Submission form visual text editor no longer the default

Hey everyone,

I wanted to give you all a heads up to let you know that we have turn off the visual text editor (WYSIWYG text editor) by default in the forums' submission forms .

We have just seen too many mangled/malformed posts with the use of the visual editor--especially when our members copy and paste their text into the form from a different source.

If you'd still like to use the visual text editor, no worries, it is still available. Just simply toggle to it by clicking on the magnifying glass icon and you'll be presented with the visual text editor tools.

I'm hoping with this change, we will see less of the malformed posts.

Thanks everyone!
