Tips and Tricks for posting on the forum

I did a search for "text format" in the forum and got nothing. Does anyone have a link to formatting text on the forum that they can post here? Or maybe a list of examples?

Through experimentation, I learned that I can hit the bold format, them change the B's to U's to get an underline. I don't know how to do color, strike through, bullets, or lists.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. And feel free to put keywords in you replies that other players might search.

In addition, I've seen players add colors to their captain names in the game. I looked that one up and tried it, but it didn't work. If that can also be shared here, I would appreciate that as well.

Thanks in advance!

    The strike-through button should be next to the bold and italic buttons. Buttons for lists etc. are next to them.

    In general, they use BBCode for formatting, docs and examples can be found here
  • Thank you @vesmer , that is a very useful link! :)

    No problem :)
  • How does this work in-game? When I try typing bbcode in my captain name, the game asks me to use a maximum of 30 characters.

    I don't know how this works in-game yet, but I felt like creating a post of some of the formats. Probably the easiest way to see it is to quote this post and see how it's formatted.

    Bold
    Italics
    Bold and italics
    Underline
    Strike through

    url (for this thread)
    Quote
    Spoiler

    Red, blue, etc.

    Left
    Center
    Right

    Unordered list:
    • Item 1
    • Item 2

    Hopefully it's a good resource to get folks started.

    @Mirror Sanoa , I could not get your picture for signature settings to upload here. Would you mind re-posting it? I like to have that kind of stuff in one place. :)

    @Roxton , this is some other stuff which you may find useful. (See above.)

    While I'm at it, this is how you send a private message on the forum. It took me over a year to figure it out. Just in case people search the terms direct message or personal message, I'll add those terms as well. Hope this helps. :)

    I almost covered that up too, but decided to leave it as an Easter egg. Now you know. :D

    There's a lot of BBCode that doesn't work in these forums, alas. It'd be cool to create a list of what worked, what didn't, etc. But I'm too lazy. :D


    Could you please continue the petty bickering? I find it most intriguing.

    @Prime Lorca [10FH] , I dug through a bunch of stuff & found a couple of things that might help.

    https://www.mathsisfun.com/numbers/hexadecimal-color-names.html

    Some codes don’t work, though. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Also, @eXo | SilverRose helped me out with this syntax a few months ago, e.g.:

    <color=#9370DB>text</color>

    I can only get one color into a squadron name, due to the character limit. The Message of the Day is longer & thus easier to fit multiple colors into.

    I hope that I helped someone. 🖖

    How to tag someone with a space in their forum name: use the arroba (at symbol) followed by a quotation mark, then start typing the name.

    Example: <arroba>"(A) Traveling Man" will show up as @(A) Traveling Man

    Tagging @~peregrine~ since he mentioned this in another thread.

    Go into your profile.
