Suggestion: Rich Formatting Text !!
Yes, many forums are adapting new technologies like a Rich Text Formatting using by example ASP.

This way, you can create a discussion, poll... and while you're writing, you're previewing the post you're making.

No more
 [b] [url] [i] 
... just, select the text, push the bold button, and wala!! You have now that text in bold style, or while you're writing a url, is converted automatically into a link., the same with paragraphs, lists...

Dunno if is really complex to do or not, only it's a idea Cool

Waiting any answer to this.

Regards from Spain!

Hi Ruben -- We've submitted similiar formatting requests to the message board software vendor (e.g., spell check, post preview, etc.). Currently, to bolden text wihinin a post you must copy and paste it into the text box when the "B" button above is selected. This can be a little time consuming with the lengthier discussions, but it is a good suggestion to simply select the button and then the written text will be formatted accordingly (same with url's and italics).

Good idea...we'll submit that request asap. Cool

Keep them coming!
