Thanks to Keine Kamishirasawa the Internet Archive, we are granted the access to an almost complete history log of our site. I thought of sharing this for the ones who are relatively new here, like me. Let's start, shall we?
Notice: all the backups before the address change have the page code not saved properly, aka with no formatting and css. Don't know why.


- Apparently, before being a Touhou only CYOA/discussion site, touhouproject.com was a place for sharing all kinds of doujin/anime material through torrent, with a Touhou section: http://web.archive.org/web/20070502184709/http://www.touhouproject.com/
- That went on until june of 2007, when the site disappeared (http://web.archive.org/web/20070623142517/http://www.touhouproject.com/) and was then put under construction (http://web.archive.org/web/20070921182022/http://www.touhouproject.com/).
- The site as we know it - kinda - saw the net's light on the 8th of january 2008, according to the admin's first message on the homepage: http://web.archive.org/web/20080112115311/http://www.touhouproject.com/. Interesting are the TouhouTube and Releases sections. Almost all them are saved, just go and browse around.
- The site went on during 2008 and 2009 (http://web.archive.org/web/20090803100351/http://www.touhouproject.com/) until middle august, when the site dies (http://web.archive.org/web/20090822050540/http://www.touhouproject.com/) and stays dead (http://web.archive.org/web/20090918084911/http://www.touhouproject.com/) at least at that address.

- THP revives on the 1st of september 2009, under our current domain (http://web.archive.org/web/20090908185556/http://www.touhou-project.com/). Also the infamous /coriander/ board is added during that period, the first of many addictions - http://web.archive.org/web/20090415000000*/http://www.touhou-project.com/coriander/. That's pretty much the site's general history.

There are a couple of very interesting threads in the post-revival /gensokyo/ section of the site (http://web.archive.org/web/20090930151449/http://www.touhou-project.com/gensokyo), in particular these ones:

- http://web.archive.org/web/20090923141810/http://www.touhou-project.com/gensokyo/res/806.html#852 and http://web.archive.org/web/20090907164223/http://www.touhou-project.com/gensokyo/res/1468.html give an explanation about why the domain switch happened.
- http://web.archive.org/web/20090907163000/http://www.touhou-project.com/gensokyo/res/932.html is a huge recap of all active writers/stories during that period.

The general timelines are here:
- Old domain: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.touhouproject.com/
- Current domain: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.touhou-project.com/

Thanks Keine Internet Archive. It was nice knowing this place's story. Probably part of you

You know what we need? A contest, of course! Christmas, snow-ins, snow days and all things that make winter wonderful and/or bleak and terrifying.

Rules are mostly the same as the yearly contest: deadline is 00:01 on the 1st of January, and you can make as many entries as you like. Anonymously, of course.

Also, don't be the guy that votes on their own stuff.

Anywho, categories are Porn, Newbie and Veteran. If you think yourself a newbie, novice, or just generally aren't confident in your writing, go write there. It's a contest, so don't be afraid to write, even if you're not the best.

Characters can be whoever! Doesn't matter, really. Just make sure it's taking place in winter, more or less. I'm mainly doing this to drum up more activity on the site. Expect more contests to come, though the next one will be less short notice.

Thread links coming shortly!

>>No. 14573
I wrote the newbie entry. I've only written one other story on this site, and it was for the last contest. Once again I ended up writing something at the very end, rushing to get it done. I wasn't planning on writing anything for this contest, but I wanted there to be at least one story in the newbie category. If I knew I would get one more vote than the other stories I probably would have spent more than a minute thinking of a title. I thought up the idea for a story like this a while ago when I was sick, after I finished reading curiosities of lotus asia. Next time I write something I'll put more thought and effort into it. Still, this was fun.

I wrote Winter's Warmth. My goal was to create a work that perfectly encapsulated certain feelings, so I'm glad that the execution of that worked out for most of you. I don't mind that it's a little predictable. Thank you all for your feedback, and congratulations to everyone who wrote for the contest! You're all winners to me.

It doesn't feel like it's been a year, but it's August once again. And, since no one else has made any mention of it, I suppose I'll get the ball rolling in starting this year's annual contest!

As usual, EVERYTHING MUST BE SUBMITTED ANONYMOUSLY. Breaking this rule WILL result in disqualification. The deadline is the 16th of September, 23:59 GMT, AKA site time, because I'm not seeing much reason to break from tradition here. Submissions after the deadline will be disqualified.

