Thank you for this. I spoke with tech. The colors were removed by our core tech team. I will ask that they are re-instated.

Great. One shouldn't live without Carolina blue available.

Tried to check every post in this thread but didn't find anything about my issue...

Isn't anyone having trouble editing wikis?
Whenever I open an existing wikipage, every line is being displayed center-aligned in the wiki editor.
Also it is almost impossible to edit,
when additional formatting has been applied to the text.
If you try to select the text and make it left-alligned, the editor throws in scores of unprovoked [lefts][/lefts] on almost every line. (without the plural s)


Next, when you try to make a single bullet list like this:
  • line 1
  • line 2
the editor saves it this way:
  • line 1
    • line 2

Also, every time when you save the wikipage it looks like another two unrequested new lines are inserted after a

[b(old)]Heading[/b(old)]

or after a bulleted list.

Using Windows 10, Chrome, Edge.

Can you link me to the page? It looks OK for me.

thx ... hope "re-instated" actually means they restore the previous version of the entire color palette rather than just add these three

Looks like we have a wikipost issue.
  1. the preview window will show the text as center-aligned - but if you SAVE, it is left-aligned by default
  2. if you ADD left-align to the wiki, so that the preview shows everything left-aligned, you will LOSE bullets, numbers, etc.
FOR NOW the workaround is to not add left-align, and trust that when you save the wiki it will automatically left align itself.

IBJoel please jira!

(This wiki wasn't formatted in a consistent way, but after trying to fix the current problems is has even become worse.)

When editing in Source mode, on line 1 you'll noitice it is full of [lefts][/lefts] + newlines are not shown.
Look under Europe: many white lines added each time while saving, I removed most of them, but look at Faroe islands, I forgot to remove these.
Also I tried some re-formatting on the first two countries (Albania, Austria). Have to keep removing newlines, [lefts][/lefts] and[lists]/[lists] etc. with every "save".

Then I tried to put some (newly typed by hand) wiki text in a dormant 10 years old thread (that didn't have a wiki yet) and the exact same issues happened.

Hoping FlyerTalk digest hires better writers and (finally) a copy editor.

I asked for all colors back, but gave those as examples.
