oh no

i have some monsterfork features here but i manually copied them instead of switching to monsterfork, which means if there's a change i don't get it unless i actually go and look

there's a bangtag for setting the content type of your toot to plaintext, markdown or html (overriding what you have in settings) that i thought was cool but never used

just now i was looking at the code and went "wait, how does it work? is this some bizzare ruby thing i'm unaware of?"

after some time staring at it i tried using it, just to see

the entire time the feature has been on g.s, it has never worked

let's play "spot the bug". this round is very easy but it took me a while because i didn't believe that there was a bug at first

status.content_type is the type of the toot, which is what we're trying to set. it should be 'text/plain', 'text/markdown' or 'text/html'

content_types is a hash of things like 't' => 'text/plain'

cmd[1] is the first argument to the bangtag, the t in #!format:β€Œt

v = cmd[1].downcase
status.content_type = content_types[c] unless content_types[c].nil?
