Story Formatting + Site Issues
Hey there, making this news post for two reasons. Firstly, I'm sure many of you who've posted stories or reviews have noticed that there's been some formatting issues. Since the site update recently any double spaces left aren't properly working, leading many stories to look like giant, crudely formatted blocks.



Until this issue is resolved in a more satisfactory manner, you can use the line break tag to get extra spaces when necessary. Here's a really meta example: http://i.imgur.com/kbclUL8.png



In addition, we're aware of a handful of issues the site has had since the new skin was applied. Many of these are known, but to make sure we have all the info necessary you should help us out!



Either leave a comment on this news post, or contact someone at the GiantessWorld chat about any issues you may be having. We're making a master list of them in order to pass them on up and get them resolved.



To leave a comment you'll need a GiantessWorld account. Just click the "# Comments" link at the bottom of this post and scroll to the bottom of the screen.



Sorry about all the inconvenience and the lack of updates recently, but we're hoping to get it all worked out soon.

Hey, all.

While we wait on a fix, just use these links to reach whatever you need:

Category Updates!

Hey there everyone, just wanted to go ahead and make note of a few changes that have been made to the categories section recently.
butt



-Renamed the "Overweight Girl" category to "BBW" and gave it a brief description


-Fixed a handful of typos that were noticed on the Categories


-Locked the Toilet tag. No new stories can be added to it. Instead, it's been separated into two new categories, Watersports and Scat. Descriptions have been added to both at the Categories page.


-Also added the following new tags


Footwear: This is for use if the story contains scenes focused on the shoes, boots, or other kinds of footwear a character has. This isn't a tag, it's a category. Please don't use it unless the footwear is actually focused on.


Legwear: Much like footwear, this is a category, not a tag. This one applies to a focus on nylons, socks, stockings, tights, etc, over just bare skin or shoes.


Sci Fi / Fantasy: Despite the name, this is intended as more of a catch-all for all stories that take place in an alternate universe, or basically aren't modern times real life. It's just that Science Fiction and Fantasy make up the VAST majority of stories like this


Furry: Should be self explanatory, but any characters with anthropomorphized characters will generally be considered furry.


Destruction: This is for stories with a big focus on widespread destruction. This is most common with rampage stories, but because it can also be unaware, Destruction seemed a more apt category.


Odor: This is mainly to be used in conjunction with other tags, but it encompasses any kind of odor fetishes. Overly smelly feet, farts, etc.



This is where you, the readers come in! If you've got any stories that make use of any of these tags, please, by all means, update the tags on your own stories to help us out as we try and work on this ourselves. Like I mentioned, the Toilet tag is now locked, but myself and some others will be working through all the stories currently tagged with it, and separating them into the Watersports, Scat, or both categories.



Again, please help us out by adding any of these new tags to your own stories! If you'd like to help out with the tagging on a story that isn't yours, you can send us an e-mail by clicking the Contact Us link at the very bottom of the page. Send a link to the story, along with any tags it doesn't have, but should have, and we'll make sure to update it!



Thanks very very much to anyone and everyone that helps us out with this! Until next time, we'll be seeing ya!

A Few Small Updates!

Recently a few minor changes have been made to the Administration at Giantessworld; most notably that EmmaGear and myself have been brought on to help out with tagging old stories and doing general site support! To that end, we've recently revamped the support system, getting a new e-mail address that all Admins have access to. This means that getting in touch with one of us for any reason should be a lot faster and more efficient than ever before! If you have a comment about the site, PLEASE use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page and one of us will address your comment as soon as humanly possible. Thanks a lot!



Oh, we'll also be making MUCH more use of the front page now. Expect a new poll every so often, along with actually making use of the "Featured" section of the front page.

Website Changes

Jacksmith and I worked out size and category definitions for the content on this website. Some of the tags you have been used to have been changed and sizes attached to each category have been adjusted as well. Authors may find they will need to re-edit size ranges of certain ones of their stories, in order to account for the system becoming more detailed.


Categorizing Size Change roles has been expanded and adjusted from what you are used to. You will see a new system has been put in place to identify the genders of characters growing or shrinking in a story. A capital letter refers to a giant while a lowercase letter refers to a tiny, with m and f representing male and female respectively. For example, the F/m tag means a story contains a giantess interacting with a tiny man, the M/f tag refers to a giant man interacting with a tiny woman, and so on.


So authors when adding stories please make careful attention to the changes and edit your tags for your stories as needed.


You can view all these changes not only on the add story page but also by clicking the definitions link at the top.


I would like to especially thank Jacksmith for his work on this project. It wouldn't have been completed without him. Anyone with further questions about the new categories system should comment here or feel free to email either of us.


Later Days,


Asuka

Website Fix and Mobile Update

It was reported that some authors were having issues editing there stories. As a Fopen error would occur. That issue has been resolved as of today. I would like to thank the members who notified and helped out with the testing. If you uploaded a story in the last 10 hours or so you may need to re-upload your story or chapter. Sorry for the inconvenience.


While the error was being fixed I took the liberty to launch a mobile version of the website so it can be viewed more easily from a smartphone. It has been tested on andriod and windows phone, but should work on a iphone as well. I just don't have access to a iphone.


Later Days,


Asuka

Upgrades

Performances upgrades have been completed.


The upgades weren't planned to take place when they did and were all behind the scenes upgrades, however due to how things went I wasn't really able to give any kind of proper notice. So I apologize for the unexpected downtime and the nature and suddenness in which it took place.


Hopefully the site runs smoother now.


---


The issue involving story text not saving thus a blank story story being posted has been resolved. Since correcting the problem none of the test accounts showed any problems adding stories or chapters. If anyone notices the problem persisting please contact me by email or by replying to the post.


 


thanks

Forums

Well I had done the leg work for quite awhile ago and was never sure if I should or shouldn't do it. However i decided to Launch the forums today.

Unfortuantely, I couldn't get the databases to link correctly without destablizing the website. So at this time you will have to sign up seperately for the forums and the site.

The purpse I had in mind was to create a more story based forums, for the writers, and authors of the community. Where they could have haven of there own.
