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.
See >>10975 and >>11677 for previous ideas that were shared.

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.

>Or ignore me.
Saging a post that's actual feedback might accidentally accomplish just that!

>Also gotta learn how not to sound like an ungrateful bastard
It didn't really come off as that, just a bit weird. I was a little worried that I came off a little too aloof and not caring (or even arrogant!) as text isn't the best for reading other people's emotions or even explaining one's actual attitude.

>What I meant to say is I would have made a "Disable backlinks"
Yeah, would rather have people turn things 'on' rather than 'off'. But I'll think about that as I add more features I have planned. What's probably best in regards to settings and options that are exposed isn't quite set in stone. Though I want to be consistent and pain-free as possible for users.

>More like privacy on a shared computer. Basically I use incognito mode, or whatever it is they call it in your browser of choice.
Sure, gotcha. Importing/exporting settings might help you there when I get that done.

>telling a browser to scale one image, wait for another to load, and then replace the old one with the new one would require more work, not less.
I can't really speak for the inner workings of a browser but from my perspective the current code is cleaner. As the old code created a special new part of the page where then it would have a 'new' image inserted which would then be loaded. There is no longer those extra bits in every post and instead it outright replaces the thumbnail with the full image according to some data it scrapes (which it also scrapped for the previous method, albeit in a different format). Why it looks blown up is probably due to how the individual browsers cache information while an asynchronous request is being processed. A shit explanation, I know, but I hope it's clear enough to more o

That fwooshing sound you're hearing is technical jargon giving me a new hairdo as it sails overhead. Thanks for the effort though.

All I want is my progressive JPEGs (and the other pics) to actually be, well, progressive. Going from blocky to blurry to loli over five minutes is a lot less boring then HOLY SHIT I NEED GLASSES ... HOLY SHIT I STILL NEED GLASSES ... MAYBE I SHOULD GO MAKE SOME oh hi Koishi.

Laugh at Malor if you will - actually, laugh at him regardless - but this applies to almost all writers on this site, including future ones, if any. This is what will happen.

And be wary of those who lie to themselves on daily basis, justifying it with excuses like "It's not serious", "I'm funposting", "It's all a joke" and "It doesn't matter anyway". If all those things are true, they are calling themselves another piece of irrelevant biomass that is set to die without expecting to accomplish anything of note in a really roundabout way. There are many like this. They have mostly given up. Will you?

I originally wrote this to encourage more people to write. Maybe it'll come off as a shitpost, sure, but hey, if it isn't helpful at least it'll be fun to read (or that's what I hope). Of course, it was also to motivate myself but is that really a bad thing? I had a whole myriad of reasons not to update the past year but those are just excuses and I won't bring them to light here. Is this superficial? I don't know, maybe to you it is. Is this superficial to me? Heck no. I like this thing, whatever it is.

>During all this, instead of WRITING MORE, IT'S WHAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO DO, he makes a long and elaborate shitpost disguised as a beginner's guide.
If you truly think that, then I'm sorry. I didn't do my job well enough if you thought that this was just some shitpost. I should have done my due diligence and be thorough with my points. I only brushed over them but if anybody had an opinion, I could respond to them about it. That's what I like about this guide, if you can even call it that. We can talk about it and my opinions are my opinions and yours are yours. Nothing's set in stone because I'm just blabbing about my own experiences and thoughts.

>There's no point in getting seriously invested in something like this, right? No point in caring about things like those at all, is there? It's all nothing serious, rite, another thing to put in a box to do tomorrow, maybe the day after? The day after the day after? Ooh, maybe you have work on this day, maybe you've got sick. Maybe there's people that got together to play games, it'd be a waste not to join in instead of writing, that makes sense, right? Yeah, you just, you'll just make sure to update tomorrow, right?
THP (myself included) loves to joke about this a lot. Yep, I was and will always be a big offender of this. But I'm human too. Spare me some leeway, yeah? But not too much. I'll take advantage of it. Though, it's not like I don't car

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.

‘Plot-relevant’ might be a bit of a stretch, but fairies are always relevant in Scarlet Tycoon. The buildup to the next bit of story seems to imply that they’re extra relevant.

Go re-read Doll's Quest. I'll wait right here; you won't be gone long.

Google tells me the only two pages containing "tabitha" on THP are Fallout Gensokyo threads. So if she's from another story, it ain't on here.

Sick, so not in the mood for lengthy explanations. Sorry.

Anyways, as the previous year is over, I suppose I need to start the next with a "dammit not another contest".

Declare your resolution and keep to it as best you can. That's the name of the game. Sorry about being so late on starting it, but I woke up at the server's midnight, making me late by default.

Super late, but my New Year's Resolution is to finally start writing here. I have a couple of ideas since a while but I've always postponed starting them.
I'll do it this time. For sure.
>> No. 15330
Now that I'm starting to feel less contagious, I suppose it's time I make my own resolutions.

1: I want to finish No Such Thing as Ghosts.
2: I want to make good on the prizes for my recent contests. I've been far too lazy, and it's unacceptable, no matter what state my head was in overall.
3: I want to continue Eastern Tale and Dark Tidings after I finish NSTaG.
4: I want to start making contests again. I will put this on hold till I have doled out prizes for the last two, however.


I look forward to seeing what you write! I hope to see you succeed in your desire! It's a lot of work, but never a dull moment!

Well, unless you refresh every 5 minutes waiting for votes. But that is to be expected if you do that.

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!
