If any "normal" member starts noticing a bunch of shit stories popping up, blame this class. (I see Thara's already taken steps to mocking them)
Anyway, probably going to be a game of wackamole for awhile. With any luck, it'll be like last time and we'll get one story out of 30 that's a solid "4."
Jesus, Mizal. Calm down. If anything, you should be hired as the site's bodyguard. If I were some loser who couldn't write, and I came on here and talked to you, I'd sell my computer on Ebay. Actually..no, this is good. Let's get mizal as the 'bodyguard' to scare off 10 year olds.
I missed all of the now missing ones too. :(
Click the orange square icon to the right of Newly Created Storygames. It'll work even when the normal link glitches.
idk, I've seen that said on the forums several times before. Most of it is in the Bugs section though. I find it very helpful to say the least.
I just unpublished them so far and it was more than six and they were locking out fantasy and modern as well. Deletions will eventually happen most likely though.
Wonderboy just won the prize of deletion and banning so far, but there may be more winners in the future. Stay tuned!
It sounds like someone should make a site just for this purpose. I mean, from the sounds of things, every so often the site gets a bunch of students. Since, as you said, it's hardly fair to either party, having them here isn't ideal.
Unless it's a lesson in making someone tough against harsh criticism; in that we seem to be uniquely qualified. I use the term 'we' rather loosely, of coursre.
I dunno, that Wonder kid messaged me personally calling me a hoe. I laughed a bit at that then I wondered which brilliant teacher cooked up this scheme this time.
You would have to blame all teachers leading up to the 'offending' teacher. The students didn't suddenly get that 'dumb' the moment they hit the Xth grade. Just sayin'.
More hate to spread around, eh?
I can sense your willingness to help, but the thing is they're idiots. All they will think about once they read your posts here is you're a bitch. They'll just ignore all your attempts to help because again, they're too dumb to understand. And from future teacher's point of view this is just an example of bad classroom management. The first thing that a teacher should check when he/she/it's trying to make his/her/it's student's projects available for public viewing is the place where they are gonna be putting up those projects, and this place... is just a bit too child-unfriendly (i mean with the language, violence and sexual stuff you will see on the stories and sometimes, on the forums too this site should be rated like R18 lol). And they're already on the 8th grade, if they're still bad with their grammar then that means their foundations are bad which means the teachers from grades 1-3 are to be blamed, though I'm not excluding this teacher as well. If I'll ever make a project similar to what this teacher did I will never send my students to this website lol its like you're just asking to be savagely ripped apart by the site's members. Well not all of us, but still.
My comment was more directed at Bucky's assessment of you than how you were actually handling the situation. Just to clarify.
Nah, fuck that, the site standards are shockingly low, I trust they can put something out to meet those standards. If there's any Steve Lite's amongst this group, we'll find them, and if not, trial by fire works.
Plus, the only story left standing was pretty good, for what the others are.
Ah, all of you are just varying degrees of idiots, really, so nothing new there.
It's possible there were more of them that weren't logged in at the moment I checked, but his IP isn't matching he rest of the class.
In any case, nothing of value was lost.
Nooo! I missed this group of free points. I check the site constantly, but it's always the few hours I'm not checking. Dang it.
How often does this happen? i feel like an idiot for asking, but this is the first 'class rush' I've been a part of.
E: To be clear, how often do class projects happen?
At least once a year it seems.
Okay, good. I got worried for a second.
Actually, this would probably be a better place for a class to submit their CYOA projects.
The editor is easier to use, collaboration is unlimited, it’s quiet and nobody there is going to care what gets submitted. Probably could use some new stories there anyway. (Shit, the last story created there was September of last year)
Apparently Sev just updated the layout of Infinite Story again. Lol.
Truly "What is dead may never die."
EDIT: He's even written this on the front page : "Teachers, tell us how we can make this better for use in your classes."
See, this is the perfect place to send all these class projects now.
Hey guys, I am the teacher here I take full blame and responsibility for this intrusion into your website. Feel free to throw the rotten tomatoes here. I DO blame myself for not more thoroughly vetting the hosting domain for my students' work. EndMaster, If you would simply let the stories remain until the end of the day today (I will read and grade all of them by then), THEN delete them, I would be eternally grateful. They will all be posted by then as well, so you won't have to play wack-a-mole from here out. Everyone else, enjoy a few more free points! Thank you for telling me about this other website that I can use in the future. I will not darken your shores ever again.
