I'm looking to change THP's favicon because it's too low res. As I'm terrible at this sort of thing, I'm outsourcing to the community. The image needs to fulfill the following criteria:
  • Either original content by you or an existing touhou-related image
  • Must be a square image of at least 400x400 (I'll handle all the final downscaling and formats)
  • PNG or SVG format preferred but not necessary
  • If the image needs a transparent background, please do that before uploading
  • Must look at decent at 16x16 and good at 32x32,48x48 and higher

Please upload images in this thread. I'd prefer a nice original image but since I know we don't really have many artists, a cropped image by someone else is fine too.

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.

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:

Whoa, surprise, this thing ain't dead.

I've been meaning to get around to this sooner, but you know me: slow as fuck.

Changes:
1) Navigation bar overhaul. It inherits properties from its current CSS style instead of being monochromatic and ugly. It can also be optionally fixed, meaning you don't have to scroll back to the top of the page to access all that.
2) Updated quick reply to include the update checkbox. I'm in the process of testing it out as we speak, so forgive me if I post this as an update on the frontpage. Preview currently is useless, sadly.
3) Toggles. You can toggle hiding/showing your waifu. Same with the quick reply. Basically, it's just a QoL change.

Other stuff to be added soon.
>>No. 15594
>>15593
Some additional comments:
Update does indeed work, and god damn it just as I posted about all the previous bugs being worked out, the .webm bug decided to show up again.
>(Unable to reproduce) Once, a .webm file displayed its garbage information after it was uploaded.
But yeah, aside from that, the script's nearing release.

Yyyyep. Seems I'll be your host again this year. If anyone has wondered where other contests and the prizes of the contests past are, well... it's been a bit of a rough year on my health.

Potentially concerning matters aside, it's that time again! It's time to dance and write and laugh and maybe read, too!

The entry period shall be 2 weeks in length, running from 8/13/18 to 8/27/18. Voting shall likewise run for two weeks, running from 8/27/18 to 9/10/18.

As per usual, the subject matter is up to you. The categories will be as followed: General, Newbie and Lewd.

I exclude lewd newbies on the grounds of lewds being strapped for participants as it stands. Winning a contest of one isn't exactly winning at all.

I'll offer crappy art prizes IOUs for the three winners, but I have other prizes I still need to dole out first and foremost, not to mention that I need to get back in the drawing mood. I just got over another illness or something and now my eyes have been strained for going on a week, which kinda really sucks in general. I think I've had almost 3 months of feeling like crap thus far this year. And it was only in 3 chunks. Kiiiinda sucks.

> literary masterpiece of our generation

I'm sorry officer Kotohime, but I think you may have the wrong author. I'm afraid Keymaster hasn't been seen around these parts in years.

> Kosuzu

I... can't be overly specific without spoilers, but one should not wish to read this story for Kosuzu. Just as, say, one should not wish to read Tenshi is in This Story for Tenshi.

It is about her, though, and there is a great deal of Marisa, if you happen to be that way inclined. Though strictly speaking not all of Marisa makes an appearance. Make of that what you will.

I'm reliably informed that objectively awful cookie-cutter umbrella stories are in greater demand, though, so I may attempt to bake some more of those first, if my muse gives me any choice in the matter. Which, of late, it has not.

I feel like the Unbrella Advocates are just a very vocal minority. What the educated masses really want is a waifu wars story.

We should do a strawpoll on what type of story people around here would be interested in reading/voting in.
>>No. 15567

I already did that, and what my readers wanted was MOAR UMBRELLA YOU LAZY FAGET, with Shanghaijinx if that wasn't available.

There were two waifu wars options. I even put "waifu wars" in the titles.

Then again, anyone who reads my writing has shit taste by definition. And lots of patience OH GODS WHY AM I SO SLOW AAAAAAAAAAAAA-

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

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 want to at least get a good chunk into that before digging into something else.

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!

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.

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.

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.
