    I've seen this on some other forums and and curious as to why iPTF does not have this. All it is a line through the text using the bracket commands sorta like: [crossed]This text would be crossed out[/crossed]. Some people can use it to cross out old information instead of completely deleting it (for example: people who still have a old version of a program can still see the old info but the information is marked as outdated).

    There's many things IPTF doesn't have that other forums do. I personally want better smileys.

    It's all up to Bgizzle. He has his reasons.

    Strike through would be useful but probably only used for comedy effect... why strike through when you can edit and delete...?

    Let say someone has a tutorial on an application (i'll use Zodttd's gba emulator). In earlier versions you had to put the bios and games in a certain place. Well lets say he update the app and changes the location. With strike through it will indicate that the text is old information but is still readable and useful to people who have not updated the app and still are putting their games in the old location.

    I agree with Led. It's useful for correcting a post, while still showing others that you made an error.

    I think that strikethrough would be an asset as well. Like what Led said, on how you can edit your post, so others can see what you did wrong.
