I think Keine has the best hat. It's still darn silly though.

Continuation of >>13959

In short, use this thread to report any issues with the site, provide general feedback or suggestions.

Since the last thread there have been a lot of changes made to THP including new features (eg in the settings menu) and to the story list among other things. I'm too lazy to provide patch notes for every update but things change regularly. Feel free to ask questions related to that as well if you have any.

A shame, but thank you for the help regardless.
The search begins.

How's that Untitled Alice Game coming along?

Whoops! Looks like the previous one is finally on autosage. Here's to another five years, I guess.

Let's not actually take five years, though it's most probable at this point.

Might as well take this opportunity to repeat my recommendation for From the Scarlet Moon Flows the Spring and add that Clever, Audacious, and Wise -- and most of Teruyo's stuff from the past couple of years, really -- is worth a read.

I think a lot of that comes down to how people voted. Readers seem more interested in dealing with the mystery of being a stone than the actual work at the SDM and possible reasons why a werewolf would bother. There's still a fair amount of story ahead, however. So who knows what may yet happen. While I don't agree with some of your conclusions, I think there's still room to explore.

We've been without one of these for almost ten months. Time to revive the tradition!

What have you been reading lately? What do you recommend to your fellow THPers?
 [Reply to this thread]
From the Scarlet Moon Flows the Spring is a good story. Though I'm sure all five of you left have either read it or chosen to ignore it.

I'm just sad for the lack of activity (that I care about), okay?

It had a lot of potential, that's for sure. Unfortunately, Kagerou's character was too weak to serve as a meaningful foil for any of the admitidly well executed supporting cast. Not intelligent/ambitious enough to have a fun scene with patchy, not witty/horny enough to have a fun scene with Remi, and the list continues in this fashion. The most egregious of these deficencies has to be her leadership/charisma though. I expected the contrast between Sakuya's brutal regime and whatever style Kagerou went with would be a central pillar of the story, but there was hardly any interplay at all between her and the fairy brigade.

I do have to acknowledge the interaction with Banki was well done though.

Spiritual SAGE for off-topic.

For quite some time I’ve wanted to write more on the site. I know I currently have running stories but those often require time to get right and to then wait around for votes. What I miss the most from early site days is being able to write something pretty much whenever. I know that it’s impossible to get that level of activity again in a single thread but there’s other ways to get close to that feeling.

To that end I’m posing the following question: What would you be willing to read and vote regularly in?

I’m more than open to reviving my older stories that were left unfinished for one reason or another. What I enjoy the most about writing on THP is the interactivity part and so it’s important that the numbers are there. If there’s no demand then I won’t bother. In that same vein, I’m not really interested in writing shorts or long form non-interactive stories.

I’d also be willing to start something new if someone pitches a good idea. However, I’d prefer it not to be too plot-heavy as I want to focus on something easier to write as I deal with other ongoing stories. Light and fast is ideal but it can be something else that works in rotation with my other stories.

Depending on responses I may put it to a vote here. Might also be worth noting if there’s something you wouldn’t read and vote in that’s been proposed. As THP’s active voter base is small these days, I want to try to have something that keeps most people on board. That way if one or two people go away or don’t vote for a while, it doesn’t become frustrating.

I tried not to gas on too much here but if there’s any questions about my proposal or thinking/whatever, I’ll happily answer them in this thread.

Oh and one last thing: Happy Birthday, THP!

Thank you for all your input. I took the last month to think over things and, truth be told, I'm still not sure what I want to do most. The results tell me that I could do whatever I wanted, more or less.

There's a lot of work that needs to be done for all the alternatives before I can get to writing and I'll be deciding which to tackle in the coming days after I get to updating my already ongoing stories. I want to do things properly and that requires planning. Even for something fast and not-so-serious.

Let me know if you have any other thoughts or comments but otherwise, else watch this space. I'll get to it """soon""".
why must you sadden me so

>U wot?

Last year talking was had about Nanowrimo participation and some folks had to say "Updating every day for a month, during THIS time of year? No can do!" I wondered then, what about during another time of year? What about March????

It's valid: winter is a horrible time especially for working people. So, why not a less busier time? And so, Nanowrimo 2019. (2). March starts in about a week. Join, nerd.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it is to

a) write at least 30 updates in March
b) write at least 30,000 words by the end of March

You don't actually have to write every day, and can accomplish b) by dumping 30k words on March 31st. It's an OR statement so no you don't have to do both. Do as you will, what's important is that you DO IT

This was sort of a failure. I guess next time I'll try... the summer? It got a few people writing but that's the thing: a few.

I didn't accomplish this by the end of March using only one story, but was 100 away from 30k words in the story specifically for this, and across other stories put in enough work to meet the goal. I'll think about asking for a story based on a premise I suggest
I really wanted to do some kind of symbolic participation, but that didn't work out at all.

Doubt I'll manage anything in the summer either.

I managed to do an update every day of the month and finish a story. Hooray. Now to join Komachi in slacking off.

Alright, since evidently none of you numbskulls are going to do it, I guess I'll do it after all.

