[request] Change "attachment=x" to "att=x"

"attachment" is kinda a lot to type.... Is it possible (or simple) to use something shorter (in addition to) the current "code word" ??

*Neutral*...the only downside I see is for new members who have no idea what "att=x" means. Yes, there are the FAQ's.

The fact that "attachment=x" isn't explained anywhere either (other than a FAQ, I'm guessing) kinda makes your "downside" a moot point...

As a new member, if I see the word "attachment", it has more meaning than "att". At least I would know what FAQ to look for.

And hence, why I said to use 'att' "in addition to" the full spelling of the word.

There is a difference between laziness and efficiency.

.. and with the space saving of not storing the additional letters I could do something really cool! Like write an extra news article every 10 years.

Guess I'll go find an faq to find out how the heck you use attachment=x and att=x to begin with.

Bottom line is that it's a place holder within your posting that specifies where the attachment should appear. Normally, without specification, your attached graphic or file would appear at the top of your post, with all text beneath it... but if the attachment=x code is placed, the attachment may be in the middle of your text or at the bottom, or just about anywhere you'd like it to appear.

Do you drive a car places or walk ?? Do you use a computer to write a paper or a typewriter ?? When you're cold, do you chop wood and build a fire or do you turn the dial on the thermostat ?? I can go on if you wish...

As nil said, it's called "efficiency". Hell, I'll add to the efficiency with a second, related request. When I hit the "Attach File Toggle" button, instead of re-building the screen and adding the fields, make the "Add file" or whatever it's called pop-up to allow you to choose the 1st "att". I'll bet the vast majority of attachments are single ones and not multiple.

Now you can fit in that "earth is not flat" article you've been working on for so long.
