    Scribble Hub is a project I've been working on for about a year and it's finally ready to be released! It's a site for authors to post their original stories and readers to find exactly what they are looking for. I've provided authors with a ton of features to help them as authors and a ton of features for readers to provide them with an enjoyable reading experience.


    Author Features
    • Send out alerts to your followers to keep them updated on your stories.
    • Receive alerts for new comments, reviews, profile posts, etc...
    • Get daily statistics on pageviews, comments and favorites for your stories.
    • Save chapters as drafts so you can come back and edit them later.
    • Schedule chapters.
    • Restore previous revisions of your chapters.
    • Create a glossary for your stories.
    • You can add Patreon and Paypal links if you accept donations. 100% of that money is yours. I won't take any of that money from you.
    • ...and more!
    Reader Features
    • Reading list which is very similar to NU.
    • Optional auto bookmarking feature.
    • Very detailed series finder feature.
    • Detailed stats on each story.
    • Get alerts from authors you follow.
    • Connect to authors via the social tools.
    • Sort reviews by ratings.
    • Filter out basically everything. For example, if you only like the "Isekai" genre but don't want "mature" (genre) stories, you can filter out your homepage to work like that.
    • Basically every good feature on NU.
    • ...and more!
    Why pick Scribble Hub over the other platforms that already exists?
    • Scribble Hub is backed by NU. There will be links around NU to help promote Scribble Hub. NU gets millions of pageviews daily so that's extra exposure for your stories.
    • I will be spending a lot of money on advertising. I believe that Scribble Hub has a lot of potential so I'm willing to invest a lot of money on advertising it. This is an addition to getting help from NU.
    • Contests! Once there are enough users, contests will be run with real money as prizes to help motivate authors to write.
    • A forum for authors and readers. A forum will be opened in the future. I just need more users to join first before I open it.
    • Exclusive programmer (me) that is an actual reader! It's true that I haven't read for awhile because of how busy I've been but I still consider myself a reader. As an experienced programmer, I can implement pretty much anything. You just have to convince me that it's a good idea.
    On the same note, you don't need to pick Scribble Hub over other platforms. Scribble Hub doesn't prevent you from posting on other platforms. The early users are already building their followers so it'll be easier for them to promote their current and future works. One profile post and an alert gets sent to all of their followers. I've also seen authors and readers give feedback to other authors which is pretty nice to see.

    I really do think it's a good site and it can help everyone involved if it takes off so I would be grateful if you could recommend the site to others if you like the site as it would save me some money on advertising. This is just a starting point, I'll be listening to suggestions and improving the platform as time goes by. There is no such thing as guaranteed success so I'll be working very hard!

    I know I'm shamelessly using NU to help promote the new site but once Scribble Hub gets large enough, it'll return the favor by promoting NU. The bigger NU is, the more it can help small/medium sized groups get more exposure in my opinion. I need NU's backing because NU is huge. Don't worry, I won't go crazy with the promotion. Just a few links around NU... :sweating_profusely:

    With that said, please visit https://www.scribblehub.com/ and check out the features. There are too many features to list here.

    Happy New Year!!! :blobparty:

    (I'll get back to adding features to NU once Scribble Hub settles down. I needed a break from NU and Scribble Hub was my break.)

    This feature sounds particularly neat, if I understood it correctly.

    It's like how translators translate other projects. I just wanted a break from NU.

    Here's an example: https://www.scribblehub.com/series/1686/lord-and-dragon/glossary/

    i really want to ask, what programming languages does Tony know?
    - it should be HTML, JavaScript, CSS, some type of database like SQL and what more?

    @Tony
    Question about scribblehub:
    Does the accounts of NU work on the page or we have to make completely new ones?
    the "dark theme" to read a chapter... only 2 icons have to be made for one be inside the popup panel in the "Reading Options" with a JS trigger to change the css background color for ("page","main read chapter"."wi_news_body") to #000 (or preferably a gray one like #222222) and changing all of the text to #ffff (or preferably a gray one like #bbbbbb) for the "wi_news_body" and changing the icon for the other one; through it will be great if the setting can be saved for reading multiple chapters you don't need to click the icon every chapter

    I won't call it shameless. It is the same as a light novel promoting a manga and vice versa.
    Great work. I am still launching my competing site like I told you about a year ago but gladly since I talked to you, I will be launching something completely different instead of something redundant.
    Great post, it reminded me of yet another thing I will have to do differently ( in the case of cash prizes) :sweating_profusely:
