Talk archiving

  • A better way to archive your talk page might be to move it to User talk:Platypus/Archive1. That way, it's in the "User talk" namespace, and it automatically links back here. It's also the standard way people archive talk pages on MediaWiki wikis like this one. -Camper9 03:17, 24 June 2008 (PDT)

Good idea. Thanks! --Platypus 04:43, 24 June 2008 (PDT)

-Uman- on 4/16/14

Hello all, I just want to say thank you all for your contributions, and I was wondering if I could bring your attention to The Humiliation of Katie, my story which currently only has a few people adding to it. As such I am looking to raise attention to it to get more writers involved (Warning 18+ material).

I'm not sure if you were aware, but 6bushes is 'blanking' (removing all content) from many pages in "Smutty Sex Romp." I was going to revert them myself, but I read that it would be better to contact a sysop about it via their talk page since they can mass revert. -- Katrex

I've noticed from your edits of the pages I've added, I've been letting some words in the past tense through (had/was being the primary offenders). My apologies, for this wasn't my intention. I've been trying to stick to present tense, I guess some words are just far easier for me to miss. I'll try to ensure all future pages (and current) pages are kept in (changed to) the present tense. Thanks for the corrections you've made, I probably wouldn't have noticed it otherwise. As well, thanks for changing the colour of the text on that one page, I was wondering how I could do that.  :] -- Katrex

Thanks for fixing the coding in my template.--Zinger2099

I found some bs links I guess the spammer left, and deleted them. Sadly, the spammer deleted all the rated R stories, and I'm not sure how to bring them back. Might want to look into this.--Olboyfloats

Well, he said he was leaving. Looks like we might be safe.--Guardian Angel 18:33, 22 February 2007 (EST)

Need help deleating the 1s? Fruitbat

I can;t find where to deleat a page.

Do you have a feeling that Decimus Callilaus (or whatever his name is) was actually Gauis Fleminus and managed to change his IP address or something? Fruitbat

There's another Roman vandal. Right now, I'm sure that it's either Gaius or a group of vandals that know him. Congrats on blocking him before he destroyed the site! Fruitbat

I wish there was a way to like block all users with Roman names so that the Roman vandals can't come on anymore! It's a good thing Robkohr gave us those powers! Fruitbat

What is that 70. whatever user doing? He's filling up the entire page with stories he hasen't even started!? Fruitbat

Does the Tredguard's Treasure quest really belong in Normal stories? Fruitbat

Sorry, I guess I'm just lazy and don't proofread my edits. Won't happen again. Lucky numbers

Exeuse me? What did you say I messed up? I know I neede to proofread my sections of Cusader, but I have no clue what the other thing you mentioned. sexy smutt romp? I don't understand. Lucky numbers

Frankly, I'm getting confused of all the 68. members. I just blocked one, and another shows up and starts editing the same page, with the same warnings that the user I blocked had. I am just confused! Fruitbat

It's like a cult of Secret Island people, who save-edit-save-edit etc. Fruitbat

Thanks for saving Boromir's Quest from the link spammer. Fruitbat

Olay, thanks! Fruitbat

Do you have any idea what is going on with Boromir's Quest? Every time I try to make a new page, it takes me to this stupid page which makes my type in a word before I can continue. Do you know what this is? Fruitbat


  • They make it easier to determine what story a page belongs to when the page is viewed out of context.
  • They make it easier to determine how many pages belong to a given story.

Having unique templates for stories delivers both advantages... both there's nothing wrong with categorizing the pages as well, if you really want to do all that work. --Platypus 12:49, 15 March 2007 (EST)

Thanks. I don't really mind the work, because, for the most part, adding a category to the template will add each page to that category to. Personally, I think it'll also help to organize the wiki a bit, so that we don't just have pages with names that are meaningless without the rest of the story. But that's just me. — LastUserNameEver 21:55, 15 March 2007 (EST)

Categories are not needed for Kitty in the Window or any adventure with a unique status bar. They already basically have a category all to themselves! Fruitbat

Sorry. It's my first time, and I haven't even finised the page. I don't even know how to categorize. Emilyh1234

Hey Platypus, I'm really sorry here, leaving our 'categories' on 6 pages! I really think you should add an option that allows a category to be automatically placed on a page, easy to change. That way users don't have to multi-type the category. Scared from my last warning, I'm posting a category on this too. --Blueboy112


Just trying to help, that's all. Most of the pix are Wikipedia pic anyhow....I'm trying to keep everything copyright-safe. 17:49, 26 March 2007 (EST)


Hi! I am creating my own wiki. However, I do not know how to upload my logo on to this site. Please help! You can catch me on the main site (you know []) as Sportman2. PLease leave a message there. Please help!-- 16:58, 28 March 2007 (EST)

Rabbit Hole

Hey! You completely rock! Thanks for all the help making the story look great! I'm still a little new when it comes to all this, but with your help, I'd have to say I'm very proud of how this story is starting out! HAIL ERIS!! --Olboyfloats

Oh, I LOVE the flipped Chao and the colored box. Super cool stuff. This whole Rabbit Hole thing is getting deeper and deeper every day! --Olboyfloats

Ya,sry bout that...I deal with getting users to do that.May I ask why the categories arn't integrated with the template?Shazlin 23:24, 19 June 2007 (EDT)

Hey Platypus, I'm kind of wanting to write my own story now, front page in the 18+ section, could you help me out? Oh, and is there some way to put it on there and work on it while keeping it locked from other people (until I'm finished or have a decent start on it) Thanks. --Ashogo


Hi Platypus,

You have been a great user on the system and I have given you sysop rights. This means that you can block users that are vandals on the system. If you would like to look up a user's IP address go to the Control Panel and use the tool there. Then go to special pages to go to the block IP form. Please use this feature sparingly. Blocks should only be used for users that are trying to destroy the site and not to censor content.