Second verse, same as the first. Update, discuss, do whatever the fuck you need to in order to make some activity on this site every day during NaNoWriMo. That includes bumping this thread. See >>15829 if you're confused about any of this.

Start date is 01 March, ending on 31 March. Get ready to stop jacking off and start contributing, assholes.

Please don't make Okuu sad.

See you lot for another go this summer -- or whenever.

In the interests of keeping the recs thread clean and limited to recommendations, let's bring all other discussion of stories here. Want to have a protracted argument about why writer x is a faget who should die in a freak kitchen accident? Fire your shots here. Want to complain about story y not having enough (or too much, if you're a sissy) grimdark tentacle death blood rape? By all means, make your voice heard here. Just keep it germane to THP stories and we're all good.

Okay, I'll do it. I'm only half-joking. It might happen.
Even just the sentiment is (almost) enough.

We should really make a list of underrepresented 2hus and whinge more about their plight in an attempt to get others to write them.

This is a travesty. The Cabal has been talking away here, and it’s become obvious that we will decidedly not be having a NaNoWriMo this year. Why? Because reasons.

Is this really how we want things to end up? I, for one, do not relish the idea of inertia killing off contests, one of my favourite THP institutions.

However, before I descend into ranting and get a couple of particular individuals on my case, I will admit that “timing” and “circumstances” can and do make things hard on people. Asking you guys to jump onto a full-fledged contest when things are in this state is only asking for disappointment, too. So, what do we do? Well, that’s why I’m dropping this notice a half-month in advance.

What are you on about?

Look, we haven’t had any contests this year, and it looks likely at this rate that we won’t if nobody steps up and organises one. Since it doesn’t look like anyone’s going to do that, I’ve had to jump off of my lazy ass to make it happen.

That’s why I, a shitass anon and failed writer, am bringing you…

When I posted the OP, I was pretty convinced that there wouldn't be anything happening. I had doubts anyone would even notice this thing for more than a second.

So, did we win? I don't really know. Things were reasonably active, mostly on account of the actual NaNoWriMo happening, but that tells me nothing. Would any of that have happened if NaNoWriMo hadn't gone on as usual? I have some doubts. Still, activity is activity, and activity in and of itself is good. Let's just call it a job well done.

For my part, I'd like to apologise twice: once for constantly forgetting to bump the thread, and once more for getting involved in NaNoWriMo and falling through. I know no one particularly cares, but it's personally disappointing to me. Commitments are seriously hard to live up to.

On another note, I'd like to think that this little stunt has had a hand in bringing folks onto the Discord. Before this started, there were something like sixty or seventy of us total, and now we're over a hundred. Some of you went to lurking immediately, and that's to be expected, I guess. For those of you who continue to be active, pat yourselves on the back. You may not see it this way, but you're doing your part to keep a community as vibrant as possible. It'd still be better if folks wrote, voted, and generally did more on the site, though.

Anyway, thanks for tolerating my cheap little joke. There may be a repeat, or there could just as well not. I'd be glad if someone were to take over for me, but I'm of no illusion of that happening. I guess we'll just have to see next year.


P.S. Okuu is doing fine.

P.P.S. Fortune Teller did nothing wrong.

Wait what the fuck we have a discord? I thought we only had an IRC channel.

Yeah, that’s right, fuckheads, we are having a Nana Write More, and it’s gonna be fucking incredible.

“Whoa,” you say. “I thought we weren’t going to have it?”

Are you deaf? Because you heard fucking wrong. Who the hell said that? The ‘Cabal’? I AM THE CABAL YOU PEASANTS. BOW TO ME AND please participate in Nanowrimo please please please I don’t want to be the only one participating.

“Wait. Moral, you can barely fucking update anything!”

To that, invisible talking voice, I reply: That’s what they say every year, but I’ve completed Nanowrimo twice now. I don’t know if I can make it a third time, but god damn it, I’ll try.

>No excuses to those who didn't follow up.
Fuck off, I had a perfectly fine excuse.

I couldn't actually come up with anything to fulfill the request I claimed orz
That's still no excuse. Why would you claim a request if you had no ideas on how to fulfill it in the first place?
Some personal stuff happened in my life two thirds into the month and as such, this project fell by the wayside. Still, I managed to write 20k at least, and while that wasn't the goal, I am happy with it. Nanowrimo was a good motivator.

The next step for me is to edit and polish these 20k words a bit more, now that I don't have a deadline, and then post them.

Congrats to all who hit their goals!

An Addendum to Motivation

This isn't a lot of content, but I feel like I should add to this segment where I stated: "Now, this might sound a little weird to say in the motivation section of all places, but with proper routine and regimen, you don’t even need motivation to keep writing."

Oh past me, you are right, but you are also so very wrong. To get words onto paper, I believe that you need both motivation and discipline. Discipline is the greatest supplement to motivation, or something like that. Without motivation, all you'll get are forced, empty words. And without discipline... well, you'll get me. So if you have the motivation, don't be lazy and especially don't be me. Be disciplined.
stop necroing threads fag
>tfw you have neither but still want to write
