Listen to while you read maybe

1) Inside your user settings where you can give yourself a color, or your friends a color, you should also be given the option to give the TC of any given topic a color. So if i'm pink, my friends are light blue, and TC is green, I'll always be able to quickly locate TC's posts. Especially helpful for users who use 50 posts per page. This is also something the website clearly tries to help you with (by putting the (Topic Creator) stamp on the posts below their name), but having a color is a better way to do so

2) Highlight unclosed tags of bold/italics/spoilers/cite/quote/code segments. It shouldn't be too hard to program that in, as there are many code-writing programs which assist you with just that. If it's too hard, a similar version would be to simply change the font, font size, color, or boldness of anything within < > marks in order to help the user easily find them to see which one is messed up.

3) This one is rather unimportant, but I feel like your social media icons at the bottom are rather understated. There's a reason why websites generally opt for the larger squares/circles and choose to not put the url at all. It's quickly and easily communicated.

1) I can get behind this idea a bit, though it'd probably be a pretty low-priority thing.

2) Yeah that can get rather frustrating at times. Would be nice. But again I wouldn't consider it a high priority change either; unless you're using really complicated markup it's pretty easy to spot on rereading, at least to me.

3) To be honest none of the social media has been used in a year or more. The site would be better off ditching them at this point of how dead those accounts are.

Not to be defensive about my post bc it’s mine....

These things actually haven’t been implemented at all to my knowledge. I checked all 3, and none of them were implemented.