--RobKohr 03:03, 25 February 2007 (EST)

  • Sometimes after you submit it takes you to an "create a wiki page". That is just a problem with the redirect and the block did work.
  • Fruitbat is another user that I granted rights on
  • I have already blocked Gaius

Thanks for the tip Rickyrab 18:21, 22 March 2007 (EST)

Thanks for hooking up the Rabbit Hole! I've started some of the basic begginnings of it, and will be working on it a ton over the weekend. Feel free to correct my spelling, make it funnier, add new things, whatever. After this weekend, when I'm happy with it, I'm going to start advertising it amongst my regular Discordian channels, and inviting everyone to play along. My hope is that someday it has more pages than the Smutty Sex thingy.. Olboyfloats

hey platypus i would like to move tree of doom to the 18+rated section but i dont know how, can you help me?

Hi Platypus

Thanks for letting me know about the health bars & such. Hope I'm not creating too much work for you when I forget them occasionally.

About the Hitchhikers Guide problem - so, are ALL of these stories interlinked?


Thanks for the explination. Did that story you were editing have unuploaded images as well? It must have. Fruitbat

Hi Platypus

Thanks for giving me that info many thanks! Well im a newby but im learning... p.s can you get flash animations onto your stories etc.


Death to perversion

Your empire of perversion is at an end! Go post your porn on a porn site, and let this wiki become a Choose-your-own Adventure Wiki, not a place for sick idiots such as yourself to masturbate!

Death to perversion! Let logic reign!

Get a life, loser. And try making your own site with stories you like instead of trying to trash our site. --Platypus 19:23, 26 November 2007 (EST)

  • If this wiki uses an up-to-date version of MediaWiki, you should be able to rollback pages directly from a user's list of contributions, which should be a little faster. --Camper9 20:30, 29 November 2007 (EST)


Thanks for adding in the status bar. I wasn't sure how to do that, but once I saw how you added them in, I figured it out rather quickly. -Kliesh

Stop Deleting My Stuff

The adult section has no limits. Although I know you hate sex on this site and profanity...DEAL WITH IT!!!!

I don't know the details but.. depending on the sort of sex and profanity, it might be better off if you put it under the 'poor taste stories' instead... I doubt anyone will delete it there. -Zoroastra

Is there any special code language that I have to/ought to know? I tried editing/adding a few pages to University Daze and accidentally broke at least two links.  :(

Is there an easy way to get to a page that gives some sort of tutorial on how all this works? I'm by no means a computer guru. Honestly, I'm rather clueless. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey, thanks for editing my edits...or however you quite say that....^^. I don't know how to post links to different options, so if someone could tell me that would really help! :D -Funnymuffin


Can you help me and tell me how to put/make a story on this site? I would really like it if you could. I made sure that this message was spelled correct to please you. I need your help.

Band text adventure

Hello, platypus, Im Squibots2 , I created the text adventure called Band forming thing. I need some help. Lately, its been getting edgier and edgier. I dont want it deleted, but i dont know how to move it. do you think you can move it to R or 18+ so i have less limitations?? please??

Help Out a Newbie?


Hey, I'm trying to figure out how to add locations to the status bar..I'm sure it's ridiculously easy, but I'm afraid it's a little beyond my grasp. Could you help me out?


Hey, remember me? I'm Platypus2! I'm back with a new account called Platypus3. Don't worry, I haven't spammed anyone so far. I just wanted to warn you that blocking me will just make me come back with a new account. Look, I'm sorry for all the spam I posted. I was just pissed that you deleted my contributions to "Teenager." I know they were innapropriate, but they added a hilarious edge to the story. I made it much better. You should have got the guy who made Teenager's opinion before deleting it. I'm sure he would have thought it better! C'mon, man! I promise not to spam if you wont delete any funny contributions I make. I'm offering a truce.

yea im still learning the ropes so im still working on them thanks tho

hey Platypus, thanks for trying to keep things consistant but it IS SUPPOSED TO CHANGE you will see why in the end (hint: it may have something to do with a pumpkin) also please stop trying to keep health consistant.

Platypus STOP

hi Platypus THERES REASON FOR CHANGE in jim's Barbeque. Thanks for trying to keep things consistant but THATS NOT HOW WE WANT IT (you will see what we mean LATER ON)


   Thanks for reading - Hey its

yo needs endings

yo there is like almost no endings here hello!


If i tried to delete Random III then it was probably an editing accident. Try to relax more, you dont have to blast me for a mistake.

You sly dog, you probably know who wrote this anyway so I won't sign it.

