What makes you say that? I've been on the library team before Conrad left and am the current admin now, and I'm confused? I can assure you that the rules regarding stories in the library haven't been changed in the slightest since Conrad left. We still have the same library mods, even. Writers of all kinds are encouraged to post their work here if it meets the library standards.Yeah, there were a lot of great stories in the part of this site they just killed, which was my primary reason for visiting. Not many new stories since feeder fiction writers were chased off since Conrad left.
Well you are always welcome to share your stories here, I hope you know that. For what it is worth, I'm sorry things went the way they did with the Public Library. We approached it wrong and got too caught up in the excitement of making something new and didn't stop to consider how the authors would feel. I suppose because a few of the mod team are authors and wouldn't mind our work being used that way, we didn't realise how much it could upset other authors or that we were not paying the proper respect to the story writers that we should have been.Not sure if this post will be welcome or not. In any case I was a frequent contributor here until my (admitted) meltdown over the Public Library section. Since then I've written and posted a few tales elsewhere. I have always respected this site and would consider putting some stories here again.
However I would not do so as long as the Public Library is in play. Not going into the gory details once again, but it does not seem to be much use in any case. There have been no updates in nearly three years and the main raison d'etre has been removed. (Need to log in to read stories is no longer required.)
Any reply would be welcomed and acted on accordingly. (Thanks.)
Actually I was hoping you would respond. This was not personal, its just a disagreement over reposting. If I had any ill will towards anyone personally I would not have contacted you. And I'm sorry if I left that impression....incidentally, I understand that I'm not your favourite person on these forums and you were probably hoping for somebody other than me to answer you here. I hope that answers some of your questions though, at least.
Yes, 98% would be a really good day.I do think there is some need for a curated library of sorts. There are now so many stories all over the web, but as a frequent reader, 98% are terrible, and you spend much of your time sifting through loads of it to find something quality.
Any ideas how/where things could be curated or more easily filtered in some way, while accessing the myriad of fatlit out there?
You and Starlings latest stuff has been really nice, anyway. I had just made an account when I made this post, it’s not really how I feel anymore.Belly builders was more hardcore gain, gay centric bhm stories...only site i can think of that had more strong feederist/erotic tendancies that still had plots.
I just don't have the energy to sift through other sites - most are cringeworthy (to my own personal tastes)
