Earlier this week a community member asked why we didn't have a visual editor option. Its 2013, we really should have one. So I dropped what I was doing and installed one.
If you prefer slinging your own BBcode you can still work like you used to: simply click the last icon (looks like a white sheet of paper) and the buttons will display the code.
The new editor lets you view images and youtube videos right in the article as you post them, so you have more accurate idea of what your story is going to look like when you're done posting. It also has a Full Screen mode option that hides everything on the page, which is lovely. The thing to get used to is having to hit the Image and Youtube buttons when inserting assets.
So, I show this update to Hamza and his reaction was: "People are going to rip off their dicks!!". I love working with this guy. Photos and videos unrelated, just testing to make sure they work. There's also a new hideous libraries of smileys that I'm trying to figure out how to disable.