What the Barbeque

K so i think we got an issue here mister LETS GO RUIN ALL THE FUN. I see that you want to be like us cool dudes and make the site better one story at a time but we gotta come to an agreement here k? Now this leads me to my first question. Are You the only admin on this site? OR ARE YOU JUST SOME KIND OF BARBEQUE HATER?!?!?!?! You are the only person who seems to freak out when we do anything that you think is wrong everyone else is gettin a laugh and changin it back in time... but you just seem to scream about every little thing. Yes i see that you are doing good but still....

thankyou Me

p.s. it would be really cool if you could set font colour :) (and if you can, can you help with how?)


Um.... you seem to be the most active user, so I thought I'd introduce myself. There's not much to say, but is there anything I should know that's not on the main page? I admit, I'm a bit confused by the distinction between "Normal" and "R-rated" stories. Could you clarify please? Other than that, can you recommend any stories to read in the R-rated or under sections?

Thanks--Rawar 09:23, 27 March 2009 (PDT)


Sorry about that. I'll try my best to do keep things right. I'm usually pretty good about this stuff but far from the best. If I'm doing anything wrong, just let me know and I'll do my best to fix it.-121 18:25, 30 January 2009 (PST)


I created a separate page which I use to describe a few points on the status bar, thereby allowing me to remove it from the main page and giving a end result that I think looks much nicer. However, since it's not technically part of the story if this is a problem feel free to delete it. Just let me know if you do so I can re-add the information to the first page. - Katrex 18:48, 28 September 2008 (PDT)

chill I'm trying dude ok? Platypus,

Not all of them are endings. Im actually refreshing it with a new side story.

Sex Romp updates

Just a brief note so you'll know I'm enjoying the SSR outrageousness. I especially like Lynn the ballerina, her determination to bring as many in as possible, and her slightly foul-mouthed amazement at their (lack of) limits. I'd like to see more of Lynn... pity there's no option (yet) to let her follow the player home and playfully boss him around some more. (-:

My Threads (University Daze)

Thanks for the grammar nazi'ing. I have a habit of coming back (read: much) later and fixing what I write. It helps to be distanced from it, otherwise I don't spot errors and can't really tell whether I like what I've written. You've made my job easier.

--Anubite 13:57, 25 November 2008 (PST)

skilful / skillful

"skilful" is a better spelling than "skillful" because whereas both spellings are acceptable in American English, only "skilful" is allowed in British English. Therefore that's the spelling that should be used here: Rock, Paper, Scissors/Rock/Rock.--Alphador 03:36, 12 December 2008 (PST)


Hey - just discovered this site and have been perusing some of your work. I have a question - is it permitted to add gay options to existing stories? I am not sure what the accepted rules are. I can start my own story, but thought it might be fun to add to some of the existing adult CYOAs. PhinnyGene 12:36, 17 December 2008 (PST)

Yes. Adding gay options to existing stories is allowed. --Platypus 16:03, 17 December 2008 (PST)

I added an option to the Fuck Christie's tits page of Jack Foster -- I see you reverted it -- did I do something wrong? I thought we were encouraged to add more possible options...? PhinnyGene 20:29, 19 December 2008 (PST)

Just a quick question. Can we start our own stories? If yes, then how? Unkowhero23

Thanks for contacting - I thought I was making my own story, but obviously I'm doing something wrong Lol! Will look into it and to a bit more reading. Cheers! Impious

Sub Categories

I noticed that in SSR you have a separate category for all of the locations in that story. I was wondering if this is something that should be done for all non-story pages of an adventure. In my story, War of Nations, I do have a couple of spells with links that aren't related to the plot but instead explain what the spell does. Also, second question, Should I begin all of my options with War of Nations/ or is it okay to remove that part? Thirdly, how exactly do I create a category?

  • I created the location subcategory mainly so I could track how many pages are in a given location and make it easier to get to pages in a given location. From a location's page, I can click on "What Links Here" and see all the pages in that location. If you want to make a subcategory for spells, feel free.

Should you begin all options with War of Nations? It's up to you. Adding that to the option name does keep you from accidentally crossing pages with another story.

Creating a category is much like creating a regular page. Type [[Category: Category Name]] on a page and the page is now categorized. Click on the red Category Name and you go to an index page showing all the pages in the category. If you place the name of another category on that index page, your new category become a subcategory. --Platypus 17:23, 1 February 2009 (PST)

Thanks for the help

Thank you for helping me with my story! I'm new to editing Wikis so I don't know to add categories and all that plus I make mistakes often. Thanks. One question, why did you delete 666? It was a perfectly good room!


Hi Platypus,

Sorry to hear about the vandal attack. I haven't heard of him attacking elsewhere, but if I have learned anything about vandals, they get bored and move on after a little while. I saw that you were blocking his IP's so that should at least make it harder.

Note: it is very unlikely that he is related to Londonbirders. They are a group interested in birds, not messing with wikis, so I wouldn't bother asking them about this. He is most likely just trying to get wikis to accuse eachother.

What is this "owned by birdwatchers" thing doing on my page?
Seems that there is some vandal wandering around. Just revert his changes and don't engage him in dialog (never feed the trolls)

It'll do for now

I'm sure you'll completely repair the main page when you get back online. I don't care too much about the rest of this jerk's vandalism, but we need a main page and I did what I could to get it at least usable. BTW, is there any way to block all users named "londonbirder[anything]" at once, so that imbecile boy would have to at least switch to a completely new username? Hopefully he'll get bored soon. -- Teejay

thanks for your help

Thanks for your revisions. I hope you are enjoying the story. I'd love your contributions if you'd be so bold.

