I know your pain... We must have about a dozen or so mice at least, this year alone. It makes me miss my snake and cats. If I had the former, at least I could get some catharsis.

If the latter, cattharsis.

We have Joy and Rage, why not go for the trifecta? What's making you sad? What's going wrong in your lives? What's been bothering you for a while that you just need to get off your chest? Who knows, maybe telling a fellow 2hufag might make you feel better.

Same, except that I worked instead of studying. Now I'm stuck on dead end jobs until I finish my studies in a cheap, garbage college (which will take forever because I don't have much free time and I waste what I have) unless, of course, I get laid off. Then, I'll have like two months to find a job or a bridge.

don't listen to military recruiters or commercials. The only things guaranteed in the military these days is a shitty job, a free place to live, and free college education.

Oh, and also you can elect to have the military pay off existing college loans instead of giving you money for college.

Because people who have already written things in part would then be angrier than the minorly peeved over this issue. The fact of the matter is, it's a seasonal contest simply because Christmas is too selective for those that don't celebrate it, and strangles creativity. It's also too late in the month to do such a contest, as then it would end on the 25th. This is meant to be a baseline, where as future years are meant to be alterations to the formula.

If I changed it, it would also defeat the purpose of the contest to begin with, and that is to test the waters. One cannot learn without trial and error, and if this is in error I need to first confirm that it is as such. Others have voiced an interest in the contest. That's plenty enough reason to keep it the way it is, as spitting on their hard work will hardly be according to plan.

Furthermore, the fact that a winter contest was held some time in the past doesn't simply invalidate the idea. At the least, it happened a year ago. There are new touhous, new canon, new possibilities. Touhou isn't a static series of just one game. There was a new game announced recently, even.

Plus, if one thinks that all there is to winter is Letty pairings, they need to be more creative. I've already listed some of those possibilities. There is more to a story than waifus, after all. Hibernation for insects and a certain eyeball thing is a topic that can be broached. The harsh Winter months can be trying on one's coffers, and threadbare linens are far from suitable to keep out the cold. Winter is a thing of death, where as Autumn is dying, Summer is life and Spring is birth. If all goes well, I'll take your words into consideration in Spring, but as of right now they will simply muddle my intentions of establishing something to judge the state and opinions of the site by.

Well, I obviously can't stop you from starting contests. I would like to offer some advice though. It might be a good idea to start up a contest intrest thread or survey before making a multi-part contest plan. Involving the community in the decision making stage would help to solidify both writer and reader turnout.
>> No. 22849

I participated in the contest poll after the most recent. There was an interest, which is why I'm doing it to begin with.

The two stories would be pretty different both in scope and in genre. My current story has thick, infrequent updates, so if I started another one I'd want to try shorter, more frequent updates.

But I do agree with >>22748. Even if starting the other story did clear things up, I think I'd run the risk of burning out. Then I'd have to struggle with updating two stories. And there's no way I'm putting my current story on hiatus unless I get hit by a truck or lose my hands.

Instead, whenever I get ideas for the new story I'll jot them down and gradually work on an OP to get it out of my system while I continue updating my current story. If I still have an urge to tell the story in a few months and am 110% confident I can handle updating two stories at once, then I'll give it a try.

But until then, I think I'll hold off. Thank you for the advice, wise anons.

Since the first one (>>18124) is well past autosage.
If you have any questions regarding the site's backstory and/or stuff that veterans of THP might know, just ask here.

Just as a start: what is the purpose of /words/? (Yes it has been asked before but no actual answer came)

That sounds more like Hakugyokurou LA. But like I said, I've only been here two years.


Keymaster is the reason I'm here. YAF, Sukima, EZMode, Hungry Youkai, Patchwork, Lion, Owen/Tepes, S.L.D.T. and Serial ATA are/were all very prolific. And I'd personally consider Fell, Klaymen, Thirty Terawatt Satellite Cannon and Clear Sights to be pretty influential.

MiG was a sort of in the middle, in between a truly freeroamig CYOA and a more story based thing like SDM LA. Naturally, problems came up on both sides.

HY must be mentioned as SDM LA influenced and brought alot of people here. But well it's hard for mortals to do a god's job.

Not that old, its style is uniquely modern YAF's

SerialATA is still writing, just taking a
long time due to A) sort of limited computer access and B) WRITING 5 STORIES AT ONCE!

Pronounced Wuh-Gehn, of course

People have used titanpad for single updates and small writing competitions through the IRC for a while now, and I've been thinking that it'd be a good idea to expand on that a little bit. For those who don't know, titanpad is a site where several people can edit a text field at the same time, which makes for quite a different experience from writing in your room by yourself.

My proposal would be nothing complicated, nothing restrictive, nothing that would give our poor admin work: just set up a parallel environment in one of these cooperative writing software/sites/whatever(not necessarily titanpad) and have it open for general use by THP writers and anyone interested in collaborating, editing, proofreading, throwing out ideas or just generally being around, whenever they like. Have a thread in here linking to it and for any related discussion.

Why do this? Well, in my view, a community writing space used for updates, shorts and everything else THP related would have a few advantages:
- Turns writing into something of a social activity, perhaps motivating writers to update way more. This is the major reason, and what sparked this idea to begin with. I don't have any solid proof of this, but notice how the IRC is always active and full of writers every day, even the ones that update once a year? I know I'd be more excited to sit down and write if I had someone 'beside me' online, so to speak, and if there were a constantly visible reminder that other people are around and writing for their own stories. Besides, it's just more fun with more people.
- Quality. More people reading an update early and a faster proofreading process would make update quality better (as long as the writer doesn't get too trigger-happy on ideas and subjective opinions thrown their way.)
- Reader participation. Exposing readers to the process by linking the page on story threads could get them more involved, more interested, perhaps even prompt some people who otherwise might not have tried their hand at writing to have a go at it.

The only con I can see is that some writers might not w

This has been unofficially official for a couple of days, not to mention open knowledge amongst friends for a week or so, so here I am to make it officially offical. I won't mince words: WGen in its current incarnation is no more.

One thing I'd like to note here is that this isn't even my idea. I don't know who the OP is, but I respected their idea enough to get some implementation of it out there. You see, as a writer on THP, with all the faults that come with it, I'm committed by default to the idea of anything that could even potentially increase involvement on the site.

Unfortunately, that involvement thinned out quickly. The first couple of months provided some activity, but not much. By the time September was nearly over, no one was in the pad with any frequency. People seemed to forget that it existed more often than not. Part of that was probably poor advertisement, but I think there also just wasn't much interest overall. There were also legitimate gripes about Titanpad. Whatever the reasons, people stopped using WGen.

And let me be clear that I'm not blaming anybody. This was an experiment. Like all experiments, it was either going to be a success or a failure, and this one didn't work out the way I envisioned. That's okay. I feel like we, as a community, have learned something from it. Hopefully, in the near future, we'll have some other form of collaborate work going on. I can't wait to see how it shapes up, honestly.

In closing, I'd like to thank each and every person who involved themselves in this experiment in one form or another. You were a big help, whether you think so or not. I love this community, for better or worse, and people like you give me hope that we can lean toward the former. Thank you all very much.

I've put together an archive of everything (save some exceptions) written in the pad. Maybe it'll be of interest, maybe it won't. It's here if you need it.


Stay joyful, THP.
