nice job with Jengo's Norton thread in condensing it (not removing information) by enabling Click to Expand. If I ever get to the point of creating a thread that informative, I will have to learn how to enable that feature, unless it's right above me in the options as I'm typing? :)

Copy and Paste was only a recent addition to the Windows 11 ecosystem. Some say it's an Apple-grade innovation, others don't agree and call it a mutated virus.

Click to Expand applies to quoted content, many forum software have this by default to hide a lot of scrolling when viewing the page.

And I really didn't think of it until I saw Jengo's thread before it was "cleaned up" by a mod, before and after, compared to the other threads that had the Click to Expand already enabled.
Quoted Boxes are generally used when copy and pasting from external sources. It helps identify what you have written yourself versus what you have not.

Quotes should have been used, but were not. Another problem with Copy and Paste are the rich style formats, where the headline is overly large at the source, or in all caps.

Formatting is the most common reasons for Moderation.

These are easily avoidable should the poster Preview the post, make appropriate changes and then submit.


Unfortunately the Bot cannot at this moment in time.

Good point about previewing our posts, as sometimes when I do copy and paste from another site, I copy and paste it into Word to have Word's formatting resolve the larger text headers, font, or bold text issues then copy and paste that into a post.

Better off using Notepad, which can remove all styling, hyperlinks, images and odd spacing.

Next to the Preview button, there's also a raw edit mode.

Not sure if this is the right thread to ask, but since it happens on this site?

Just now (And a few times in the past as well.) I noticed that my post count drops? Not tremendously, but I am still curious. Yesterday (Or Friday.) my post count was 780, and now it dropped to 778. Now that is not a lot at all, but combined with the past few times I would like to know why. 2 posts is nothing, but last year there were moments where my post count dropped more than 2 all of a sudden. Is that due to maintenance or something, or should that not happen. Meaning … does the MT staff not remove old posts? (As long as they are within MT Forum guidelines that is.)
