I was told I have to wait for my "upgrade" as they are rolling it out gradually.

Gav tells me it looks pretty good. Seeing it's free with the Windows I bought last year, I may as well give it a whirl when it's available.

In that case, I'll only read that one if there's glitter involved.

Funny you should say that. I spoke to a Primary School teacher a while ago, and she said that glitter was "the syphilis of the craft world". laughing9

I think we should go for it. It'll bring newer stories to the site that aren't so typical to the ones you find here. Maybe it can be a revenge historical piece. Since that won't be its own category. :)

Will you stop jiggling around please, I can't concentrate on what I was trying to say in the first place.

Maybe I'll write 'Orgy at the OK Corral' with a new meaning to the term 'gunslinger' featuring Cock Holiday.

Why are they not typically included? Not historic enough? When does something become "historic"? dontknow

Topic Have a question....
Posted 31 Jul 2015 04:56

We only allow one picture at the top of the story.

The reason being, stories with images strewn throughout, often take the reader away from their mind's view of the story. They can visually decimate a story. That, and copyright issues.

Topic New Category Poll - Historical Sex Stories
Posted 31 Jul 2015 02:19

We've had quite a response in another thread, about adding a "Historical" sex story category. It's hugely popular on Amazon, and therefore makes sense to add one here.

Proposed category description to give you an idea as to what type of stories might be suited to it:

Immerse and indulge yourself in tales of sex and romance, set amid a backdrop of rich historical detail. Mingle with the upper echelons of society at a Venetian masked ball, witness the gluttony and debauchery of ancient Rome, and experience the shocking scandal of a Victorian high-society love affair. This category is exclusively for stories set in a historical time period.

Poll open for 2 weeks.

Topic New Category...
Posted 31 Jul 2015 01:54

Looks like a no for this one.

Topic Is there another story category you'd like to have on Lush?
Posted 29 Jul 2015 01:20

I would still like to see a 'historical' category.

Medieval lesbian princesses, roman gladiatorial orgies, victorian high-society blowjobs, etc...

Phew, so would I now!

Did we put this up for a separate vote already?

Those douchebag crap-eating pond life at Twitter just permanently suspended my account. All my 29k followers wiped out, just like that.

But they can't keep me down. I'm starting again. One down, only 28,999 to go.

Oh, and its now @naughty_annie

Followed!

Why did they suspend you? I thought they had a no holes (sic) barred policy?

Topic An end to online affairs?
Posted 25 Jul 2015 12:11

Interestingly, AM approached some of the top City of London brokers to help them raise £130m in order to float the company on the Stock Exchange. They were politely turned away. The brokers did not want to be associated with them. I believe the same thing happened in Canada last year.

Makes you wonder if they were being hypocritical and guilty of double standards when compared to some of the things that go on there. Or is it, perhaps, that there are some things that money can't buy!

I know, I get it all the time too!

Topic Haiku...Lushly speaking
Posted 25 Jul 2015 11:05

"A haiku is five beats,
Followed then by seven beats,
With five beats to... Conclude."

(SHIT)

xx SF

Why is that FUNNY?

Anybody? Liz? No one???

I'll explain. Like all my jokes, it works on a few levels, okay... Most obviously, on it's OWN it's funny 'cos it's NOT a haiku. It COULD be if you replace 'conclude' with 'end' or even 'finish' both one syllable words... (Go on... TRY ME ON 'finish' being a one syllable word!!!) But FUNNIER STILL is that if you replace 'conclude' with the word 'complete' not only does the joke still work but IT RHYMES!!!

It's like playing in 5/4 time. People who know music get it...

A pianist and singer are rehearsing "Autumn Leaves" for a concert and the pianist says:

"OK. We will start in G minor and then on the third bar, modulate to B major and go into 5/4. When you get to the bridge, modulate back down to F# minor and alternate a 4/4 bar with a 7/4 bar. On the last A section go into double time and slowly modulate back to G minor."

The singer says: "Wow, I don't think I can remember all of that."

The pianist says: "Well, that's what you did last time."

Usually we go with a 70% in favour vote. It looks pretty much on the fence as it stands.

lol @ Cleo el Gato.

Cheating stories - how I cheated on my partner.

Revenge stories - how I got my own back on my unfaithful partner.

They are different enough I guess, to warrant a new category in their own right, if the demand is there.

EDIT: Moved to the site suggestions forum.

Topic Which improvements or features would you like to see added?
Posted 23 Jul 2015 08:35



Nicola and Gav both read through the posts in this thread. John was simply offering his opinion on your proposal.

If I understand you correctly, you believe it would be better for the site to automatically close user-created rooms with no shields, booting out all of their users, instead of leaving them for the chat mods to look after? This sounds to me like a very annoying irritation for users of the chatrooms.

We have deliberately set the chat rooms up in such a way, having researched all the biggest and best ones, and the way they operate.

The vast majority of adults, behave as such. Kicking everyone just because the room creator left, doesn't make sense at all.

If it is a user generated room, and the member who created it leaves, I am sure that in most cases, the conversations will continue to flow, in the same manner. If anyone steps out of line, then crowd control should be used to kick them, or if the whole chat room has turned pear-shaped, there should be a way to report the whole chat room easily.

Topic I don't trust Paypal
Posted 23 Jul 2015 08:24

Paypal are the 2nd largest payment processor in the world. If you don't trust them, I suggest you should stay away from buying anything online, ever.

Unfortunately, Paypal do not appear to like prepaid cards (some work, most don't, from what I've heard), so neither we, nor anyone else, can "ensure" that they will work. I am sure they have their reasons (I don't think prepaid cards can be verified for example).

I can click YT videos on my profile, they play fine.

Some are restricted from playing on anywhere other than YT, but that has always been the case.

I think Gav has either fixed it, or YT have.

Posted 21 Jul 2015 01:55

Or whatever the case may be -- is it possible for us to get their avatars and related info removed from the timeline? I'm always staring at big white questionmarks - it's only a mild irritation but an irritation none the less.

This should happen automatically as the site cache clears. If not, there needs to be some clear up process added to the scheduling.
