Can We Fix The Formattin' Stuffs?

5 replies
Here's a thing I noticed recently.


As a white space aficionado (an' I refer here to presentational formattin' rather than the vacuum many suppose exists between my ears), natchrlly I click on


SPACE


after evry sentence via the RETURN key.


That way, reader looks in on my expert proclamations an' IS SPARED sum IMPENETRABLE WALL OF TEXT.


(As a confirmed snowflake millennial, gotta tellya -- anythin' looks like a PARAGRAPH of SERIOUSLY BRAIN-TAXIN' HARDCORE INFO gonna stress us out so much we gonna lose the lifespan-enhancin' smarts bustin' outta our ENERGY DRINKS.)


See, cos ima bein' DILIGENT here, factorin' in WHITE SPACE to my generous commentary so's I'm so EASY A READ prolly I could pacify a scratchy cat with worms in its ass.


Thing is, as I factor in alla the white space between my sentences an' paragraphs, whenevah I hit the WHAMMY THIS UP ON WF button, you guys white space on out on my ass kinda by default, meanin' I gotta go edit after I posted so's evil tumbleweed don't sneak in to the vacuous panorama thereby rendered cos we got WHITE SPACE DOUBLE, thereby sullyin' hoomanity on a void-centric ticket.


So I jus' wanna check, Sweetiepoppets -- do we got white space by default now ... or is my INTERFACE WITH REALITY bummed out on sum weirdsy kinda tech-ishoo ticket?


Jus' askin' ...


(an' I will not edit this post after btw, despite the risk of invitin' EVIL SPACE WEEVILS into the immodestly open cracks between what ima sayin' ...)

    It's probably just a forum glitch, but it's also, I think, browser specific. I'm a firefoxer so I have to adjust each post before publishing. I don't think chromites need to do that.

    Maybe there's a browser that shows only white space. Would definitely improve some posts.

  • tbh Firefox regularly packs the glitchtasmal spasms, so mebbe ima look in next time on Chrome or Joyous Unicorn Exotica.

    Meantime, mebbe we could fix up ZEROWeb -- the ultimate meet-up space for NUTHIN'-LOVERS where mindfulness experts, airheads an' nihilists could gather together an' be unenergetically procreative AF.

      Yep, l have firefox as well, and also have this issue, have tried clearing cookies, and updating the browser, and l think l also tried setting everything back to default, with no change.

      But as Mark said, shift-enter gets around the issue.

      Better than using Explorer, that has its own issues.

  • In Firefox, hitting Shift+Enter instead of just Enter eliminates the problem.

    Management is aware of this problem so I hope it's on their to do list but there is a lot on their plate.

      Lol. They have known about it for about a year now. It's not getting fixed.
