I know that colors, bold, etc. are all disabled in posts where we post our work so the forum can differentiate between what is work and what is critique.

Is it possible to remove that restriction for the color white in the poetry forum? White font is used to make unnoticeable spaces on TW, and with poetry here, it's more than jarring that what's supposed to be an indentation ends up looking like this: http://www.youngwritersonline.net/sh...2840#post72840.

That's a really good suggestion Carr. I hope Andy can do this!

Huh, I thought underlined white text would make the underlining white as well... ah well, I don't read poetry on this site anyway, so I have no problem with lifting the restriction.

That's a good suggestion. I don't know when Andy would be able to get to it. He's having some serious issues at school right now, but we'll make sure he knows about it!

I'll keep this in mind when I'm doing the literature update.

I want to point out that background color on YWO is F5F5F5, so make sure you include that as well.

I'll probably just make it so that spaces are not removed when you post poetry. There is an easy way to accomplish that. White font shouldn't be necessary.
