For the future if you want to show someone the proper format for tagging things you can put the bbc between a [nobbc][/nobbc] tag.

Based on my experience, it might have to do with the post being edited between those likes.
I no longer have constant Internet access, so you won't be seeing quite as much of me.

No, I meant text that is visibly present, but not readable unless clicked on (allowing each reader to
see it only if they choose to). See definition 3 here: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/spoiler#Noun

Your giving @Randomex one too many ideas.

Doing that only keeps it from being a clickable link; it's still a mention.

Want to see the latest pictures or videos uploaded to DDF?

Simply search for it's tag and sort by "most recent topics first" like shown below.
For example [/img] for pictures or [/youtube] for (youtube) videos. (Yes, using the end tag is preferable)


(Unfortunately I don't believe the "Show results as messages" is currently working, so make sure to leave it unchecked)

Is there any shortcut to make a list into poll options, instead of copy/pasting each item into a poll option?

Average people talk about things

I good poll shouldn't have to many options, the more options you have the less reliable it's gets IMHO.
That being said, I don't think there's any easy way. It's definitely possible with some code :)

For advanced users

When quoting a post with pictures from postimages, switch the qoute to a thumbnail, by doing as follows:

Copy the first part of the URL (in qoutes):
Code: [Select]
[url=https://postimg.cc/ "PpbP4WCT" ][img]https://i.postimg.cc/LXwLmvRY/20200928-215426.jpg[/img][/url]

And replace the end (in qoutes) with it:
Code: [Select]
[url=https://postimg.cc/PpbP4WCT][img]https://i.postimg.cc/ "PpbP4WCT" /20200928-215426.jpg[/img][/url]

Original URL
Code: [Select]
[url=https://postimg.cc/PpbP4WCT][img]https://i.postimg.cc/LXwLmvRY/20200928-215426.jpg[/img][/url]

This feature has been extremely useful to me, and I try to use it as much as possible. However, I have found that many picture links on this forum are structured differently, and I assumed that those cannot be made to look smaller. However, I just noticed that @Yo ssi managed to minimize such a picture.

Can you explain how it is done?

Sure just add a width or height of about 100

So that would be
Code: [Select]
[img width=100] picture link[/img]
