Since there seems to have been an influx of newcomers lately, and their actions and behaviour has started to grate on the regular visitors of this site, once again Anon has risen in /blue/.

So, in order to help inform the newcomers of present and future, this thread will be a place for general board etiquette and other miscellaneous information to help the population as a whole. I apologize if there's any seemingly 'important' information I leave out at first, since I'm typing this off the top of my head.

Important Information

1) Emoticons are discouraged. Be they :(, or >.>, or ^_^, or even the dreaded xD, they are not required, and you will only be scorned and mocked for using them. You are able to post without them (I should hope), so if you absolutely must convey your emotional state, do so with words.

2) This is an imageboard for voting on, discussing and chatting about Touhou and Touhou fanfiction. *Actions* are not required, and are looked down upon. The only implied actions occurring in imageboard posts should be limited solely to story narrative and other creative writing ventures. Like emoticons, you will be mocked.

3) Posts made in the story boards, and in story threads, should try to stay on topic. Discussion related to events of the story are fine, and chatter about various other facets of related material to the story is acceptable as per author's judgment. Prolonged shitstorms over things not related to the story at all are naturally not acceptable, and will result in post deletions at best, and temp bans at worst. No one wants to see posts between two or more anons bitching at each other over nothing.

3a) Sometimes, arguments over various actions within the story context can spark up due to conflicts in personal interests and how votes made to cater to a particular taste might oppose others. While they can be unavoidable, it's preferred to keep them at a minimum. Everyone has their own tastes, and surely they can clash at times when opposing groups have two differing views on what should happen, and these prolonged arguments can derail threads, and even cause the writers to lo

Ever had a great idea for a story that you weren't going to use yourself? In this thread you can share it with the world and see if anyone else thinks it's interesting. They can then write it or, at the very least, see if there's any interest for the concept/particular execution. In short, this exchange can help inspire others as well help see if there's demand for any particular kind of story.

Deadline for entries: September 16th at 00:01

Deadline for votes: October 1st, also at 00:01

If you need more time, request it in advance by at least an hour. Unless you get the entry in before I list the entries, it won't count.

Categories: SFW, NSFW and Newbie. However, be warned: if Newbie gets only one or two entries, it's getting lumped in with SFW for the sake of actually having something to compete against.

Now, I know I said I wasn't gonna start it, but that was out of respect for the contest itself. However, as nobody else is doing it, I suppose I have to. Sad, I know.

This contest is special, so I will not be dumping any of my glitter on it. There will be no theme, and there will be no special categories. Write what you want, but follow the rules from last year's contest on those I don't cover.

The only real deviation from the norm is that I intend to still give out prizes of free crappy art. Crapmissions, if you will. They will be bad, but I will put in more effort than you are likely to ask for. As such, please keep your requests reasonable, though if you really want something, don't be shy. I will try.

Youkai Academy was actually more or less a pilot I wrote in two sittings. I figured that I'd slap together what I could manage and end it at a satisfying moment to see how much interest it would draw.

It does get tiring to have three votes per update, so I figured I'd go for an easier story, in a style I'm more used to.

Still, I plan to start the story in earnest pretty much on the first of the month, though will post it well before the first and likely update it once or twice by then. It'll be in /other/, and I'll be using it for NaNoWriMo.

I also co-authored another entry, but I'll let my partner talk about it first.

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.

Yes, I know what you must be thinking, "Sona, why is the contest starting when the previous one only just started the voting phase?" Well, stop talking to yourself and listen up!

This isn't gonna be your typical contest! It'll be running year-long, and shall have no losers! While the general idea is New Year's resolutions, one can enter at any time. There are no rules, save that this one could technically be considered a writing contest. CYOAs, normal stories, you name it.

Basically, declare your resolutions here and try to keep them. I don't expect year-long participation, but so long as you never truly give up, no matter how you falter, you're the true winner!

As some of you might have noticed, the site has a new front page and the default style has been changed from photon to chernobyl on boards. This is to make the site more accessible to newcomers but you'll be able to change the style to something else, as always, from the drop down menu at the top of every page.

