New Owner


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.

Thank you.

Hi! I wanted to point out that even with the maintenance, for some reason the site it still glitchy when accessed through mobile portrait mode. It's only readable when it's on landscape. Other than that, I think the site is doing okay. :)

I don't have any questions, but the other people in the team and I wrote some messages to you. I hope you'll read them and start giving us some instructions too, or else we won't be able to help.

I notice some story categories have 2 different lists. It seems older stories like for BBW are not linked to the new list when you search in the site. However if you search via google, it will provide 2 links. One is for the old list of bbw tags and one is for the new ones. Is there a way to combine these so all of the stories are included inside the site instead being archived?

Hell yeah, brother! 

Does this mean we're finally going to get a more robust search function?

Mobile is almost unreadable and changing phone settings from desktop to mobile does nothing. I'd change the website skin(or whatever that's called) but I can't find it.

What plans do you have to notify users that there's a system outage and not something permanent? Also, who are your backups if unforeseen life events/developments arise?

Glad to see this site getting worked on again. A freind of mine noticed a pretty big site breaking bug where if change the template to one of the older ones you can no longer gain any access to your account  you just get this error "TemplatePower Error: Couldn't open or read [ ./skins/Old Skins/header.tpl ]!"

Woo, we got an "s" to our "http"! Thank you for this.

What do we call you Admin cause that name's creepy and a more humanizing name to go by would be neat. Also is there an entirely new staff cause I noticed I don't have any admin options anymore.

As for a bug you still can't delete stories. Or if you can then it's possibly some very old stories that are immune to it and just make the site bug out when attempted. The workaround I've been working with for years was essentially turning stories people asked to have deleted blank but a proper way to delete them would be good.

Glad to finally see some changes, the site is in dire need of a complete overhaul. Is there any way to contribute to the process, help with the coding, migrations or the infrastructure?

Also another way of communication for this site would be neat as the comment section is really not ideal and outdated, maybe a Discord server?

Thank god. Could you please maybe also add a twitter account, just for status updates maybe if the site maybe would be down. The site is WAY faster now btw.

I've been a visitor of this site since its inception. Love it. Good to see this. Thank you.

"HTTPS" is the magic word here, anything else is a nice addition - thank you for taking the job.

@Asukafan2001 thank you for running my favorite gts site for such a long time!

Hello. I am going to address all the questions above.

The categories must have been changed at some point. I'll look into fixing that in the database.

That is one of the planned features for the new application.

As mentioned in my other news post, there default skin called Desktop is now mobile friendly.

I plan on setting up a Twitter account that will alert users of site updates. For now, I will just make news posts.

Thank you for alerting me of that. I have removed that skin.

@Emma Gear
I am just trying to keep myself anonymous. Sorry for coming off as creepy.
When I moved other the database, there were only two administrators. You weren't one of them. Send me an email if you want to be added back.
I tested it and I am able to delete stories. I was not able to find problems.

I will be making a post about contribute to all of that when I start the project. Thank you for the offer.

Will do that soon. News posts are what I will be using now.

Good luck with the site, I've loved it ever since finding it so hopeful that it will continue on for a very long time! Only scary part is"modernizing"  which actually a spell check in the comments would be nice lol  But as a casual reader it serves its purpose for me and I like that.  I can think of 2 things ppl may enjoy though interactive stories and maybe custom tags for stories

- stargate1990 on July 17 2020 4:50 AM

I have just sent you a message via Contact Form regarding my wish to delete my account in this site. I hope you may read it and be able to help me soon. Good day.
