post #3991 of 15572
Is there a functionality to do strikethrough text? It seems like it is a feature that vBulleting allows, but it has to be added to the board's BB Code. [strike] tags aren't working for me, nor are [s] tags. This would be rather handy for FS threads, enabling one to mimic retailers and strike out the original price and post the current price, rather than doing hinky shit with other symbols to denote the same.

I don't know about strikethrough, but you could also change the font color to light gray and then have the current price in black or red.

It's funny, because the strike-through is almost invisible in the word "see".

Yeah, I hear you. Like I said, it seems every seller has their own method for denoting this. Some do the color thing, as mentioned. Others use caps, others do this progressively descending

thing, and others just re-edit the price without listing the change. I feel like FS threads start to get really "heavy" and annoying to parse after successive edits, so it would be nice to be able to have a plaintext strikethrough / no strikethrough. It seems trivial to implement, and from an ergonomics perspective, color seems like a last resort. I'm not talking about striking out an item once it has sold (in that case I just scrub the item), but it would be nice to have a side-by-side price comparison:



I've wanted this for awhile, but I never thought to ask about it. Just been making do with far more inelegant solutions.

Disregarded.

It does seem to make the Cucinelli underpants stand out all the more, though.
Free advertising for me.

I never knew that you haunt this subforum, mharwitt. You spend more time here than in my sale threads

Can we get an updated Forum Leaders count? I see some changes in the hierarchy have been made.

They really are, and that's coming from a guy who never thought he'd own something smaller than a rottweiler. Pugs are all personality - I have two, and they couldn't be any different from one another. Sometimes I can't believe they're the same breed.

Why is it that every time people are nice to one another on a forum someone has to make a snide comment? In real life do you jump into conversations about dogs and accuse the participants of kissing ass?

Not the participants, but certainly the dogs.
