There was a post here...with a typo.

I tried to edit it and then managed to delete the post. 


Anyway, as to the post, here is a related video with a minor RWBY spoiler.

The true measure of a man is not his attire but whether he keeps his word.

1 You actually compose your posts on the live website?  I had expected that you were doing the bulk of the writing on your local PC, and only doing final edits and formatting on the site itself...

2 I tried to write my posts in Word for a while and then copy/paste and add pics and links but that led to formatting peculiarities as well as youtube videos that didn't work. Instead I try to save as often as possible, but in this case I utterly derped. 
Instead of switching from DRAFT to PUBLISH and hitting SAVE,  when I edited the post it was already published so I switched it from PUBLISH to DELETE and hit SAVE, after which I experienced a period of regret.
I believe the technical term is PEBKAC.

3 Huh.
Paragraph breaks don't exist in comments anymore?

4 Oh... Double-spacing doesn't exist in comments anymore.

If you're using Firefox, hitting "enter" creates a break, which is a single line feed. The entire comment created by Firefox is one paragraph.

If you're using IE, hitting enter closes the paragraph and opens a new one, which is a double line feed.

Getting a single line feed in IE is "shift Enter", which creates a break. Getting a double linefeed in Firefox is just hitting the enter key twice.

6 I'm using Epic, which is a Chrome based browser. It's been pretty good, but the last two updates have made it a tad twitchy with Minx. This paragraph thing is very new.  Thanks for pointing that out. I really need to once again check Opera, Safari, and on my Windows partition Midori and IE for Minx compatibility as upgrades have changed things.

IE compatibility is really pretty poor. If you try to use the "link" gizmo to add a link to your comment, it puts the URL right at the beginning of the comment.

Or at least it does for me when I try to add links to my comments here and at Wonderduck's place. Oddly enough it works fine for me in comments on my own blog.

Anyway, it's been like this for a couple of years. So when I need to write a comment with a link in it, I compose it using FrontPage and copy/paste -- which works.

8 The editor in general has always been a little, shall we say, non-standard.  Pasting over a selection, for example, inserts the pasted text but does not delete the selection. (And for me, it also scrolls the page up to home.)

9 So I tend to watch this on Sundays (I put the RoosterTeeth link in my Weekly Comics bookmark folder.)

After watching the fight against the "wolves" I came to the startling conclusion - all of the girls are Bisect-uals.
