I just wanted to add something to this:
When formatting your posts using the preview editor, you may encounter issues with line spacing between paragraphs. This is most commonly seen when copy/pasting a large amount of formatted text in from a word processor. The editor cannot reflect the formatting properly until some event allows it to process what you have pasted in, and so while the post looks pristine when you finally hit post, afterwards.... eh. Not so much.
To get around this, after pasting in your text, toggle the editor window first to the BBCode view, and then back to Preview view by using the buttons at the bottom left:
This will force the editor to parse your text, and display the true formatting. The mystery lines will be forced to appear now rather than later. Now you can edit in one fell swoop without needing to re-edit to take all those pesky tabs or mysteriously appearing extra lines out!
BB Code is required to alter the appearance of signatures as well, and must be manually typed into your signature field.

FoxxGlove: Ack....hate it when I've checked and double checked and even triple checked to make sure all is good, only to find out I submitted an entry that has errors. ACK......

Alatariel: Always! No matter how many time I read through mine, there will always be something someone picks up on that I missed

pelwrath: I have learned to accept that I’ll have errors, it’s a given. Only do my best to minimize the number of errors.

Mazulla: Same here! Why is it we only notice these things once they're submitted?!

Alatariel: Honestly if it's something small I won't take off points because we're all human.

FoxxGlove: Going to adopt the same policy, Alatariel. Such wise words.

pelwrath: It's been a few weeks but I had an idea for a 100-word story, and posted.

Mazulla: Your 100 word entry is great, Pelwrath. I don't have any ideas nailed down yet. I seem to always think on it a few days and sometimes don't post til the last day.

pelwrath: Mazulla, thank you for your kind words. In truth, I didn’t think I’d have a story for ‘crisp’, that I’d like. While cleaning the windows and screens for winter, the idea came to me. The day was a very cloudy one but for a few minutes the sun did shine.

Mazulla: When you're trying to put together some critiques, but your 80-90lb dog keeps throwing himself in your lap... And keeps looking at me and smiling. You can see this goof here: i.imgur.com/8UvQpbD.jpg?1
