    Times Changed

    Yup. This is a repost. Just like it says in the story note... I figured posting it as it was is better than waiting more time to re-edit it again, no?
  3. It always seems like I have 1000 irons in the fire.  My To Do list gets two new items for every one item I can kick off of it.  This applies to everything.  Work, Site, My Reading pile, My movie pile, my gaming pile, and my project list.  I also seem to be off kilter on what I'm working on... If I feel like reading, I'm too tired... If I feel like gaming, I've got some deadline I have to reach on something else... if I want to work on projects around the house, then it is like a sauna outside and impossible to work.


    Things will calm down eventually...

      I know what you mean. So much to do, so little time in which to do it. :hug:

      Especially with my books. For every two or three I tick off my "bucket list", I add several more.

      Hopefully things will even out soon. It's important to take time for yourself every once in a while.  :hug:

      "Things will calm down eventually..." We keep telling ourselves that, Myr and sometimes it works, though usually something has to go. It might be nice to be a Superman occasionally.

  4. Thank you so much! I'm glad the story had such a positive impact for you. I'm still, very slowly, working on this. Life, career, and running this site take up so much time. I'll get there eventually though. Oh, and welcome to Gay Authors!
  5. Ah. I see the issue. I shorthanded the explanation. It should have said " if you don't want a notification when a story/chapter is updated, uncheck the "Notify me when story/chapter I follow is updated" Updated means "Edits". There are toggles for Story edits and Chapter edits. as shown in the highlight above. There is no connection between "Update" and "New Chapter" in notifications. The purpose of the story update is to let you know a status change, from in progress to Complete, for example. Chapter edits are usually just clean-ups.
  6. I have already answered that. "updated" means editing. There is a separate toggle for new chapter notifications:
  7. This is the notification so and so Edited chapter X. Ditto for the Story update notification.
  8. Notifications are now working in full. Before, it seemed to be randomly notifying groups of 25 people instead of everyone. With the last update on the 30th, everyone is getting notified. If you don't want a notification when a story/chapter is updated, uncheck the "Notify me when story/chapter I follow is updated" The below screenshot are my own settings. I have that off myself. If you don't care about comments on stories you follow, turn that off. If you are an author, I'd recommend leaving on the two settings for "story I authored" Just go to your Notification settings here: https://www.gayauthors.org/notifications/options/
  9. We need your help! We'd like to update the older stories in the system. If you haven't seen the blog, the information is here: Use this topic for updating stories with missing/inaccurate information where the author is missing or author is unable to edit the story. For this please use this format: Story link Description (if changed) Tags - Changes only. Remove X, Add X Status - What is should be. Series (if required)
  10. The work around for the moment for people with more than one page of stories is to use the Author Filter from the story page. For example, Comicality: https://www.gayauthors.org/stories/browse/?filter_authors=21 The programmer has been alerted and we hope for a patch soon.
  11. The new Stories 2.3 RC3 version has been posted on the site that introduces the new live filtering/sorting tool and eliminates the need for the advanced search. Known Bugs: Filters not always clearing when you click the - (minus) button on the filter bar. Work around: Just click Stories on the main Red menu bar for stories or Authors for authors. This will clear the filters. Publish Date and Update Date as shown as swapped on some stories. Subcategory dropdowns in Category filter partially works in Microsoft Edge Browser and does not work at all in Internet Explorer. Work around: Use Chrome or Firefox or Safari like everyone else. Genre and Tags Browse page not displaying genres and tags in proper order. Newest Date sort is not sorting by last updated date properly. Work around: use Activity Stream for Story Updates: https://www.gayauthors.org/discover/6/ Odd permissions error when a story is posted, but a chapter is not. In addition to the system allowing this in the first place. If you encounter another bug, please be as specific as possible in describing how the bug happened. We will follow this description so we can repeat it. Example: I clicked on "Authors I Follow" on the Follow menu and all the stories disappeared. I am using Chrome on Windows 10. or I clicked on the Minus sign and the sorting and filtering didn't change. I'm using Safari on iPad X