P.s. As much as your fairly harsh (though I will not argue with it's legitimacy in some cases) criticism is, for the most part, it HAS been a lesson in accepting rough critiques. I just want to share that EVERY single positive comment has meant the world to my kids. It's a ray of cliched hope in what is a black-as-your-hearts sky. So those of you who have found it in your hearts not to totally crush these kids' egos, I appreciate it.
I never knew 8th graders could apparently be so horrible in things such as grammar and punctuation.
Ummm, I would recommend teaching them a bit more before sending them out into the proverbial wilderness with essentially nothing but an imaginary fishing net in one hand, and a stick in the other. :)
Well this is a little too late now seeing as I deleted everything and just banned you. The only story that I left up was the Cries one. (They should get an A)
In the future, you'll probably want to go to Infinite Story to do this. It's more suited to this sort of thing.
Honestly while this sort of thing was annoying, there was a general attitude of "riding it out." Wasn't until several of the students started spamming and harassing other members of the site that this escalated.
You actually deleted them instead of unpublishing? Oh.
Utena, you could have the students write a paper/self-reflection detailing how things went. idk.
I can imagine most are going to start with "Some asshole called EndMaster deleted my story."
A few of these students seem to be online right now..
Giving some of them about a day or so to get their shit together since at least one of the new stories is in that 3 range.
The rest are either under that or still "?"
This game was created by two 8th grade girls in their composition class and it is their first attempt at a ChooseYourOwnAdventure Story. Please give helpful feedback and comments to show these girls that their efforts are appreciated, as well as how to improve their game and writing. Great game, girls!

I think I've seen that exact comment on another storygame.
Either just a lazy copy/paste white knight, or this class consists of nothing but females. All girls' school perhaps.
Lazy copy/paste but it gives me the warm and fuzzies to see them all unifying and showing solidarity like this. One of their comments even referenced Bucky.
Yeah, I think so too. UtenaTenjou has one unpublished "storygame" called "Puzzler", and the description reads "Basic "Game" example for composition students."
Pfft, none of them have even beaten this one yet.
Hurray, free points!
Anyway, I'm very entertained by your comments. You seem to be getting more and more frustrated as you review these. :)
Yes, Ogre's opinion that you should just ignore the children is wrong, because he's ignored the children! Check mate, Ogre, your lack of hypocrisy is bullshit!
@UtenaTenjou what have we done to deserve this
Congrats on 3000 x'D
Oh. So that's what happened.
I could publish my shitty fanfiction while this is going on and probably get a solid 4 for having good grammar! :D
I just read all the stories in a few minutes.
What are these. I think I saw like...2 stories that were decent and everything else just...
Please don't tell me I was ever like this.
If anyone is bothering to keep track, let me know which stories have broken/dead links since those will get eventually deleted regardless of what rating they hold.
The avatar now matches you completely.
Needs more fire. And attitude.
I was just telling her in the Villain Lair, the pic looks similar to the one in this thread
Her dark elf has a more purplish hue and is a bit "softer" though.
I can totally draw stick figures. I got this.
I've never wanted to explain the difference between your and you're to someone more badly than right now.
So many free points, such little time.
This is not a test. This is your friendly admin announcing the commencement of the CYS Purge sanctioned by said friendly admin.
Deletion of stories of rank 2.5 or lower, or have broken/dead links have been targeted for elimination during the Purge. All other stories are safe. Nobody has been granted immunity from the Purge and all will be affected.
Commencing at sometime later today, any and all excuses for shitty stories will be ignored, begging and pleading will be ignored, rational arguments and logic will be ignored. Continue to bother the friendly admin and YOU will be ignored AND purged as well. The Purge will continue until the site has been sufficiently cleansed based on the whims of friendly admin.
Blessed by the New Admin Regime, making CYS great again. If you acknowledge any gods, start praying now.
LoL this is like something i'd hear from a radio when I'm on the Ground Zero world setting.
Ug, there's even more. Well, let's reap what the middle schoolers have sown and receive our points.
I never was paying much attention to the WC invasion when I was ghosting on this site, but I suppose something like this story's ratings must've been common.
Oh dear, they also appear to be rating and commenting on these. It's a Wacky Classroom invasion! :)
EDIT: There's so many WC (Wacky Classroom) storygames that they pushed off all of our stuff from the newly published section.
