This site is not great to use. #1, orange text. If you reply directly, for some reason the code automatically puts in paragraph tags. Editing your reply and removing them makes the text turn to a normal black... sometimes. And editing the text of a post is particularly bad, with the post body appearing in a very tiny field, which is hard to navigate.

#2 Quoting doesn’t work on a phone. Clicking the quote button doesn’t do anything.

#3 Scaling. I get online mainly on iPhone XR or Firefox on a 2 year old laptop. Both views (desktop and mobile) could be better on both of those type platforms, and have trouble under large dimensions. Even on my previous phone (iPhone 4) stuff wasn’t the best.

I like a desktop computer, but can’t be on one much these days. And to be honest most people, even retroheads, do most of their internet access on a phone these days. This site should be more mobile-friendly. Both forum and front page/ articles and other features, including uploading pictures into forum posts. I think that would help get more users on here. I know it would help me be more active.

As always, I’m willing to help out if I can. Which is probably not much more than ideas and basic HTML 4... but I’m here for that, at the least.

Yeah, the orange text thing has always been a head scratcher to me. And yeah, the quote function would be nice if it worked on a phone. Something to look into.

The women of New Vegas ask me a lot if there's a Mrs. New Vegas. Well, of course there is! You're her. And you're still just as perfect as the day we met.

If we're bringing up suggestions, I only have one: can we change how we embed videos into articles and the forum? It's kind of a pain to do it the way it is now.

Really? It's pretty easy actually. You just copy the embed code from YouTube and click the film reel icon up in the text area, enter the embed code, and you're done.

It can kind of be a pain at times. It's kind of messy to go through the article code and insert the proper embed code for the video you want. Especially if your someone like me who likes to write ahead and insert photos/videos later. I have to scroll through paragraphs of writing to find the right spot. The doesn't even include aligning it properly.

I would rather if it's possible to just do what we have with the insert image feature: just put in the URL link and the video is inserted into whatever spot you currently have the cursor at.

@rick

retrojunk had a youtube button at the convenience of making embedding a piece of cake, i believe i suggested having that feature being on here a few years back, i'm sure it could be done

Rakesh and I have been discussing the changes mentioned here, and some of them will be implemented in the coming days.
