Re: Favorite Black Void Story

If I left the option to extend 3871 in a different direction, and you wish to introduce a new idea, or just provide a way out of the story-within-a-story, please do so. I have some problems with how I laid out the parent episode 3861. If I had it to do over again, I would probably go in a different ...

Re: New Addventure Site Up Now

Welcome to the site! I am glad to see someone is using the Extend-A-Story software. I did not write it, but I have enjoyed creating episodes for the Never Ending Quest with it. I went to your site. It looks like you have done some work on it. I have not posted, as I do not want to start things off i...

Re: Absent Friends

I agree with that, JH and Noise Tank. Simple is very much underrated. Thanks to Sir Toby for keeping this site up twenty years, and to JH, Ben, and the many other contributors to the site over the years.

And Happy Birthday to the NEQ. Today is the 20th anniversary of episodes 1 and 2. :D

Re: Your captcha is broken

I signed onto my Google account and tested it by writing an episode. About Captain America smoking weed. It went through absolutely normally. No problems. I also created an episode to see how the re-captcha system worked. It looks like the same system my natural gas provider uses when I forget my p...

Episode Limit - Days

I noticed that the maximum number of days that one can search back, when one uses the "episodes created within in the last x days", is 99. That is not a big deal. This is the first time that I noticed it.

Back for an Evening

Real life has gotten in the way, and I have not had the powers of concentration to write quality episodes in the last three or four years. I wrote a few short episodes tonight. I still visit the site and read the other contributions from time to time.

I can work with the assumption that the goblet is off the island. I have to admit that I skimmed the early parts of the story. Had it been determined in a previous episode what Astra is (or is not) wearing? I cannot find it. I want to make sure that I am not having her put something in a pouch or po...

I would agree with that. And there is also a chance that Astra could just find the goblet in the course of doing something else in the palace.

I also like the comments idea, but I can imagine comments being abused for commercial spam or general Internet trolling nastiness. The NEQ has not gone to seed in part because of timely moderation, and in part because the regular authors are grown-up in the ways that count. One thing that I would li...

Some Scattered Thoughts

I think that one of the things that makes the site work is that it has the right number of authors working on stories at a given time. If a single author makes a contribution and nobody responds, the site dies. If there were suddenly an influx of one hundred authors, our moderator would be overwhelm...

Scattered thoughts on the Time Traveler (1914)

I am not sure how strict the dress codes of a restaurant in a good hotel would have been. Josh might have a problem getting in. I do remember from the O. Henry short stories that oyster bars appeared frequently, and I remember reading somewhere that they were the equivalent of hamburger stands today...
