Modified Literotica Background Launched

Friday, April 18th, 2008

This news isn’t earth shattering, and I wouldn’t call it a new feature, but it is something that we’ve been working toward for a few years. After many designs and re-designs and re-re-designs, we have finally launched a new version of the Literotica story background. You should be able to see it on the newest stories on Literotica.com right now, and on all stories within the next few days.

Here is an example of a new story with the new background.

In case you don’t notice the difference, look at the blue area to the right of the story. Now compare that background image to the old one, which you can still see on the Literotica Story Index page.

Some Literotica readers have been making requests for a less bright background just about since we launched the site. Others have asked us not to change it because they are used to it. We hope that this new version is a balance between the requests of those two groups of users. The new background definitely is a change, but we think it’s a pretty subtle change.

Also, the fact that the new background design is a bit lighter than the old one seems to go nicely with the addition of the Similar Stories feature, the first Literotica feature that appears to the right of the main story area. Computer monitors have gotten a lot bigger since Literotica first launched, so there is some room over to the right of the story area that could be used by new features (like Similar Stories) in the future.

Please have a look and let us know what you think. Thank you for the continued feedback, as always.

John Stagliano Indicted for Obscenity, Launches Website

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008

From AVN News:

John Stagliano (aka Buttman) has launched a new Website at DefendOurPorn.org in response to federal obscenity charges filed against him and his company Evil Angel. The site includes news updates, links to media coverage of the case and a ‘Contact Your Congressman’ page.

The full AVN story is here.

The latest updates on the charges against him can be found in this AVN story.

In 2008 the government is still wasting time and tax payer money trying to stop adults from viewing videos of other consenting adults. How sad.

Literotica Story Tags Portal Updated

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008

The Literotica Story Tags portal has been updated. The new version of the feature is live on the site now. This version is redesigned and includes the ability to browse stories using multiple tags and a way to easily add and remove tags from your search.

Please take a look and let us know what you think and report any problems you find. As with other updates, we’d also like to hear/read suggestions for the next version.

Thanks and enjoy!

Literotica “Similar Stories” Beta Launch

Friday, April 11th, 2008

Just a quick update on the latest Literotica features. In the next few days we are getting ready to roll out a few new things in BETA. The first of those just went live on the site: Similar Stories

Take a look at this Literotica story to see what it looks like.

At the bottom right of the story, below the voting element and to the right of the comment element, there is a small section showing stories that are related or similar to this story.

Please take a look at the feature and let me know what you think. We hope that it will be another tool to help readers find what they are looking for within the ever-growing collection of published fiction at Literotica.

More new feature launches coming very soon. Check back! :)
