[Idea] Enabling URL BBCode within Polls

Postby Freedomanica » Wed May 31, 2023 1:07 am

Hello there.

I’d like to suggest a simple quality of life change in allowing for the traditional BBCode for URL’s to be implemented within the Polls system. I think this will come a long way in making our polls look neater and more presentable as well as allowing for residents to auto-click the relevant links without having to go through the hassle of copying and pasting them.

Proper handling of line breaks wouldn't be amiss either...

Huge huge huge support. No reason we can't at least link dispatchs/on-site stuff, right?

Linebreaks in the poll description would also be welcomed.

I like the idea. The poll code is perhaps best described as "an eldritch being that will strangle [me] with tentacles from Beyond" if I attempt to touch it, but the idea is going on the list.

Absolutely. I run a thread which desperately needs BBCode in the description. When I first created the poll, I was incredibly surprised that I could do nothing to space it out or anything at all to the text.

The poll's here, for the example. It could use:

  1. The ability to make a new line,
  2. The URL feature,
  3. [b]s, [i]s, and [u]s,
  4. And, although not for this poll, perhaps, I think the ability to link nations and regions are also important.

I think the ability to make a new line, though, is the most important.
