It's good to have another writer contributing to the site. There are some issues with your contribution to Public Nudity. On the page: Public Nudity/Stay and chat, you have set the links up so they point to the page that you are already on . . . so they lead nowhere. The part before the pipe character | needs to be a unique page where the reader will go when they click on the link. The part after the pipe character | is what the reader sees. You changed the part after the pipe character; but not the part before the pipe character. You also forgot to add the category to the page. Please read the Format Rules for the site so you can learn how to use the site to tell interactive stories the right way. Again, good to have you here. If you have any questions feel free to ask them on my talk page. --Elerneron (talk) 23:38, 3 May 2019 (CEST)

The only problem with the entry on the Meta Stories page was that you were not referencing the category properly in the PagesInCat command. I change your category on the pages to match the short name for the story. If you would rather, you could change it back; then change the reference under PagesInCat. --Elerneron (talk) 15:45, 13 May 2019 (CEST)

Thank you. Still I'm not sure how it works, but I'll try my best to learn. --Grinsekats

I'm here to help if you need it. Also, when responding to someone it is best to do it on their talk page instead of on your own talk page under their comment. By editing their talk page, they get an alert the next time they visit the site. On your page they do not. You're doing great so far. Everything has a learning curve. We don't expect perfection here. --Elerneron (talk) 17:59, 14 May 2019 (CEST)


Saw your comment on Elerneron's page.

1. For an 11 year old, that depends entirely on what part of the year it is and when their birthday is. 11 is the age at which you start the 6th grade, but they could be in 5th grade if it's the end of the year. I would suggest making it 6th grade, because 5th grade is a strange grade where there are some school districts that place the 5th grade in elementary school, and other school districts that place it in middle school. 6th grade is pretty clean-cut a middle school grade in the US.

2. Most US hospitals have a private room for every adult patient. There are some very rare cases where there are double rooms available if the patient decides they want to be in a double room.

3. That one's on you man. It's your story, you decide where you want the parameters to be. That said, I do have some skill in writing enough to offer advice, but I would need to know a little more about the direction you are planning to go with this whole thing.

I have to respectfully disagree with at least part of Jemini's answer above.

1. Where I am from (and quite a few other places) 6th grade is in Elementary School. I have personally never known 5th grade to be in Middle School. If you check this wikipedia page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Education_in_the_United_States you'll note that 5th grade is completely in Elementary School while 6th grade is either in Elementary School or Middle School / Junior High School. (I personally attended a Junior High School that was composed of only 7th and 8th grade . . . which is a strange arrangement.)

2. Every hospital I have been in or visited have a shared room. 2 occupants per room. Private rooms are available but are costly. If you are not well off you will usually have a shared room. Being admitted to the hospital at all is becoming more and more uncommon. They tend to prefer to treat a patient and release them whenever possible. During this type of experience (not staying in the hospital overnight) the patient is generally in a room by themselves while awaiting treatment or being treated.

3. Any level or type of power can work well in a story. It mainly depends on how you want to portray it. It's really up to you.
