    The good:

    • This will cut down on the number of people asking how to create links or post images.
    • Spoiler alerts. Snape kills Dumbledore.

    The bad:

    • It's just as vulnerable to abuse as HTML, but now it is even easier.
    • I think some of the formatting tags aren't closing automatically. Check out this thread.
    • Cluttered. Do we really need all these options?

    The ugly:

    • Comic sans reminds me of JerkCity. DICKS EVERYWHERE HULAGHULAGHULAG

    And... I didn't add page breaks to this shit. Add that to the bad column. What you see is not what you get.

    There seems to be an not-so-inconsistent issue with the (new) editor ...

    As I tried to insert the iPhone 4 video in the other thread a few minutes ago, it died and said this (I had not included the "stack trace") ... in fact, I have found similar error yesterday ...

    Server Error in '/' Application.

    Value cannot be null.
    Parameter name: input


























































































































































    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

    Exception Details: System.ArgumentNullException: Value cannot be null.
    Parameter name: input

    Source Error:

    An unhandled exception was generated during the execution of the current web request. Information regarding the origin and location of the exception can be identified using the exception stack trace below.


    However, when I did it on the (old) forum interface, it worked without any issue ...

    Q: what did I do wrong?

    I have noticed quite a few "strange things" appearing in the forum, and it seems to be related to the HTML handling, like what Dando had said:

    && -- two ampersands on the left

    !!  -- two exclamation marks

    %% -- two percentage signs

    ** -- two asterisks

    ## -- two hash signs


  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)


    <<  >> -- two left arrows and two right arrows

    // || \\

    {{ }}

    ~~ !! @@ ## $$ %% ^^ && ** (( )) __ ++ -- == `` {{ }} [[ ]] :: "" ;; '' << >> ?? ,, .. // \\ ||

    At risk of sounding like an asshole, I gotta say, the implementation of the format editor seems like it was meant to fix something that wasn't really broken in the first place. What was wrong with using HTML? Anything that forces a person to think for a moment before they turn up the font size is a good thing.

    Hahahaha ... and at the risk of being kicked out (for the 5th time, right, Pete?) ... "thinking"? heehee ...

    By the way, noticed a new issue with the fonts in guestbook and PM ... refer to the new thread :)
