Topic: Whitespace

Posts 1 to 12 of 12

Or rather, the fact that the comment system here at nlife seems to utterly ignore it. From what I can tell, only one of any whitespace character is ever included in a post at a time. Therefore,

no matter how many returns I hit (there was at least half a dozen a moment ago, though you'll only see one), we're still stuck with single piece of whitespace that seems to basically function as an HTML paragraph tag set to 1.5 lines.

I realize that this is probably in place to prevent excessive whitespace and/or ASCII art, but it makes creating a readable post of more than a few lines quite a chore. More often that not, you're stuck with a wall of text since the inadequate whitespace doesn't allow for proper paragraph separation.

One line between paragraphs is perfectly adequate.

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.

I can.

Annoying, right?

Yeah, I don't want people having this ability by default.

One is enough, i wholeheartedly agree.


And i like using this --- when i want to show that i'm talking about something entirely different in the same post.


Anyway, while we're at it i noticed something concerning whitespaces too.
When i edit a comment i made on the main page there will always be whitespaces between the lines i seperated with the Enter button. There's no way to make them disappear again since there's nothing shown when i edit my post again. Nothing that'd imply there's a whitespace between these lines at least.

One line works fine and what @Klimbatize just did as an example is why that should remain the case.

This. If a given wall of text isn't interesting enough to keep me reading, no amount of line breaks in between paragraphs is going to help the situation.
