The search page seems to have returned to the old style for now.

Sorry about the problem. Can you let me know what browser and version you are using to visit the Tags Portal when it's blank? I want to re-create that environment and do testing to see what's going wrong.

I re-tested the Tags Portal on my iPad with the default Safari browser and it seems to work okay, but it's likely we don't have the same model or that we are using different browsers.

Thank you!

Good - but still lacking.

The biggest problem with most porn sites is that you can't add a negative search, which promotes all sorts of misbehavior and bad results.

Let's use a basic scenario to illustrate what I'm talking about.

Let's say you are very interested in "femdom" stories. Right now your only option on this site, and many others, is to search that word and deal with all of the results. Now some websites like this because it increase page-view time and nearly guarantees a result, rather than letting a visitor see a blank page with a failed search reply.

Like I said, great for the site, but crap for the visitor. The visitor has to dig through the results and spend time to actually get to what they want. This means that they visit less often because instead of a fruitful 15 minutes on your site, they know they need to set aside 20-40 minutes to find something good, so they just don't come at all. Pun intended.

This also allows authors to abuse tags. Again they do this all over the internet. In my scenario they'd slam in every keyword possible. Femdom, forced, bi male, cuckold, bull, hotwife, slut, sissy, crossdress, etc... they want as many readers/viewers as possible.

When you allow negative searches, that becomes a very bad idea. It will cost you readers.

So let's say you look for +femdom +bi male -sissy

You would only see stories with the 2 positive tags and none with the - tag.

Better results, better visitor loyalty, better posting behavior.

Two other things...

You can sort by newer, but not older... sometimes people are looking for a really old story.

I didn't test this but last used tags should be defaulted for everyone who has an account. So if the visitor is logged in and comes back in a week, their tags will already be _+femdom +bi male -sissy

New Tags Portal

Thanks for not removing the old design, the new one isn't something I would readily use. My wish is that I could sort stories in a category by date posted.

Thank you again to everyone who has been helping with testing the new interface, we could not have gotten this far without you.

When you put in 2 filters, it seems to sort for the filters individually, not together.
Is this correct ?

"Femdom"

I have mentioned many times that I find that the lack of 'Femdom' in Categories is an oversight that has long-needed fixing.

One reply I had from you, was that there was no need for change. But the amount of complaints I have seen by other writers and readers, backs up my original observation that it is important.

Very few writers seem to use codes, i.e. F/m, F/M. so surely it is time that there is a category for Femdom, not just a tag.

Exclude Tags / Negative Search Function

This site DESPERATELY needs a way to exclude certain tags from your search. There's no way to see all the tags a story is tagged with when you click on it, so you could be sitting there thinking "oh sweet, this story has all my favorite tags", and not realise it's also tagged with the most disgusting turn off ever.

I've seen this happen dozens of times. I'll finish reading some great story about two guys fucking, and then see that the comments are full of furious straight dudes, who presumably found the story by searching for like, "anal +redhead +rough sex", and didn't realise the story was also tagged "gay +two dudes +heteros won't enjoy this".

I kind of just laughed it off until I experienced it myself. Halfway through a pretty hot gay story, one of the guys was revealed to be a fucking alligator. Literally. I hadn't realised the story was tagged "furry", and I DID NOT ENJOY THE DISCOVERY.

The categories don't really help. If you've got a story about a gay transgender vampire banging his five robot brothers (one of whom likes piss)... there's no category you can put that where people aren't gonna freak out about it.

If we had a way to search "anal +redhead +rough sex -one of the dudes is a fucking alligator"... that'd be great.

IDEALLY it would be awesome to be able to add a filter to your profile. So once I'm logged in, any stories tagged "alligator man" will automatically be hidden from me. This would literally be the best feature on any porn site ever. Maybe it creates a bit of a "bubble" but, come on, we're not here for the political discourse.

P.S. No shade to furries. You do you. But... the alligator thing really shook me up, guys.

P.P.S. Just realised there is a legitimate risk of me accidentally reading a vore story. And that's almost enough to scare me away from the site for life.

And include. In short, the OR and NOT operators. The OR is needed because there are so many redundant tags, and selecting one tags excludes the others. In the lesbian category, you have ff, f/f, girl-girl, girl on girl, lesbianism, lesbian and lesbians as common tags. Selecting one will exclude the others. So selecting 'ff' & 'first time' will find stories that 'girl on girl' & 'first time' will not.

Further, you have the tag 'lesbian first time' and 'her first time' that could be excluded from both of the above.

That being said, I do very much like the new tag system over the old one.

Illustrated Category

I have always been frustrated by the catch all category "illustrated" Could each story also have a n identifier for it's content category? i.e., Loving Wives, Incest and Taboo, etc.
Thanks

How about tags or the ability to filter based on "written by female" or "written by male" or ... ????

go back to the old one

When you scroll down the list and click on a story, if you decide you don't like it and go back to the list it takes you back to the top, so you spend all your time scrolling back down the list just so you can continue.

I wish it wouldn't go back to the first list or top of the page in a tagged search after reading a story so I didn't have to start looking all over again.

author page for fans

Hi
I have messaged people and so forth... but just can't seem to get anyone to reply or help fix my author page.

I have over half a dozen series that are not done properly as well as one that is actually wrong.

My new release a fourth part in the "Mom-Son" series was not included in the series... yet again. This is obviously an issue for readers who want to read the sequels...

Please tell me what I can do... as it keeps continuing and is somewhat frustrating.

The new categories search only has a random section

If you click the link for Sci-fi you get taken to a page that displays only random stories. THIS IS BAD. The newest stories had their own section for a reason, when an author publishes a story it gives readers a chance to read the newest story. Now the story that I took months to create wont get the readership that it used too. WHY did you change that? Change it back or your gonna lose authors really quick.

I've seen the 'new story' category disappear and reappear on the category page of GM a number of times in the last few weeks. Not sure the cause, but I don't think there's any intention to remove it permanently.