There's a few changes that I plan on making to the site, including adding better support for small screens such as those on tablets and phones. The front page already scales nicely but rehauling the dusty old board code is an undertaking that will probably take me a while. I'm prioritizing something else at the moment, which I think everyone will be happy about. Nothing as visually dramatic, before you complain, and I promise it'll be good.

I plan on tweaking the front page some more in the coming days, fixing a few spacing issues and padding. But if there's anything else that you want to suggest that needs improvement or tweaking, I guess this is the thread for you. I'll promise to listen and tell you why or why not I can or cannot do something.

I'm also using the trip I use for writing as opposed to the admin identity because honestly it's less of a hassle not having to log in every time to post.

I haven't touched site code or server software in that time. I've subscribed to a few boards now to see if it works for me, but it seems fine so far. Would appreciate others weighing in.

With all the very established threads and authors here on THP, sometimes it's hard for new blood to get their foot in the door. There's a lot of different boards, too, and it's easy for new stories to go unnoticed because of their location.

That said, this here is the thread for newbies to tell everyone about their story and why it's the best story ever and you should go read it!

Reimu Hakurei. That girl sure is an odd one, huh? Come see Ran Yakumo peel back the history behind Reimu, her spiritual training, and the catastrophic events that led to a decades-long gap between her and her predecessor.

Elementals? Since when do they get a spotlight? Well as it so happens this MC is an Elementalist. Witness the experiences of an Elementalist try and not only control her powers, but watch others unravel her dark past. Other characters include the four elemental spirits of Aringoth accompanying MC and how and why they joined her in the first place.

Looks like people forgot this was a thing. And no porn, too. Might as well pop this cherry, then.


You (yes, YOU) are a red(?)-blooded man of some description. You could be human, or maybe you're youkai. You might be a newbie, or you might be a pro. Either way, you're out for a bit of fun. The pull of the bright lights of the tengu soap street is too much to resist. A quick chat with the doorman at the Kiwi-no-Machiawasebasho is enough to get you past the entryway. Little do you know that that there's a surprise waiting for you. What will it take for you to enjoy yourself to the fullest? It's up to you to decide!

Hey y'all, Moral here with yet another waste of time thread in /gensokyo/. I've been working on a (rather hastily done) script to add a couple basic features to THP. Right now, it's only a proof of concept and I will not be releasing it at this time because... frankly, it's embarrassing to release such a piece of shit. However, I do plan on working on it at my own leisure, and it will be completed before I die of old age. I promise.

Some features already implemented:
1) Cute waifu watching you read your shitty fanfics.
2) (Poorly designed) Navigation bar that follows you around like a stalker. Can be minimized.
3) Quick reply box (currently unable to drag and move)
4) Reply boxes are all the same width so it looks more uniform. Also stops your fat waifu from blocking text.

Features to be added:
1) Real menus that can change waifus and their transparency instead of junk
2) Adding in a quick reply link to every post (might take some time to figure this out in the future)
3) Customize your CSS only using this script.
3a) UI to facilitate CSS customization

Current known bugs:

Also, any advice I give is worth jack shit because I don’t follow my own advice over half the time.

I used to like his quests on /tg/ when it was still Quest central. There were a few established series there before janitors went nuclear and told everyone to fuck off to /qst/ (which to this day has no quality control - an average shitpost here is better than an average quest there) and Anonkun that's now Fictionlive (which is for the most part on par with fanfiction.net's better "masterpieces", which is not saying much) such as MGNQ, Cyberpunk Idol Management Quest, Joker Quest, A.I. Quest, Shadow Quest and more. He did two quests on /tg/ and a one-shot on /qst/, if I'm correct, all of which were just fine.

Damn it, now I'm mad. Why did cuckchan have to kill off quests? Majority of them were very enjoyable to read and participate in. Awoo feels like something from that time, even if it's slow as fuck and even if it feels like something crucial's missing.

I'm still butthurt that /qst/ killed all the worthwhile quests. Maybe one day, /qst/ will be good, but that day sure isn't anytime soon.
