So...um...I can't seem to copy from one thread to another without losing ALL of the prior formatting.  No bullet points, underlining, Bolding, hyperlinks...you name it.  Deleted the stupid stuff jokes.

Seriously though.  This is starting to impinge on my ability to effectively continue my MnP competition, as that's a LOT of text & formatting to carry over each time. 

(edit)

Swapping browsers didn't seem to fix it.

This was indeed disabled; if at any point in the future we wanted to support a dark theme, one big issue with the richtext paste is that it carries over background color (usually white) as well as zany fonts, etc.

In a perfect world, IPS would offer a filter that let us keep certain formatting and discard the rest, while also ensuring proper contrast, but we don't live in that world.

So we have two options: allow the formatting, and know that it will result in a bunch of extra HTML cruft & stylization that is tied to dark-text-on-white-bg, OR, disable the formatting and do plaintext, with the "workaround" being recreating the formatting after the fact within the forum software.

@Liontamer @Gario @DarkeSword This change is definitely affecting at least one use, @HoboKa, and perhaps others - any thoughts on whether we should change back?
