Just as a fellow writer, let me just say to keep trying. The reality is though, with only one story, and no artwork or comics or other stuff to surround it, it's nearly impossible to find any sort of audience for an independent website. Write, keep writing, get better, join writer's groups, get feedback, etc. There's a bunch of sites out there that cater to fiction writing in every genre, and you're probably better off getting some stuff up on one of those and getting feedback then trying to run your own site at this point. Heck, I run this whole place, fancy myself a writer, and have dozens of finished stories... and even I still haven't managed to get my personal/writing website up and going after nearly ten years! :-)

Hosting Q&A / Re: A few questions about hosting an oekaki site
« on: October 05, 2010, 05:54:18 am »
1) There are already sites that hosts Oekaki boards here. Stuff slips through, but it's up to you to maintain basic censorship. E.g. deleting outright pornographic images when you find them.
2) Meh, fanservice isn't a problem unless it's outright pornographic.
3) Yes, see #1, other sites have Oekaki boards already.
4) The activity rule doesn't likely apply, for one simple reason... I'm unlikely to approve an application for just an Oekaki site. The existing ones are side-features on sites where people already have their own art or comics.
5) That's not "paid referring" from what you describe. It's just a domain name, and that's fully supported. See "Virtual Domains" on

As alluded to in #4, I'm not likely to approve a site just for an Oekaki board. I'm not saying "no" outright, in case you have some new/clever idea you can sell me on, but for the most part, I expect site owners to be producing content. If you have a comic or some such, and a community grows around it, and you want to let that community have an Oekaki board, that's a different thing, but the prime focus of a site needs to be creative content from the owner, or from regular contributors.

Okay, can't afford to move cross country. Sticking in Houston, applying for jobs here.

Okay, I sat down and read all your posts at once. It is...

Well, it's cliche, it has a lot of typos and other grammar/spelling errors. It doesn't even move a consistent pace.

But, ignoring all that... damn if it doesn't look like you're trying.

Two questions. First, with the 'Cubi and all, I'm presuming this is a spin-off of DMFA and/or furcadia? Second, do you think you can handle all the web stuff to get this online? HTML doesn't have to be fancy, but you've got to be able to manage it yourself (or with help you've procured.)

Heh, congratulations... the closest I ever got to being paid to be in the tropics was I once worked an extra saturday during a hurricane/tropical storm. :-/

Do make sure you see a live volcano though. I spent a week in Maui, and never saw an active one, which is the one thing I regret. Still a fun trip though.

Been real busy with real life stuff, but I haven't forgotten this... I do see you've been making updates, I'm going to read 'em when I get a bit more time.

I'm juggling a lot of thing in real life right now... but this shouldn't be much of a problem. Poke me/this in a few days if I haven't gotten back to you by then.

So I finally got around to putting the pictures from my recent trip up online. Anyone interested can check them out here.

One of my favorites is this one of the seattle skyline. You really need to view it full screen to see the detail.

Alright, this new anti-spam mod seems to be pretty good. I'm setting registration back to merely requiring email activation. Anyone it detects as a spammer will need to be manually approved and/or rejected, but other, legit new users should be able to start posting right away. Let's see how this goes.

This seems the best place to update this... I just installed an anti-spam plugin for the forums that checks registrations against's database. Should make it easier for me (and anyone else playing admin) when checking new registrations. It should automatically highlight spammers in red I think. We'll see how good it is, I might get to turn off manual approval if it's good enough.

Alright, I'm back from my trip, and catching up around here. Some minor upgrades to a few packages, like newer PHP and apache, etc. As usual, report problems as you find them. The trip itself was good, and I think I'm going to end up moving to Seattle here shortly. If anyone has any tips about good/cheap apartments or IT jobs in that area, do let me know! I'll probably toss up some pictures from the trip soon-ish here if anyone's curious. Canada was quite hospitable. :-)

Update: Pictures are up for any who care. See

Well, I've decided to move across country and get a new job somewhere. I still don't know where or what, but I need to do it within 30 days. I'm outside of Seattle right now, looking for where I might like to live. It's looking to be Washington state somewhere, and then I'll find a job shortly after (even if it's serving food) since I have to. I'll let you know how it turns out this go 'round. :-)

Yeah... just got back into the US. In Bellingham tonight. Got three full days in this area, flying out on the 8th from SEATAC. I'll try and catch you on AIM.

Halfway through the trip. Got rained out this morning while camping in Glacier, and drove through a snow storm on the way out. In Calgary tonight, then going to Banff tomorrow for a couple nights, then on though BC and back to Seattle then fly home on the 8th. God I love the mountains!