Utena is just so rude, ignoring all of these taggings from prominent CYS members, copy and pasting virtually the same comment on multiple stories. Now I know where the students get their behavior from that they seem to display in DM's. But I can't say that this wild ride isn't wholly enjoyable.
Already deleted several stories below the 2.5 mark or with dead/broken links. I imagine there will be more to come since some are just hanging on at that 2.6 mark.
Then there are the new ones with question marks, so it's a wait and see with those still.
Those are being rated WC style unfortunately.
At this point I think this is just the work of Ryder and some rogue Cog members who learned of the threads made about them. Usually this thing is just a day and that's it, and then the teacher eventually gets the point or something and then gets pissy at Sent about things. Some of these stories on the other hand are just so broken and appalling to play... It has to be deliberate, right?
Now they're launching assaults on Bucky and he has earned their ire. His stories are being physically attacked and rammed with the headbutts of those that are apparently vengeful middle schoolers.
Oh Purge extension is coming.
Oh, is this class from West Virginia? For some reason, I feel like we're dealing with an army of hillbillies.
I've been put through worse abuse, no worries. I'm feeding off all of the negative energy and harnessing it be channeled into my budding witchcraft.
What type of harnesser are you using? It's time I got a new one, any suggestions?
Well Bucky's It's Raining Again is currently getting a lot of attention. This one was one of the less spammy comments.
I personally did not like this and I would not recommend this to anything. I feel attacked tbh.

EDIT: Banned for spamming Bucky's story with comments.
Due to fucktard resistance, the Purge has been extended to:
Shitty stories below the 3.0 threshold.
The authors of said shitty stories and spammy butthurt comments
That is all.
I did. Only Cries remains. (Probably literally in some cases)
No, I deleted ALL of their shit. Unpublishing went out the window as soon as they started attacking the place.
Seriously, I was in no mood for spam and harassment on the members here today.
Which one is the teacher?
UtenaTenjou is the teacher.
Mine is at a 2.61..... I thought I was safe from the 2.5 purge.
Could my story just be unpublished? I may come back to it at a later date. If not that's fine I will just work on a different story.
Honestly it got to the point where I was just focused on the "Dumb Ass Class of 2018."
Anyway, probably would be a good idea if you just went ahead and unpublished it though since it's heading that way anyway.
Ah, thanks, will do!
They're spamming his It's Raining story with the US Constitution in subhuman driveby guest mode. Lol.
I mean considering we've had people making over 100 alts in one night, this isn't anything new really.
Mizal, we only started spamming after you banned our accounts and deleted our stories for no reason. Also maybe you could have a talk with me to help me and my class understand instead of immediately deleting and banning.
Why didn’t you just ban the specific people instead of banning almost our entire class :/
You were annoying and were spamming and trolling as a group. You may have been using school computers as well which means that your IP (which is like an online fingerprint) would have been the same for the whole class. One bad apple, in this case, does cause the entire barrel to rot.
That's just one of... idk, forty-two reasons.
Thank you. I will say that a lot (not all) but a lot of kids aren’t aware of the consequences of their actions. Feel free to ban any excessive spammers. Please just try to keep the non-idiot kids in mind. Thank you. -An Able Minded Child
I don't know why people started clubbing babies or whatever the fuck went on, but this seems too stupid for even me to get in on.
I'm good, thanks. Never been a fan of cheese-flavored crisps.
Hahaha. your right. we should’ve used a free, public website that everyone on the internet is allowed to use... oh wait.
sorry anyway though, we all completely understand that you don’t have the choice to just NOT read our stories...oh wait.
Actually, we were going to let all of your stories stay (until their ratings would've/could've went below site standards and would've been unpublished as we always do). Yours were taken down simply because some of your people started spamming and trolling.
It's not as if you all could've not trolled, spammed, published storygames below site standards, and verbally attacked some of our members... oh wait.
Small child, for god's sake, stop trying to fight the site scum, it won't work out well for you. Instead, maybe just ignore them, write something better than they can do, which isn't hard, and help me win the argument that this new generation is better than the old people.
The new generation is shit.
The old generations were also shit.
Humans are shit, so....yeah.
