Tables will be added to the SE network shortly.

Feature Preview: Table Support

Can we identify any posts on our Stack that would benefit from actual tables? I remember seeing quasi-tables being used here and there, but I'm not sure if it was on this Stack.

Let's compile a list of posts with quasi-tables that we can edit to feature actual tables, and stick it in an answer here.

I wrote a very basic SEDE query which is open to improvements; but after excluding the false positives, this draft brings up, at least:

On Meta, based on the same query:

Taken from Add support for tables (I've removed the duplicates):

Additionally (AKA "random encounters", fill up the list as you stumble into them!):

    Too bad we can't put these in a table.

  • @SQB meh, while I do get the meta-joke, a bullet list is more appropriate here: once we start editing them, we can edit this post as well with strikethroughs, which will be easier on the eye than a done/Not done table

    It may be worth knowing that "You can't merge cells or rows" on the new tables, which makes the first post on your list (scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/180248/…) a bit awkward to convert. Dec 9, 2020 at 16:31
  • @SQB (and future editors) shouldn't we keep the link even for handled ones?

    @Jenayah yeah, it's a bit of a formatting snafu. In preview, the link shows up formatted, but in the actual post, it does not. I'll file a bug. EtA: there already is one; a space between the <s> and the link (and after it) fixes it.

  • The year in moderation posts from the past should also probably be done.
