I'm pretty sure we used to have one of these, but I can't find it and have had a request for such. I stress, that while the producerhood really values your input, much of the building and design here falls on Alanna's back. So her schedule limits how fast we can address suggestions.

First post! Just kidding.

I was wondering - is it possible to allow main accounts to edit their characters' posts? That would be SO convenient for me when I'm trying to board multitask.

Afraid not. But that would be really cool. ;)

Could we have an additional social board to discuss books and movies? We have one for games and such, and I know that I personally am never sure where to put something about a book or a novel I want to discuss with my DP buddies -- something that is even more important to me in times like now when I rarely get to be online and playing WoW but still like to chat with you guys.

I even volunteer to moderate it and such, so that burden wouldn't get dumped on anyone else's already crowded plate!

Random thought after helping Ayra edit a post down to PG-13 that was destined for the Storytelling page.

Another set of boards I frequent has a "Spoiler" UBB code. So, for example, typing this is:

[spoiler] This is a spoiler. [/spoiler]

Then, when the post is published, it shows a quote box but with white text on a white background. To read it, you select the box to high-light the text, making it legible. We could call it something else, but it would allow spoiler talk in the book/movie/game threads and also (maybe?) allow brief worse-than-PG-13 bits in a story. (Specifically, parts that the story loses punch without, such as Ayra's latest.)

Even if we don't want it for the story application, the other part might be nice so newer books/movies/games can be discussed without giving away the plot points.

I've also seen similar code that makes the text black against a black background, but turns the text white when you mouse over it. This allows you to put a spoiler in the middle of other text without requiring the quote box separating it.

This forum has the code. I'll try to find a post using it later.

Because we have an all black background, we have something similar... just make the text black.
Hilight here-> This text would be hidden

Code:
[color=black]This text would be hidden[/color]

Ah, but there's more than one theme, and most of the others don't have a black background. I'm just looking out for those people using non-standard themes. ;)

Yeah, I know. I'll get a real spoiler tag set up as soon as I can.

Okay, it works! Remember to "spoiler" end-quest or end-game stuff too! Some of us still don't know how a lot of these things end.... ;)

But how dow we use it? I know I can go into and edit anyone's post to see how they did such and such, but for those who don't have Padawan skills, what would the membership do?
