About TraceEkies

I have been writing and posting adult type stories on various websites since 2003. All of my stories are hetero-sexual and consensual. Most contain a heavy dose of teasing.

Stay horny my friends.

(The avatar is not me. I'm not quite as old. not as good looking, nor nearly as interesting.)

Topic: NEW questions concerning the Membership options
Posted: 03 Jan 2015 13:57

This is a post from Nicola in the old Q&A thread:

The Premium Story Library, hasn't been activated yet, but here's a brief rundown.

It will contain stories which authors do not wish to make available to the general public. These will typically be meatier works, longer stories, or even complete ebooks.

How the idea came about, was that an author contacted me, saying she'd like to share her other stories, but not in a way that content thieves have easy access. She very kindly said she'd allow us to publish her works, to support the site, if they were behind a pay wall as it were. This means her work is more protected, and it adds to the draw of paid membership.

The library will grow over time. It will contain ebooks / longer stories, which we consider to be of a very high quality. Authors who contribute to the Premium Library, will of course get more exposure to their work, and it's likely that they will be more widely read as a result.

Thank you, I had not previously seen this. I will await implementation.

As SimplyJohn said, it hasn't all been finalized yet, otherwise it would be up...

I understand that plans for the premium library have not been finalized. What I don't understand is that you (kornslayer1) have at least heard of a premium library, whereas I have no recollection of it having been mentioned. Have I missed a link or thread or something else about it?

Regarding the new premium library ...

I have not previously heard of this. Is there someplace where I can find more infor about it?

... it's easy to see that people often vote not on the story's quality, but on how much it tickles their fancy ...

or whether they like or dislike the author... or how that particular author has voted on their own story... or whether the author has offended them in a chat session... or whether the author has made a forum post they disagree with... or, or, etc.

Everyone of course is entitled to their own opinion.


TE, I disagree with you concerning the voting. The current system aligns with other voting systems, Amazon for example. You suggest a simple system of clicking ‘like’ for story approval. But, a ‘like’ doesn’t say anything about how well a reader liked a story. The numeric voting system tells how well readers ‘liked’ a story in a collective way.


The #8 story in my example, the one with 56 total votes and a score of 4.98, is Possibly's latest story. It not only has more votes than any other story released during the month of July, it also has more '5' votes than any other story released during the month, yet it is only ranked #8 because someone, likely without any malicious intent, voted a '4'. I believe it deserves to be #1.


I do agree with you; four is a good score. However, I would walk away from a story or poem giving no vote before I kill a story’s ranking by awarding a score of 'four', especially when 48 people felt that the story deserved a five. That’s just me.

My 2 cents

I agree wholeheartedly; I too believe that '4' is a good score. And like you, I skip voting if the vote I really want to make would 'kill' the story's ranking. Unfortunately, not everyone is so observant as to notice its current score or so polite as to avoid 'killing' a story's rank by casting a vote that is below the story's current vote average.

No scoring system is going to please everyone. Hell, no scoring system is going to please most people. I've seen it done umpteen ways, and there's always people arguing that it sucks.


So true. I didn't really expect everyone to agree with me, (although it would be nice to see a least a little agreement).

More than anything, I was hoping to inspire a few well thought out comments on the subject, which I seem to have done. In the end, if the ranking method were changed such that a story with 55 votes of '5' and a single vote of '4' did not get ranked below a story with only 10 votes, (albeit all '5'), I would feel that my posts have not gone for naught.

Once upon a time, Br'er Rabbit, an avid reader of adult stories, discovered Lush Stories and immediately signed up. As it was a Sunday afternoon and he didn't have anything else that he needed to do, he did a little reading. He started wirh this months popular stories in the straight sex category and managed to get the top six read before getting chased off by Br'er Fox.

Br'er Rabbit thought these six stories were pretty good. He even posted a laudatory comment on each one. He awarded each of them a score of four. his score for really good stories. (He would award a score of five only to a story he considered to be truly exceptional.)

Here are the top twelve stories before his votes:

Rank Votes Score
1 48 5.00
2 47 5.00
3 24 5.00
4 16 5.00
5 11 5.00
6 11 5.00
7 10 5.00
8 56 4.98
9 36 4.94
10 20 4.94
11 16 4.94
12 14 4.93

Here are the top twelve after his votes:

Rank Votes Score Was
1 10 5.00 7
2 56 4.98 8
3 49 4.98 1
4 48 4.98 2
5 25 4.96 3
6 20 4.95 10
7 36 4.94 9
8 17 4.94 4
9 16 4.94 11
10 14 4.93 12
11 12 4.92 5
12 12 4.92 6

And so, after casting six conscience based votes, (no maliciousness intended - he is not an author and had never even heard of the authors of these stories), Br'er Rabbit has wreaked havoc on the rankings. The former #7, with only ten votes, the least of all twelve, has become #1; #8 has become #2; the former #1 is now third; and the previous #5 and #6 are at the bottom of the list.

