What the hell are you talking about?
What is going on
My balls hurt
Oh my boobs
My oh boobs
No not our boobs
How? Did this happen
4 spaces I don't get it
No, like this.
No, not that! This!
No it's like this
Holy shit, thanks Skeletor!
Nya ha ha!
How do I do it?
Edit: nah it didn't work with more formats
Update: HOLY SHIT I'M LEARNING ~~METHS~~ MATHS IN GODDAMN REDDIT
`or just use this`
That's because the 4 spaces is being rendered as a "code block" rather than just monospace. It basically means anything in a line starting with 4 spaces is displayed as text only (no extra formatting) keeping all the whitespace.
You can also use backticks \` to put an `inline code block` or 3 backticks to apply this to multiple lines
for i in range(10):
This is really useful for sharing code or maths because some of reddits markdown symbols overlap with mathematical symbols.
For example trying to do `3*4*5` without a code block is difficult because it either displays the 4 in italics 3*4*5 or you have to manually escape the symbols 3\*4\*5 (using `3\*4\*5`) which is inconvenient
[There's a description of how to use all reddit's markdown features here](https://www.reddit.com/r/reddit.com/comments/6ewgt/reddit_markdown_primer_or_how_do_you_do_all_that/c03nik6?context=3)
That's not real
but thats impossible
I've been tricked
Time to get scamm-
Is it working?
Edit: YES IT IS!
Are you sure about that
I didn't even know what monoscape meant until now
I still don’t know what it means
Gray bar text maybe? I still have no idea
In a monospace font, each character has the same spacing. It's really useful for programming.
That’s interesting, thank you for the information!
But kinda useless for comments🌚 I mean it just looks weird
It's very useful when discussing code, and it can also be useful if you have a specific layout in mind, as all the characters are the same width.
For instance, if you want to share a simple table structure, you can use a monospaced codeblock to ensure the layout of the table:
| Username | Score |
1. | Randall Munroe | 1219 |
2. | Neal Stephenson | 1157 |
13. | Daniel Dennett | 12 |
This is fun
Could you define monospace for me. I am poorly educated on this topic.
```Every character has the same width.```
But they don’t? Every letter is still the same default size for me.
It means the space that each character takes up is identical, for example typing four 'i's is less space that typing four 'w's
in monospace they are all the same distance apart
But it’s not on my device the text functions as default. https://ibb.co/vV8pC6w
The font you see in your phone isn't monospace.
Weird. Something is wrong with your phone or app. It should look like this https://ibb.co/9gVXytZ
Let's see here.
My life is a lie
What does monospace mean
It's family of fonts in which each character takes equal space. For example, programmers use these fonts to write and read code
By using a democratic font we are showing our respect to the characters and their right to have equal spaces.
This is the way.
I love democracy
does this workk in discord also
You can use three ~~tildes~~ backticks for the same effect (in discord). Just Google "discord markdown".
Ex: \`\`\`block monospace text\`\`\` or \`inline monospace \`
These are backticks not tildes (~)
Never knew this was a thing
Now you know
I use comic sans to write code
But why tho? Doesn’t it take up same space anyways?
No. The letter i takes up very little space for example, other letters are close to it
Fixed-width is maybe easier to understand.
In a monospace font iiiii and GGGGG take up the same amount of space.
Monospace fonts make things like programming and coding easier to read, while it'll tire out your eyes to read a novel in that fashion. The opposite is true also. Theres a term for non-fixed-width fonts im sure, but I got no idea what it is tbh.
He speaks the truth
It's so things line up vertically.
Every letter is the same width
Asking the real questions
i can't do it
Maybe your keyboard is set to stereo
Start your sentence after 4 spaces
space space space space did it work?
I dont think so
Goodbye cruel world
Programmers have entered the chat
I was literally laughing like, dude, this is the oldest trick in the book
also, only reddit wants you to use 4 spaces,
for the `win`
But what if it is?
Sounds like a disease.
What did i Just read
I cannot breathe
stay in a live?
Well,you can tell by the way I use my walk
I’m A Woman’s Man, No Time To Talk
Music's loud and women warm
I don't see a change here!
Neither do I
nothing is happening
Are you trolling?
oh maybe not
Indeed it is
Bruh lying won't get you anywhere
It got *me* to the lying championship semi finals in Prague in 2015
0 spaces. Followed by 4?
So that didn't work
I've been living a lie
a metamorphical scheme
Is this some computer shit cause I can't do it
i like money
I like money too
