It hit it's auto sage limit, so here's a new thread!
 [View thread]
If a story doesn't start in Gensokyo and takes a while to get there, what board would it go in? /th/ or /others/?
>>19010
>>19010
Either is fine.

/th/ is moreso X in gensokyo

While /others/ is more gensokyo in X

These are of course, more guidelines than rules, so go with your best judgement, both are crowded anyway.
>>19010
I'd say it'd depend on what area/faction it's featuring, though if there isn't any particular featured area/faction, the advice >>19013 would suffice.

Because the current one has hit autosage, and I like making the threads.

Stories need more Kokoro. And the ones from TH14 (especially Sekibanki) but more Kokoro. Well? Get to it, then.

Silly anon, of course he won't do that. Then we could play it and form our own opinions on whether its good or not instead of taking his word for it.

So, I made a survey asking various things related to the site. You can find it at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1TVhOsjYht499qsGhdHPRIP6xxi1veEtU7V-MmEyaK7c/viewform


What I hope to achieve with this thread is to get the link up in a site wide announcement with the blessing of a moderator, otherwise it will one: not reach enough people to be statistically significant and two: be obviously skewed towards people who visit /blue/.

The stated goals of the survey are:
1. Having concrete numbers would theoretically help us come up with a plan in our ongoing effort to bring in new readers.
2. Giving people who would otherwise never visit a meta thread in /blue/ a chance for input in the site.
3. Knowing for the sake of knowing. Aren't you curious? I sure am.

I think that, like you said, the discussion itself is meaningless: everyone has their own definition of 'art' and I couldn't care less about labels.
Per example, I heard that art is done for its own sake and if its creator is worrying about popularity, then he's more of a performer than an artist.
I missed the survey but I like this site.
>>18580
Stick around, keep voting, and maybe even try writing.
Or come on IRC. It forms a connection to the site that makes it harder to break away.

Never before in my life have I thought my laziness would make two completely unrelated people fight.

Maybe I should look into becoming the second Hitler. Or just leave THP for another few months because fuck this shit.

Man.
Don't even joke about that shit.

You haven't felt true pain until you've peed blood arr day everyday for a week. And trying to hold it in only makes it worse, because it'll hurt much more when it, inevitably, inexorably, goes out.

Since it seems like we need yet another one!

Previous one: >>16035
I'm not sure why you'd want to see the ones before that one.

Don't be afraid to ask if you're unsure about something. There's nothing worse than making a stupid mistake because you didn't bother to ask about it.

>>18482
I feel you. You could even say I sympathise with you. I do agree it is the writer’s own prerogative to choose one type of narration over another. But, still, for pure technicalities’ sake, TPP offers the most mechanical freedoms. The freedom to switch at will, the freedom to provide insight into characters other than the protagonist, the freedom to make remarks or observations which would otherwise have never been made by the protagonist, the freedom to refer to Geralt as “the Witcher,” further cementing the subconscious idea of his professionalism and devotion to his job (and maybe even the quality of him being unique thanks to that “the”), the freedom to appear a smug-ass faux-expert on writing on the internet...

... Ahem. Yes. At any rate, there isn’t one universal agreement on which type of narrator is the best in all situations, so your best bet would be to try out everything and decide which works the best for your particular circumstances. Experiment. Skill comes from experience – and the best sort comes from your own.
Does anyone have that back-up of "Retrospective and Astronomical Narraration"

I need it because reasons
>>18484
Get on the IRC and ask. There are a few people who have a copy of everything and will likely give it to you.

Where we talk about your opinion of advertising THP on other websites, if we even want more people on THP or not, and if there are specific sites we don't want to draw more people from.

As well as all other relevant and similar questions.

Here's you go.

Thanks. I read the whole thread.

Well, dang. All that discussion and nothing came of it? Some of the things in that thread looked really promising...

Also the thread derailed so gradually that I forgot what the topic was originally about.
>>18388
Discussion just makes ideas; actually executing them is another matter.

Waifu-fags get in, I want I to know,
Which nigger can rap best about his touhou—
See which girl get the best rhymes to flow.
Originality is key; fuckin rule of this show.
No taken memes or shit from radio.
No quid pro quo. Nigger, make yo' own.
Takin' a beat from a pro, is that apropos?
I don't give a shit; use some wit though.
Complex rhymes impress crowds the most,
Read up poetry theory if yo' not in the know.
You gonna need a trip to be postin' back.
But go ahead and push a rhyme on the stack.
Thread's open till the 16th to post a run.
We vote then for the faggot who won.

What’s this garbage; you askin’ where the charm is?

I ain’t no foo’, but lemme tell you too,
Some dude’ll school you like you ain’t been to college.
Am I that bro? Hell no; my flow’s slow, yo, but he’s comin’,
He’s gunnin’,
Send you runnin’ back a-cryin’ like you dyin’ in the street.
So hug your girl, kiss them curls, like she’s all you got in the world,
But it don’t make no diff if yo’ rap be stiff, an’ I’m sure you ain’t got the time,
Ain’t got the mind to jump off that ledge, rap wit’ the best and ace that test.
Love your life.
Love your wife.
All you’ll get is strife.
You wanna go? Show that Touhou fo’ sho’?
Get in line.

Bah, not enough entries to bother doing a full vote.

Nantucket wins because it's still funny.

Because I'm angry that PC-98 doesn't get enough attention.

And because someone mentioned the lack of this thread again, and I missed it.

>ITT edgy things you've done on this site.

I once insulted a writefag in his own story and deleted the post two seconds later.

I know, I'm so edgy I cut garlics with my breath.
>>17773
I'm a cut above you, I'm afraid: I thrice predicted a story twist just before it happened: nobody got my points. Guess I'm sharper than the average slice-of-life reader.
>>17902
/blue/ has enough puns already, so cut it out.

This thread is for some of our authors (and readers) who have spare time from their busy social lives and mental meltdowns to give writing advice. We're giving vague hints, but we're not writing a story for you. Come ask for advice if you don't know how to write something, but we can't help if it's too specific. In such cases, go discuss with your readers.

It greatly speeds up the brainstorming process, so, yes, it helps a lot. At the very least it lets you work out what you need to do, what your goals are, etc. so when you DO have time, you can spend it all writing your update instead of getting ready to write your update.

Actually. YAF. Do it. And post pics as proof.
