Looks like you've found PaperDemon's dirty little secret...
Welcome to the RedCurtain. An adults only website dedicated to showcasing erotic art, writing, and comics. We invite you to view our large collection of yaoi, gay, anime, and explicit illustrations from the comfort and privacy of your own home. Just don't leave a mess...
invited members to rant about what sucks about PaperDemon. If you haven't already, please let us know what you think could be improved. We've already made a few improvements based on member suggestions.
Today, we kicked off our art/writing challenge for February: Romance. Whether you're in a creative funk or just looking for a fun challenge, participating in our monthly challenges can be a great way to flex your creative muscles. Checkout the details on how to participate.

Christmas has come one day early! (Or maybe this is right on time depending on where you are in the world.)
I am happy to announce that at PaperDemon we finally have a ranking system.
Why? The community discussed adding this feature in the past as a way to encourage members to be more active. Over the last few years, people have been signing up here but not interacting with each other much. Users aren't getting many comments on their submissions. I'm hoping introducing the ranking system will be a good start to help address this problem by incentivizing us all to be more active.
How does it work? Whenever you post a message in the forums or a comment on a submission (art, writing, comics) you'll get a point. As you accrue points, your rank increases. When you encounter other members across PaperDemon, you can hover over their name to see their total points and their rank. Eventually your rank can get you account perks like a premium membership, username colors, your art/writing/comics being promoted, etc.
The feature is pretty basic at the moment but I'll be making improvements to it as time goes on. If you don't see your rank and points in the upper right, try logging out then back in again. Special thanks to all the members who contributed ideas for the ranks. I'm sure we'll add more. Feel free to leave a comment to suggest a new rank be added.
What else are we doing to increase activity? I have plans to start doing Theme Week again to encourage more community activity. If you have any suggestions, please let us know in the forums.
I'm working on a new version of PaperDemon. Please let me know if there's minor or major things I can do to make PaperDemon better. i know we want to get bigger thumbnails throughout the site. Any other things you'd like to see? Rant about the things that drive you nuts so I can get that stuff fixed.
Also, I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy holidays.
