We in the staff (or rather Jinghao) have decided to allow double posting in threads that seem to address multiple topics. It's very easy for one topic to divide into many others, and as a moderator, it's difficult to split a topic which addresses multiple points. If each topic is kept in separate posts, that would make it a lot easier to split, and keep on topic.

So, if responding to a thread that has diverged to more than one topic, make two posts which address each topic separately. Please don't abuse this though, only use it when appropriate.

Jinghao gave a good reason why I would benefit the most from this, hopefully I'll pass you within the next couple years.

This does make it easier to split topics, but we better see some serious splitting from our mods then.

I don't like this, but I'm all for this place getting laid back again ^_^

We could just use Spoiler tags to make longer posts easier to read. ie:


My repsonse to Issue xxxxxxx
[ spoiler ]blah blach blach[ /spoiler ]


My response to the second Issue
[ spoiler ]blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah[ /spoiler ]

Anyone agree?


(For an example of how spoiler tags work, see http://www.thecenternetwork.com/forum )

That's a decent idea, Garlic, but we may as well just divide our posts using two different headings or something of the like; the use of the spoiler tag itself seems a bit extraneous. I'm not sure whether I like this. Could we not leave it up to people to create a new topic when a separate issue comes up before replying to it at all?

Or we can use the [ header ] tag:

This is only used once


Or alternatively we can use the [ title ] tag, as follows:

This is the title of the section


Or the subtitle tag, as follows:

This begins a subtitle

Indeed - I think it just takes good use of tags. The spoiler tag is great as it means people who have read the topic already can quickly scroll past huge posts. The scroll tag is an okay substitute, but you'll often find yourself caught scrolling through that box.

I'm just saying - multiple posts seem lazy and, in actuality, take up more room with the avatars and signatures than a simple spoiler/header tag combination would.

That's why I have signatures off swink.gif

The spoiler tags on origin are actually kind of hacked. You need to say [ spoiler=giveAnUniqueIDHere ], not just [spoiler ]

It's slightly complicated to do a real-time rendering of the spoiler tag so I just added it as a custom tag. I figured not many people use it, so...