Stop editing my story of burning leaves please

Hey Platypus, I told on the first page of the Burning Leaves story that I didn't want no one except me editing the story because I already have the whole story planned but you still keep editing it, stop with editing it please.


Thanks for correcting my grammar and I'm sorry for getting angry at you, it's just that I saw that there also were new things added and since I saw that you was the only other one than me that had been editing it I thought you did that but maybe you wasn't.


I've added a link to the first page of Rampage allowing readers to skip forward a bit. The reason for this is that the story now is getting to be a bit long and seems to have developed into two seperate parts. There's part I (Brandon/Valerie/mother) and part II (Kaya/Samantha) with only one link connecting the two. I just thought it would help people if they've already read the older bits. If you don't like the idea, feel free to remove the link. Thanks.

Creating A Custom Template

In some of the articles, I saw some custom-made templates with different names given to them. Could you perhaps teach me on how to create my own custom template? I don't want anything fancy, really. I want something like the 'Status' template you posted on the Main Page, with the title, "Status" changed to "Digimon Status" instead. Do you think you could help me with that? =)

--OminousFlare 00:48, 25 September 2009 (PDT)

  • Thanks, Platypus. Your advice helped a lot.

--OminousFlare 09:37, 25 September 2009 (PDT)

Editing A Page Title

Okay, this is getting way annoying. I keep on finding myself having the need to edit some of the titles of my articles and I cannot do so as there is no such function. Thus, I have to keep on bothering you to delete my pages after I create new ones with changed titles but with the same contents to replace them. I am sure this is a little frustrating on your part, too.

Is there a way for me to edit the page titles at all? Or is it a doomed no-return path upon a page's creation? Thanks for your help again and I hope to hear from you soon.

--OminousFlare 12:07, 25 September 2009 (PDT)

  • So, I'm guessing the 'redirect' function really doesn't work in this wiki? Because I tried putting #REDIRECT [[insert page title]] into the page I want to be deleted (using the preview, of course) and it doesn't work, so, I thought I might check with you if I'm doing something wrong here or my first assumption is correct.

Stories in the wrong Category?

So, I've been working on Transylvanian Terror (which is in the Mature section) again, and it occurred to me that nothing in there is really R rated. Definitely PG 13, but not R. If you've read through a path or two, would you agree? That said, I don't feel comfortable moving it under a category entitled "Kid's stories", although the heading would indicate that PG 13 goes under there. When I think "Kid" I think 7-9 year olds, and it's not a story for them. Would it be appropriate to either separate out PG and PG 13 or retitle the "Kids" stories? There are several other stories in the "Mature" section that are definitely not R rated, but neither are they kid's stories. Examples are DARKNESS, World's End, and Jim's barbecue. Actually, maybe it'd be best to take the PG-13 criteria form the "Kids stories section" and give it to the "Mature" section. What do you think?

Also, has "Hunting again for Red October" been nominated for story of the week yet? If it hasn't, I totally nominate it.

Thanks, --Rawar 14:17, 6 October 2009 (PDT)

 Hey, I am completely new to the site and was wondering what you thought about my contribution in the War & Sex storyline?

 I'm more than happy to follow you're guidelines but you weren't very specific about what you didn't like. I am
new to site, so bear with me. How did I deviate from the story style for one thing, I thought I followed it quite accuratley 
from what I had read until that point. The page your reffering to that was a dead end, I was going to finish editing it 
actually, it wasn't finished, I was going to have him go back to his apartment. (the arc had to logically end at some point,
but I realised you probly didn't want me to end the story). I didn't finish since I had to eat dinner lol. Also, my grammar
is fine and if anything only needs minor editing. What structuring? You mean text codes? How are they wrong?
Anyhoo, hope you get back to me,

          - Dear Platypus,
We, the users behind "Hey its", would like to thank you for the unban. We promise
not to be abusive to others' stories or the site - yes, other users' stories have unlimited possibilities,
but it adds that special zazz to ours. We would like to call a truce between us, and an agreement for you to leave our edits
alone or a notification of said edit. 
       Thank you,
          Jim's Barbeque
          - Dear Platypus,
In regards to your last message: we are not trying to annoy you nor draw your wrathful ire. Our underlying plot 
simply drew itself, unbidden, from the path we had intended it to take, and those involved in the wrongful tainting of this fine 
site's front page have been forcibly restrained from accessing the account. To give a short little tantalizing taste 
of our grand scheme, our connection to other stories is like the intertwining of supporting chains that come together in unity to 
form a massive bridging masterpiece. But we are not acting upon a roguish, free-form method; nay, for graceful 
and generous contact is made between the affected and ourselves, in one way or another. Those who have coldly abandoned
the loving, harmonious community supporting this website are subject only to the most subtle, unassuming involvement
that tarnishes not any name, in any one's opinion. Your contact with us is invaluable to our cause, and we would be subject
to only the finest honour if you were to keep in touch with any further snags along this fine road we trod.
       Thank you,
          Jim's Barbeque
          - Dear Platypus,
We are extremely thankful for the revival of our long sought-after story page. While we respectfully disagree that it does not
belong in "World's End", we agree to not repost it within that story.
       Thank you,
          Jim's Barbeque

Deletions Requested

Sorry about the little mess, but I prefer the hyphen over the slash. Anyway, here are the blanked pages:

Oh and if I can ever make it easier on you by doing something differently (still getting the hang of CYOA, not to mention wiki-editing in general), don't hesitate to point out my noobery.

