Rip off your dicks: There's a new Community Blogs editing tool

   0


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.

- It takes a lot to make a stew

About Papa Nieroone of us since 9:58 PM on 03.16.2006

I've been writing about video games on Destructoid for almost 12 years. It would be insane to stop now. I do a lot of stuff behind the scenes here, but mostly my job is to keep Destructoid weird.

Also I'm a playable character in Retro City Rampage:


(along with the whole 2009 Dtoid Editorial team)

Sometimes I have a villainous mustache



My dog CoCo checks all my work for bugs:



I've been to Japan a dozen times. Tokyo's my favorite place, ever. Good food, good people.



Sometimes I do volunteer stuff between gigs:



My advice to people who want to work in videogames is to just start doing the work, even if you do it incredibly poorly at first, until it just happens.

You want to be a writer?

Write daily. Eventually, you become a writer. Don't overthink it, that's all there is to it.

Live your dream! You only have one ticket, you may as well go for it.

Until then, here's a photo of me doing the nightly site backups of the community blogs:
