I have created both a Twitter account and Discord server for the site. There are buttons below the site logo, but here are links to them:
Twitter - https://twitter.com/GiantessWorld
Discord - https://discord.gg/tpnzGTJ8nt
The Twitter will be mostly for updates on the site. The Discord provides a place for people to discuss the site and see updates. I hope see lots of followers on the Twitter account and for the Discord server to fill up.

The security image on the registration page was broken, so people were unable to register. I fixed it, so if you tried to register recently and were unable to, try again now. I apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.

I have been seeing problems with skins reported by different users. I am going to try and handle those, but I have a quick solution for users in the mean time.
If you got to "Account Info" and click on "Edit Preferences", there is a setting there to change your skin. That will become the default skin for your user account.
Edit: This has been handle. The Desktop skin now is responsive in mobile. Let me know if you find any problems.

I noticed that chapters uploaded on July 14th and 15th are missing the text. The latest backup from the old host does not have this story text. I am trying to figure out a way to recover these chapters, but in the mean time, I ask the authors to please reupload these chapters. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Edit: Users are reporting that it is still happening. I will try to fix it as soon as possible. Again, I apologize for the inconvenience.
Edit #2: This has been fixed. I sincerly apologize for the problems caused by this.
Edit #3: I figured out where the missing chapter text is. I am restoring it now.
Edit #4: All chapters have been restoried. Thank you everyone for you patience.
Edit #5: Turns out this has not been fixed. Works on my administrator account, but not a normal account. I will try and fix this.
Edit #6: It should now work for normal accounts. Sorry about the problems.

I am introducing myself to the users of the site. I am the new owner of this site. Asukafan2001 has step down as owner and given me control of the site. I will be running and maintaining the site.
I made some improvements to the site in the course of taking over the site:
- I moved the site to new and better hosting. The site should run flawlessly now.
- I upgraded the software that runs the site to the latest version.
- Emails are now currently working for the site. Users can now use the contact page, recover a lost password, etc.
- The site now uses HTTPS by default. This should be a better security measure for the site.
If anyone notices any bugs for the site, please contact me with them.
I want to be up front with the users about future developments for the site. I will be developing a new application for the site. I am going to design a modern web application that will be cleaner, more efficient, and more secure than the current application running the site.
If anyone has any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me or leave a comment below. I will be addressing questions in the comments of this news post.

As i'm sure many of you noticed we had an outage for a few days. I apologize for the downtime. Some people thought it would be fun to continually overload the database to bring down the site.
Everything should be back to normal

I'm a new admin. I have been a frequent visitor of this site for years (I'm on a new account now). I work in web and software development, and I saw the dilapidated state of the site. So I reached out to Asukafan2001 and offered to help fixed the site. He took me up on my offer. I will be making updates and fixes to the site in the near future. If anyone has any suggestions or bug reports, send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be making more news posts in the future, documenting my progress with fixing the site and any changes I make to the site. Thank you!

So you may have noticed that the categories tab isn't picking up on any tagged stories right now. Don't freak out, no one's stories have been affected and are all still easily available on the site, but they won't be accessed when searching through tags at the moment. While we wait on a fix, just use these links to reach whatever you need:

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

The Most Recent page is now up and working as normal. The problem has been identified and is still be worked on to permanently fix the issue. Sorry for the inconvenience.

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.

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.

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.

May everyone have a enjoyable and safe Christmas, hanukkah and Festivus.
Happy Holidays and New Years

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.

The gallery has been updated and over the next few weeks i hope to complete the merging of the old archive with the current archive so its just one archive.
--Asukafan2001 on June 03 2012 10:58 AM 1 Comments
The Old Archive, Writing Tools, and Images sections have been restored to the two new themes. Thanks to everyone who brought it to my attention.
--Asukafan2001 on May 20 2012 11:18 AM 8 Comments
New looks available today, for those of you who prefer the old one can still go back to the classic look.
You can now return to Skyrim...or Diablo 3!
--Asukafan2001 on May 16 2012 12:44 PM 14 Comments
We are back again after another hack. Sorry for the downtime.
