That's not really heterophobia. This is a site that predominantly caters to yuri fans.

Besides, that's not even a thing in the first place.

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

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 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.

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.

I think it's better to stop that discussion, at least here. You can argue all you want in the Cafe.

Oppression is not an olympic sport; saying bisexuals and ace/aro who have only had relationships with the opposite sex, or even lesbians who "pander to the male gaze", aren't LGBT+ is legitimately bad for the community even if it falls under the umbrella of heterophobia. Legitimate grievances aren't negated by other people having greater concern, especially when those concerns while certainly more obviously important are far more abstracted from this forum than people being routinely shitty on the same forum is. Not that saying something is 'hetshit' is the best example of this on the forum, but there have been plenty of instances of people insisting yuri works are secretly het and stealing space from lesbians that such sentiment should be taken more seriously.

I was wondering how do you post pictures on this site?

It depends on what you mean by that.
If you mean posting new images to the /images section you cannot directly, but you can request them with the same upload request form for chapters.
If you mean embedding images in your post you may do so using markdown as so: ![text](link to image)
The image must be hosted externally and directly linked to however.

Another bot I stumbled upon in an old thread thanks to a new comment. And we get two for the price of one due to them targeting one of the same threads.

Edit: One more that didn't get brought to the staff's attention. Maybe I should start saving these up and post them all in one go...

I would like to delete my account, but I can’t find any way to do so. Can someone point me to the right place to make this request?

Throbelisk, frankly I don't think it's appropriate to carry on when someone is clearly attempting to disengage. Especially given the finality of that disengagement.

OniXX, I will pass along your deletion request. It may take some time to be picked up. Sorry to see you go, take care.

Both of your posts after the request have been removed. Further irrelevant posts on this topic will be removed. Thank you.

Typo in Tamamusi's professional name: it should be Oku, not Oka.

mmm, Hi. I was wondering how others felt about subcategory tags for 'toys.' I feel like 'strap-on' or 'double-ended dildos' toys have a completely different feeling to egg or hand-held vibraters. Did we discuss this already?

Old drive-by bot. Note the spam link edited into another person's quote.

Why do we even have two tags for prostitution? It's weirdly redundant.

One is for prostitution, the other is for having gay sex for money despite being initially stated to be heterosexual. A subset of the other one, but not a superset.

I made a couple more userscripts to add to the userscripts post:


Dynasty Loading Progress

Adds a (real) progress bar to the Loading indicator in the reader.

May not work in Private/Incognito mode, because it depends on normal browser caching to detect the loading state.


Dynasty Chapter Comments

Show forum posts corresponding to a specific series chapter directly on the chapter page, comments style.

Since Dynasty does not actually associate series discussion posts with individual chapters, the userscript estimates this by comparing their timestamps. This means that posts discussing earlier chapters, or the series in general, may show up if they were made after the chapter was added. Also, chapters that were added to Dynasty in batch will only show comments when viewing the last chapter in the batch.

It's possible that this user is genuinely trying to be helpful when responding to four-year-old questions (that were already answered in the very next post), but maybe someone should keep an eye on them.

Edit: Ignore that, looks like a false positive.

I noticed that several of Gotou Yuuki's oneshots have been collected into a tankoubon. The title is "Koi ni Wazurai" and the opening pages can be seen here (though that's not actually the first chapter). It contains the following chapters, most of which are on here:

Koi-iro Cocktail
Scandal
Kateikyoushi to Imouto-chan (Private Tutor and Little Sister)
Delusion Diary
Love Wars
missing link side:rina (Engrish title was corrected for the volume)
missing link side:syuri
Koi-iro-Cocktail Okawari (...Refill)

I could swear I've read something called Private Tutor and Little Sister, but the search is drawing a blank...

Yeah, we're so far afield now. This is a mistake on my part, I should have kept a much closer tab on the topic after my post. It's being taken care of.

Edit: And we're done. I'll keep a proper eye on it now, thank you.

The Manga General Thread seems to have attracted some dubious posts. And one back in 2013 by a user who clearly hadn't read the manga they were commenting on in their other spam post. I haven't clicked on any of the links, but I suspect they're in violation of rule 5.

And this guy seems to be living on a different planet from the rest of us, what with his invitation to get together and travel the world...
