Dora - asking for feedback
« on: September 10, 2018, 04:56:11 PM »
I was a little surprised how few Big Breast or Breast Expansion stories were posted here on the forums.... well, basically none at all.

So I took the translation I made of a older german story and posted it to The Plume. I must admit that the resonsance is not overwhelming, to say the least.


So I wonder... do people here read beyond the General Discussion picture posts at all? Is there an interest in stories in general? What do you think of the story I posted? What do you think of my attempt to continue it? Do people want me to try to continue it?

I have found that posting stories here in not the simplest of tasks, given the policies that this forum is subjected to. But I would have thought that a forum for Breast Expansion was a little more into fantasy.

I'm a little ashamed to beg for comments... but even if I am only the translator of the main story, I would like to know if my small efforts are appreciated or not.

In all fairness, I admit to thinking that "The Plume" was just for talking about the ADDventure. As a result, I stopped going there.

Looks like I may have to stick my nose in every so often.

I thought the same thing... I couldn't find a way to post a story here and I though the ADDventure subforum was just for that author, so I decided to just go out on my own and self publish.

It is rather easy to post a story here... and it isn't.

It's easy, because all you have to do is make a new thread and post your text. I asked a mod if stories were welcome and where to post it, he told me to use "The Plume" and, well, I posted it.

But, yes, there are hurdles to overcome, and I dare say that these may be the reasons why there are no stories posted here at all.

The censorship that this forum is subjected to is harsh and not very logical. You can read in the "rules" tab about terms that are not allowed to be mentioned here... and they have their justification. But these are not all the terms that get censored. Every slight hint at something that may, in any way, imply at the slightest something non-consensual gets censored. Without considering the context, just by sheer brute word search.

That makes it extremely annoying to post a story, and then go through it to look for all the terms that the automatic censorship system thinks are inappropriate... and then reformulate your text. If that is possible.

I think that this is one of the reasons why no one posts stories here. The emphasis on the ADDventure might be another. The fact that no stories are posted, thus no one is looking for any, thus if any IS posted it simply gets ignored... this might be third reason.

I have added another chapter to the "Dora" story... let's see if it gets any resonance. I cannot do more than explicitly ASK people for feedback, comments, suggestions, praise or criticism. If people are **86** to post a simple acknowledgement of your efforts, it is rather depressing for an author... even if you are only an amateur.


I hope you have more success with your books on Amazon, JJ. I really like your style, but I prefer the more natural big breast scenarioes over the BE stories.

[ETA: Hey, look, there it is, the automatic censoring! You cannot talk about people being un.willing. Even when it refers to their reluctance to post a comment. Isn't that great?]
