Graphic And Text Formatting Codes

Graphic Codes

If you include certain characters in the bodies or subjects of your messages, they'll be automatically converted to these neat little graphics:

*g* =    *vbg* =    *rofl* =    *mad* =    *sad* =   

*eb* =    *yh* =    *az* =    *jp* =   

*fs* =    *wd* =    *ft* =    *cc* =    *sc* =    *usa* =   

*c* =    *nr* =    *ex* =    *tv* =    *mf* =   

*sd* =    *dice* =    *sf* =   

Formatting Codes

The following codes are available if you need to, or would simply like to format the body of your messages. Just place the appropriate formatting codes before and after the text you want formatted. The codes aren't case sensitive: [b] or [B] will both work.

[b]Bold Text[/b] =Bold Text
[i]Italic Text[/i] =Italic Text
[list][*]Item 1[*]Item 2[/list] =
  • Item 1
  • Item 2
[q]Quoted Text[/q] =Quoted (block-indented) Text
[code]Fixed-Width Text[/code] =
Fixed-Width Text
[center]Centered Text[/center] =

Centered Text

[big]Big Text[/big] =Big Text
[small]Small Text[/small] =Small Text
[red]Red Text[/red] =Red Text
[img][/img] =

For example, the following message:

This is a [red]test[/red] of the [b]Emergency Formatting System[/b]. This is [i]only[/i] a test. If this were real formatting, you'd need to do the following: [list][*]Read the Message[*]Memorize It[*]Destroy It[/list]

Would appear on the forum as:

This is a test of the Emergency Formatting System. This is only a test. If this were real formatting, you'd need to do the following:

  • Read the Message
  • Memorize It
  • Destroy It

Important General Tip

Previewing your message before posting it is always a good idea, but it's even more important if you're using the above codes. If you mis-type something, the message won't look the way you expect it to look!

You should keep in mind that many of the "free" sites on the web that let you store pictures and web pages will not let you link to those images from another domain and the images may not show up. If they don't, you can always use the file upload feature here to show your graphics.