All of the top ten have more '5' votes than the former #7, yet he is now #1 because Br'er rabbit only read the top six.

Do away with numeric voting.

If you like it, click on a 'like' button. If you don't - do nothing.

Vote count becomes 'like' count. I think most of us go by that anyway.

First, let me say that I think Lush Stories on the whole is pretty damn good. I post my stories here and read those of others here because I like the place. However, there are always going to be things that could be improved, and there are always going to be things that people want changed.

... it would be nice to be able to put a story into more than one category, for example, a lesbian story in an office could go into both categories, but linking back to one uploaded page :D might help when it comes to finding what you're looking for.
I am inclined to agree in concept with the above. I would suggest however, a slightly different approach.

Do away with the categories and rely solely on the tags. Make proper tagging mandatory, something the reviewers have to pass on. Allow stories to be excluded by tag from a member's listing of new, popular and viewed. Continue to allow searching by tag. (It would probably be best with the foregoing if tags were predetermined.)

Thanks for letting me know. Now you can't vote on my poems.


**Comment removed by moderator for being ridiculously and unnecessarily rude.**

I knew I'd get some blow-back on my suggestion but I had no idea it would be so severe.

Denying me the privilege of voting on your poems - that is cruel and unusual punishment.

No Rules, Part 7

“C'mon you two, pick up the pace.” Jarrad was leading them up the trail from the waterfall. Brad and Ashley had slowed a little and fallen fifty feet or so behind. “Keep going, we're still with you,” Brad said. “Ashley and I have just got something we need to talk about.” “Okay, but keep up. It's close to four and we need to be moving,” Jarrad urged as he continued the return trek to the...

Ashley was wearing a man's shirt. Her feet and legs were bare, and what she was wearing under the shirt, if anything, was a matter for conjecture. “Can I join in?” she asked as she entered the den. Her stepbrother Brad, and his friend Jarrad were in a serious sounding discussion. “You wouldn't be interested,” Brad responded. “Just a minute, bro!” Jarrad snapped, "who says she's...

It was the short skirt and bare legs that caught Nick Cramer's attention. He was waiting for a couple slices of pizza he had ordered at one of the mall's food courts. His back was to the counter and he was leaning against it, watching a girl who was sitting alone. Hot! That girl is hot! he thought. She was wearing one of those pleated tartan skirts. It was probably long enough to be...

“So, did you get permission?” Ashley asked. It was Saturday and she was talking on the phone to Jill. “Yeah, she's still fooled about you.” “About me?” Ashley gasped, “What about you.

I just asked if you could fix me up with him.” “Right...

“So what do you think?” “Twirl around again. I think it looks really hot.” Jill rose up on her toes and spun like a ballerina. The red and black checked flirt skirt fanned out, exposing her bare legs. “Oh yeah,” Ashley said, “Brad would really like that.” “Huh? You mean your brother, Brad?” “Stepbrother, not brother, but yeah, that's who I meant.” Even when Jill was standing still,...

“So, did you really do it?” Jill asked as she sat down. “Did I really do what?” Ashley responded, looking up from her book. “Watch television with my brother and your brother and a bunch of other guys in nothing but a see-through blouse.” “Huh?

Brad's door was closed. Ashley knocked. “Come in,” he hollered. Ashley pushed the door open. She looked at the clothes strewn around the room. “Yuck, you really need to clean this place,” she snapped. Brad had just cinched the belt to his jeans. Ashley looked at his bare chest and imagined what was hidden below the belt. “I'm on my way to Jarrad's so I can't do it today.” Brad looked up....

George had seen her topless, even kissed her while Jarrad had his hand between her legs. Brad had been there too, his fingers playing with her bare nipples. She had been in the backyard pool with her stepbrother and two of his friends. The bottom of a string bikini was all she had been wearing. Ashley and Brad had been thrown together a few years earlier when his mother had married her...

“Brad, I need some help,” Ashley hollered from the door of her room. She was wearing a towel, open down the side, with, quite clearly, nothing under it. She hastily sat down at her dressing table and awaited her stepbrother's arrival. “Shit,” Brad mumbled aloud, “Done something wrong with her computer again.” He was in the kitchen playing a game on his iPhone. “Yes,” he shouted, “I'll be...

Ashley stepped out of the shower, naked and dripping wet. She grabbed a towel to dry herself while focusing on a most intriguing question: what would she wear? Ashley was preparing to join her stepbrother, Brad, and his best friend Jarrad. She expected that whatever she chose to wear, she wouldn't be wearing it long. Ashley had spent the afternoon with the two of them at the family's...