Pffh, that faggotry is for emos, edgelords and suicide chaos. Humans are the best. I came from them, obviously, but we're fucking hairless monkeys who figured out how to leave the Earth, walk around and another fucking body, and come back, with brains composed to bash animals to death and eat them. We've written some of the greatest literary works and poetry with language devised to tell other ape-creatures where the food is. We've managed to take over a fucking planet with such success that we've spread to every fucking bit of it, raping our natural predators to the point where many of them are extinct or only live on in our cages, barely surviving only because we decide they should.
But we also created things like fidget spinners. look me in the eyes and tell me we benefited from that. Also, pollution and stuff, killing the ecosystem, blah blah blah.
We created a device to help kids with ADHD. Yeah, we did benefit from them. I think the best argument you're making that humans are shitty is that you exist, given that you look at a product like fidget spinners that were made to help people with ADHD and amuse people, and you have the balls to to deem that as non-beneficial.
Oh, and in regards to the environment, it was going to be destroyed by the sun anyway eventually. I think it's worth it that a sentient species got to live here and create the art, wonder and joy that it did, before the universe snuffs itself out anyway.
Well someone has a chip on their shoulder.
Do I? I don't think my species is shitty, you're a twat who does, and insults a toy meant to help people with ADHD.
Good response. Alright, I'll give you this much. Some humans are shitty, and I assume it's types like you that are the rotten apples that cause things like people eating tide pods.
If that's what you wanna take away. Sure. Any more insults for me before you go?
What, "you are what's wrong with man" isn't good enough? OK.
You're sub-standard scum. I don't like you. I doubt anyone here likes you. You're the kind of depressed, self-hating fuck who grows up in a 1st world country with food, clean water, a warm bed, and still whines and bitches about how hard life is and how awful humans are. Your unhappiness and lack of satisfaction with your pathetic life is entirely your own fault, and I personally find it despicable that you've squandered the gifts you've received, and think you should kill yourself rather than deprive the world of resources that we could use for someone who gives a fuck.
You don't like me? Out of that entire paragraph, plus all the stuff before, THAT sentence is the most insulting thing I've ever heard.
Seems like everyone's gone quiet now. I'll go back to writing.
Was... was that your attempt at a comeback? That my opinion matters to you that much, whilst you've come to terms with the fact you're objectively fucking awful?
Oh please. ADHD?!? Really is that the best you can come up with? it’s evident that this site was made for low class, nobody’s with no life. Hit us again with some “stupid school project”. sorry but did you go to a school that was 20,000 dollars a year? No i don’t think so, because if you did you would have a life and not spend all day on a computer doing nothing except interacting with other low class nobodies.
Uh... yeah, that's why they were designed. They're still usually advertised as such. There's debate as to whether they're effective, but that's it.
Anyhow, I didn't go to a school that cost 20,000 dollars a year, I went to public school. I think it's fucking despicable that you find that as a point of pride, you fucking posh cunt. The fact that you're proud of that is obvious that you have nothing else going on. Fuck you, you rich cunt.
Anyhow, I do have a life, I have a job selling Asian food, I'm studying law at university, I sail a lot and I teach it, I also spend a lot of time with my mates. Writing's also a big hobby, I'm a big fan of that. Oh, and I'm trying to get better at playing pool. So if you were wondering, that's what I so.
Edit: Oh, and I didn't do anything to your school project, I left one nice comment and had no other interaction with you until now, when I've learnt you're scum.
it’s not about just needing to ignore them. It’s about the fact that most of them are 30 year old men living in their moms basement complaining about a ton of FOURTEEN YEAR OLDS stories. It was a school project. this site doesn’t only belong to you, how were we supposed to know that we were going to get lash back. It’s was a school project that we all worked on for weeks Could you seriously not be patient for what, LIKE 1 MORE DAY?! It’s incredibly rude and disrespectful. If you don’t want to share this FREE, PUBLIC site then create your own. but this is a site for everyone. some people have lives outside of this website.
Well actually, the main scumfucks are a married adult with a job and his own home, some old bitch with a job and her own home, some married fuckwit in college with his own home and various other people like that.
In regards to you working hard, did you? Like, seriously? Becuase if you're fourteen, and worked on those for weeks, those are shockingly bad.
Anyhow, the "lives outside of this website" point is a silly one. So does everyone else here. We all have jobs, or education, and hobbies, and friends, and a lot going on. We just have this as a hobby, the same way you have whatever shitty use of your time you have.
