### New Story Challenge: Halloween 2023 🎃
The newest story challenge has opened for submissions! We can't wait to read what stories you come up with for this coming Halloween. What's *your* Halloween story?
The deadline to submit is roughly six weeks from now, on the evening of Monday October 30th... aka, the day _before_ Halloween. Final results will be announced two weeks after challenge submissions conclude, on the eve of Sunday November 12. Be sure to click and check out the challenge rules, too, for more details about how it all works — including how the Halloween challenge does *not* hide author names, and you *can* submit more than one story if you wish!
If you have additional questions, feel free to reach out via [the Story Challenge help desk thread](https://forum.gaykinkystories.com/t/the-story-challenge-help-desk-thread/5545/) on the site’s forum.
Let the challenge begin!
This is an R rated site. If you are not 18 or older, do not enter.
Are you over 18 years of age?
Some of your stories are still waiting to get published or approved.
Adding images to your story
Add images to illustrate your story visually. Click or touch an image in the story to zoom it to full size.
To insert an image at the current cursor position in the story, click the editor's image button.
You can either link to an image on the web or upload images to our server.
Press the upload button or drag and drop file(s) into the dialog.
Images are rescaled and compressed to save server space. The storage budget for all images is 2 MB (~ 10-20 images). Sponsors are granted a much larger budget.
Linking web images
Linked images don't count against your storage budget. However, images on the web may be taken down anytime.
Paste the link into the 'Image URL' field. Only direct links to image files work, a preview will show up in the dialog for correctly linked images.
Rules for images used
Nudity, sex and even porn is fine
All persons shown have to appear 18 or older
No violence, no injuring persons or animals
Select & upload image
Uploading images to our server to be used in your stories is only possible if you're registered and logged in!
Link to Image
Invalid Image URL!
It is important that your story is formatted properly and to use many paragraph breaks!
A person's speech is usually put into its own paragraph. No paragraph should contain more than 5-10 lines of text! A wall of texts without paragraphs will be denied!
To add a paragraph break, you have to add an empty line between them.
Add a horizontal line to separate sections. Embed an image at the current cursor position. Add a link to another webpage at the current cursor position.
Use the other buttons on the editor toolbar to use bold, italic, underline and other text styles. The preview on the right side shows the effect of your formatting right away.
This Markdown cheat sheet gives an overview of the most common advanced syntax elements (some of the features, like 'tables' or 'code blocks', are disabled intentionally).
