He caught me off guard by not only being eloquent and grammatically correct, but by disguising his animosity in something resembling a compliment. Most trolls aren't worth my while, but this one put in enough effort to be somewhat challenging. I still managed to take him down a couple of notches though.
    Hey, I checked out your chapter 6 troll. His critiques were almost laughable. How dare he suggest an extremely literate writer like you take a local college course on writing!

    I believe we writers have to make an adjustment to the joke about opinions. Let's change it to: Trolls are like assholes; everyone has one!

    I read it too. One thing I think, is that it doesn't have to be overtly sexual for a story to be erotic. You can be incredibly sensual and still be erotic. A simple, "I felt my daughters small breasts press against me as she gave me a hug. Innocent enough of a hug, but the smell of her coupled with the realization that she wasn't a little girl anymore...." bam, that right there, enough to get most guys horny. At least, the ones who like the little girls. I'd get horny from that. Hell, I just got horny from that!

    And there is nothing overtly sexual about it, it's a sensual moment, yet, still erotica.

    Funnily enough, I did take a couple of creative writing classes in college, and I did really well.

    Actually, I think the sex scene in that chapter is probably one of my weakest ones. If he read nothing but that chapter, I suppose I could kind of understand his opinion. If he had said he just didn't like that scene, I wouldn't call him a troll, but he judged my writing ability on that one chapter.

    Absolutely. There's something surprisingly erotic about that kind of intimate moment. I think it's because there's nothing more feminine than a girl showing affection, and since I'm a heterosexual man, I'm just naturally attracted to femininity.

    To really appreciate that kind of scene, though, the reader has to slow down and not be in too much of a hurry to get to the action. Those kinds of scenes are what I call the foreplay. The sex is great, but it's so much more erotic if there's plenty of foreplay to build up the erotic atmosphere. The best stories tease the reader, taking things slow but keeping the air charged with eroticism until it's almost frustrating, then delivering on the implied promise.

    Don. I have noticed a lot of mysterious, bedeviling, strangeness, too, but I'll be damned if I can get a handle on it! You told bystander that you would PM him your thoughts, so could you do the same for me?

    I have noticed that there are a whole lot more writers joining in and making the competition for readers and votes a cutthroat contest. Now, I have no problem with new writers (once upon a time, I was one too) or competition, but I'm puzzled by the plethora of extremely high ratings. Not all that many months ago you couldn't beg, borrow, or steal a long-sustained 90 or mid-90 rating. Often, the top rated stories included all high 80s.

    Oh well, perhaps I'm just an old 'fuddy-duddy' writer and some new blood is what readers want!

    So Don, if you can give me your ideas, I would appreciate it. You are the finest connoisseur of erotic XNXX stories I know! Without your guidance, this thread would have died long ago! Other writers might give me an 'AMEN' to this!

    AMEN!

    I don't think the issue you point out is new. For whatever reason, the score on a story on this site tends to go down over time. So the top stories of all time list tends to look an awful lot like the top stories of the past 30 days list. New stories seem to have such an advantage over old ones on this site that it's almost pointless to maintain an all-time highest rated list.

    For example, most of my stories were scoring in the high 80's and 90's in the first couple of weeks after being posted, and now they've all dropped to the 60's and 70's. Even the ones that spent a full 30 days toward the top of the Top Rated list have dropped to the low 80's. I hit #3 on the highest rated authors list at one point, but now I'm down toward the bottom of the first page. I have no idea why that's so. I would chalk it up to my enemies artificially lowering my score, except that my observation above about the top rated lists seems to show a parallel with other authors.

    My recommendation is that they fix the Top Rated All-Time List to exclude any stories posted in the last 30 days. That way, the stories on that list will better reflect which ones are really the most popular.

    As far as fixing the issue with the lowering scores, since I don't know the cause of the problem, I can't offer a solution.

    I guess with so many stories the easiest think for a new visitor to do is go to the new release page. If you get one positive vote you pop to the top and stay there until either some thumbs downs, or a new batch comes up and they get the 100%.
    Once a story falls off the front page the read count hardly moves.
    How come some stories get a hundred thousand reads in a few days with a 95% and another one with a 95% has twenty thousand??

    I noticed, thanks to this threat, even my older stories will get a read and a comment, still.

    I don't understand the following on my one story though. I wanted to kill it after three posts but I now have #ten, eleven and twelve written and I'm waiting to finish it off with thirteen. Then that's it! Don't let me drag it on! It needs to end. The facts that the story was based on, are lost under thousands of pounds of fiction! (Obviously)

    Why did I start writing this? Oh, Amen, thanks for this thread.
    My guess, the number of stories and new writers is a cycle and it will fade when the warm summer months return.

    Thanks for the Amen's.... I appreciate that, but even more do I appreciate the chance to find so many very good writers that otherwise would have been missed. Amen to us all.

    Does the click of a button constitute too much effort on behalf of a reader. The writer has given of him/herself in sweat and sometimes tears; if not exactly in blood. Surely they deserve one click on a button.

