BradinDvorak, The Expert Scrivener
art by ThemeFinland
But if you see me running down the street,
Say, “I wanna be your friend.”
Yeah, it’s a phrase I don’t say often enough—
Don’t want to scare or to offend.
Yeah, if my body’s a holy temple,
And my mind is the web I spin,
Yeah, there’s a feeling inside my insides,
But it just won’t let me in.
I step out through
The bathroom door,
Water running down my arms.
Do you know what happens to knights who dare oppose me? They’re soundly beaten, torn to shreds, reduced to mere ashes, utterly and completely obliterated. No one can defeat the great and mighty (and—dare I say—quite handsome) Knarr'ator. I’m the best, most awesomest dragon there ever is, was, and will be. And yet here you stand, just a character in my story, challenging me like the fool you are. If you think you stand a chance against me, you’ve got another think coming.
But by all means, go ahead and try.
It seems you’ve found yourself within
The troublesome affair
Of trekking through the timberland
To slay the dragon there.
They claim it a ferocious fiend;
However will you fare?

WHAT IS PROGRESS?
If you manage to sneak peek this thing, great; just don't rate or I'll
hunt you down and fucking kill you be sad.
Also, I recommend refreshing your cache (which can be done with Ctrl + F5, Cmd + Shift + R, Shift + Reload, usw.) on the title page.
ALSO, NICE BEARD, BUT THIS TEXT IS HARD-ISH TO READ.

No dragons. Like, at all.
You’re Kolo, a kobold dreadfully sick of your monotonous subterranean life. Your heart sings for adventure! ...Unsubterranean adventure! Now, your tribemates all laugh and call you stupid for this, but really, all that tells you is that they’re just close-minded sons-of-cloacae. Who needs ’em when you’ve got adventure?!
Draw for me, Trout! MS Paint me like one of your French kobolds!

I think that might be too specific to be especially useful. On the other hand, I wouldn't suggest a whole notes section for each page, because that's definitely too much. What about a tag system like what's currently implemented for pictures? That way each page can have its own unique metadata without being excessive.
Rich-text Editor Erases Images Redux on 6/17/2017 12:42:05 AM
Wanna finally get to the bottom of this. CKEditor, the rich-text editor, has an element whitelist. Any elements not on the list are filtered out when the editor loads, and it just so happens that images are not on the list. The function that loads the editor, CKEDITOR.replace(), has an object passed to it with additional configuration information; adding the following property to that object should prevent it from erasing images.
Any img tag, any attributes, any style. It's a bit of a catch-all; if stricter conditions are needed, this section of the CKEditor docs should be helpful.

You might wanna put a comma after "fear". It's a little ambiguous otherwise.

I was asked to reply to this.

Could be when a story's rating count hasn't been calculated yet (when it just says "based on ratings", since that apparently happens in intervals. I think it'd make sense that trying to turn a nonexistent value into an integer and compare it with ten would throw an error.

Yeah; a story was published recently and the sections have issues when a story has fewer than 10 ratings. Once it gets a few more ratings (or unpublished), it should be fine again.
Copy and Pasting Script on 6/6/2017 4:16:55 PM
Paste with the shortcut Ctrl+Shift+V or click the "source" button and paste it in there. If any HTML formatting gets in between the code, it won't work; using either of these methods should ensure that the text is pasted without formatting.

Still there, if you know where to look.