Parks are free and public, but you'll still be arrested for disturbing the peace if you do it annoyingly enouph.
But you don’t get arrested for being annoying, you get arrested for breaking the law. And you don’t arrest everyone in the park you arrest the ones breaking the law. If you don’t like it go build your own PRIVATE park. But you don’t control this PUBLIC “park”
Being annoying is breaking the law in that case, so yeah, you get arrested for being annoying.
We do. It's been explicitly, and helpfully stated by the administration in the Help and Info section that publishing is a privilege here, not a right. We reserve the right to delete what's been written and mock it accordingly if it reads like cock. Freedom of speech, after all. We just don't have to put up with accounts that openly harrass people we like, or stories that are shit.
I have to agree on this point.
Joke’s on you, I deleted them without even reading them. Lolz!
And on the year or so anniversary after the "School mode" thing was accepted as a feature, nobody's so much as submitted an article to the teachers in warning! Somebody ought to actually do something about the vermintide or we're just gonna be doomed to repeat these purges over and over again!
I sure hope so, this one has been the best one yet!
You were the ones who ruined an entire project for a group of 8th graders. I thought children were supposed to be taught how to share their toys. Maybe it’s different across the pond though. Maybe some countries just don’t care about anyone but them selves.
Nah, we just care about reading stories as well as writing them. Considering there are rewards and reasons to read most or all of the stories on the site, we consider it reasonable to try and make the experience of reading more as crap-free as possible.
Across the pond? Where the fuck are you from? Because if it's America, most of the site is, and if it's across the pond either direction, we've members from there.
"Across the pond?"
I do believe most of the members here are US based (I'm not, personally) and seeing as how one of your classmates (might have been yourself, I wasn't paying too much attention to whomever it was that decided not going to a 20K-a-year middle/secondary school made one"scum") stated their tuition was in dollars, I'm pretty sure that puts you all on the same side of the "pond".
On a side note: I thought referring to the Atlantic as "The pond" was a British thing?
There’s a certain point where you need to stand back and realize that all you’re doing is butchering kids on a public forum and for what? Writing stories that we put a lot of thought into? While they might seem like trash to you guys the “best writers on planet Earth”, we put effort into these. And sure you might argue that these had no effort put into them and maybe you’re right. But how could they, when they know their grades are on the line?(Also were learning to write and maybe you should leave the criticism to the one with the teaching degree) One of the administrators brought a good point. Mizal stated that we were trolling Bucky, but for that, I say if he accused us of having a dramatic reaction, why can’t he be the bigger one and take the trolling?(Like you said you are married adults so I would HOPE you could take it instead of lashing out like a child) I’m not in writing class at the moment but I can’t stand by and watch as all my colleagues crash in burning flames. Next time this happens I recommend you don't delete the work but just unpublish it so at least we can get a grade for the work we have done.
Well if they put no effort into them, they yeah, they definitely could've, ESPECIALLY if their grade counts. I mean, I'm just annoyed I had to be brought into this, because all I said was one nice thing in a comment, before whichever one of you fuckwits insulted me for not paying 20k a year for a shitty school.
Anyhow, fuck being the bigger man. This is a tragedy for you guys as apparently you wasted a bunch of time for nothing, but I'm sure Bucky and the others are super amused by all this, so doing this in the future only hurts you guys for trolling him.
"crash in burning flames" - the expression is actually "crash and burn in flames".
However seeing as you're part of a generation where "Your point is mute" and "take it for granite" seem to be acceptable butcherings of established expressions, I'll not judge you too harshly.
You can keep trying to block mr from commenting but that doesn’t stop me. Is that your biggest defense?? Can you really not take fault and say what you did was wrong??
You insulted me for not being a privileged fuck and working for what I've done, because I didn't get to go to private school, when I didn't do anything to your shitty posh jerk-off classmates. Maybe that lack of work ethic is why I write good stuff, and you guys mostly wrote dog shit. No offense to the kids in your class who aren't entitled fuckwits like yourself, of course.
THANK YOU!! These little kids are sooooo annoying
Don't know who you are, but you're welcome.
Maybe. Who knows, really?
Certainly a brand new account.
Don't know who you are either, mate.
Bit of a lurker, been offline a month, had been on for a couple months before that. Came for the storygames, stayed for the forums.