Please Contribute more!

You're probably the user that is on this site the most and are really creative, can you please contribute more to my story, "High School?"(Just not Gothic male or female please!)


EDIT: Hey, there is something I would like you to do on my High School story. the link is here: *"Um, well I thought we were going to....Well....You know....Do it...." you say nervously and embarassed. It's the ONLY thing (so far) that I would like you to do on goth. I chose you, because you're incredibly descriptive, you're good at writing all the sex and stuff, and you're pretty much one of the only trustworthy people on here. You can also edit any other page that branches off of that little page(if you know what I mean; I'm not good at explaining). I think it would be pretty cool if you used one of the props already in equipment. (it's in Bold Italic) And weird stuff could happen, like their eyeliner, or their lipstick smears and stuff. And if you want, Allison can use anything she has in her room (Use your imagination ;) ). And If it wouldn't bother you, you could do both points of view, from Jace's and Allison's point of view. It'll also show you what's already in her inventory. (Allison's point of view:*"Um, well I thought we were going to....Well....You know....Do it...." Jace asks nervously.)Please, if you get this, leave me a comment on my discussions page.


Hey Platypus

Hey platypus. You know my story, 13 years. While it may not be a CYOA, I don't know where else to put it. So even though it doesn't belong here, can I continue doing it? PLEEASSSE? With a cherry on top(lol)?--Blablob 06:25, 17 October 2009 (PDT)

Okay, well about the 13 years topic, I'll fix it tomorrow. I will add choices instead, so no worries.--Blablob 17:00, 17 October 2009 (PDT)

Telling when a story was last worked on

Is there a way to tell when a story was last added to? I want to do a bit of maintenance and move some stories into the Pit of Abandoned Stories, but unless I check every page, it's hard to tell if the story's been inactive since it was started last year, or if someone just added a page last Tuesday. Thanks. --Rawar 15:25, 27 October 2009 (PDT)


I have started a Tutorial. If you want to give me a couple days, I can finish most of the pages myself (except for the video embedding. I'm not even sure that's possible. I heard someone talk about it in a story though.), but there may be some topics I've overlooked. If there are, would you please add them? Would you also make sure the info I included is accurate? Lastly, I'm not really sure where the appropriate place to put it would be. Right now it's residing in the G stories section. Maybe you can find a good place for it. --Rawar 22:46, 28 October 2009 (PDT)

Reversion needed?

Looks like the main page may need to be reverted. All the PG-13 stories found their way into the Quizzes section. Looks like it's a job only a sysop can do. --Rawar 13:45, 30 October 2009 (PDT)

What do you mean?

When you posted me about me taking away catagories for my pages, I misunderstood you. Do you mean you want me to start putting them, or not deleting them? I'm not the one who's been getting rid of them. In fact, I wouldn't even know how. Please don't delete my pages.--Blablob 13:10, 13 November 2009 (PST)

what are you talking about? I never deleted it. Honostly! But, uh, yeah, I'll make sure I make catagories for my pages.--Blablob 18:14, 13 November 2009 (PST)

After a little bit of thought, I've come to a decision. I'll be leaving the website. Er..I guess a better way to put is I won't be editing anymore. I used to do it all the time, but I just find it kind of boring now. So, yeah, see ya later, I guess.--Blablob 16:15, 14 November 2009 (PST)

Blablob is BACK, baby!

Hello, I'm back. Yes, after a while of thought and whatnot, I decided I'd give this place a second go. Now, my other stories--13 years, Icarly, and a few others--it's all behind me. I'm going to start focusing more on PG 13 stories rather than mature stories, and I'll probably work on 1 story, and make it really good, rather than making a bunch of stories. It won't be anything like 13 years: a long story with long chapters with barely any choices to make; I'm coming back for a fresh start. So, I hope you are glad to have me back, and I promise to take consideration into my mistakes in the past.--Blablob 13:28, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Sorry About The Grammar

Last night I was pretty tired when I was typing all of that storyline. I ended up kind of ignoring all my mistakes... Thanks for the future reminder though. --Orpheus 21:27, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

Guess I should report this to you

So while reading Warhammer: Sartosa, City of Pirates about a week ago I reached the page knock at the door which had an odd code.


Supposedly a browser was to appear in which you could enter the password but obviously it’s not working. I briefly read the Wikipedia help articles but found no helpful information on how to fix it. So I used categories to cheat and get to the next page. I would have told you earlier but for some reason I did not.

So I’m wondering if this is some sort of bug that happened when the database was transferred and if it can be fixed. If not I can just start a new page at the page were you get the password and copy the entire story into a new story arc identical to the normal one except that you know the password.

Also, happy New Year and merry Christmas in arrears. (If you’re into that sort of thing).

User:Fletcher Peninsula

Hey Platypus!! :D

This is what you wrote (I'll put in bold the things I wrote): Please follow the style of the story you are working on I don't get it, do you mean by this that I have to continue writing pages for Burning Leaves or does it mean that I have to write in third person in every page where I write? (which is the style I normally use) . The pages in University Daze do not start with dashes What are dashes? (I searched in my dictionary and it described the word as lines but I don't think it means that) . And again, include the category on every page you write. I would do that if I knew how to but I don't (*sigh* I still have a lot to learn about CYOA). Btw what to you mean with again? You never told me to before.

