Forum and in-game text formatting

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 and italics
    Strike through

    Red, blue, etc.

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