    It took long enough, the SB and spinoff forums have had that feature for years...

    But, at least he was nice enough to add it. Now if only he added the thing that would shrink long quoted posts automatically then it would be amazing.

    Or the ability to paste in spreadsheets as tables.

    Hadn't even noticed it until you mentioned its existence but now that I know about it, it is surprisingly useful/interesting to look at. :p

    What subforum should I place my collaborative AH timeline post? It's a pop-culture and entertainment-focused timeline set in a world where the Fifth Great Awakening caused a draconian restrictions on entertainment.

    User X_X was a sock puppet of a user that spammed dozens of posts all over the forum about a week ago after they were banned.

    Pretty sure X_X isn't the sockpuppet, but rather the merely the last person who replied in that thread that the actual sockpuppet posted in before the whole thing was deleted.

    I have a question, does the forum has a Welcome and Farewells sections? Or you just can start posting everywhere? I mean, I always want to post something but I fear that it won’t be in the appropriate section. Thanks for answering.

    You can just starting posting anywhere, if you're unsure about where something should go, you can ask or look at the other threads.

    I have a question. Is there a way to change the background of the site to be something darker. And less blindingly white and migraine inducing, because I can barely last ten minutes without thinking of taking migraine pills. I tried looking through preferences and other profile option but I could not find anything.

    Most computers and mobile phones should have an invert colour option that should give you black and orange rather than white and blue.

    I have my computer set to scale down the amount of blue light around 9pm, it gives the screen an orange tint that is easier on the eyes especially later in the day. I'd recommend enabling that if you have migrated options. It should be in a blue light setting somewhere.

    There are also indoor sunglasses that filter out blue light to keep off eye strain which would probably be more effective.

    @CalBear I want to create an ASB about a world where every ethnic and religious group become countries, but I don't want to receive a kick. What should I do?

    Just go with rules and you are fine. Such scenario is totally acceptable so long when you are not promoting genocides or totalitarian ideologies.

    The Turtledoves. People nominate stories based on what they think are the best of the best, and the people of the site vote on it. If you win, it basically means that your story is the crème de la crème of the many works on this site.
