Me and Atresica wrote almost all the story fragments it uses ourselves, although some were inspired by other works of fanfiction, and in a one case a published work.
We have only had one story section submitted by a fan so far.

The website was coded by myself, Atresica did most of the art with animation assistance from http://wolthera.info

Video edited together by me, although the music is a unsourced work I found (no artist specified in the file, and no matches on youtubes content ID). Theres a chance my video will be taken down if the copyright is ever discovered :P (but for the moment I dont care as the music is perfect for this)

Incredible work there, thumbs up!! On both writing and the algorithm behind it.
You know how long it took to accomplish such project?

Been working on/off a few years.
Most work done at the end of 2014 though - about 3 months I think in total for the bulk of it.

However, its also using my SuperSimpleSemantic project which I have also been working on a few years;

https://bitbucket.org/lostagain/supersimplesemantics

Codebase is pretty messy, but SSS is very useful for this sort of thing - lets us casually, say, insert a weapon name into a bit of text and the weapon will be pulled from a list of weapons intersected with a list of items appropriate for the current setting.
(So if its generating a fantasy fic, you might get a magic wand, if its generating a medieval fic you might get a sword).

Version 6b out now!

Aside from the big updates of version 6 (you-fic pronoun support & syncing styles to URL), this version also has more presets (getting crowded in that box!).

We also have Facebook and GooglePlus pages;

Because, you know, you need social network malarkey these days to get those hip youngsters

Also Youtube;

Just did another update, but this time Id appreciate some peoples help!

1. Anyone with a mobile phone (not tablet) does www.fanficmaker.com work for you?
I updated the site to be friendly for mobile, but I only tested it on a HTC Desire S.
Id appreciate knowing if it works on other phones!

2. Anyone who uses a ad-blocker or anti-tracking plugin in their browser. does www.fanficmaker.com work for you?
We noticed that "Blur" (which used to be called DontTrackMe) stops the whole site from working. Which is bad
I want to know if anyone else gets this with their browsers. We do use google adsense, but thats just for a small advert in the corner - its not tied to the site in any way, so I am really confused why any plugins should disable the whole site.

Cheers for any feedback!

Tried on my phone, Nexus 5 using Chrome and all good.

One thing I notice in both, phone or pc. It starts to show the fiction text, shows the "loading" but then it takes a long time to show the rest.

No ad-blocker here, but the overall site its slow to download the images and show the content. Specially if it's the first run and images are not cached.

The first story generated also loads a semantic database of words so I think that might be the main reason why its slow the first time. If you goto settings and then hit makestory without reloading the page you should see it substantially quicker. (if not I have another problem)
I might be able to tweak the semantics to load on-the-fly rather then all-at-the-start, which might be a little better.

As for the images, I'll run them though a png optimizer (allthough I think I did already)

Thanks for testing

I noticed!
Got a big spike in traffic and wondered where it came from.

Kinda chuffed, as being a DOA fan, thats the first time I have seen my little site linked without me specifically searching for people linking too it :P

Yup, LoadingReadyRun is great. I was overjoyed at what the fanficmaker inspired. Even had a sort of knock-on effect later too, as Tally becoming Darkmoon later resulted in Kathleen "inverting" herself too to be all happy/overly cheerful - which freaked everyone out.
