I am struggling with a decision on this topic. I was hoping for a eureka moment with a pair of avatars screaming out at me, but it hasn't happened yet.

I'll leave it be for the time being.

Please keep posting mock-ups / any ideas you have.

This section is primarily intended for authors to promote themselves, rather than being used by people who have no interest in our community, name dropping their websites.

But good luck with your approach to life.

There was an outage 3 or 4 days ago, for an hour or so. Something to do with log files filling up disk space.

The host has been given instructions on what to do. Gav has it covered icon_smile

There have been no server problems reported by our host today.

I just voted on your latest poem and it worked fine. And you have lots of comments on it too.

Hopefully it was simply a minute tear in the time space continuum and normal service has been resumed!

Topic A Shout Out To Some Wonderful Mods!!
Posted 09 Oct 2016 03:02

Very kind of you MJ!

This sounds like it could be a CSS issue / option, and could be fixed programmatically, regardless of image size. It should be; "Title, By Author", then the image, and then the story title and body. Unless of course, people wish to have the Title, By Author, overlaid on the image.

It might be best to have it as an option for authors to choose either / or?

I'll talk to our resident code genius about it.

A big thank you to our Mods who helped out. You do a fantastic job.

Did I draw these on a napkin in the kitchen? Yes.

I love that you did that!

Those look Picasso or Monet influenced. Are you classically trained? I can see you know your way around line drawings.

Topic writing family based stories.
Posted 26 Sep 2016 04:33

It's a grey area, and stories are handled on a case by case basis.

Put it this way, stories which deliberately cause moderators headaches, trying to skirt around our rules, are not encouraged.

Fetish Sex Stories Competition

This competition is all about Erotic Fetishes:

"A form of sexual desire in which gratification is linked to an abnormal degree to a particular object, item of clothing, part of the body, situation or activity."

Competition Theme

Fetish stories cover all kinds of fetishism activities. These typically include (but are not limited to) a fetish for feet, latex, watersports, pantyhose, bdsm, stockings, rubber, spanking, shoes, smoking, gas masks, uniforms etc.

Although some fetishes may appear bizarre to some, they are perfectly normal to others. We are very open-minded, and are looking forward to reading stories, based around a wide variety of fetishes and scenarios.

Stories should be limited to 7,500 words for this competition.

Full details can be found here.

We are delighted to announce that are sponsoring this competition.

With over 5 million members, they are the world's leading social networking website for people interested in BDSM, fetishism, and kink (if you are already a member of FL, an Amazon Gift Card will be offered as an alternative prize):

If we go this way, it would be a small selection of avatars offered at signup, otherwise it may add a hurdle we don't want. The easier it is to sign up on a site, with the fewest steps, the better.

Or we could go the default route, and pick 2 of the most attractive models, like these:

How about adding the avatar selection to the sign-up page and making it part of the registration process?

They can pick one of the existing stock images initially and change it once their account is up and running.

Something completely different... Think

I know you won't necessarily be a 'newbie' if you have a default avatar, but if you've been here a while it might give you the motivation to get off your lazy arse and pick a new one. :)

I like that thinking. It's why the current ones were deliberately a little on the vulgar side. But some people don't seem to mind that at all!

The other option could be to disallow story submissions until people have changed from the default avatars? That could potentially annoy people and put them off submitting though. Or perhaps a pop up after a week or two, suggesting people will see more activity / attention, by customising their avatar?

Bump for more ideas!
