Could the authorities add support for uploading text files? Turning a text file into a PDF just to upload it is like kicking dead whales down the beach. Sure, I could put it on some paste site somewhere but...eh. Would anyone else be interested in this?

Some text documents are really long--and breaking up long texts across multiple posts is ugly as sin. For example, pasting the .txt copy of 'On the Duty of Civil Disobedience' would far exceed character limits and would be annoyingly long to split into multiple posts.

I don't mean this as a way to make long-form posts without multiple posts; this is a request for attachments.

This has been added, though I haven't made a custom file icon for txt extension yet, it is just using the spoiler icon for now.

You could also use lainfile.pw.

Please note that unless you are actually going to discuss the attachment you attach, you are better of using the file board /f/ for such attachements or dumps etc.

Nice. Thanks! I figured it would be comfier to not have to browse to a different domain or board to download/view a text document, kinda like what's possible with PDFs now.

You're right. Actually a little surprised there is no djvu support here, considering the advantages over pdf / epub. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DjVu