Just like a lot of us.
Knock yourself out kid. You'll just be one of many fucktards that keeps making over a 100 alts and all of them continuing to be retarded.
Obviously you're not a learning animal and that 20,000 dollar education is going to real good use. Lol.
Everything we did was just fine. If you'd taken a bit to actually study the site you were entering, maybe you would have a better idea of our policies. It might be public property, but you can't go have a picnic on the borders of a country and then get upset at border control splitting you up. There were rules in place you didn't read, that doesn't put them in the wrong.
@Mcarmany @riant @turnerrian
On this site, it doesn't matter if you're a kid or an adult. Everyone should have a basic understanding of the English language enough to make a game that won't get unpublished. I've known several people on this site where English is their second or even third language and still make a pretty awesome game. Sure, there's mistakes, and there's grammar errors and spelling errors.
But there's a line between acceptable errors where the story is still good, and complete shit. Excuse the language.
Here is a list of minimum site standards, quite easy to find by yourself if you had bothered to look.
What I'd like to highlight there as meeting the criteria for unpublishing:
If your games did not meet the minimum site standards, then you should not have published them. Instead don't publish them, and instead link to it on sneak preview, like this. You'll note that you can fully play it as if it was published, but it actually isn't published right now. That's for bug testing and asking for opinions and such. This is something you should have done instead of publishing, especially since your grade rested on it.
Aside from that, your teacher was tagged multiple times and was given warnings throughout the entire process about what was going to happen. We gave her a chance to respond and ask for us to wait. She did not request for us to wait until after they were already gone. Once something is deleted, it's deleted. She should have requested sooner, or better yet, graded them without having them published as I mentioned above.
I don't blame you, as the students of her class, for those mistakes. She's already offered to take the blame for not looking through the site more thoroughly before making it a class project.
Now look, I originally discovered this site due to a 7th grade class project a few years ago (I'm still in school now). There are ways to properly do it, and we're fine and open to class projects using this site when they do it the proper way. We do have standards, but most are easy to fulfill if you take time and put effort into it and have basic knowledge of how to write. I actually failed most of my English classes, and the class that I joined this site with as a language arts help class for those that're behind, yet I still manage to have a story up that's a high 4/8 while only putting in about 2 weeks of actual writing. It's not the best, but it's not the worst either. Honestly, it only has 15 payable pages, I just had to put in another 5 blank inaccessible pages to meet the minimum publish standards. ^^' Shhhh.
So if someone like me - who fails my classes, still in school, and barely meets minimum publishing requirements - can get a story that's a high 4/8 rating, then you could've easily done better. And if you couldn't, well, I think your school is shit.
Edit: Wups, seems I'm a bit late, sorry. Started typing this up while everyone was actively discussing it, paused to go grab food.
You are right. We did break the rules. We didn’t know them. In my peers and my defense, we weren’t posting these for everyone else, we posted them because it was for a grade(which is probably against the rules anyway). We were all very defensive because we lost all of our hard work. And because as children, we are not used to getting such harsh feedback from people who are older than us. You are right nonetheless. If you know of anyway to get our stories back, it would be amazing. Thank you
If you're that determined, it might be here somewhere.
I'm not sure though.
It would probably take less time going through and just retype them instead of look through that for them, assuming they're even there in the first place.
That is correct.
Assuming I'm converting currencies correctly, that's about how much I earn in my 48-72 hour a week job, after tax.
I think their parents need to seriously reconsider where they're sending their kids.
EDIT: I mean annually. God I wish I earned that a week.
I'll let you know when I'm not at work, this week is one of those 60 hour night shift weeks.
You say "working" - I've spent most of my shifts this week either: reading, here on CYS, browsing various airsoft and tech news parts of the internet I can access via the work computer, or having short naps. (such is the joy of corporate security night shifts)
All in all, of the 60 hours im "at work" this week, i expect to have been "working" for around 6 of them.
Goddamn, BZ's coming in hot from fucking no where.
"There’s a certain point where you need to stand back and realize that all you’re doing is butchering kids on a public forum"
This is literally everyday for this place. Lol.
I like how they said that as if it's something that shouldn't be done.
After all, it wasn't as if the butchering was without merit.
