File 148936492383.png - (672.87KB, 1414x2000, ^F79FA77C1B0AE1CA00C0461E3458EFCE134F54D82DFC5D670.png) [iqdb]
As I've mentioned before, I think I've kind of lost the whole inspiration/motivation to keep writing RiG as a proper CYOA.

But at the same time, I don't really want to leave my readers completely hanging like that. And I still do like Reina as a character, I just can't find a way to get myself back into the proper mindset after so many years.

So instead, a compromise. Rather then traditional CYOA format, I'll instead do some sort of... episodic-style writings, I guess.

Basically, give me the idea of what you want in the context of RiG (so this isn't the place for like, 'what-if' or Robin things), and I'll write something based upon that.

It'd probably be best to try and keep requests such as this in some kind of chronological sense, as they may still wind up being the "canon" for Reina if she happens to show up or cameo in future things...

Just ask for clarifications or anything, or questions whatever, if I'm being dumb. I haven't written in a while, I'm a little rusty.

Did you know that, in these trying times of a page and a half of active TH stories, you can actually watch threads?

You see that [WT] button in the upper right corner? Click it.

You see that floppy disk sorta button next to a story's reply button on each main page? Click that, too, on a story you like. Then click it again on every other story you read, too.

With this active, whenever you have the WT list open, it will tell you how many posts have been made, saged or otherwise, since you last checked said thread. However, it only tells you about threads on the current board you're on. You won't see Underground stuff in TH

Every time I tell people that this is in fact a thing, they seem downright floored. As such, it seemed a good time to tell people this, as I've noticed time and time again as stories get buried, my own and those of others alike. As things are, stories missing their attention is a good way to end up with inactive stories. I for one would like nothing more than to see this site become active as it once was. A pipe dream perhaps, but it's the point of my throwing all these contests out there.

You could say I'm determined to see this site active again. It's been sad to see the activity dip over these past four years I've been lurking.

Good to know. I always just assumed that button summoned snacks.

Not really.

To believe in the world I want to live in and be there.

That sounds like a Naruto quote. Speaking of Naruto, I'm kinda surprised we made it this far without a cringy crossover story.
To find new ways to love the Touhou series, to do more to add to THP as a community, and to improve on the amount of time that passes between updates to my stories.

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.

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

I'm doing all of this off of (very pithy) savings, so my budget's not going to have a lot leeway for clubbing, I fear.

No, sadly I do not. I do have sharp teeth, but those don't generally increase one's snuggliness rating.

Not sure why. I for one give my snuggliness a 5 star rating.

This video is joy.

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.

Why would you do this to me? I've been trying to forget about the lost prismriver orgy for years now.
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

As an experiment and a show of support to this idea, I've opened a public pad on my domain. Don't abuse it and have fun.

I'd be surprised if it works as well as you'd think it would.

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.