There's a two-post limit per entry, as usual. They must be obviously connected with each other, preferably with in-thread links.

After the last annual contest's newbie turnout of nil, I'm also trimming categories down to just Regular and Lewd. However, because at least one chucklefuck always makes comedy porn, I'm also instituting the bonus Best Shitpost Award, because if people are going to write joke lewds they might as well be recognized for it.

So, for example, votes would go like:

REGULAR STORY: [X] EXAMPLE NAME
LEWD STORY: [X] EXAMPLE NAME THE SECOND
BEST SHITPOST: [X] EXAMPLE NAME, THE SHITPOSTENING

Speaking of, voting will last until the 23rd of September, 23:59 GMT. Everyone will get a vote in both regular and smut categories, plus the optional BEST SHITPOST vote in case you feel like throwing it in. If you don't wanna, or if there aren't any shitpost entries, feel free to ignore it.

Hi there!
So I know that there are tons of fan-made spin offs of various genres of the Touhou Project, which of course have their own OCs, but I was wondering which of them are the most famous?

After all, there's enough fan-art and remixes for Mitori that she kind of feels almost nearly canon-ish, I feel. She's even got a wiki page, so who else is up there?
>>No. 14408
There's Miko (Hakurei) from the MUGEN games. That's about all I know about. I barely can keep with the canon characters and their personalities, so I don't really pay attention to OCs.
>>No. 14409
There are a few at https://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Fan-made_characters.

... I don't think I've ever heard of any of them before today. Except Meimu, and that only via Touhou Nekokayou.
>>No. 14421
>>14409
most don't have much lasting impact, though it doesn't help that many seem to palette swaps of existing characters.

The "Previous gen Hakurei" mentioned in >>14408 has more of an impact among fans for having a more unique design compared to most.

Post it on whichever board is thematically appropriate, then; i.e., /youkai/ if it's the mountain, /forest/ if it's the forest, etc. I mean, you could post it in /th/ as a catch-all if you're not focusing on anything in particular, but it's already a clusterfuck, so you might take that into consideration.

A lot of you are probably aware of National Novel Writing Month, and the attempts here to write daily updates for the month of November. However, stories on THP have changed over the years in ways that make daily updates almost impossible: many of us have moved away from silly VN-inspired stories towards more serious stories with long-term arcs and goals, complicated relationships, and altogether higher-effort plots and characterizations.

This is good! Good stories are good, and having written a few well-received stories here myself I appreciate the push towards quality. But shitty, dashed-out, in-jokey stories are the glue that holds us together as we wait for those long-term stories to update. They are the bread and turnips that sustain us until the Sunday poule au pot.

Therefore, I propose a Carnival for the month of November. In its original meaning, Carnival is a Christian holiday before the fasting and self-denial of Lent. It is a day where social order is upended: behind festive masks to hide one's identity, priests and holy men are publicly mocked, wives give orders to their husbands, and everybody gets absolutely shitfaced.

For the month of November, I propose to you a chance to indulge yourselves. I wish to see us don our masks, hide our identity, and become fools. We will intoxicate ourselves on the soma of obscure references, joke updates, and bad ends. Our standards, our pride, our interpretations, we must cast these mortal things aside for the betterment of both the site and ourselves.

THE RULES:

The rules are simple. On November 1st*, start a new story on whichever board you please. Use a new name, preferably something with 'mask' in the title, and include a link to the carnival thread somewhere in your first couple posts. But most of all, enjoy it! Be wild and do something you've always wanted to do! Write inanity, write insanity, write profanity, you can even write Sean Hannity.

All stories that managed daily updates throughout the month of November will be qualified to be crowned the King or Queen of Carnival, which will be decided by a week-long voting period held in this thread starting Decemb

Does THP have it's own Booru for the original art you guys do here?

Then again I'm a Linux guy and I'm using the libre icedtea-web plugin instead of oracle's rubbish. Asks for permission but works after I give it the go ahead. It'd probably be better to eventually switch over to html5 in-built canvas but that's unlikely to be something I'd do anytime soon since I've never read the spec and there's more pressing site changes to be done.

As for a draw thread elsewhere? Do one here if you want, not a problem. Maybe other people will contribute too. We don't have a lot of artists so no need to have a booru or whatever, but theoretically that's easy to set up if we ever got a massive influx of artists.
