Important CYS Invasion Assignment

20 days ago

So now that Infinite Story has been stirred from its grave thanks to the blood sacrifices, it’s time to establish more of a presence there.

What I mean specifically is signing up to the forums along with signing up to the main writing site and rating/commenting on stories. Assuming you haven’t do so already.

https://infinite-story.com/

https://forums.infinite-story.com/

The forums over there are a little weird as far as getting in and posting. If you’re having issues contact DEP (donteatpoop) or Sev (Severenz) through PMs. EDIT: Apparently the forums are no longer weird, or rather still weird, but easy to post on now.

As far as the main writing site, that’s easy enough to sign on to. Even rating/commenting is easier over there since you don’t even need to read.

And because there’s communism over there, all ratings are treated equally meaning this allows you lot to play a major role in determining what deserves to be on top and what deserves to be in the trash heap.

Of course my stories over there have less ratings over there than they do over here. (The dead aren’t very active in that department) so be sure to rate those all 10s first. 

Obviously you will get points for your patriotism.

Although you don't have to read the stories in order to rate them (and you've obviously already read all of Endmaster's stories, right?) just noting that there is a short, annoying delay the site forces in between rating one game and another. It's only like, a minute though, which shouldn't be enough to deter true patriotism.

Points for the patriotism sounds weird.  I am already there but I don't know who is from the site and who doesn't and feel like immoral rating without reading. But I could rate the ones I have read

Here is a normal IS story. Less than 1200 words split up among 48 pages. And I've seen far worse, posted routinely. I think it's a given that Endmaster's games deserve the highest rating anywhere, but particularly when they're the standouts among the chaff. If you aren't participating, that's fine, there's no need to inform everyone though. Let's go ahead and just keep the thread clear of people announcing it every time they don't do a thing. And we always give points for taking the effort to promote CYS stories on other sites.

Mission complete. Are there any stories on there you'd recommend reading? The two I randomly read from the Popular list weren't that great (Hall of Infinite Doors and Blind Date).

Important CYS Invasion Assignment

'Popular' apparently means most hits, not most ratings. So you get Pokemon, porn, Pokemon porn, and then HOID which was more of an experiment in opening up a story for the most co authors possible by letting them write anything. And I can think of a couple of decent ones, but more often than not even the better stories there are unfinished, and anyway it's better to direct your reading powers at the homeland, not the distant outpost.

Important CYS Invasion Assignment

Yeah "popular list" is just a measure how many hits a story has, the stories aren't necessarily all that great.

A better indication is to go by the "Top rated" and see what belongs there and what doesn't. At one point the top rated was a little more accurate, but there's been an influx of crap writers rating their own stories 10s over time.

Rated every Endmaster story a 10.

With all due respect high command, this assignment sorta sucks ass. Being in an old graveyard like that, surrounded by the corpses of a bunch of long dead users and the rusted out shells of old forum halls? It ain't exactly my cup of tea. At least we only have to worry about the ghouls and skeletons if we go too far in. I'm sure I'll get the hang of it eventually. Sergeant Chris of 11302, over and out.

DerPrussen enlisted out of patriotism. He wasn't here for the initial battles. He did follow the news of the conflict closely. CYStia wasn't a perfect home, but he doubted that he would actually like living in one at this point. It was better than the other options for sure.

"Another ten for the Dark Lord!" He anounced to no one in particular as he cast his vote into the awakening monument to the King of CYStia. Oddly enough the Prussian served the Queen of CYStia who was in no way related to the Dark Lord. The Elf Queen openly admits that the Dark Lord has better servants, which never bothered the old German. He moved on to the next monument.

Occupation forces are never as exciting as the initial push into hostile territory. It's a job that needs to be done. "10 points! If you don't read this, you'll stay a body pillow clutching weeb!" He muttered to the monument. The next monument he gave a wide berth. He'd read the tomb it was dedicated to before, he didn't care to go near it again. After he passed that one he heard shouting from the long dead forums.

"Back in my day, we waited months for a book, and it came in paperback! Then we needed to duel eachother for rights to the book. They were fair duels, overseen by a librarian. We loved our librarian. If we didn't, we couldn't duel for the books. So I trudged up the mountain to the library, fought for a book, then trudged back up the mountain back home. Elven magic I says. Laid on the road to the Library to make it uphill both ways." the rant is interupted by the sound of a growl and then a slap. An onlooker made the mistake of looking at IAP's bear/wife while he was talking. DerP continued on his way to the sound of some noob fighting for his life.

At the top, in EndMasters enlistment speach, he says we'll be paid in points. No medical covereage, no death benifits, no ammunition alotment, or weapons are issued. It is however a completely volunteer army.

It's kind of incredible how much more attractive IS has gotten to browse in just a few days, it just took Sev rearranging how stories are listed and putting more of End's on the main page where they belong. There's nice visible buttons for categories now and searching through your own story pages isn't so convoluted.

Patriotism mission accomplished! I rated all of your stories a 10 and checked out the forums. I haven't posted yet but I probably will soon. Let's rebuild this dead planet.

Well sir, I've seen my duty through. All of Endmaster's works have been rated a 10, I've posted in the graveyard they call a forum, and I've shot at least two dozen ghouls or skeletons, have it marked right here on my rifle for every kill I confirmed. If I'm ever needed again, you know where to find me... Unless you don't, then try and find Major Tim of 36D, he'll help you find me. Now, here's hoping I get that promotion. EDIT: "Achievement Unlocked: The Question Answered". Thank you End.

This seems like an abuse of power.

Important CYS Invasion Assignment

Seriously?

Out of all the things I've done since being an admin here THIS is what you whine about as far as power abuse?

Abuse of power would be telling everyone to rate my stories an 8 on THIS site or just deleting post and banning people for implying abuses of power in the first place.

Speaking of which, everyone go rate my stories an 8 on here, assuming you haven't already.

The forums over there are no longer a little weird as far as getting in and posting, Sev removed the need for mod approval, so just get in there and post. (End might want to edit his OP to mention that.) I'm about to start a sci fi story that will be open to the public, it's going to be designed so that anyone can just jump in and write a bit about whatever whenever they get the urge.

Rift Station: Open Worlds

Here's the open WIP I was talking about. It's sci fi, mostly about exploring strange new worlds but there's plenty of other directions to take it. Just go grab any link made by me and write something. (Read the intro page instructions for butting in on other people's pages.) I'd really like to see this thing get huge. There's a story called Hall of Infinite Doors that attempted something similar years ago and is still listed as the most popular story on the site just for the number of people clicking around in it, but we can do better. IS thread.

2) I'm still basically the only one posting.

3) Not a single one of you faggots have added a single page to Rift Station yet.
