This would facilitate discussion. Cody_Franklin is the discussion facilitator.

I like this. We should also embed a richer text to DDO forums.

What kind of richer text would be necessary? I personally prefer the simplicity of this format. It allows us to bold, italicize and underline, and I can't think of anything else besides various fonts that would be added... but more fonts would probably annoy me. Facebook has proven that people like simplicity (in fact any time changes are made, people complain). I think this works best for DDO. Threads written in Cosmic Sans would give me a headache. I already have a hard time reading what people say when they use horrible grammar (mattrodstrom), or unnecessary quoting (like when the fool starts every response with whosaidit: ). As far as embedded pics, that could be cool, but I bet Juggle's concern will be people posting inappropriate images. With links, at least they're a little more discreet.

I've suggested this before and was shot down. In the future it could be a possibility.

That is probably what you're looking for.

Oh, I so agree -- definitely no funky colors, fonts, or sizes.

But, I think the images (and +1/-1 and limited self-editing) would be an excellent addition.
