Not sure how much I can add to this discussion, but I've been a very active member of this community for the past few years and there is a reason I applied to be an admin of this site when applications for the position were open. It was because I believe this site, one of only three places (excluding some of the new places like that one site orgasmicsweets.com (such a disorganized/constantly changing site which ALREADY has a reputation for stealing the content others make and posting it without attribution) for wedgie fetishists to go en-masse and communicate with others (and much more conducive to mass communication among wedgie fetishists than DA is).

No place is perfect, but the worst thing that can happen is to give up. Things are going to be hard, as they always are when lots of people have opinions on how a thing should be or go, but this site made my life better and I know I helped some people because I had a place for my stories.

I'm always around to help out if you need another pair of hands to help out. But if this site goes then the community will take a huge blow.

Things can always be improved and made better, and whatever happened in the past can be learned from. You have a good community here and a lot of good people who really do need this place.

Let me know if I can help. If not, if the site is shutting down, then the active among us will continue to do what we can to keep things going.

Also, to the person who suggested this site be advertised on LF, there's a good chance most know about WH on there, and even if they don't, WH is viewed somewhat negatively by some on LF who are either against the majority of M/M content and/or its past ideas around the allowed age of members and the age of characters in art. So just keep that in mind.

But either way, this site needs to keep going. It's too important to too many people.
I write wedgie stories.
My DeviantArt: http://hannsgutherson.deviantart.com/
And on LuckyFetish I go by wedgie.
Also, I wrote a story here, but after the site went down a while ago it got compromised. So here is YWNR on LF: http://luckyfetish.com/forum/index.php?topic=5922.0 Also find it on my DA. And I wrote a f/m story for the user kidbird, It's unofficial name is "Allison and Taylor": https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9hZht ... Rhd2M/view
Enjoy.
Send me a PM if you ever need to talk.

I'm not very active anymore which I know isn't the best thing for a moderator. I don't really have a good reason, just as I've gotten older I find my time being dedicated to other parts of my life. I do want to say though that I think you have done a good job of running the site as long as you have Trek and that things have clearly changed from the past, but that they're bound to. If things don't change then you kind of get left behind and become irrelevant. The rise of a lot of social media sites has created a lot more competition for various aspects of the community that the site provided, though I do agree that this is the best place for wedgie stories still. It does have a lot of cliche's, but so does everywhere else I've seen stories, and the ones I find here I usually enjoy more.

For what it's worth, Josh, you're one of the better writers that I can recall on this site. Even though you haven't been active in that aspect for quite some time. Stories of old perhaps had more substance, but back in those days they were also more original. After all the years this site and subsequent kink has been around, stories are bound to sound repetitive.

Also, I second, or rather third, the opinion on the high school names of the boards. With all the age restrictions added over time to make this place more mature, it seems rather ironic to name the boards like everyone here is still in high school when that's far from the case and many members that have been here for quite some time are now in their 20's or 30's or even later.

I’ll add my name to those who want to do away with the high school theme for our site. It had its time, but I think we should move on to something different.

As for the design of the site, I love that we have the customizable options for theme now, but I would love to see more than just a white background with a color highlight. In a perfect world, I would like something with the customization options akin to tumblr, although I know this forum probably doesn’t have that ability without some major coding work. But is there an option for a dark theme?

Just as an FYI, there's a new set of "dark" styles to choose from in your user control panel (the "Digi" styles).

This site was down for a while
Thought I got banned
I don't think I can handle responsibility for that
I wouldn't know what to do
I am the darkness
I'm a bad boy that deserves to get wedgies from cute men

Digi skins look nice. I've switched over to Digi Green.

We've officially plunged into the underworld.
