling landfills, littering our parks and clogging up our oceans. @GaryLineker you sell spuds, do so with a good conscience.

Topic Easier way of purging dead profiles off friend's list?
Posted 08 Apr 2018 01:04

I've been here a while and have collected up hundreds of friends - and tonight i spent about an hour purging quite a few off my list by hand. But to find out if they were dead profiles, I had to look at each profile. While some people just aren't active - a number of people don't have an active profile ("nothing here").

For these, is there an easier way to bump them off the friend's list? I'm sort of wondering why it's not automatic. If they're not here, why have traces of them left on the site?

Very good point.

There are lots of clean-up routines on the site. It looks like that isn't one included as yet.

I'll let Gav know.

Topic Google Drive Files corrupted when cut and pasting to Lush
Posted 07 Apr 2018 03:52

You need to paste the story into flat file format / plain text, before copying and pasting it again, into lush.

Most devices / programs, include lots of code when you copy text, which renders in a whole host of ways, depending on the website / form / program, you are submitting to.

To remove all that unwanted junk code, it's best to post into notepad (or equivalent) first, or to format it as plain text. Then C & P to our form here. It's the same on most sites you submit to. Always paste as plain text and you'll have no issues.

Topic Site Crashes - Pleassssssse make it stop
Posted 04 Apr 2018 00:27

The site is now constantly monitored, and automatically rebooted when problems arise. It should be down no longer than 7-8 minutes if there is a problem.

Gav has also been working on the site the last few days (which you wouldn't be aware of), upgrading to a newer version of Windows server. That may have caused a longer period of downtime.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

That might help in terms of deeper spidering of our tag words.

https://tags.lushstories.com/fetish/category/7/

How many would we feature in the pull out menu (when putting your mouse over the category button on the LHS) - the Top 50?

I'm not a huge fan of those type of menus though, they are often fiddly for the user, particularly on mobile devices.

We'll give the idea more thought Mr. Rumple!

Topic "Swingers" Category Added
Posted 02 Apr 2018 02:22

In the interests of helping our readership find stories they are most interested in more easily, we decided it was best to subdivide the "Group Sex" category further.

The "threesomes" category has been recently added, however that didn't really help those looking for stories about swinging.

We deemed that a popular enough search to merit its own category. Swinging doesn't necessarily involve group sex, so it made sense to split that out.

So here it is: https://www.lushstories.com/swingers.aspx/57

Swinging, sometimes called wife swapping, husband swapping or partner swapping, is a non-monogamous behavior in which both singles and partners in a committed relationship engage in sexual activities with others as a recreational or social activity.

Authors - if you have any swinger / swinging stories you'd like to move across to the new category, please do so. They shouldn't require reverifying.

Thank you!

Nicola
