Strikethrough text

Post by hotdogPi » March 3rd, 2021, 7:21 pm

I'm most active on another forum, where [s]this[/s] creates strikethrough text, useful for modifying a post if something turns out not to be true but would break the flow of conversation if deleted entirely. There appears to be no way to do it on this forum. Is there a way to add the feature?

I believe that would be a custom BBCode addition, similar to what has already been added occasionally for "wiki", "catagolue", and "viewer". Only an admin (Nathaniel) can do that, not a mere moderator.

Dear David Raucci,
You can copy and paste these:

Code: Select all

̶!̶"̶#̶$̶%̶&̶'̶(̶)̶*̶+̶,̶-̶.̶/̶0̶1̶2̶3̶4̶5̶6̶7̶8̶9̶:̶;̶<̶=̶>̶?̶@̶A̶B̶C̶D̶E̶F̶G̶H̶I̶J̶K̶L̶M̶N̶O̶P̶Q̶R̶S̶T̶U̶V̶W̶X̶Y̶Z̶[̶\̶]̶^̶_̶`̶a̶b̶c̶d̶e̶f̶g̶h̶i̶j̶k̶l̶m̶n̶o̶p̶q̶r̶s̶t̶u̶v̶w̶x̶y̶z̶{̶|̶}̶~̶·̶…̶,̶;̶№̶
The stroke character has UTF-8 ID 822 (decimal).
You can also use <s>this</s> on LifeWiki.
Have a good day!

C̶o̶l̶o̶r̶f̶u̶l̶G̶a̶b̶r̶i̶e̶l̶s̶p̶1̶3̶8̶

x = 21, y = 21, rule = LifeColorful

I have reduced the glider cost of quadratic growth to eight and probably to seven. Looking for conduits...
