About Me

Hi, ‘Likho’ is the alias I publish my writing under. For the most part I keep real life separate from my online life.

I am making it a habit to publish at least 1,000 words per month, either as a short story or a new chapter. The newest content appears on ArchiveOfOurOwn/Likho first. After typos and errors are edited out, a Neocities page is made for it.

Site policy

I don’t use any javascripting on my website. The only javascripts that would load are embeds on my Microblog. (I embed invidious instead of YouTube.)

My favorite types of websites

I am not actually nostalgic for 90s style web pages. I like websites that load fast and get the point across. That happens to involve plain .html and minimal javascripting if any at all.

RE: “Is this you?”

If you have received my e-mail address from your company’s web form, chances are it is not me.

I am not on the following platforms:

  • Twitter
  • Facebook (or Instagram)
  • Amazon (or Royal Road)
  • Google (or Plus, YouTube)
  • Ko-fi, Patreon, fanbox, any online patronage sites and marketplaces

I am a supporter of free culture. Whenver I can, I would license my work under CC-BY-SA. I don’t have a favorable opinion of copyright and prefer to ignore copyrighted works.

RE: Criticism, concrit, less than positive opinions

I don’t have eggshells regarding critique or criticism. But I won’t agree with every piece of feedback I receive. For both site design and content, honest feedback doesn’t have to be sugarcoated.

RE: Tips, donations, trades, commissions

  • I do not transact online in fiat currency.
  • I transact online exclusively in ‘monnaie libre’ (libre|free currency).
  • I commission other people.
  • I don’t take commissions at the moment.

I only accept Ğ1 at the moment. Check my support page for extra information. (I used to have a Monero address, but its fallen to disuse.)

I’m open to participating in fic trades or exchanges. Most of that takes place on Dreamwidth however. I don’t have a reason to sign up for Dreamwidth when I have Neocities.

RE: Discord

I am not signing up for Discord.

I know it collects user data, doesn’t sell user data, and that it’s revenue comes from “Discord Nitro”. I don’t want my data to be a corporations asset either perpetually held by Discord or transferred once Discord is sold. I don’t care there’s a setting I could turn off or that I should use a VPN+sandbox. That is not actually relevant to why I do not use it.

Within writing and fandom communities, I’m also disappointed in that Discord has become the go-to for communication. When I tried Nanowrimo, the forums were mainly for advertising writing groups which took place on Discord. I am also disappointed in that ArchiveOfOurOwn held an event on International Fanworks Day also over Discord.

I wish fan communities didn’t evaporate from the publicly indexed web to Discord.

RE: NSFW, erotica

I generally do not write NSFW or erotic content, but I also don’t have moral reservations against it.
