Many of you will already know some of this, but here are a few pointers for simple formatting of messages.

NOTE: when using the features for yourself, replace the words (eg, (asterix) ) with the correspoinding symbol (eg, * )

To make text bold
(asterix)Text(asterix)
Text

To make text italic
(underscore)Text(underscore)
Note: The following symbol is an underscore _
Text

To underline text
(u)Text(/u)
Note: switch the ( ) brackets to [ ] brackets
Text

To add a URL (web address) to a piece of text without pasting the URL itself
(url=http://www.nintendolife.com)Text(/url)
Note: switch the ( ) brackets to [ ] brackets
Text

To add a bullet point to an article
(asterix)(space)Text

  • Text

To add a strikethrough effect
(del)]Text(del)
Note: switch the ( ) brackets to [ ] brackets
Text

To create a line break
(hyphen)(hyphen)(hyphen)
Note: The following symbol is a hyphen -


To add a YouTube video
(youtube:VIDEO ID)
Note: switch the ( ) brackets to [ ] brackets
Note: the video ID is the bold selection from the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J---aiyznGQ
Example: (youtube:J---aiyznGQ) creates the following video

Note: only add YouTube video's where necessary, and avoid using them as spam or posting them in comment sections to Nintendo Life articles. Misuse of this feature could result in bad things happening to people you love.

: (
; )
: ' (
: D
: P
: O (note: capital letter O, not the number)
: *
: $
B - )
0 : - ) (note: the number 0, not the letter)
(further note: for an unexplained reason, sometimes garbage characters may appear in your posts, such as the ones after the angel smiley - just ignore these, since they can't be avoided)

If you have any more suggestions here, post them below.

So glad this exists.

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I also own a PS4!

Where are you getting the url from? I typically get it from a page that has only the image on it; it usually has .gif or .jpeg art the end of it. Make sure you are putting the url outside of the brackets.

Can't embed tweets. Before they work, now they don't.

Making promise is easy. The hard part is keeping it.

@VeeflamesNL You know all of that testing could be done in one post if you used the edit button right?

I did know that... I was just scrolling through the first pages of the thread and trying out new stuff by going straight to the comment box.

Oh well, just clean 'em up when you're done. That's what I do...

Didn't think of that, but the multiple comment thing doesn't hurt anything, does it? But maybe I'll just 'clean up,' like you said.
EDIT: Done.

Anyone know why the tried and true method of embedding YouTube videos hasn't been working lately? In fact, half of the videos posted on this thread in the past no longer work. Like so:

There is an unknown error with youtube videos, I've addressed this with Ant in the past and he couldn't pinpoint the exact issue.

It seems to affect videos at random, you're better off just pasting the URL.

I've been struggling to embed Youtube videos in posts. I've noticed when looking at how others have embedded them that the method hasn't appeared to have changed, but when I go do it, it doesn't work.

I actually found out recently that it tends to work better when I separate the bracketed coded with empty lines, like so:

Blah blah blah blah, like in the video:
(empty line)

[youtube:videoid]

(empty line)
And that sums up my point, blah blah.
