Would it be possible to have some sort of 'formattable' - erm - format on the site so that scripts can be presented in a more scripty way..?

good job i'm so eloquent, otherwise i'd never make it as a writer *ahem*.

I suppose we could try and put something in, but with the length of most of the scripts pasted here, would people really use it that much?

What do others think?

Could be that people would post more ample offerings of it was more friendly on the eye..?

What about links to a small file section (maybe limit it to 2-3 files per registered user. Old files just get deleted). So you upload the word doc and then people download it via a link onto their PC - formatted.

It may be simpler than a formatting tool plus it saves the writer time reformatting a pasted section.

Yes, that would be my preferred method. Much cleaner, easier and quicker. I'll have a look into it. :)
