Built in Cut Tag

Built in Cut Tag

Short, concise description of the idea
Posts over a certain line length would have a default cut tag

Full description of the idea
Many communities prefer that long posts be put behing a cut tag, so there's less to wade through on the page. They usualy put this in their faq, but not everyone pays attention. This idea would put a tag after a certain number of lines of text, so that any subsequent lines were hidden.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Easier to read communities
  • Less work for moderators
  • Less having to go back and edit
  • No having to remember to put the cut tag in
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Some people would see it as others editing their posts
  • Some people really dislike the cut tag
  • Possibly hard to make work
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Would it work to make it an on/off feature community moderators chould chose?
  • Tags: community maintenance, lj-specific markup, § historical
    • Post a new comment