    I have also invited comments; at this stage i'll even take abuse instead of constructive criticism. We are all striving to better ourselves. How can we do this without some feedback.

    Does anyone have any comments on these points (fingers crossed.)

    I just had a pleasant surprise. I was just checking the Sex Stories forum to see how my new chapter is doing since it posted earlier today. While I was there I decided to do something I never did before, I checked the authors list and found to my surprise that I'm number 2 on the list when it's set to the average scores. Thank you to everyone whose voted for my stories, I never knew were that well liked.

    Congratulations! I haven't read your stories myself; too much pregnancy, which is a real turn-off for me. But I do know you've been toward the top of the list for a while now. I'm jealous, but happy for you.

    Hey Experts users of XnXX,

    Is there a trick to getting the author search to work?

    Also,
    Has anyone ever had comments on a story disappear? One of my stories has a problem showing the comments. I have used the report option on the story itself and the message to the admin, but neither came back with anything. It shows that there are 74 comments, but you cannot see them.

    Thanks

    For that many comments, I have seen some stories with perhaps 9 or 10 pages of comments listed, but when you click on the last page number, more numbers show up. I don't know if this helps or not. Hope so.

    It's not that there are too many, it's that none show up. Just the word, comment. It's some kind of error. Out of those 74 comments, when I could see them, they were all positive! I was thrilled.

    I didn't really need to say that, but I did need to test my signature to see if it links to my story page.

    Thanks

    Not that this helps fix the problem, but I can back you up on your claim. It says that there are 74 comments on "My Neighbor's Incest Part IX" but they're all missing. That sucks. I hope you get it resolved.

    Sorry I didn't check your story to make sure of what I was speaking. DC did so everything is okay. There are a lot of things on this site that don't work as advertised, but, overall I think it is a good site on which to spend some time.

    I agree to both. Some times it's just a matter of a loose nut behind the key board, like with my signature, that I finally got working. Other times it's a matter of pointing it out to the admin. Then, some times it just not going to work!

    This is something I've been debating with myself for a while and I hope I'm not breaking any rules by posting a reference to another site here. As some of my readers know I don't just write adult stories, I write regular stories as well and I've been posting my regular novels at another site. Just a little warning here, my regular novels are not erotic and they're aimed at teens so there's very little sexual content, in fact some people may consider me to be a bit of a hypocrite when they read my regular novels, but they are aimed at a different audience from my adult stories. Anyway, if you want to check out my regular novels you can find them at www.booksie.com/dale_miel. Feel free to check them out and let me know what you think.

    I think it's great that you can tap into multiple sources within to create stories. I actually have one story on here that is also written strictly as a love story, without the sex. The same exact tale of a conflict with right and wrong, except the sex has been omitted. If I get time, I will look at your other work.
    I have been said to be a "stupid fuck head, self promoter" by a commenter but I take the chance anyway. Only because I have been out of commission for so long, I want to let those of you have followed my on going story, that I finally got the next chapter up. More is waiting for validation and I'm writing the rest as we speak. So to speak I guess.
    Here's a preview:
    Billions of thoughts and images flashed through my brain at light speed. They collided with emotions too powerful for my years, causing me to slip into a black cavern in my mind. Suddenly, the splash from a giant tear drop hitting my hand, brought me back from my mental stupor. When I realized the waterfall had come from my own eyes, I knew I wasn't helping Susan through her tragic ethical conflict.
    That will be my last self promoting "stupid fuck head" move.

    Thanks for the heads-up info about the other site for posting non-sexual stories. I too have some non-sexual writings I'd like to try out somewhere. I checked your stories and found out one of your novels had 1,500,000 words! Damn, my longest one is only about 25,000 words!

    Although I write "perverted" erotica for XNXX, I wouldn't want to use my XNXX name in posting on another site. I am basically a very good man with decency in my real life (sexual fantasies and writing do not make you a real life pervert) but I wouldn't want my family and friends to know about my secret fasntasy-sex pastime!

    actually I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I miscalculated the word count, it should be 150,000 words. Somehow I multiplied the actual count by 10. The estimate is based on the idea that the average word count per page is 250 (for a double spaced manuscript page) and the novel is about 600 pages.

    I was amazed before, but now I'm still impressed! That's a lot of words. I hope you don't balance your check book with that same math

    No I don't use the same math, the estimate was done in a rush (a euphoric rush I might add) I always double check the math in my check book.

    I'd get a euphoric rush too if I thought I had written over a million words!
    I saw my story get released today! One second it was validating, the next it was validated. Before I could go to it, it was already voted down. Hum, must have been that speed reader. I'm alright with people voting negative because the kind comments make up for the troll and make it feel better to add my stories. But, I have to wonder what the motivation might be?

    Oh, I come back so quickly with a theory. When I just went back, I see all the new stories are now gone and the ones there that have been there, remain! My paranoid mind tells me the writers of the remaining stories kick your story to the bottom with the first negative vote. My crazy side has escaped.

