Instead of just posting here, try the Chat Forum: or Site Announcements and Feedback: . More likely to be noticed there. I'm betting that no one from the chat mod team noticed this before and they do watch those forums more closely.

It's one that is perpetually on my to-watch list because ... well ... I don't have time for binge watching right now. Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead are also on that list of shame.

i get pissed when people give me 5s. all of MY stories should get 6s. from now on, anyone who gives me a 5 is gonna get blocked and have a voodoo doll made of them.

Damn it, she's right. We need to be able to crank this baby up to 6!

Topic Please do not contact us about "low" votes on your stories / poems
Posted 02 Jul 2016 05:51

I understand the rating system, but what I find ironic is that certain writers on here who are regularly published have it set to where only certain people can vote on their stories.

How do you do that? I can only see the following settings:

- Public Voting (which lets you set whether guests can vote or only logged in members)
- Disable Scoring (which turns off scoring completely and only allows comments)
- Comments on Score (which forces people giving a score to comment as well)

Nothing about being able to limit it to Friends or other specific groups like you seem to be suggesting.

Personally, I prefer comments to scores. I also believe that the scores are really relative to Lush, not to the literary world as a whole, so a 5 here does not mean it's a 5 in the broader world, only that it meets the goals and standards of this site in an excellent way. As I've said in the past, a like system a la FB would make more sense since that is how most people use it IME (if they like a story, they give a 5, if they don't, they just don't score).

Topic True or False?
Posted 01 Jul 2016 06:20

True (I mean I found what I was looking for on Lush, not necessarily everything I'm looking for)

You get more pleasure from Lush than from you offline relationship(s).

You want to just grab a companion and go on a wild, spontaneous trip somewhere.

Topic Au revoir, Evernote!
Posted 29 Jun 2016 10:07

I use MS Office both at home and work so I've switched to OneNote at this point. If you keep your notebooks on OneDrive, it achieves the same thing as Evernote's cloud (ie. you can make and retrieve notes on any device with a OneNote client). I also found the Android client for Evernote rather limited while the current OneNote app is fairly good.

Topic Sexually too demanding
Posted 29 Jun 2016 10:02

I used to be the one with the higher sex drive and, while I wasn't in that league, I likely drove Mrs. Seeker a bit nuts at times during the early years of our relationship since she has never really had that strong a sex drive. Nowadays, my sex drive has declined (low testosterone) and that plus our rather different sleep schedules have made sex pretty rare. Maybe once our son moves out (could be as early as a year from now) so we can have more daytime fun things will pick up again. That's what I keep telling myself, anyhow.

An odd choice of music for a Trek trailer, but it works. This looks promising but, to be honest, I have become rather suspicious of trailers. Too many good trailers for so-so movies.

Quite likely. And if they succeed, I'm fully expecting our rebel province to take another shot at it using them as inspiration.

Nope. Hopefully, just kicking back, maybe doing some yardwork and finalizing some travel plans for later in the summer.

Topic Brits: Please explain the 'Brexit' situation
Posted 24 Jun 2016 12:19

Congratulations to my dear ancestors the British for leaving the EU. Sovereignty and free market trade for all!

As a side note the US stock market will tank and be a roller coaster for a while but hold what you have and buy low people!!!

Already cashing in on the fun here in Canuckistan. My favorite hedged ETF is down over 3% and I'm buyin', baby.

As for the Brexit itself, it's a bit of chaos the world does not really need right now. The global economy wasn't exactly booming and stable to start with.

Topic Donald Trump's Campaign is approaching bankruptcy
Posted 24 Jun 2016 12:16

At this point the "Dump Trump" idea is a seriously bad one (almost as bad as making the man the Republican presidential nominee in the first place). He is the nominee, this is the will of the people (stupid stupid people who do stupid things stupidly, yes, I'll give you that). If you pull some trick now to take the nomination away from him, a) you create a much larger chasm between the party and the voter, exposing the corruption of the political process (that "We the people" bit was all bullshit, eh?), and b) you leave a lot of the people who support Trump disenfranchised and pissed off - and they're not going anywhere. I could see the party self-destructing over that (which from the outside, seems like it might not be such a bad thing, - burn the field to allow for new growth - but I doubt it'll get that far). So, as unpleasant as it is, the GOP needs to swallow it's medicine on this one, and hopefully they're at least aware enough to learn a lesson or two from this misadventure.

This. Screwing Donald just means he goes indie and takes a chunk of his votes with him, splitting the right and handing Hillary the keys to the Oval Office on a silver platter. Of course, if The Donald doesn't tone down his rhetoric and get some real political operators running the campaign, that may happen anyhow.

Though, to be honest, I just bought a dollar-hedged ETF for a good price so can't really complain too much about the market chaos the Brits have unleashed on us.

Topic eBooks
Posted 17 Jun 2016 08:52

I'm currently looking to get my first novella published and I'm struggling because most publishers are looking for longer works.

This is something that has always irked me a bit. Novellas need more love and in the age of the e-book, you'd think the lower cost of production might make them more attractive. I remember a publisher (forget who) did put out a great line of s-f and fantasy novellas back in the eighties or nineties and I'd love to see something similar.

However, best option seems to be to wait until you have 3 or 4 written and then put them out under a collective title as Stephen King did with Different Seasons (which has 4 novella/novelette length works in it).

Topic Just wondering about something?
Posted 16 Jun 2016 09:33

I prefer Carly, even though Carly Fiorina kinda ruined the name for me.

I just think of Carly Simon instead.

Names should be kept fairly simple unless you're trying to be allegorical or something (naming a Christian character "Grace" and that sort of thing). Ian Fleming picked the name James Bond off the cover of a book (Birds of Jamaica by James Bond or something along that line) because it was fairly plain and, in Fleming's words, "dull". I think he was on to something there. Flowery names are good in some contexts (e.g. fantasy) but simple works best if you're dealing with real world people, which is what most erotica is dealing with.
