RP Interaction Preference and Spoilers
« Topic Start: June 13, 2020, 07:28:02 PM »
Two new additions to the message interface today:

  • RP Interaction Preference: This will only show up when you are writing a Roleplay. It lets you indicate to what extent you are open to outside participants in your roleplay, and has three options:
    • private—Please do not interrupt this roleplay. It may be a solo RP, or may be between a group of people who are collaborating on it, but while you are invited to read it, and if it is being roleplayed as happening in public can even roleplay a reaction, you are asked not to interrupt. Please do be respectful of others, and if your roleplay is taking place in the open, please think twice before using this setting.
    • public—You may join in this roleplay, but it is polite to ask first. This is the default setting.
    • invite—You are invited to join in this roleplay! The roleplayer is actively seeking interaction and engagement! Please remain respectful, and do not attempt to hijack or sabotage other players' roleplays.
    Roleplays with an interaction preference set will have a coloured border and a small indicator text at the top clearly stating what the author's intent is. It is our hope that this will help to clarify expectations and increase positive interactions.
  • Spoiler warning: This has been added as an option under Content Warnings, by player request. It will simply act as another content warning, in case you wish to roleplay a shocking twist, but avoid having other players accidentally spoil themselves by reading it prematurely.
