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.

Wasn't there a story with an evil Hina? Just name drop it in here if you remember.

I think the love triangle part is a bit forced.
Didn't that one butler mystery story have Hina as one of the baddies?
Not so much as a main baddie. Just a victim played as a pawn. It's still a good story. The author is Keymaster if you want to go check it out.

It's been a good thanksgiving, and it's been a great month! I'm thankful for all the new stories and their daily update schedules.
How can anyone enjoy Thanksgiving if it involves a dead Mystia?

Is there any toohoo that can defeat Yuyuko Saigyouji? And I'm not talking about PCB Yuyuko with edgy quotes and flower patterns in her dress, hell I'm not even talking about IN Yuyuko with an endless gluttony and a ghost holding a lantern besides her. I'm talking about TD Yuyuko with a poorly desgined dress pattern and a menacing finger. I'm talking about not-having-a-reason-to-fight Yuyuko Saigyouji using her innate ability to control departed souls and the other OP ability which is 死を操る程度の能力. That one Yuyuko who uses Cherry Blossom Sign "Cherry Blossom Blizzard Hell" in the Overdrive form to enclose you and make you have a hard time in the very beginning of the game. The Yuyuko whose Stage 1 appearance has 4 Spell Cards and lack the defeated portrait at the end of the match. That's the Yuyuko Saigyouji, Ghost Princess of the Netherworld, Dreaming Ghost, Ghost of Flawless Immaculate Beauty, Enlightened Ghost that I'm talking about.

I thank you, bearer of wisdom, for sharing a method by which insults can be respectfully rebuffed. May your words propagate through the mouths of many, that still more may hear them, and be lead to a better path by them.

Reimu is preserving the status quo at all costs. Change is being stalled at any price. Change is the one universal constant though. Anything that can upset this status quo is a threat. Ergo, over time, the reprisals will just continue to grow more brutal to keep the ever-stronger winds of change from affecting the bubble.

So how long until Usami Sumireko gets wasted for upsetting the balance by handing out 3D printed guns in the village?

I have this funny paralell drawn in my head between GNU guns and the Gensokyo system being proprietary. I'd just like to interject for an eastern wonderland...

There is handling said Touhou MC so they still come off as themselves and not "some other person in a ______- costume"

And I mentioned Fell's tendency as I feel it sort of detracts from his otherwise solid writing. He's good enough not to need some gimmick.

>it reminded me of that other great noir story that I can't remember right now

That would be because he wrote that one too. SolusLunes = Rabbit.