-pandafoxygirl- 17 January 2010 at 8:34 am (European time) Um excuse me but i didnt post it, I think so how would you even know it's incomplete and I'm new to the whole choose adventure thing so please at first their all going to be choppy but you dont have to threaten to delete it how would you like it if I threatened to delete something of yours? --Caterius 00:22, 19 January 2010 (UTC) Um okay could you please help me out on my story then please and thankyou.--Caterius 14:33, 19 January 2010 (UTC) -CharizardORAS- 02 April 2019 at 4:16 pm(US Eastern Standard Time) I know their incomplete and what not. I'm new and still trying to figure things out. So maybe inform me on what I can do or how to, I can do things properly. Thanks! -CharizardORAS- 02 April 2019 at 5:41 pm Thanks for the help. I'll check it out


Oh, now I get it (I think), thanks. It's just that I'm actually Dutch, I'm pretty good at English but I still have to learn a lot.

Oh sorry then, I didn't think of it that way.

Okay then, from now on I'll also add categories to the page.

Thanks for helping me out ^_^;

The Battle for the Earth

Hi Platypus! I was hoping you could move "The Battle for the Earth" from the Pit back into the active list. I've started working on this, cleaning it up and running some interesting story lines through it. I'd like to be open for others to add to. Thanks! -Robin

Thanks for moving it back! - Robin

Student's work

Hi there,

I'm using your site for my students to create stories in second person POV. Sadly, one of my students didn't follow the instructions and now our IP address is blocked. Is there anything I can do? My students were really excited about publishing their work this way.


You keep telling me to put the category on the things I post, i don't know what you mean. NOTE: I know I have posted stories that aren't adult under adult, I think I'm being hacked. Ninja Kittehs from Space was supposed to be under PG-13. OTHER NOTE: Yes I am a n00b, and have no idea how this works, so please don't insult me. NOTE #3: I am over 18, I just don't like that kind of thing. NOTE #4: I think I know what you meant, please check my stories (Video Games, Ninja Kittehs from Space, they were supposed to be PG-13), and see if I did it right.

Broken Page

Crusader 2: Paladin

Okay I'm gonna try this..

Okay Platypus, this may or may not work... File:C:\Users\Possum\Pictures\AdventurebyKevinsims22.jpg Okay it didn't work so...C:\Users\Possum\Pictures\AdventurebyKevinsims22.jpg Maybe? Hmmmm.....If not I'll find a way that will be much easier...
Or before I do that I'll try this Media:C:\Users\Possum\Pictures\AdventurebyKevinsims22.jpg Okay my last attempt,(in actuality I made like 5050345245 other attempts buttt you know.) [<a href=""><img src="m.jpg" alt="" /></a>]

Okay it worked, kind of. --Orpheus 12:22, 13 June 2010 (UTC)


How would I go about adding the titles? Sorry, I'm new and wasn't sure how. I love your story though.

I removed the CW section because, as far as could be told, there was nothing in it.

Sorry if I'm doing this wrong you mentioned categories, how exactly do I do that? I really have no idea I'm sorry if my editing was against the rules.

What do you mean by Uncategorized? My stuff is getting deleted and i don't understand.

Sorry 'bout that

Sorry Platypus, I had to rush to get to school and didn't have time to make it a proper page, no need to delete my little contribution to the smutty sexiness, oh by the way I notice a lack of romantic stories in the Mature/Adult section, that I think of it the whole sight could use some romancing, I will remedy this problem , you know since i'm cool like that, and again sorry for the error but I can't miss another english class if I want to pull off an A-. P.S. Do you mind if I call you the platinum pussy? Or how about Platypussy, Guardian of Panties? No offense or anything but I had to make the connection, its who I am. P.P.S. Are you a beaver or a duck, or the bastard child of a one night stand between the two? Please enlighten me to your origins, and read earlier comment before you get pissed at me. -Manichimon

An apolicypse

Sorry for my bad formatting and syntax. Its my first story and im still learning how to do everything :) Tell me if you have any other suggestions that might improve how it turns out. An_apolicypse

The Greatest Weekend Ever

Hey, Can you tell me how to completely remove pages from a story? people have edited my story and i dont like the way they took it. User Talk: saleemyas3

okay thats what i did, but you messaged me to not do that, and you put all the text back in the pages.

What about Categorizing?

How do you categorize a page? And why do you get penalized when you don't? I certainly don't get the jist of why we have to

categorize when I don't know how to do it, and can't find out where, either.

Moving Story to Category

I'm a bit new here although ive had expierence editing with Wikia. How do i move the story im started, High School Sophomore Year, to the Adult Section? Loch

Something came to my attention...

Looks like a kid who's obviously under 18 added a story to the "Adult" section. I didn't remove it, but you may want to look at it.

This is the story.[1]

Page Needs Attention

As requested on the page I am bringing SttMF/Ask Him to Just Fuck You to your attention. It is linked from SttMF/Let Him Pleasure You.

Smutty Sex Romp

Hey Platypus, doing a great job as always.

Would you please review Smutty Sex Romp? The description on the main page claims 10,000 pages, but I just did a quick check, and it only have 636.

