Well deserved beers Gav, excellent work.

These Groups are in beta folks. We will brainstorm ideas from the feedback here, look at FB, Goodreads, Reddit and other setups, incorporating the best features as time permits.

Please keep this thread to Groups discussions only. It really doesn't help us on an admin level, having to sift through the banter, to get to the pertinent points.

Thank you!

2 weeks left, some really HOT entries. Something out of the ordinary will have to take it from here.

One weekend is all it takes to pen such a beast for a talented author.

I'm really looking forward to reading the entries on this one.

Topic The Groups discussion thread

Excellent work Gav!

I've been playing with the basics, and will send you notes under separate cover.

For people who don't understand what Groups are for, they are perfect for people who want to share specific niche interests.

For example, Members can create a Group for:

- Writing - plot / character / story development etc.

- Members in Michigan Interested in Getting Together.

- Foot Fetish Pics.

- Porn Video Sharing (using the same code we use in the Hardcore section of the forums?).

- Book Reviews.

- Book Recommendations.

- Sex Toy Advice.

- Film Discussions.

Etc etc.

Well shoot. If I'd known that was the prize I might have done some work, lol. Congrats KE. You're an absolute superstar with a jolly lovely bottom. Love you millions xx

Between the 2 of you, you processed over 40% of the stories last month. You're due a spanking too.

I think we need a team talk ... If only a few verifiers do most of the effort, it's unfair, and the risk of burnout is very real.

October's Moderator of the Month Award, goes to ... someone who's been naughty (verified twice as many stories as anyone else on the team), and not taken her foot off the story queue killing pedal, despite repeated spankings (maybe they aren't such a disincentive?).

The first person to pick up the M.O.T.M. award for the second time running, is KatieElizabeth.

Congratulations Katie!

See me in my office! a1089

Topic Maybe Include info about how to resize pics for chat rooms
Posted 04 Nov 2015 23:59

I've asked Gav to poke his head in. I thought the resizing was all automatic, but it might not be for images hotlinked from elsewhere, instead of uploaded.

Topic Your blocks now extend to forum posts
Posted 04 Nov 2015 02:32

This entire thread is hilarious! I mean .... this is an adult site, right?

We need to worry about people talking shit, questioning your (or your) opinion, complaining about some "troll" talking smack about you? You can't defend yourself?? You want people banned/suspended or some other dreary thing, like .... "blocking their comments" in a site that VALUES FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION??


I think some people need to grow up, and mature into the adult the years say you are .... develope coping skills to protect their fragile egos. Apparently, some take issue with others questioning their opinion or whatever the thread is about.

Blocking comments in a forum cuz you don't like some or you "THINK" they are a troll because they question you??

Some people need to grow up.

Some people need to learn to ignore "bait".

Some people need to read someone elses' opinion/thoughts and stop being so fucking judgmental. Just be fucking thankful and grateful for this site to be functioning and caring about YOU, their member!!

fuck this .... now, you all can block me .... grow up.


PS .... thanks Nicola. xoxo

Amen Sister!

Topic Your blocks now extend to forum posts
Posted 01 Nov 2015 23:50

Excellent addition Gav.

It should hopefully cut down on all the childish drama and ridiculous "he said, she said" messages I / we get on a daily basis (and for the most part, ignore - this is an adult swim site, not kindergarten).

Please keep reporting any issues you find with it. It's obviously preferable that someone doesn't find out you have them blocked, if discretion is the order of the day, for example.

Topic What a holiday!
Posted 30 Oct 2015 09:18

I'm just back from a week in Estepona, Southern Spain, visiting old friends.

Did anyone miss me?

The town is beautiful. We took a trip down to Tarifa too overnight, which was spectacular. You can see Africa from there. I had no idea it was so close to Southern Spain.

We drank some delicious wines, and the food was amazing. I put on 3 kg in a week Embarassed

Topic Smashwords Added to the eBook Importer
Posted 03 Oct 2015 03:31

For those of you self-published with Smashwords , you might like to add your eBooks to your profile area.

The import tool can do both Amazon and Smashwords now:

If you haven't published with Smashwords, I highly recommend checking them out. They offer a lot to authors:

"Smashwords is the world's largest distributor of indie ebooks, with over 370,000 titles. We distribute your book to major retailers such as Apple, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo."

Although Smashwords syndicate your work to all the major retailers, I recommend setting up an Amazon (KDP) account yourself, and publish directly with them. Then, when you publish on Smashwords, uncheck the Amazon checkbox in the settings.

Topic Away and Black boxes
Posted 03 Oct 2015 01:38

I've asked Gav to fix this up as an option, as it's been a pet peeve of mine for a while. If you're mid story, and you want to be totally uninterrupted, a black box pinging up, can really throw you off.

Thanks for the recommendation Nicola. Haven't updated it for a while but I do love a sexy pic or two!

I didn't notice a link in the bio. Not that I'm fishing for one or anything :-" evil4

We have a lot of people here using tumblr, I've seen countless profile links.

So much so, we're going to be adding a specific link URL in members' profile settings.

Here's one I recommend:

Any mentions of in your tumblr posts / bio blurb, would be greatly appreciated. It's also a good way to draw potential readers to your own lush profile 3601
