Downtime

You might have noticed the blog was down earlier today. Nothing serious, just some kind of technical problem at the host. They’re aware of it, but I’m not sure if it’s completely fixed yet, so don’t panic if I disappear again for a bit.

Glossary

Just for fun, I’d thought I’d throw together a glossary of Nude World Order related terms.

Permanently naked: Legally prohibited from wearing clothes. Either voluntarily or not.
“She’s permanently naked.”
Permanently bottomless: Legally prohibited from wearing anything that covers the genitals or anus, but required to wear a top. Almost always a punishment.
“He was sentenced to five years permanently bottomless.”
Permanently topless: Legally prohibited from wearing anything that covers the breasts. Almost always voluntary.
“I’m looking for a permanently topless receptionist.”
Permanent nudity: Noun form of permanently naked.
“I’m going to sign up for permanent nudity.”
PN: Permanently naked. Often used in the compound “PN girl”.
“I’m going to the PN Rights march on Friday.”
PN girl: A permanently naked young woman. Some might consider it disrespectful, but plenty PN girls happily refer to themselves s such.
“I’m the only PN girl where I work.”
Permanude: Casual term for a permanently naked person, or short for permanently naked.
“So this permanude at the mall says…” “You’re gonna be permanude? Wow!”
New laws: Unofficial term for recent nudity related legal changes. Basically anything that’s different from the real world.
“The new laws have almost made commercials worth watching.”
Register: Voluntarily sign up to be permanently naked.
“I finally decided to register.”
Unregistered nudity: Nudity not sanctioned by the new laws.
“Unregistered nudity is prohibited on this beach.”
Taking clothes away: Common way to describe nudity used as a punishment by schools or parents. Not technically the same as permanent nudity, though similar in effect.
“I can’t believe they took my pants away for that!”
Clothing status: Official term the state of being permanently naked, topless, or bottomless, or not.
“We don’t discriminate based on clothing status.”
Nude: Not a legal term, but some people prefer it to “naked”. May imply it’s voluntary.
“I’ve been permanently nude for three years, it’s great!”
Newd Etiquette: How to behave when permanently naked, or around those who are. Most commonly applied to keeping your legs apart when sitting, which is considered polite.
“My friends say I’m still too shy about my body, it’s hard to get used to Newd Etiquette.”
French Style: Refers to wearing a normal top or dress with the neck opened wide to expose and frame the breasts.
“This dress may be plain, but wearing it French style makes all the difference!”
Strict/Relaxed: Different “levels” of nudity, used in some jurisdictions. Strict means no accessories. Relaxed allows any clothing, as long as it doesn’t cover the key areas.
“I got a fucking strict nudity sentence. I can’t even wear shoes except for safety.”
“I went for the relaxed registration. I’m showing off my goodies in style.”
Spreadie: A social media fad where you take a picture with your legs spread. Most traditionally it’s done with two friends holding you up.
“I can’t believe Liz just posted a spreadie! She was always so shy.”

Did I miss anything?

New Discussion Page

So I went ahead and added a discussion page. Just something very simple for now, it just uses the regular WordPress comment system, the only difference is now there’s a dedicated place for comments that don’t relate to a specific picture. If it sees significant activity I’ll look into the possibility of doing something more full-featured.

And to accommodate the longer discussions I hope to see, I made a couple changes to the comment system. If there are more than 10 top-level comments on a single post, older comments get moved to a new page. Also the newest comment will be listed first (previously it was oldest first). These changes are site-wide since I don’t see an easy to to change it for only the discussion page. Hopefully that won’t cause any confusion, but I figured I’d give you all a head-up about the change.

So, got anything to say, or ask? Dive in. The new page is accessible from the top menu and currently highlighted with cute little gold stars for your convenience.

Discussion Area?

Currently there isn’t a good way to have discussions or ask questions that aren’t related specific pictures. That semi-off topic conversation about PN-like movies a little while back got me thinking, would it be good to have something like that here? Theoretically I could set up an actual forum, but I’ve never done anything like that before. So at least as a first step I’d probably just stick with the existing comment system, but create a specific page for general discussion. Would anyone be interested in that?

Possible Email Outage

Just a quick note that I’m changing some things around on the hosting. The main site and submissions shouldn’t be effected, but if anyone is using the the hostx.me email address (which works as a forwarder) it’s possible that’ll be disrupted for a day or so. So if you try to send me anything there and either get a failure message or no response at all, just try again in a couple days and it should be working again.

Update: Everything seems to be in order now.

Milestone

This was actually a little while ago, but I’ve been a little busy lately and just noticed. Over 1000 pictures on the blog now. For comparison I had well over 2000 back on tumblr, so I shouldn’t really be surprised, but it’s still kind of amazing. Thanks to all the contributors, as well as though who just read to blog. After all, this wouldn’t be worth doing without an audience.

CAPTCHA

The brute force log-in attempts continue. Lockouts didn’t really help because they’re apparently using a wide selection of IP addresses. I didn’t want to do this, but I’ve added a CAPTCHA to the log-in page. Hopefully it won’t be too annoying. Once again, let me know if there are any problems.

As a “spoonful of sugar” I’ve given it a humorous and relevant word list. For example the CAPTCHA might be “naked boobs”. Obviously this isn’t terribly secure, but I can’t imagine this is more than a low-effort attack of opportunity, so hopefully that’ll be enough.

Apologies

This post,”How to Sit” was intended to have two images, but only one appeared. This has now been corrected. Please follow that link to see the second part.

In other news, I’ve got an unusual number of failed log-ins recently. I assume it’s a spambot or something trying to steal accounts. As a result, I have made the rules a little stricter. You get 4 retries before you’re locked out, one hour the first time, and one day if it happens again in short timeframe.  If any real users are having trouble logging in, don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m sure I can help you sort it out.

About Titles

Someone recently raised the issue that post titles can sometimes spoil the on-image caption, e.g. by giving away a key part of the story in a less interesting way. This is actually something I’ve tried to keep in mind, but evidently I haven’t avoided it completely. I’ve actually seen this on other sites too, where titles detract from the content. I hope I’m not doing the same thing unknowingly. Titles are kind of necessary on this platform, but obviously being the one who posts it, I experience this blog in a different way from readers, so I’d like to hear what you all think about this. Any specific examples of spoiler-titles would be appreciated, as well as general thoughts on the matter.
