    Suggestion for improvement of JFC: can all links be made bold, underlined and blue? kinda like in my sig? If not that format, something else?
    Basically anything to distinguish it from regular text.

    Right now, you can't tell if something is clickable, unless u change the format of the text manually. It'd be nice if links were automatically underlined or something so people know it's clickble.

    not tryin to be demandin, or make mods mod i.e. read posts, etc. pls dont frac, just tryin to improve the JFC. -Love HH


    Example: This text is a link, but you wouldn't know it just by looking at it. This text is the pits.
    Example 2: Now this text-- this text is awesome, cuz it stands out, boldly declaring it's click-ability. #LinkProud

    Not a bad idea, but I think you should outsource these ideas if you want them to be taken seriously

    Nah.. too messy and would mess with readability which has been one of the core pillars of the JazzFanz forum for years and years.


    Usually you can tell it's a link anyway as it'll start with "www".

    Not really a fan. Def not a fan of it being blue if it were to happen.

    Kinda obvious when something is a link tbh

    I agree. Except if it were to be a color blue is the obvious choice.

    well it doesn't have to stand out as much as i made it stand out in the OP. it could be something as simple as just italicized or underlined.

    Scratch that, I'm not smart but dumb. Whenever I post a link I use [ur|][/ur|] tags. I never know you could just paste a link in and it's autolink for you.

    I think automatic underlining of links might be a good idea.

    edit: I don't know if there's an easy way to do this in the board software, though
