Hey my name is Rory and it's my first day on this site. I just wanted to make this post because I've been lurking on this site for a couple hours now trying to get used to the interface and I'm still a bit confused on everything but from what I've read it's best to start here by reading the most popular stories and a work by EndMaster. I'd love to have a conversation with you guys so HMU anytime. We can talk about animals or books or movies or music lol. I know a lot about music so we can talk about your favorite band and I'll know them. Thanks and I'm really, really excited to be a member of this community!

That she is. My favorite song is probably The Diamond Sea. Album is a toss-up between Daydream Nation and Dirty. While not an album, their self titled EP is also pretty good. What's your favorite band?

My favorite band is Duster. And one of my most fav albums of all time, Stratosphere, is by them. You've gotta check it out if you haven't yet!

I've definitely heard something by Duster before but I'm not very knowledgeable about them. I remember thinking some songs I heard reminded me a bit of My Bloody Valentine or Chapterhouse or something like that. Interesting choice.

I feel like this is one of those cases when trying to understand is not in our best interests.

I'm just going to strongly suggest you guys don't do this kind of thing outside of this thread. I'm seeing a few other names pop up and for now I'm just going to generously assume you're all different people and hope you and your friends have fun with the site. But this happens a lot and it seems like there's always one person in the group that screws things up for everyone else tied to the same IP.

What kind of thing? All I did was call him Miyu because his avatar was a manga character named Miyu. We aren't the same people and we have totally different IPs. Sorry if this question is annoying but I just want to know what I'm doing wrong because I'm unsure of what I even did and I want to know so I can avoid doing it in the future. I really don't want to get banned and it seems it's pretty easy to get banned in this community. Thanks

Welcome welcome, I'm pretty new here myself and I can recommend that you take your time and explore around a bit. There's plenty to read, but I think you're already fairly familiar with this.

Welcome. Here's my own free, unsolicited advice:

People value branching stories here. That's a bit hard for me because I like to tell a particular narrative, but it's a habit I'm working on (Or would be working on if I wasn't a pathetic lazy sob who never finishes anything, and then takes down high rated stories to "fix them" and then never fixes and republishes them). But yeah, make sure there are lots of possibilities for a reader to choose from in whatever you publish — and make sure they all get some work. No one likes half-assed, bullshit endings that are put in just to take up space.

Also, unless you're being ironic, people do not like storygames that obviously look like the author didn't put any work into them. If it isn't your best, at least make it funny.

But yeah, to summarize, finish your storygames (don't be like the rest of us lazy slobs). Read and rate lots of storygames, too. But whatever you do, don't get emo. The sharks will feast and you'll cry and bitch and then get banned after everyone dunks on you. This is a quality of this site, by the way, not a flaw.
