Alright, since evidently none of you numbskulls are going to do it, I guess I'll do it after all.

Second verse, same as the first. Update, discuss, do whatever the fuck you need to in order to make some activity on this site every day during NaNoWriMo. That includes bumping this thread. See >>15829 if you're confused about any of this.

Start date is 01 March, ending on 31 March. Get ready to stop jacking off and start contributing, assholes.

Please don't make Okuu sad.

Best day of the month because it's both divisible by five and a square.

Six more days left of the Nano-Reimu.
day twenty six whatever

Continuation of >>13959

In short, use this thread to report any issues with the site, provide general feedback or suggestions.

Since the last thread there have been a lot of changes made to THP including new features (eg in the settings menu) and to the story list among other things. I'm too lazy to provide patch notes for every update but things change regularly. Feel free to ask questions related to that as well if you have any.

>Hovered spoiler text is now unreadable gray-on-black instead of white on black. Can't seem to change it?
It is the same color as the main font color.
>Margins/padding around post text has doubled
It hasn't. You're confusing padding in posts with margins in the message. They have different effects.
>In archived threads the extra padding is absolutely ridiculous
This is an oversight that I'll fix soon.
>Photon preset's post borders are now pure white, were #CCCCCC
You're correct and I'll make the preset reflect that.
>At some point the font changed from serif to sans
Yes, last year. Only some themes had different fonts and parts of the site like the front page never had serifs. Fonts were made uniform across the site.

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.

Even just the sentiment is (almost) enough.

We should really make a list of underrepresented 2hus and whinge more about their plight in an attempt to get others to write them.

>U wot?

Last year talking was had about Nanowrimo participation and some folks had to say "Updating every day for a month, during THIS time of year? No can do!" I wondered then, what about during another time of year? What about March????

It's valid: winter is a horrible time especially for working people. So, why not a less busier time? And so, Nanowrimo 2019. (2). March starts in about a week. Join, nerd.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it is to

a) write at least 30 updates in March
or
b) write at least 30,000 words by the end of March

You don't actually have to write every day, and can accomplish b) by dumping 30k words on March 31st. It's an OR statement so no you don't have to do both. Do as you will, what's important is that you DO IT

This is a travesty. The Cabal has been talking away here, and it’s become obvious that we will decidedly not be having a NaNoWriMo this year. Why? Because reasons.

Is this really how we want things to end up? I, for one, do not relish the idea of inertia killing off contests, one of my favourite THP institutions.

However, before I descend into ranting and get a couple of particular individuals on my case, I will admit that “timing” and “circumstances” can and do make things hard on people. Asking you guys to jump onto a full-fledged contest when things are in this state is only asking for disappointment, too. So, what do we do? Well, that’s why I’m dropping this notice a half-month in advance.

What are you on about?

Look, we haven’t had any contests this year, and it looks likely at this rate that we won’t if nobody steps up and organises one. Since it doesn’t look like anyone’s going to do that, I’ve had to jump off of my lazy ass to make it happen.

That’s why I, a shitass anon and failed writer, am bringing you…

A.T.O.M.

What.

When I posted the OP, I was pretty convinced that there wouldn't be anything happening. I had doubts anyone would even notice this thing for more than a second.

So, did we win? I don't really know. Things were reasonably active, mostly on account of the actual NaNoWriMo happening, but that tells me nothing. Would any of that have happened if NaNoWriMo hadn't gone on as usual? I have some doubts. Still, activity is activity, and activity in and of itself is good. Let's just call it a job well done.

For my part, I'd like to apologise twice: once for constantly forgetting to bump the thread, and once more for getting involved in NaNoWriMo and falling through. I know no one particularly cares, but it's personally disappointing to me. Commitments are seriously hard to live up to.

On another note, I'd like to think that this little stunt has had a hand in bringing folks onto the Discord. Before this started, there were something like sixty or seventy of us total, and now we're over a hundred. Some of you went to lurking immediately, and that's to be expected, I guess. For those of you who continue to be active, pat yourselves on the back. You may not see it this way, but you're doing your part to keep a community as vibrant as possible. It'd still be better if folks wrote, voted, and generally did more on the site, though.

Anyway, thanks for tolerating my cheap little joke. There may be a repeat, or there could just as well not. I'd be glad if someone were to take over for me, but I'm of no illusion of that happening. I guess we'll just have to see next year.

Maybe?

P.S. Okuu is doing fine.

P.P.S. Fortune Teller did nothing wrong.

FUCK YOU. DON’T TELL ME WHAT TO DO.

Yeah, that’s right, fuckheads, we are having a Nana Write More, and it’s gonna be fucking incredible.

“Whoa,” you say. “I thought we weren’t going to have it?”

Are you deaf? Because you heard fucking wrong. Who the hell said that? The ‘Cabal’? I AM THE CABAL YOU PEASANTS. BOW TO ME AND please participate in Nanowrimo please please please I don’t want to be the only one participating.

