I'm a little curious but is there a particular reason why you guys don't use the regular HTML format for formatting or is it personal preference?

BBCode is easier and gives us greater control, letting us do custom things and whatnot.

i'm still confused about using the image tags to post images. i don't know whether or not to replace the brackets. my images aren't showing up properly. i wanted to use this one in one of the threads:

Untitled

i know there is something wrong with this format, but i need to know what i need to do to correct it.

There's nothing wrong with the code, misswliu81 — what's wrong is that the bare URL doesn't link to an image. http://www.twitpic.com/4gyaiv/image.jpg gave me a 'not found' error.

so it's the website link i provided that is the problem? i'd like the option to upload my drawings from my USB stick or be able to copy and past the image link without the use of codes so it shows up.

but i can fully understand if this is not something you are considering for this site.

y'all may have noticed the strikethroughs not working in recent comments — there was something about them that was causing problems in our articles, apparently, and Ant had to disable that particular method. now if you want to strikethrough something, use the [del] tag instead of the hyphens. for example:

[del]struck through text goes here[/del]

struck through text

quick heads-up guys, Ant recently put through some more behind-the-scenes changes, and he wound up modifying a couple more of the text shortcuts we've been used to for a while. ~subscript~ and ^superscript^ have now gone the way of the -strikeout-.

[sub]this[/sub]

gives you subscript,

[sup]and this[/sup]

gives you superscript.

the asterisks for bold, underscores for italics, and double-equals signs for

big text

still seem to be working, however. :3
i'm going to miss my tildes u_____________u

Well, this explains it.
