    Basics steps to post a story on sexstoriescom:

    - First of all, you must have an account on the forum.
    - Once your account is created, you can go to sexstories.com.
    - If you already have an account, you just have to login to sexstories.com with the same login information.
    - Now, there's a new menu at the left called "Account":

    [​IMG]


    - Important note: first, you should write and save your story on your computer (on a txt file or a word file, no matter the text editor you used) before posting it. There's a server timeout. If you spend too much time writing your stories into our system, you will be disconnected from your session, and your story will never be saved. The best solution is to copy/paste your work from the file saved into your computer.

    - To post a new story, just click on "New story".
    Little explanation about "Characters Count": your story must have at least 5000 characters. After few years, we realized that readers generally prefer long stories with many description...

    At the bottom of the page, there's a box called "Publishing".
    - Publish your story: your story will be online after validation (shouldn't be longer then 48 hours).
    - Continue editing: your story is on "edit mode". When you think your story is ready, you can change it to "Publish your story" to see your work online.

    - "Your stories":

    [​IMG]
    On the screen capture below you can see the 3 modes of a story:
    - Validated: for an online story. If you click on "View", you can see the story with all comments made on it.
    - Edit mode: for a story in edit mode, if you have choosen "Continue editing" from the "New story" page. You can make every modification as you want. When you think your story is ready to be online, you can change this mode by cliking on "Edit" and change the box at the bottom of the page to "Publish your story". You can also delete it if you want.

    For every stories listed on this page, you have some statistics like the number of comments, reads and rate...


    We are working on deleting spam from sexstories.com. If you find any, you can use the report button next to the story or post the link to the story under this thread and we will delete it. Please note that new site rules state no characters included in something sexual under the age of 18. Also remember no contact info, advertising or spam in stories.

    After I write a story can I comment images to go along with it? Or can you include images at all?

      As soon the pictures will be posted on free sites (instagram, imgur...) it is ok. Even better would be if you could just upload the pictures here in your profile on forum and then include the link in your story. When somebody will click the link, picture has to display- no downloading, no redirections...
      You might also to post some music video (youtube, vimeo) or sex video (xnxx, xvideos) or just music.
      If you will be not sure, you can PM me the link before...

    I've been using this site for quite some time, and I've seen some changes recently that have me a little confused, you used to post stories in order with the newest stories at the top of an author's list, but now the generally post newest at the bottom with no particular order from day to day, I'm curious how the stories are organized now, and if you could possibly list them with the newest stories in a consistent location on the author lists, either newest at the top or bottom wouldn't matter to me, it just seems like it's become quite a hassle to figure out what the newest story is from a particular author without using the search function

    while we're talking about updating/upgrading/fixing the site
    can we have a more powerful/defined search function? example, alot of stories have multiple 'genres' YET you can only choose ONE theme and ONE genre, when in reality the stories have MULTIPLE tags (i.e multiple genres)

    and whats awesome is the stories seem to be posted ON the site itself i.e the text is on the site not some file etc. So can we have a search function that can search key words WITHIN the stories? I found a story i liked and read years ago and been ripping my hair out trying to look for it :S

      It's been my experience that readers pay more attention to the tags, than to the genre.

    I'm okay with one genre as they are pretty broad.

    I think you can, at least to some degree, search by keyword. There are a few favorite terms and when I search those, I get stories that have them in the text.

    Being able to search by strings and not just boolean would be a plus. That way you could type a phrase in quotes and stories with THAT phrase would be returned.

    All in all, as a labor of love, this site is pretty good.

    hi :)
    what do you mean 'genre' is pretty broad? you mean its weak in its search function and comes with broad results? Isn't that more of a option to have more then one?
    Look up anything and you get multiple tags shown under the story, example: Cum Swallowing, Group Sex, First Time, Oral Sex. These are tags (tags = genre) and you can only choose one 'genre'
    i've Typed all these in the keywords and can't find my story. Either the search function is weak or for some reason the story was removed..

    Okay, I think I see what you're saying. When I wrote they were broad, I meant as a general category, I.E. "True Story".

    Could use an option for multiple themes in my opinion.

    As far as the search function goes, if I type in a term, the stories returned will have it in the body of the text. I've never searched for tags specifically, so I can't speak to that. I do know it doesn't take strings so I can't search for a favorite phrase.

    Hope I clarified my response a little better.

    So no chance of an explanation, apology, or response to those of us thinking the state of affairs here is unacceptable and not worth the bother? To those of us looking for somewhere else to post since it's so bad here? Nothing?

    I realize you might be a volunteer, i don't know. Can you could forward these complaints to someone who cares? Someone who might respond?

      Firstly you should thank to all the writers who keep posting underage stories repetitively for the stories validation. Secondly I apologize for the last 2 weeks of lack of validation, I was in hospital. Since now the validation will take again up to 24 hours...

    I've still got one stuck on edit more. I added it the same time as two others which went through earlier in the week. (Which took a week to get posted.)

    Of course it could be that you forgot to publish the story, and its sitting in edit mode. There's no way to tell if a story is in edit mode or in the moderation queue. I won't call this a bad design, as it obviously wasn't designed to do this. But it definitely needs "in queue" indication.

    @Hypocrites @astro2 It is a little known fact that google is a much better way to search the stories here. Use advanced search, plug in the site, search terms (or text) and see what you come up with.

    Love the stories I read here. Navigations to stories could be easier though. Maybe add tags that can be stacked for more accuracy in finding the right story for the current mood instead of just one big pile of stories.

    a feature i would like to see is a place to suggest new tags such as class. (i know there is already school but class indicates that the whole class is involved, like in darkholme academy where the whole school is involved. I would like to find more stories like that one.)

    i also would like a grammer checker to be installed to the editor. I hate always having to read around bad spelling and grammer.

    I think thre should be a google custom search on this site as it would be nice to have a more advanced search engine. I know that those are free. if not available on here, what was said above was people wanted to search multiple tags at once. Things oike they want astory tagged both school and incest, they could put both in the search.
     
    1. ILoveMyJob
      The grammar checker is great idea. We are doing some improvements here on forum right now but we are planning also improve sexstories.com...

    Hey I have written 2 sex stories and it has been 2 days since I clicked on publish story in the edit menu. Today I wrote the second story and it also shows edit mode though I selected 'Publish your story'
    It still shows edit mode under status. Is it meant to be that way? Or am I forgetting something. My story is of more than 5000 characters and I filled all the blanks.
    If there is some problem. I hope it gets rectified quickly.
    Thankyou.
     
    1. ILoveMyJob
      Hello, I apologize for the long delay of the validation. Latest tomorrow will be all stories validated.

    New stories on the sex stories site are reviewed before publication. The process can take up to a week, more with the recent holidays. Don't re-submit your stuff, or you'll go to the back of the line. Patience is a virtue.