Hey, any chance we can keep this thread and not delete anything else in it? I want it preserved in case I have to show to my teacher what not to do and why. He's very incessant on publishing everything even if it's crap, with the mindset of 'perhaps something gold with fall through'. He's been eyeing the site lately, and I'm afraid he might make a class project out of it too.
I haven't bothered deleting anything save for the first couple times the class was complaining. I've been leaving them up now.
Someone still might want to archive this though.
We... We do have articles about this kind of thing too now... Just saying... *Sniff*
Yeah, Sentinel wrote an article in response to this whole shitstorm.
Can you recommend articles for commendation?
Cause that one deserves it.
Nah, articles just give an automatic 10 points to the author when accepted.
I was telling Sent, he got really lucky with submitting an article in the first place since the article submission thing around here is flaky and half of the time it doesn't work right.
Well that's a shame.
Bit of an oversight almost, like Mizal said, seems like it should be worth more.
Maybe include this article in the CYS welcome message in the future, with a heading like 'if you would like to use Chooseyourstory.com for a class project, please read the following information'? It might help prevent a situation like this in the future.
Man, this is a fun read.
It's had me in stitches for the last three hours.
I haven't had this much fun at work since I read through Endmasters Edge thread.
Guys, if you’re a student from ******** School, I am one of you. I won’t say who because then I’ll get shamed, but please for the love of god don’t ruin our already fleeting reputation. You guys are kind of being jerks. Honestly, I don’t understand why you had to mention the cost of our tuition. It doesn’t make us better people. It actually kind of makes us seem like jerkwads. Please, we made some bad stories and spammed some people (no idea why) we made a mistake. So admit it, and LET IT GO.
Mizal, would you be aware any ways that I could make my stories preponderant. There’s probably some continuity issues, but i look to no avail. I genuinely like this website and I’m sorry our class made it a worse place. I just want to write some good stories.
Glad you like the website, despite what happened. ^^' If you'd like to write a story, make an idea and make a thread in the Writing Workshop if you want opinions on it. I know a number of people who love giving honest feedback, especially to members like you who seem to honestly want to try.
You are right, my comment about the money was very rude, juvenile, disrespectful, irresponsible and crude, normally I do not make conjectures like that. I was very upset because my partner and i worked very hard on our project (even though it may not have seemed that way to you “experts”, or people who have been on here for a long time/ actually have a college degree). The money part was the last thing i could think of, I in no way mean it. Just because you pay a lot for education doesn't mean you REALLY learn anything. So really, i am sorry... i would delete the comment if i could.
I don’t even know what happened with the Bucky thing. He didn’t seem to do much wrong. Ahaha
I don't know why you're blocking the name out, Endmaster found the school through the IP addresses after five seconds.
I skimmed through most of this, but whatever.
Shame deathblossom65 was banned, I'm sure they would have had been a great addition to the site. Anyone who's username is derived from Reaper's ult is guaranteed to be as edgy as a rhombicosidodecahedron. (Why is that so hard to spell)
Some people still seem to be vaguely butthurt about their honestly-no-effort stories being deleted. I'd like to propose the idea of not republishing after an unpublish. It's completely preposterous, I know. But it might just work.
Also, do y'all know that if you set sneak peek on, you can still see the story? It's a great idea, ain't it? Or all the students could add the teacher as a co-author.
I'll probably never understand how an expensive school somehow managed to fail to teach an English class. But eh I've seen worst butchering of the English language. Besides, I've already embraced the fact that only about 1/5 of most graduates will literate.
Thank the goddess, someone actually wants to learn things. Best of luck to all those involved that wants to stay(?) Though, if you're thin-skinned and can't take criticism, you really might want to back out of here. If you publish something on this site, you're basically leaving it up for criticism. We'll be nice(?) if it looks like you put actual effort in, but if it's a steaming pile of crap most of us are either going to make a joke, say it's crap, or just take the free point.
We ain't all that child-friendly most of the time either.
I've only seen mostly the idiots so far.
And I'm actually surprised that anyone who's named after anything to do with Reaper isn't a "it's not a phase, mom", cut-happy five year old. Since most people that main Reaper are so edgy I accidentally give myself paper cuts just by being on the same team.
Everyone sharing an IP pretty much sucks for the more normal kids. I guess I'll have to wait a few days to see how many of them are actually interested in improving, and all that.
Pffft that last bit. So wait, I can't get VIP if I throw some money at AlexP? Aw, and I wanted a gold name too xD
