    We’ve spent the last week looking over everyone’s comments, talking to users in private messages, and the admins talking amongst themselves to figure out what needs to be done to work on the issues with our current system in regards to our M4R and M4D templates. We ultimately decided to keep these two templates as there are some reasons why certain items have a greater urgency that necessitates the deletion template (see below). Due to concerns brought up over mis-usage of the marked for review and marked for deletion templates, we have decided to adjust and clarify the circumstances in which they should be used.

    1. Spam or pages where the author explicitly states the story is a trollpasta.
    2. Terms of Use violations. This encompasses harassment, …

    I know it’s been a hectic month; I’ve been chatting with users on Discord about their views on the recent shift towards a site that is more focused on authors and away from exclusivity/gate-keeping. A lot of people have had good ideas about how to approach this situation and the admins have been listening and discussing amongst themselves. We ultimately decided as this is a matter that will influence people’s contributions and attitudes, that it needs to be put to a group vote. First though, we do need to explain a bit about what went wrong and how we want to proceed with this discussion.

    The deletion tag was originally made for stories that were either spam pages, trollpastas, violated our spinoff rules, were unfinished, or violated the wi…

    Guess what time it is?! Yeah, it's time for Horr-tacular 2019! The entire month where I watch a horror movie a day throughout October and let you guys know what I think. I'm letting you guys know in advance if you want to give out suggestions for Monday. I'm going to try to watch your suggestions, but I make no promises as I'm in my fifth semester of Vet. school.

    Let's all enjoy this spooky season together! Here's a breakdown of what I'll be doing each day of the week:

    Spooky Animu Sunday:

    Yup, Sundays are going to be devoted to horror anime. I’m going to give a quick recap of the series and my thoughts on it.

    Movies I Want to See Monday:

    Mondays are going to be focused on movies that I want to see, but haven’t found the time to watch. Feel fre…

    There has been a lot of discussion in the past about licensing, authorial rights, and concerns raised about users posting stories written by other authors for a while now and we’ve reached a consensus that is going to be implemented on the wiki very soon. This blog is to lay out the rule and respond to any concerns and clarify any misconceptions that come with this change in the comments.

    As I’m sure many of you are aware, the internet landscape has changed quite a bit with more focus (rightfully so) being placed on the rights of authors who write creepypastas and other horror literature. While I know that creepypastas have their roots in people copy/pasting them around without much in way of citation or accreditation, those times have chan…

    Jumpscare surprise return! Musical stinger!

    I bet you didn’t expect that! Did you really think I’d give up the ghost of the Halloween season that easily?!

    This is going to be a lot less organized and ambitious. I am in the middle of the Veterinary program and to be honest, I don’t know how this is going to go overall with classes, homework, exams, and clubs/organizations. I am going to be taking the path of least-resistance here while, at the same time, trying my best to show you some new, terrifying, or just plain terrible movies you may have not seen yet. So without further adieu, I bring you Travis/EmpyrealInvective’s Horr-tacular 2018!

    I’ll start this Horr-tacular with something that interested me when I first heard about it and disappoin…
