    What is an Anthology?

    Each year, Gay Authors sets a number of themes for stories. Typically, there are 4 themes during the year. An author writes a story that is related to that theme and the story is posted as group with the anthology. These are GA sponsored events. More extensive details can be found here in the Anthology Forum:

  9. This does look good.... I think after Outer Worlds, this is the game I'm most looking forward to right now...
  10. And because I don't have enough distractions in my life, I picked up the new game from Remedy Entertainment, Control. This seems to be an evolution of the pretty good Quantum Break. https://controlgame.com/ I spent about an hour playing and the game looks cools with some interesting visuals. It also has enough of a hook in the story that I'm interested in playing more. Has anyone else tried it out yet?
  11. So, I have been addicted to the Mario Bros since the original Nintendo came out when I was a kid. I just picked up the New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe for Switch over the weekend and I was playing that. https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/new-super-mario-bros-u-deluxe-switch/ I think this is the first Mario Bros in quite some time that gave me the feeling of the original. Or probably more truthfully, like my favorite on Nintendo, Super Mario 3. The graphics are really pretty too. They did some nice lighting effects. It makes me look forward to Luigi's Mansion. Anyone else enjoy Mario Bros?
  12. Yes it should. We'll know about both Sony and MS at that point. I'm a MS first guy, since I went all digital this generation. I have a huge library and with MS giving away 4 free games a month for years now.... my library is insane and they've already said it'll play in the next gen with backwards compatibility. My only big sadness is that my favorite game type by far is single player and Sony almost owns that. Though, alarmingly, they say they are moving away from that a bit in the next gen. Though with all the studios MS has bought, Obsidian especially, there should be some great single players coming for Xbox. You know, if I could just use my xbox controller on Playstation 4, I'd actually use the Playstation more. Phenomenal games... world's worst controller with a ton of gibberish for help. r1 r2 prompts... How the hell am I supposed to know what that is without stopping to look. RT and RB are obvious.
  13. I like digital foundry when they dig into details.
  14. I grabbed an NES Mini (And a super nes mini) when I had the chance for just that reason. Though with Nintendo online, there are starting to release the old nintendo games on subscription on switch.
  15. 4K is worth it. I think 8k on console next year is a pipedream. The Xbox One X, struggles to do 4k to what a PC can do on a mid-range graphic card these days. I'd rather they focus on making what we have super fast and pretty.
  16. You are mistaken in how you think the software works The blog post above, if you actually read it, says authors and poets should go vote. That's clear. An open blog post gets seen by more authors than a post in a forum does. Not all authors visit all forums, but most authors see the blog There is, in fact, also an announcement directly solely at the author groups that directs them to vote. Multiple things are required to get maximum result. No. If you feel you are getting ganged up on, it is because you are not picking up on the social cues. People are being polite. That does not seem to work with you. So let's be clear here: This is how we are running this because this is how it is most successful. You expressed your opinion, we gave you a reason back. NOW DROP IT.
  17. This issue has come up in the past, as Renee indicated. It's very difficult to write for a theme that you don't feel. The current process has proved most successful. Everyone suggests themes, authors vote on all themes they could see themselves writing for. The themes with the most votes, move forward and we go again. This process allows to find the maximum number of authors that will write to a theme, thus giving us the most likely amount of content. And I agree totally with this.
  18. Welcome back! I'm sorry to say that Dan dropped out of contact after his husband @Trebs passed away from cancer. @Topher Lydon has been on and off. I'd agree with the recommendations above

    Story Tag Request

    Drug Use is a moderation issue.
  20. I've turned it off on mobile.
  21. Yup. Confirmed. I've made a bug report. You can use "Activity" -> "Latest Story Reviews" from the Red Menu as a work around for now.
  22. I do. The initial goals are based on our weekly average for the last few months.
  23. That is a good idea. I will add it to the feature request list for our programmer.
  24. It's back. The forum software folks are attempting to track down a bug with the blog and one of the first things they always do is 'turn off third party apps'. Stories fits that bill.
  25. @Timothy M. It means 61 out of 90 new chapters and 787 out of 950 new chapter comments. 61 means the number completed so far and 90 is the goal for the set period of time. "New Chapter" is a newly posted chapter. A "New Chapter Comment" is a newly posted chapter comment.
