I'm glad ya like that. If they are actually considering a writing portal, I was thinking it could be a good way to allow some writer input on it, hands on and maybe lighten the load for a nonwriter who would have to implement it. Else they might have to just try and guess what kind of features a writer would like.
From what I remember of the program, it seems well suited to writers willing to edit their work, if nothing else. I didn't like the way it layered graphics with the alpha channel but for finished illustrations, I would think it would work well. I would guess that you'd want to at least put your own buttons to navigate from pages and back to tables of content, for larger works.
Another thing I was pondering is that one feature that a writing portal could possibly have that the others wouldn't, is being accessable to the blind and visually impaired, though I'm not sure how their software works, though I've seen them on some other forums and use text based game clients.
It seems like the audio was disabled on the free version.
Worst case, I guess it could be rated as a game. I'm a fan of some of the older and newer text based games as well. So that would be win-win for me. XD
Text is so under-rated these days.
I'm not real familiar with NG. For the past couple years, I've usually just stopped in from time to time and dropped stuff in the dump, tried out converted files or just tinkered with the portal settings. I also checked out some stuff other people do. Whatever happens, I hope ya guys come up with something to showcase the writing.
