Visual Mode on the Editor

We're looking at making more changes around here (as always). I was wondering what you guys would think about me getting rid of the WYSIWYG editor. Right now when you put something in bold it appears bold as you're typing it and links appear as links. If you're familiar with other boards you've probably seen ones with BBcode. Does anyone have any preference of WYSIWYG vs. BBcode?

I ask because this editor is kind of ... unstable and taking it out of the equation might result in a better user experience. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.

If the board would be better without it, I would say get rid of it. Why keep something that is unstable!

I don't have a lot of experience with this sort of thing, but if other boards do it with BBCode I would probably be fine with it. I haven't had any problems here, but I haven't had any problems on other boards either.

Well we can't follow that rule all the time or we'd have to get rid of the admin and myself as well! Unstable things have their place! laugh

That's hilarious! To be sure, we'd have an empty board!
