./ Tagging

To put it bluntly, ./'s tagging sucks. It alows anyone to tag anything with any name/title/etc they want. Now, people's political views or whatever can influence an article with just a click of the mouse. It is a bad idea in its current state.

There should be a predefined list of tags that the submitter can select from. The casual ./ reader should not have the ability to change a tag.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