Smutty Sex Romp

From Lord X. I'd like to have the Church Little Lindsay section expanded including talking to the nun about what i did to lindsay i'm wondering if she's accepting

Greek Heroes

I'm doing Greek Heroes for a school project. It will be a story about Heracles. As you can see, I've already got a few CYOA's.

Smutt Sex Romp

Sorry, clearly I don't understand how everything works yet. I simply clicked on the page list and this is what it says:

Articles in category "Smutty Sex Romp" The following 199 pages are in this category, out of 646 total.

I assumed that the 646 total meant that was how many pages were part of the story.


No problemo, I'll be sure to make sure my grammar and tenses work better in whatever I add to SSR from now on.

Category page for Temporal

Hi there,

Thanks for setting up a category page for my new story "Temporal". I have only just started here and didn't realize I had to make one until just now, and noticed you had already done it for me. Appreciate it!

Birthday Boy

Thanks for catching the orphaned page!


I'm really sorry, As you can see it's a work in progress but I try to follow the rules.

Page Tagging

Hi Platapus,

I added a new feature to EDI today:

I figure tagging might be something that would be pretty useful and important to this wiki. Feel free to fiddle with it and if you would like to set any standards for cyoa, I leave it up to your judgement.

Furry World Advice?

Okay since I'm a major idiot...I accidentally made an article tag and not a post...please just ignore that. I was working on some furry world postings the other day and I saw that you were a major contributor to it, I was just wondering if you were interested in taking a look at some of the things I've written...I don't know. Sorry to trouble you man.


Whenever l try to edit Lady Helsing it says Permission error and l'm not allowed because l'm not user or a bureaucrat even when l have already logged in. Why's that?

Hi Platypus Thanks for the reminder for the the stats, I completely forgot them. Do you know if there is any way to change the header of the movie section from "movie" to "books"? The part i´m currently doing is based on the NJO books, so "movie" deoens´t really fit. THX Maramara2


Oh gosh, I am really really sorry if I made a mistake on the Smutty story. It's my first day on this site, so I apologise if I fucked up. It won't happen again.

Bug Report?

Hi Platypus, I hope this goes here. I was going through the story University Daze and I came across a page that gives me the following message:

The database did not find the text of a page that it should have found, named "Ask her for the reagent". This is usually caused by following an outdated diff or history link to a page that has been deleted. If this is not the case, you may have found a bug in the software. Please report this to an administrator, making note of the URL.

The link wasn't red and I tried refreshing several times to see if if it was a momentary glitch, but it kept happening, so I decided to report it here. I hope this is the correct procedure.

The page in question is and I got to it from

Featured Stories

I believe the inyashas fantasy land story being on the Previous Featured Stories page is a mistake. It doesn't appear to have shown up on the Featured CYOA Nominations page, the grammar is laughably poor, and if my assumptions are correct, it seems to have been written by an InuYasha fan who can't even spell the name of his favorite show. I would correct this myself, but I know you're usually pretty on top of things, so I just wanted to make sure it was allowed to stay up in error. I don't want to step on your toes or anything. --Cannon 06:19, 7 January 2011 (UTC)


I just wanted to alert you that Felix342018 changed the links in Plan B-Attack to go to an external website. I reverted his edit. It seems fairly clear to me that he has no intention of making any productive contributions. I believe you have the power to put an end to this, yes? --Cannon 07:08, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Oops on link removal

I only discovered that there were few or no dark alleys in the part of Manhattan relevant to Worlds End by looking it up in Google Street View, but I tried to preserve the story by relocating the action. (If you were to walk to the Hudson River from the Port Authority, which direction would you go in? West. Which street would you take? Probably somewhere around 42nd. Thus the editing decision there.) I try not to remove links/ rip pages out, though. Rickyrab 04:22, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

That being said, sorry about the page loss. Rickyrab 04:27, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Sexyslut, Hey Paltypus. I am sooo sorry for my grammar issues. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make up for it! Thanks

from qazed1

I'm not entirely certain of what you mean. Your one message said that I'll be banned if I use a certain title. I do not understand completely but I believe that you meant that this title is taken. also, I believe that this title is valid. I'm quite confused so please respond when you can.

  • If it does not link to a page, then the title is not taken, and there is no reason you can't use it. Platypus, I don't think you can possibly justify trying to ban somebody for using a certain title, because either it won't work and will simply be a link to an existing story or there are no rules about it.

Help Wanted

Hello, I'm a new member named Ty. I have a basic idea of how to use the site, but I was wanting to tell you any and all contributions to Ty's Story is greatly appreciated. It's in the adult category, but that's just so it won't have limitations. I wasn't planning on it being a sex story, but thanks to other members, certain parts of it are. -User:TyCampbell

Fixing that

I'm fixing that on future pages, Platypus. By the way, what do you think of my story so far? I've never really written this kind of stuff before, but the opportunity was too perfect. --DickHardy 09:59, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Missing category

Sorry Platypus, I've been trying to make sure I'm putting categories on all my pages - either I've missed some or I haven't been doing it right the whole time! Seems I'm not the only one who's been having trouble with this... I'll look into it before I continue my story, but if you could point out exactly where I've gone wrong that would help a lot! --baercalanie 12:53, 7 July (EST)

Hey Platypus, you replied to my story. I'm still new at this, so you want to help me with my story?--Nousherwan

Sorry about that, still new at this. Thanks for the fix. --Sisauq 16:31, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

