The lack of a carriage return in the ask box is the biggest problem I have with tumblr. I guess that’s not that bad… But still… *grumbles disdainfully toward staff*
I know right?! Fuckin’ sucks, just let me style my ask text how I want to!
Thing is, I tried editing the compiled HTML - no luck, the tag used for your ask text is a new-fangled <textarea>, and so it handles text internally. Changing the tag or the actual content body does nothing, because apparently the page is running a nasty script that catches all change events and responds by making things back the way they were (removing carriage returns and whatnot, even resetting the view of the remaining characters counter to invisible, never mind that i would greatly appreciate to always know my limits and phrase myself appropriately, not just when i have 1.7 characters left)
This might be quite a bit off-kilter and all, I don’t really work with web technologies, but after looking at that code for a minute, well, here ya go. Now we know, I guess. Yay for ads on penis-pumps that truly scream YOU, I guess
