We’re adding a heads-up note to the posting process on the front page when previewing a long-above-the-fold post, to help provide folks with preemptive feedback about post length. It’s not enforced—your post won’t be truncated by the posting process or anything like that—but we’re hoping it’ll help folks think about how they’re framing stuff in terms of how much vertical space it might occupy.

Pony request: blockquote button on the text entry box next to "B" "I" and "link". [more inside]
Can we mobile users have more HTML composition buttons? [more inside]
Could how Metafilter renders BLOCKQUOTE and list tags be fixed/tweaked? [more inside]
I would like a small formatting pony. [more inside]
Slightly better CSS: Could the CSS for useful elements like blockquote be improved so that quoted text from previous posts does not have to be faked with ? A now-common style of changed font, larger left indent, and line down the left side might work.
I finally fixed a couple long-standing bugs. One, when you used <blockquote> in a comment, the preview page would look screwy, but upon submission, it would appear fine. That is fixed. The second, as mentioned by nicwolff below, had to do with the preview not being an exact preview of the comment after submission. That has been fixed, and the special code clean up that is done on submission is done on preview.
when I use blockquote, it screws up the formatting for the rest of the page (margin way-left). what should I be using instead?
There should be an easier way to quote someone else's post/comment. I've tried using
, but it doesn't always work as well as it should. (On another note, what should go in the URL in this case? I really don't have anything to link to).
