Continuing the discussion from The future of IFDB: volunteers wanted:
@8bitAG I didn’t realize you were a CASA admin! I had a question about how best to post invisiclues.
I enjoy writing invisiclues instead of step-by-step walkthroughs. But AFAIK there’s really no good place to upload Invisiclues as a file that people can browse on the web and click on. CASA and IF Archive allow you to upload plain text, but then you have to obscure the spoilers with rot13, and readers have to reveal them by copying and pasting to rot13.com, which is a hassle, especially on a phone.
I believe I could convert my invisiclues to HTML (by hand?!) and upload them to CASA, but even then, readers would have to download the hints and open the downloaded file, because CASA can’t let just anybody upload HTML, for security reasons. That also means that the hints wouldn’t work at all on a phone, where you can’t download an HTML file and open it.
My current solution is to post invisiclues here on this forum using
[spoiler] tags https://intfiction.org/tag/invisiclues but I’d prefer it if there were also a good way to distribute the hints on CASA. Is there a way to do something like this?