“Wait. Moral, you can barely fucking update anything!”

To that, invisible talking voice, I reply: That’s what they say every year, but I’ve completed Nanowrimo twice now. I don’t know if I can make it a third time, but god damn it, I’ll try.

Fuck off, I had a perfectly fine excuse.

I couldn't actually come up with anything to fulfill the request I claimed orz
>>15941
That's still no excuse. Why would you claim a request if you had no ideas on how to fulfill it in the first place?
Some personal stuff happened in my life two thirds into the month and as such, this project fell by the wayside. Still, I managed to write 20k at least, and while that wasn't the goal, I am happy with it. Nanowrimo was a good motivator.

The next step for me is to edit and polish these 20k words a bit more, now that I don't have a deadline, and then post them.

Congrats to all who hit their goals!

An Addendum to Motivation
_______________________________________

This isn't a lot of content, but I feel like I should add to this segment where I stated: "Now, this might sound a little weird to say in the motivation section of all places, but with proper routine and regimen, you don’t even need motivation to keep writing."

Oh past me, you are right, but you are also so very wrong. To get words onto paper, I believe that you need both motivation and discipline. Discipline is the greatest supplement to motivation, or something like that. Without motivation, all you'll get are forced, empty words. And without discipline... well, you'll get me. So if you have the motivation, don't be lazy and especially don't be me. Be disciplined.

I was pretty annoyed by the fact that Cthulhu's THP downloader wasn't available anymore, so I made another one. Thought some of you would like it.

This one won't go down until Github gives up the ghost, since it's not hosted on my own site.

Instructions: download the .exe to some convenient location, the run it.

Get it from here: https://github.com/Anonark/THP2Epub/releases

Virustotal: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/904fdc963c97bc606328640b9a61a48ed935bb1f848f9bf185fe11acfe884535/detection

Thanks to the kind people over at IRC.

Don't think that double click thing works. No thread number pops up after.
Nevermind, you can still use the thing but you have to copy paste the thread number. Just glad it works.

A BOTTLE OF WINE NANOWRIMO

So Nanowrimo’s approaching in two weeks. Know what that means? Yeah, you guessed it. A bunch of broken promises. Starting November, I’m pushing all you writers out there to do thirty updates in November. No, I’m not telling you that you HAVE to do one a day because I know shit happens. Your internet died for a day? Write two updates the next day. No big deal.

If you decide to write thirty updates in one day, I’m going to find out where you live and personally drown you in a kiddie pool.

Anyway. Rules are simple. Thirty updates before November ends—and no, I’m not going to give a fuck about timezones. inb4 muh 12 hour extension. They can be shorts, updates for a current story, updates for a new story—all are fine. But if you’re going to do multiple stories, remember to link them here. It’s going to be hell for record-keeping if you don’t.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE.

“You mean there’s more to Nanowrimo than thirty days of suffering?”

Sure. >>15722 is progressing, but slower than I'd hoped. I still intend to write it, and I figured there was no harm in doing it slowly if it wasn't going to get done at all.

If someone else wants to grab it from me, though, feel free. I imagine it's still a month or two away... and it's me, so if a real writer took it it would probably end up being a better story.
>>15685
hmm yes, yes, I could do this.

perhaps something to write while I am secluded from the world.

Please, feel free. If we end up with 2 on accident, that won't be a bad thing.

>>/blue/23156 brought up a pretty good idea, so let's give it a go and see how it works out.

This is the thread for all writers who want critique (despite the title, yes, real critique) hurled their way based off of their posted work. Put your name on, link your story, and wait for anon to roast. Easy peasy.

And since it'd be kind of silly to start off a thread without, y'know, contributing to its premise, I'll go ahead and offer my own work up for roasting. Sure, it's dead, but go ahead and roast away anyway: >>/youkai/28957

Ah, my bad for assuming that a reply made to a thread would be by someone who actually knew what its subject was about.

As for the other stuff, you're straight out misunderstanding what feedback is. Nearly every area of human activity (jobs, education, art) has feedback from peers as a normal part of the process. It has nothing to do with confidence. To close oneself off to opportunities to hear perspectives and alternatives they might have not otherwise contemplated is just stupid. Asking for critique isn't the same as admitting that you're doing a poor job nor is it born out of feelings of inferiority. In fact, being confident about yourself helps as having a third party point out things makes you hone arguments as to why you do the things you do and what it truly is you intend to achieve.

I may have been calling you out on being a tool when I thought that you knew what this process was about and what we were trying to accomplish. Now I just pity you: you're not confident, you're arrogant. If you ever do fuck up when writing, you'll have no one to blame but yourself even when it may have been otherwise avoided.

And purely because that goes from shortest to longest. Teruyo did remind me that people on this site rarely say anything in the first place. I've already gotten unsolicited criticism on 3/4 of those and again, to be clear, I was not "tolerant" of that, I loved that. If you or anyone else lurking hate or love any of these stories you can tell me here or in any of those threads.
