    Uhn... It's a simple NUF Feature Request, I just want the button that allows you to change the font of the text get removed from the Rich Text Editor... I don't mean disabling the [FONT][/FONT] command, since that would bug older posts out, but plain and simply removing it from the menu of the Rich Text Editor.

    The reason why I'm asking this is because people often bug out their posts heavily and have no idea why... Well, I know why, it's because they changed the font of their posts.

    Take a look at those posts for example:

    https://forum.novelupdates.com/threads/game-of-idleness-kingdom-royale-game-22.33573/
    https://forum.novelupdates.com/posts/4810415/

    The BB Code gets seriously messed up whenever a Font change happens, and there is no way for the user to know that aside from when they make a post and suddenly it's all mega bugged out.

    I dunno if there is any way to fix the bugs involved with Font changing, but I guess it's not worth the effort? So I'm asking to simply having the button removed, this would avoid having people bugging out their posts by accident again in the future.

    ... And if someone is willing to deal with the bugs, then they could just write out the BB Code for the Font Change manually instead.

    I see nothing wrong with the examples, am I blind?

    You're probably just looking at the wrong thingies.

    Try looking at the numbered list at the Gameplay Overview section of the 1st one. It's pretty messed up by itself, and aside from looking ugly, it can also get troubling when you try referencing previous points, but said points are at the wrong number because the list is behaving strangely.

    For the 2nd link, the "Instructions" spoiler is duplicated and split the information within it in 2 spoilers instead of a single one. The spacing between player names is also doubled.


    ... And well, that's on the visible spectrum of things, if you bother with looking at the code, you'll see this kind of monstrosity there:
    Code:
    [LIST]
    [FONT=Courier New]
    [LIST][*][USER=105649]@Ripple[/USER][/LIST][/FONT]
    [/LIST]
    [FONT=Courier New] [/FONT]
    [LIST]
    [FONT=Courier New]
    [LIST][*][USER=16582]@Blitz[/USER][/LIST][/FONT]
    [/LIST]
    [FONT=Courier New] [/FONT]
    [LIST]
    [FONT=Courier New]

    [FONT=Courier New] [/FONT]

    [FONT=Courier New]

    [FONT=Courier New] [/FONT]

    [FONT=Courier New]

    [LIST]
    [FONT=Courier New]
    [LIST][*][USER=18372]@Ddraig[/USER][/LIST][/FONT]
    [/LIST][/INDENT]
    
    Instead of what it should look like, which is this:
    Code:
    [FONT=Courier New][LIST]
    [*][USER=105649]@Ripple[/USER]
    [*][USER=16582]@Blitz[/USER]
    [*][USER=26302]@Fossil[/USER]
    [*][USER=19830]@Evil_Ginger[/USER]
    [*][USER=47692]@SquadCammander354[/USER] - Next
    [*][USER=132476]@Arexio[/USER]
    [*][USER=147951]@Nyan sempai[/USER]
    [*][USER=123528]@Cypress[/USER]
    [*][USER=18372]@Ddraig[/USER]
    [/LIST][/FONT]
    
    So well... I'd like to avoid having other people deal with those code monstrosities if I can help it, so it would be neat if the Font button was just removed~

    PS: Game 22's OP was actually much much much worse than that, I just fixed most of its problems some years back when I noticed this huge mess.