    Question Story ratings and the "Last 30 days" list

    Quote Originally Posted by Daddycums View Post

    ... the score on a story on this site tends to go down over time. ... For example, most of my stories were scoring in the high 80's and 90's in the first couple of weeks after being posted, and now they've all dropped to the 60's and 70's.
    Forgive me for going back to something posted some time ago (due to work overload, I've only been able to log in occasionally), but it chimes with something I've been wondering about a bit.

    My experience has been different from that mentioned by Daddycums. I posted most of my stories in May and June, and they started with ratings in the low to mid 70s, which was fine. Pressure of work after I came back from holiday in August & September meant I didn't check in often, but when I did I was really chuffed to see the ratings were rising.

    Frankly, I put that down to two things: (1) this thread - that being recommended on it meant that the kind of folk who appreciate time and care being taken over the writing were finding the stories more easily, and many of them were then giving a positive vote [so I was blowing big thank-you kisses to everyone in this direction, especially Don for starting this and keeping it moving & Daddycums for the regular summary lists], and (2) that if people liked one story they would probably go to your others as well, and I've actually been putting a comment at the end of my stories to nudge that along.

    So, yes, that's been lovely - I was really proud to have a story (Detention Sucks) that was for a while no. 1 in the 'Lesbian' category, and has stayed at no. 2 or no. 3 for the last four or five weeks ... and similarly the 'Girl Guide' story, further down that first page, has been rated around 91% for that long as well.

    Which brings me to my query (thanks for your patience!) ... how come neither of them have ever appeared on the 'Last 30 days' top-rated list, when for longer than that they have had higher ratings than many which appear on first part of that list????

    It's not so much that I mind (being still about the rating), it's that I just don't get it.

    luv to all from Lesley

    PS I've not been able to post stories for a while, but some new ones will be coming soon - I've had LOTS of ideas (the by-product of frustrating days, perhaps ) and several are partly done - now that work pressure is easing up, I'll get them finished and out there ...

    I'm glad somebody at least has had the opposite experience as me. I would hate to think that all stories on this site are doomed to drift slowly into obscurity, the ratings that start out so encouraging eventually dragging the stories down into the depths of some kind of writer's purgatory.

    Judging simply by my own experiences, I would say that the majority of writers on this site are decent people who just need a creative outlet for their sexual fantasies. I too would hate for my family to find out about my "hobby," so I try to keep a Chinese wall between Daddycums and my real self. I write non-erotic stories too (mostly science fiction/fantasy), but unfortunately I'm a little more paranoid than you, so I can't tell you where to find my non-erotic stories. I commend you for having the courage to share your "good" side with those of us who enjoy your "evil" side.

    Glad you are finding more time for important things, here!

    I agree with your two points. This link gives hope to your stories after they fall off the front page. Also, once we know you have good stories, we go look for them.
    People who take the time to look are more likely to vote up or not at all. I have to hate a story that is poorly written to vote neg. Most stories don't hold my interest long enough to get any vote.

    As far as your query, if you saw the post from my crazy side a few days ago, you know I know nothing! I think there are a few people who vote neg to every story they open. There are also people who look for my stories just to vote neg. And finally, there are people who vote down stories so they can keep their on the front page.

    I really don't understand it, but if you write well, and you do, the good people will find your stuff and vote it up.

    Lesley, any positive votes your stories got were deserved because of the sterling quality. We (the thread) may have called attention to you, but the wonderful quality of your stories is the bottom line. The only problem any of us have with you is that we need more stories from you. We (I) love you and your stories. Don

    Don, I know you said m|m wasn't your thing, but did you ever get around to giving mine a quick skim?

    No worries if you, heh - m|m isn't for everyone.

    Yes, I did check out one of your stories. It seemed to be well thought out and well written, but, again, I just couldn't get into it. A big request: if you ever write a story other than m/m, please let me know. In the mean time, I am the wrong person to recommend your stories. Even though I don't care for m/m, I wish you the best and hope you continue to write for us.

    Head to my stories page and check out 'The Rider'. There's a couple of chapters up. That's m/f.

    I've been very lucky with my acceptance here. My story Nora was a huge success for me, despite the trolls. I really felt the second chapter would do as well. Not so - it took the trolls only a couple of hours to bury it deep in the bowels of the new releases, so there were very few reads. Surprisingly, it has scored quite well. Those that found it, voted favorably. So in that case, my ratings did go up. I really think that those first few negative votes are so hard to overcome. It's too bad that something like that can so badly hurt a story.

    I just want to say, I'm proud to be a recommened writer, and even more proud to be in the company of so many talented people.

    Those who found it and voted favorably, looked for it and found it. We knew the story was coming out and were on the lookout for it.

    Thumbs up how this thread helps us all (IMHO)

    That's really nice and kind of you to say so, Don, but I know (as do many others) what a valuable support this thread gives to so many writers on the site. And I don't just mean by drawing us to the attention of readers important though that is, but also by creating a sense of community amongst the writers who want to execute their ideas with care and style.

    I think that it really helps that we have somewhere to talk to each other, somewhere to asks questions, somewhere to blow off steam when we need to.

    Let the trolls come - united we stand!!

    luv to all, Lesley
