Since people have been wondering where to post UFO and 10D stories, I've been thinking about updating the board titles to be more inclusive, and/or listing all of the settings the board should cover in the subtitle.

/eientei/ - Eientei & Lunar Capital
/forest/ - Forest of Magic & Flower Fields
/border/ - Hakurei Border & Points Beyond (including Hakugyokurou, Higan, etc. - maybe "& Afterlife"?)
/shrine/ - Hakurei Shrine & Human Village (including Myouren Temple)
/sdm/ - Scarlet Devil Mansion & Misty Lake
/youkai/ - Youkai Mountain & Heaven
/underground/ - Underground & Makai

Something like that. And maybe a better title for /others/ to make it clear that it's for alternate universe/reinterpretation kind of stuff. What do you guys think?

No. 7796
Sounds good to me. I prefer "& Afterlife" to "& Points Beyond".
No. 7797
Other than the fact the makai stories I know of are in /border/, it's a great idea.
No. 7798
Yeah, I was thinking about going with the angle that /border/ includes the realms that are technically outside of (but connected to) Gensokyo, so that would cover the afterlife and Makai. That seems like a lot for one board to cover, though, and it leaves /underground/ as the only board covering a single area.

Also, we wouldn't be forcing stories to move or anything, this is just to make it easier to decide where to write.
No. 7799
Nice picture.
Also, how can I move a story?

You could probably just wait until a thread limit and post the link to the new thread in the new board once you've hit it.

What about /th/?
No. 7810

/th/ is /th/. General. Everywhere.
No. 7811
You forgot to mention the whole "Not exactly the best place to post a CYOA" part.

I'm fine with the new names, and there's really nothing I could add to be of any value, but cant. However, Eientei should obviously involve the Bamboo forest.
No. 7815
Huh, I thought /border/ was pseudo-/th/ with a larger emphasis on locations near the border or the Outside World. Then again, I haven't seen many stories focusing on Higan and Hakugyokurou as locations for major plot development.

>with a larger emphasis on locations near the border
Mayohiga is part of /border/, but what else is there? The Hakurei Shrine already has its own board.

>or the Outside World
That would be included. The longest-running story focusing on Mary and Renko is already on /border/.

>Then again, I haven't seen many stories focusing on Higan and Hakugyokurou as locations for major plot development.
Hakugyokurou LA, Kaleidoscope Midnight, Days in Eden. All of them on /border/.

We need new banners now.

All hail the overlord.

I can post some banners later if the admins are interested.

Why's that exactly?
No. 7822
Go look through the latest two pages of /th/, read every thread from the start to end, and tell me how good most of these threads are. I'll give you a hint, not too many. Of course, This is just, like, my opinion, man.
No. 7825
>Do the Right Thing
>Fleet Fox
>Fallout Gensokyo

Even still I'm not really seeing your point. Unless you're suggesting that the rank stench of whatever threads you dislike will fester and consume all that surrounds it.
No. 7826
Because most stories will draw moronic anon to it. And it's where many mediocre wannabe tries to write and 90% of the time, quit.

These are the exception to the /th/ rule of rank stupidity.
No. 7827
I certainly don't read every story on /th/ but it seems like the stories I've listed aren't exceptions to anything there. There's absolutely nothing wrong with /th/.
No. 7828
I thought /th/ only got the reputation of a shithole as of late because of the Average Joe story and the shit-storm that came with it. Aside from the that, most every story on /th/ is of okay qaulity, at the least.
No. 7839
Some folks managed to derp some things up in that Doll Quest story as the mix-max build they choose has brought as much bad things as good if not more.

I miss Ancient Gensokyo LA anon as while that story was running, /th/ was among the smarter boards as he made it think.
No. 7842

Even that reason doesn't make any sense. Average Joe was on /border/, not /th/.
No. 7846
The Saxton Hale story was on /th/ though and it ended up the way it did thanks to anon taking advantage of a then inexperienced writer.
No. 7847
While that was a major factor I don't really think it reflect /th/ as a whole. There were a lot of things that went wrong in the situation.
No. 7848

Thank you ;_;

>/sdm/ - Scarlet Devil Mansion & Misty Lake
Fuck no. SDM gets enough attention on its own.
No. 7853
Certain /th/ stories being festering cesspools of filth isn't even a new thing. Remember GH?
At least they usually stick to the one story. Usually.
No. 7854
Perhaps the same could be said of all boards.

Nothing but a miserable little pile of danmaku. But enough talk... Have at you!
