Oh, that's weird... just a little bit ago the posts were all touching... and now I look like a bleeding heart! XP ^
I hope it's a good joke because otherwise I'll have got it for nothing...

What's that whole bbc coding thing? I've seen users who put that on character profiles for others, so that you can just hit the "select "all thing. Am I making any sense? I don't think I am xD

This is for everyone who is in awe of Big Brother and other Mods' ability to make the date automatically switch to the viewer's time zone.

The time ought to be somewhere close to by the time I make this post.

Code: Select all

@backroadstraveler. For links within YWS, just copy-paste the URL, no code needed!

I recently discovered that you can use basically any colour in BBCoding. Below are the colours I discovered, some of them well-known, others... not as much. The coding is the same as that which is listed in Lumi's first post, but without the spaces between the colours' names. Oh, and I put them in bold for easier viewing.

Some of the colours are maroon, dark red, crimson, red, orange, gold, yellow, olive, light green, lime, green, dark green, teal, turquoise, cyan, blue, dark blue, navy, purple, magenta, violet, plum, pink, silver, light grey dark grey, grey, white, lavender, light blue, azure, beige, tan, and brown.

But don't stop there! The esteemed @Lareine's colour of preference is dark slate grey, and @TheSilverFox discovered aquamarine and indigo, so experiment to your heart's content!

EDIT: Just remember to use American English in the coding, so "grey" becomes "gray".

If I remember the HTML correctly, then magenta and fuchsia are two different names for the same web colour, despite the actual colours differing. It's well-spotted, though - I'll definitely grant you that. ;)

For YouTube videos you can just do
Code: Select all
[media]url in search bar[/media]
and it works.

How do you make different colors, @AstralHunter? I'm asking you, since in your spoiler had so many different ones. <3

@Liberty500 you just write the name of the color (withoutspaces) in the color code. In the example below just replace "NAME" with the name of the color you want and put your text in the middle. Astral gives all the names of the colors in the spoiler that they used.

Code: Select all
[color=NAME] Text [/color]

[color=darkcyan] TEXT [/color]
but i don't think i can ever love someone
who doesn't understand that teal
is a different color than dark cyan.
