a simpler post editor! we dont need a zillion options shown all the time!
No you're right we don't need it all the time. But if we remove the options and that one time we do want to use it... what then?
You do raise some good points though - I'm a fan of minimalism but I've tried to avoid touching the editing options on the forum because there are features that people would probably want to use at some point.
I agree that lists can be done better than they currently are, maybe markdown
inspired syntax is the way to go?
If there are others who agree I'll make some changes to the forum. I'm already looking at what I can improve now and you'll probably seem some small subtle changes over the next week.
