Party Games Website Update:
  • About online shop for party games website and card manufacturer research, long time ago, I researched some custom card manufacturers for one of my clients. Although the research was very specific, but still I think it can help you. Fortunately I have successfully retrieved those searched results from my sent mails. Please let me know if you need these results.
  • Approved 2 more drinking stories from Mechanical Turk, researched one photo for each story and submitted to party games website. 
  • I think now we have enough drinking stories under drinking stories invitation and I think we should now ask for other stories. Please advise.
  • Distributed more pages via RSS.
  • Here is recently published drinking story: You Need a Damn Ashtray
  • Over the past few days party games website has been receiving so many stories by a Visitor (Lynn). But most of these submissions are pretty adult and explicit. However today I have published one of his story after some reworking because it was not that adult. Please have a review. He also submitted an original photo of the story, but it was too explicit. Therefore, I removed it from the submission. Didn’t distribute it via RSS
  • There was another story submitted by another visitor, but that was too explicit. Therefore I moved it to explicit content folder and then delete the submission.
