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.

We've been without one of these for almost ten months. Time to revive the tradition!

What have you been reading lately? What do you recommend to your fellow THPers?

There aren't any stories like that. Gods are a very underrepresented minority deserving of our protection.

Keymaster's Tengu of (Mis)Fortune in /youkai/ has Hina and the Aki sisters team up to gather more faith as a significant plot point. Its the sequel to Pleasant Meadows in /others/, which is the sequel to Being Meiling in /sdm/, neither of which have much to do with Gods doing real God things. They are all good stories though.
>> No. 15374

That depends on how you define 'real god things'.

If we're talking like "being Greek pantheon level douches", then technically there's some of that at the tail end of The Game.

Other than that, can't say much of anything sticks out. Might be time to exercise the old Blue Ocean Strategy, if you know what I mean.

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.

Tabitha is the MC of doll's quest. She wasent a fairy, but did end up marrying a fairy. Pretty sure her fairy wife also knocked her up.

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.

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.

Thank you very much. I'm glad to be able to communicate. But I'm terribly sorry, it's because of the network control rule in our side, it has a little bit strict. So I think there's only a small number of people coming.

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.

I resolve to post more stories on THP, beginning with continuing my (scrapped) short story posted here already of DCUP.

I want to at least get a good chunk into that before digging into something else.
>> No. 15329
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.

>>15329

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!

Overall, I felt I did well on my vague resolution to do contests. Time to start the 2018 thread, even if it's late. Just feel horrible, so ended up sleeping a lot. Sorry about that.

Good job on 1.5/4 of your resolutions!

I'm sure that those pictures made the author's days, so while not a success, you succeeded in something unrelated. Success is nice in any form.

If >>15310 is who I presume they are, then I can confirm first-hand you are absolutely right. Caused me quite a bit of embarrassment by making me grin foolishly at my phone on a crowded train in one instance, but still made my day.

The contest will run from November 1st at 00:01 to December 1st at 00:01. There will also be no extensions, so don't try.

The rules for participation are simple: Link to your story here, and link back to this thread from your story. I will admit that linking to it in your story is more to spread the word, but still. There is no restriction on names, as that would exempt pre-existing stories. I felt that this encourages more to write, as forced anonymity would effectively force one to interrupt their usual writing, defeating my entire hope for this contest.

It's that time again, folks! Now, I'm sure a couple of you have no idea what the subject of the contest is, but it's fairly simple: you write, and you write a lot. You write until you can't write anymore, and then you keep writing at that pace every day for a month. This month is the National Novel Writing Month, where you typically attempt to write a novel from scratch within a month's time.

The difficulty of translating the celebration to the site is why I decided to do this in a very particular way, as stated above.

Platinum: The story is freshly made, and 50k words or more by the end of the month; the standard combination.

Gold: The story is either 30 updates long or 30k words total.

Silver: The story is either 20 updates long or 20k words total.

Bronze: The story is either 10 updates long or 10k words total.

… Huh.

That’s the trick, isn’t it? To make it seem like you’re doing more than you are. Well, I probably could have hit that 30k if I hadn’t run into a spat of bad weather that absolutely incapacitated my brain for almost a full week. So yeah.
>Now, anyone I missed?
I don’t think there is, old boy. See you in a few months with the prizes. I don’t really feel my own entry was entirely fair, so I’ll happily cede my almost-silver-and-a-half-but-not-quite-there to the next best result.

Well, actually, I was planning to give prizes out a bit more generously than just the two top winners. I just need time to consider how to go about it, and first need to make good on some things long overdue. ...Well, longer anyways.
