  • New 'mask' button

    Following on from a suggestion from Reinart I've added a new button to the forums called "Mask". It works exactly like the Spoiler button, but the intent behind it is for people to use it to mask things which aren't spoilers (hence they don't think to use the spoiler button) but which may (unintentionally) cause offence.

    _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
    _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
    _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

          How to use the spoiler & mask features

          If you don't want to ruin a surprise, ending or other detail, you could:



          If you have a feeling something you are about to write would possibly offend a reader according to your own judgement you could:



          Many members here use these two features as a courtesy to other readers.
          Infinite complexity according to simple rules.

            Nevertheless, it is important to note that just because you hide something behind a 'mask' doesn't mean that it is immune from common decency or the rules of the site. Morgan Kane's point is very important and I'm happy he mentioned it.