I'll start to add categories in the future as well, feel free to help edit my story. I could use someone whos a "grammar nazi" --BFEL 19:47, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

Hey, Platypus. You've been sending me messages about categories and i'm sorry because i'm new at this. Please tell me how to make a category in every page. I will not continue my CYOA until I find out. --Gummibear123 16:49, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Hello im a new user here. platypus one of the stories im going to be editing is The Kitty in the Window sometimes i forget to put category on my pages ill try to remember in the future. user trickertreee 8:31 july15 2011

Thanks for the reminder! --Alexico 16:13, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

Article Tags

I can't help but notice some heavy abuse of the article tagging system. I was wondering if the TagNimbus system had some sort of way to edit the tags on an article because there's been many times that I've seen things that are out of place and could use removing. Take the tags for the Sandbox for example... --TheElderOnes 03:39, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Hello, Platypus!

Hello again Platypus!

Oh dear. I see what you mean now and I feel really silly. I will ensure that it does not happen again! I will also go to scour my posts and fix them in case you didn't already. Thank you for telling me; criticism goes a long way in helping me get better!

NeonxXxLights 8:51pm, 3 May 2011 (-5GMT Eastern)

Whose adventure?

I'll not do that again, then (at least within the scope of SSR as it's your baby) - to be fair, though, I have seen plenty of published CYOA stuff that has a similar situation of you-the-reader choosing things that are completely outside you-the-character's control, though to be honest it did always feel a bit weird to me at the time. --Sisauq 20:45, 4 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi platypus im new

Hi platypus im new here and everyone is saying u help us out So any advice or anything

Vinnievu141: Hi platypus, I have just received your notice and would like you to tell me how to make the status bar that I added on Smutty Sex Romp. Thank you for realizing my error.

Sorry if i have ripped out any of your pages as you know im new here, and i dont know how to check the history of a page. user Trickertreee

Your Assistance

Thank you for your assistance in finding errors in my story pages. As I am new to this mistakes are bound to slip thru and as you have taken great pride in pointing out mine have more then their fair share. I welcome any tips and corrections you are willing to provide I simply and respectfully request that you keep the sarcasm to a minimum. I am working daily to improve my proof reading methods to make sure there are less and less mistakes. As diligently as I am working to that end I am only human. I know you are a contributor and editor just doing your job; you have my thanks for that. I have enjoyed my time here and hope to stay a while and continue to contribute.


Platypus, I have just gone over your latest revisions in my texts and can see where most of my mistacks are coming from and why they are not being caught by my spell and grammer check. I will continue to strive to improve the quality of my posts. As you are going through them and editing them, I hope you are also enjopying the content. Thanks again! --Blackdragon25 19:51, 27 May 2011 (UTC)


I am trying to figure out the system, but still am making errors. Thank you for your patience.

Sorry for making trouble for you, Platypus. I know it must be hard for you to keep track of everyone and everything on this site and I thank you for that. --Gummibear123 16:53, 4 June 2011 (UTC) P.S. You are soooooo freaking stupid! just kidding! I love you so much. (not really cause i barely know you but your still AMAZING!)

Thank you for your advice i will put the kitty pic on all my pages for Kitty in the Window.Trickertreee

Sorry about the grammar errors, man. Sometimes my brain moves faster that I type. Not to mention that I'm kind of relearning my grammar skills, considering I haven't really written anything besides my signature for quite awhile. I should probably preview before I save and re-read it. --DeadFishV 02:39, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

DON'T delete my TURNMOUSE part of my story

It's my story, and why did you delete it? Please tell me. If it REALLY was abandoning I abandoned the rest of my story for a while too! hahaha that's funny!

Creating A Story

Hey Platypus I was just wondering if you could tell me how to create a story from scratch not editing other people's stories. Thanks! --Kjsoccer97 19:28, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Hey Platypus I was wondering what the site's rules concerning linking pictures to the stories. I know how to do it from the tutorial but don't want to violate any rules in the process so I wanted to check with you before actually trying it. Thanks --Blackdragon25 17:07, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

Possible bug

Hey platypus, I some how got signed out and noticed that when I am not signed in that half the links in both stories I am working on disappeared in the catagory page of the story. I signed back in and they all showed up again. Is there a difference on how the pages are catagorized when signed in verses signed out? I also noticed this was also true of the sub catagories as well. Just wanted to bring it to your attention. Thanks! --Blackdragon25 03:21, 18 June 2011 (UTC)


I am not new to the different types of wikis: wikipedia, mariowiki, zeldawiki, etc...: but i am new to CYOA and i just started yesterday, and i'm also having trouble typing on my nintendo wii since my laptop was damaged and resent to the manufacturer, but i really must thank you for what you told me (you could said something mean and i really wouldn't care all that much.) But really thank you for your advice PLATYPUS. By green pickle man


Yeah, sorry about that page blanking thing. It was really late when I was doing it and I thought it would be fairly obvious what was going on when I was looking over the recent changes page. I guess it could have caused a bit of a panic attack, though. I'll remember to be more transparent in future. Vortex 20:02, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

how do i respond to the message you sent me?

how do i respond to the message you sent me? ive looked for about 10 minutes all over the site and i have no idea how to send messages.

   thank you. Oh and i will be at comic con until sunday so by around 10 tonight should be all that im contributing for awhile
