I don't think anyone is thinking about getting rid of anything. Greenoaks just wants strikethrough moved over with the other "text modifiers" like b/i/u, which I think makes sense. I'm wondering if spoiler should be by quote, code and list since those two are similar. In fact, I kind of think it should be after quote and before code since that is my impression of how frequently each is used.

Yeah I don't think I realized that these two actually existed yet(I obviously don't use them very often lol).

As far as the location I think it's about an inch and a half to move your mouse so I don't think people will be all that bothered. ;)

before the update similar actions were grouped together. now they're not.

its about doing the little things right - attention to detail. things like updating the Rules or Instructions tabs, having the correct image display or the correct wording in all locations.

Please see my last post. If you have a problem with how the icons are ordered then talk to the folks that make the forum software. The way things are grouped now is based on how they order them. This update had no effect on images or the tabs that you mentioned. It had nothing to do with not paying "attention to detail." Can you reserve your passive aggressive criticism for where it's deserved? It's about attention to detail. Things like reading through explanations and posting feedback in the appropriate threads.

feel free to take your own advice when you get off your high horse.

then you might notice the response is to why we bother to point out things that seem trivial to some.

That doesn't seem like it should be the case to me. When quote was added it went right after underline... If it is the case, why would someone add all the of the new things we just added at the end? I think there is more to it... And strikethrough should be moved, IMO.

What I meant was (according to my understanding) the forum software has a set order that it displays the buttons in. The admin can turn on and off various buttons, but they will appear in the order that is decided by the makers of the forum software. Think of it less like "Quote" was added and more like it was turned on. When it was turned on, it went to the location that it was set to by the forum software engineers: between underline and code.

So, it's not that strike was added to the end. It was turned on, and it's set position is after all the other stuff that has been turned on in this forum. Does that make more sense?
