Disclaimer: When commenting in this topic for the first time, you should include a quick vote as the very first character of your post - that makes it easy for me to figure out the overall enthusiasm for this particular idea. 1: Do Not Want - I hate this idea and would block it/leave the site if you added it 2: Do Not Care - I have no love for this idea, but no real hate either 3: Kind Of Want - This might be a good idea, but there are other things to do first 4: Do Want - I like this idea, and think you should work on it 5: Do Want Now - I love this idea, and think you should do it as soon as possible
Description: Upgrade the 2006 post engine to allow more features.
Rationale: The current post engine was last upgraded in 2006, and has fallen far behind. A new engine is needed to allow for more modern posting features such as spoiler tags, message quoting, and (limited) HTML.
Downside: Would require a lot of back-end work. Too many quotes and spoilers can over-clutter content. --- Um, not to criticize science or anything, but wouldn't it be easier just to call it "the pink one"?
2: Do Not Care - I have no love for this idea, but no real hate either
It's not anything that is completely necessary. Some things would be nice, but a complete overhaul would only serve to clutter things up in the long-run. --- Never use a hammer to smooth out the lumps on a newborn baby's head.
5 Would be easier to hide spoilers, wouldn't have to worry about if I hit enter enough times, and it wouldn't stretch the page. --- http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q217/Kard8p3/kard8p3tif.png http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2576/3883680446_73c07afb70.jpg
3. Most everyone has their own style of showing someone's earlier post message. Spoiler tags would be great though. --- Best NPC Line Ever: You have legs! ~Final Fantasy I NES, Onrac, Old Woman next to magic shops.
If I can split my vote, 4 for spoilers and 1 for everything else. --- Petition to show Contributor Pages in profiles of closed accounts: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/genmessage.php?board=7&topic=45541548