    Stories 2.3.2 Is now Live

    We have just posted a new version of Stories. In theory, this finally corrects the notification bugs. If you Follow a Story, you should now get your notifications every time. If you Follow an Author (on the author page) you should be alerted when they post a new story. A "Part of Series" toggle has been added to filters: The quick search links now properly activate existing filters and you should be able to change them or remove them with the minus sign. Example, Series stories by dkstories: https://www.gayauthors.org/stories/?filter_authors=212&filter_series=1 There is now a reminder on "Add New Chapter" box that reminds you about the posting rules: Moderation Queue Important Note: The moderation queue is now based on Story/Chapter reputation only! We are working on a method of displaying an author's current story/chapter reputation if they're under the limit. So if you suddenly find yourself in the Story Moderation Queue, where you were not before, this is why. Reply to Review should be working properly now. The filterbox on the Series page is now working properly. The Quick Search on Series page is now correct as well. Searching by Series word count is also working: https://www.gayauthors.org/stories/browse/series/?sortby=totalwords&filter_sort=totalwords

    Respond to this review

    Yes, it should work now. Not sure the notification is working for it though.
  14. Nope. That's when the system started and when we loaded all those stories into the system. Prior to that, the stories were just normal webpages.
  15. Don't forget to pay your author with feedback

  18. Gay Author's Gallery hosts a variety of member photos or images needed for story content; images uploaded by members should contain varied subject matter to avoid repetitious content. We would suggest everyone keep this in mind before posting multiple pictures at the same time. Have a lot of similar photos or non-copyright story character inspiration images to share? Try combining them into a collage first before uploading using this tip in the Gallery FAQ. If you need to post more than a few images, please consult a Site Moderator first. Members can upload images of themselves, places, pets, story material, etc. If posting pictures of others, please make sure you have permission to post the pictures. Only post pictures that you own the copyright for. At no time is it allowed to post anything containing nudity; this includes artwork. Gallery images containing strategically covered nudity (eg: arms and legs covering genitals or breasts), sheer or see-through clothing, lewd or provocative poses, close-ups of breasts (women), buttocks, or crotches, and partially clothed underage persons (below 18 years of age) will be removed. go back to FAQ

    I did see it. I'll probably get it eventually, but I've got a pretty big backlog of games at the moment.

    Jurassic Park World

    I enjoyed this movie. I was a big fan of the first Jurassic Park. It was a definite classic. Of course, that was before Steven Speilberg nuked the fridge... Jurassic Park 2 kind of sucked as the only character they kept was Jeff "The Annoyance" Goldblum. Jurassic Park III, well... it was better than 2. The kid was less annoying too. So yeah... this is better than 2 or 3. Have you seen it? Where does it rate for you?
  21. This is an interesting fantasy world that doesn't really have magic. There is a very large series of these books, including a couple of spin-off series. It's a well-developed world and the books do have some good emotional impact. There is one note of caution here. For some strange reason, the books in this series are NOT stand alone. They end abruptly without warning and start right back up in the next book. So be aware, that if you pick up this book and like it, you're looking down the barrel of 9 books to get the full story with them getting a little more book-like towards the end. Definitely an enjoyable series!

    Summer Break 2018

    Wow, with summer here in the Northern Hemisphere, we are definitely seeing a drop in people online. Even I'm getting more sun. I'm going to cut back on the number of blogs I'm doing for now and pick up again in the fall. It'll give me more time to do these silly summer homeowner things I'm suddenly stuck with. lol.

    Summer Break 2018

    Oh my. I'm renovating 1550 square feet in the barn for my projects. (The house is only 1300 sq ft, for the record) and by renovating, that means removing old stuff down to the studs and in one area, replacing even the studs and floorboards, wiring, insulation, sheetrock. It's going to be a long project.
  24. This week's flashback brings us back to Winter of 2012.
