Hi! Hopefully this is the right place for this, if not I apologize.

I checked through the forum to find if there was a dynasty RSS feed- apparently there's one specific to each user's subscriptions, tied to a user-specific 'token.' I couldn't find a way to figure out what the token number actually is, though... the only method i found is no longer viable i guess :/

Any suggestions?

Is it faster to ask for a name change or instead to have my account deleted and just make a new one with the same email but new name?

I wouldn't be losing anything if it's deleted so it would be fine either way.

It would be faster to have your username deleted, but I'll have to ask about using the same email afterwards. If that's what you'd like, please let me know.

As long as I can use the same email deleteing is fine. If not then dunno.

Are there artists that the site doesn't upload, like with scan groups? If there are, a list in the Upload Request page would be useful.

I think we might be doing self insertion wrong.

I wrote a bunch on this, but I deleted it. After thinking and a little review, this tag is being used for two separate phenomena. I'll take a more comprehensive look and see what we can do about it.

If you're using it the way I'm thinking, I think the tag should split between "author self-insert" and "reader self-insert".

I think it'd be nice if there were an account option to have the tag blacklist carry over to the threads here for those works as well.

Bot of the day. I think I'm getting the hang of this now.

Edit: Thanks to this one, I figured out the "Lion and Moose" connection from before: one of its spam links happens to contain the word "moose". It's another essay-writing service, and it wouldn't be relevant to the topic even if the thread was actually about mooses...

I think this user could use some guidance on what is and is not acceptable. I think it will take hearing from the mods that there is no child porn on this site to either settle them down or get them to leave.

Older post, so probably a throw-away account, but who the heck do they even think they're advertising to?

Edit: Oh, jeez, I just realized that this post related to printed circuit boards is in a forum with the word "Transistor" in the title. Obviously a bot.

Both these bots have been taken care of.

Made a post suggesting dropping it. Let us know if there's further issues.

Perhaps more warning is needed to cease reading NSFW works if not at the age of majority.

I'm going to wait for others to weigh in on this before taking action because I'm not entirely sure what should be done here since I don't recall the rules or anything when you register actually covering being a legal adult.

Edit: Actually it appears I was either mistaken or it changed at some point. It looks to be hosted in France.

I'm not sure if it would be appropriate to suggest some of Potluck Soup's work for upload and I'm also not sure how I could best go about figuring that out.

They're a western artist with a not quite manga style that seems in line with some of the other western images I've seen uploaded. The two main things that make me hesitant are the fact that they're on the more porn-y end of the spectrum and their art tends to be accompanied with a lot of text, but I also know Dynasty has some stuff in both of those categories. Beyond that they focus on BDSM with a happier and more colorful take than you normally see. I think some of the people on here would find their lesbian works, at the very least, fun.

Deleted the first three bots. Last one is probably a bot but hasn't done anything too egregious yet so I've added them to my list of possible bots to watch out for.

I believe an update to forum rule number 11 is in order to include heterophobia as well. I'm so tired of seeing assholes post how they hate "het shit" and it needs to stop.

That's not really heterophobia. This is a site that predominantly caters to yuri fans. So even if the site does have the occasional het or yaoi upload it's to be expected that plenty of people don't like it and aren't thrilled to see it. If anything you should be complaining that people aren't paying enough attention to tags on some chapters and then proceed to complain about reading het even though it was avoidable.

I dunno.... have some survey or statistical data on that?

This sounds exactly like "black people can't be racist."

The things you find when you read old discussion threads... The story's titled "Roulette", so of course it's going to attract a casino bot.

Please tell us how many straight people are beaten to death on the streets because they're straight. Or how many straight kids are kicked out by their parents because they're straight. Or how many of them have their rights denied because they're straight. If you want to call people saying hetshit "heterophobia", you either know nothing about straight people or about homophobia.

That's incredibly unfortunate that you've resigned yourselves to accepting this behavior from people. And yes, it is heterophobia. You don't get to give bigotry a pass when it's going in the opposite direction.

You are blowing things out of proportion. First of all, people who in the past whined about het works being uploaded here, or het being present in this work or that work, actually have been dealt with by the staff when they went overboard (you will, however, get disappointed if you expect every one-liner to be dealt with). I have even seen site Administrators stepping in ("why is this hetshit being uploaded??" "I decide what gets uploaded").

Secondly, I feel you missed the mark by using the term "heterophobia". I doubt that the people you are speaking against actually have a problem with heterosexual relationships in real life, or even in fiction. They just hate it in their yuri works, which is not quite the same as a phobia. Het complaints are annoying, especially since the tags exist and Dynasty is not, nor was it ever, a yuri exclusive site; it also hosts yaoi and pure het works, just in small quantities.

There are people who actually hate men and hate het, but they are not usually very subtle or brief about it. Such comments are a genuine rarity. The majority of het complaints are made by people who just whine about it interfering with their yuri, nothing more. Dynasty is a place that a lot of people feel attached to for whatever reason, so having things show up that they do not like would obviously draw that kind of whining.

Lastly, said whining is already covered by Rule 10, and I know for a fact the staff is taking it seriously. Your attempt to cram it under Rule 11 is redundant and actively unhelpful, as is demonstrated in this very thread.
