Biweekly Update: Friday, 21 April 2017

F
Four new chapters from me. I’m a little surprised myself. I passed my first major Patreon milestone of $150, and that means you'll be seeing more content from me on a monthly basis. I am tremendously grateful to my Patreon supporters, and to everyone who helps out by rating and commenting and sending me suggestions for the site. This might be my own little home page and very public personal porn stash, but I love that it’s out there for a lot of other folks to enjoy.

In addition to the new stories, I have a few significant changes to the site i’d like to tell you about.

(a) Text size toggle: Somebody mentioned that it would be useful to have a way to change the size of the text on story pages, as it could be small and hard to read on some devices. This was something I had planned for a later, more major upgrade, but I brought it forward and set up a text size toggle button at the top right of each story, in the breadcrumbs strip above the story title. There are three levels—normal, large, and extra-large. It also stores your preference in a cookie, so if you have cookies enabled your new text size preference will remain in place as you move to another story.

(b) Tag suggestions: Another site regular suggested that it would be useful to have an easy way to let me know a particular story is missing tags that it should have. It’s the kind of thing that’s a hassle for a reader to go and type out the contact form about, but that people might do if there’s a EZ tag suggestion form for a given story. So now there is. The link is directly under the router stack for each story, before the story text starts.

(c) Page load speed improvements: I tracked down what was taking the story and story list pages an extra three or four seconds to load, and I smashed it like a bug. Those pages should now take no more than a second to load on a broadband connection.

(d) Site statistics: I played around with Google’s graph embedding facility to make a page of fairly useless stats and charts.

(e) General cosmetics: I decided it looked a little vanilla for the text of each story to just start, so I set up a drop capital that’s demure but still makes more a bold start to each chapter. I also buffed up the looks of the index page, since that looked a little plain too.

Okay, enough of that. Here are the new stories. Thanks for visiting!
