Is there a thread that shows the layout of all of the code for posting? Such as how to make it [b]bold[/b], [i]italic[/i], or to post images, or whatever. I thought I saw one, but I can't find it again, for some reason.

I'm pretty sure we use BBC codes, but the community forums have the nifty quick links on the upper right hand corner of the text box, whereas the RP forums do not. The only thing I've seen for the RP forums is the 'Autocode' link, and that doesn't work. At least, it hasn't worked for me, no matter how much I try it.

I think if there was a thread that outlined it all, it'd be a good source for members new to RP and the site.

Also, I know there are some pretty bizarre codes, and I'm not sure if we support them all, so it'd be nice to know which ones we support and everything as well.

That's a really nifty idea.

I usually end up having to go to the Community Forums, find a post that has the thing I want to replicate, reply to that message so the code comes up and I can learn it, lol.

We could always just start it here but it'd be better if a mod could do it and make it sticky/pin it or whatever it's called.

Unlike the Community forums, the RP forums still run on plain old HTML :) You can use the BBCode too, though I prefer HTML just because I know it better.

After all, you can do all sorts of fun shit with it.

You're such a show off.
And a bratty one too ;)

Hey, now, I earned those "skillz0rz" (as all the l33t kids these days call them) through blood, sweat, and tears over many years on the old forums! :P

'Course, if you're senile like me, you can also find a cheat sheet over yonder: linkage!
