To make my longer posts more readable, I try to use paragraphs and spacelines, but they never 'take'.  What's the trick?  Others seem to manage, so there must be a way.  Thanks.

Is the ThongBoard dying? 
I (and many others,) can't seem to compose a decent looking message without our paragraphs being munged together - destroying our formatting.Basic WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) message entry clearly does not work properly.Pictures are being pruned and/or cannot even be submitted any more...
Clearly its way past time to ditch aimoo completely... RIGHT?
The real question is, what service to use that accepts thong photos and what portion of previous posts to copy over.Although its nice to read some history, a lot of posts from more then a few years ago, seem of dubious value - particularly those discussing where to go, 'current' social acceptance etc.
My thanks to jm_runs for all his work over the last 10 plus years, but the house needs serious maintenance to keep it from falling down.
Am I alone here?

 "the house needs serious maintenance to keep it from falling down."  No, you are not alone at all. Add to your list the fact that aimoo doesn't support RSS (which is an issue for me). I agree that JM's done a LOT (and I do mean a LOT) of nice work, but this whole thing needs to be replaced with something that allows for proper formatting and at least some of the basic features of a modern board. That's one reason I spend most of my time nowadays on the other board. This place did used to support paragraphs and all of that? What changed to make everything squish up these days? :/

New paragraph and line spacing works for me, and most other users. There are some tricks for browsers that have an issue with correctly formatting text.  

The first is to end a line with [Shift]+[Enter]  rather than a simple [Enter]. 

This works on most websites, and also allows you to add paragraph formatting in places where, without it, the textile gets smashed together, like replies and comments in Facebook.   

If you create a post in a different software package, and then wish to post the text into this board, make sure you are able to "Paste as Plain Text". This is an option in almost all modern browsers, you just need to know how to use it. 
Formatting conventions from other word processors are often not supported by webpages which don't allow HTML and other formatting codes embedded in your text.
For example in Chrome you can RIGHT+Click the text box and select "Paste as Plain Text" from the drop down menu, or use Ctrl+Sift+V.  

A number of the formatting features that are available are switched off for board management reasons.  
For example, when we have the ability to post direct HTTP or JavaScript switched on, it is instantly abused by spammers. When we have the ability to in different colors switched on people post in stupid fonts, flashing colors, and generally make the whole thing unreadable.

One of the fundamental philosophies behind this board is that you should be up to come to it and read it like a magazine.  In a magazine everything but the titles is generally or in one font. This greatly improves readability. It's bad enough that some people post some really tiresome commentary, but at least it's all in one consistent font so one can read it without once head exploding.

We don't have the ability to post images switched on.  
Mostly because we want people to add intelligent comments and thoughts, rather than posting selfies of their crotch.  One only has to see the sort of pictures that a lot of members post on their personal profiles to realize having images switched on would quickly degrade into nothing more than a gay sausage fest.

The second reason we don't do pictures is that pictures of partial nudity are notoriously difficult to moderate, and almost nobody ends up happy with the decisions, or thinks the process is fair.   

If you think this board is a little difficult for formatting your posts, you should try the rather byzantine and cludgey board management tools.

Thanks JM,

The formatting tips are very helpful. In the past I used a series of fesses , ~ ~ ~, to space out thoughts. Although useful,  paragraphing is much easier to read for print oriented viewers... particularly older ones such myself.

So, a big thanks again for that tip... {Shift} + {Enter}... Cool!

Please cutback on starting new threads and try to post messages as a reply to existing threads.
If you want to cut and paste from your word processor do not do it directly.
First paste it into notepad or other basic ascii editor so that the formatting codes are removed, then cut again. This will give you clean posts.
