Creating this topic to share any random bits of knowledge gained from around the web. Say What's on Your Mind doesn't quite work for this purpose.

Here are some codes you can copy and paste, just to make things easier.

Code: [Select]
1. [youtube][/youtube]
2. [spoiler][/spoiler]
3. Work in progress (tell me what other codes would be useful).

EDIT: I literally just realised, for the first time ever, that this site automatically adds these codes for you if you choose their option.

    Wait, you just realized that? What did you think those buttons were for? And don't tell me you didn't know you could also do that in Zetaboards too...

    (Though to be fair, I'm guessing maybe you didn't realize initially because your former main way of internet browsing was a Blackberry?)

    Your guess is correct. On top of that, I used Opera Mini, so I literally thought you had to type all the codes in manually.

    That's a lot like the rank size rule in human geography...

    I've discovered a few things you can do with the bb code that the site doesn't tell you:
    Code: [Select]
    [color=#ff00ff][/color] - you can use hexadecimal to make text any color, although that is probably well known.

    [quote author=Laurentus][/quote] - you can quote someone without using the quote button and it will notify them, but normal quoting is probably better
    Well, I thought there was more when I started writing this, but that's about all I noticed, and these are little things. I guess I might as well post this anyway
    Wait, so can you make pretty much invisible text if you plug in the background's colour? Now that's really neat.

    You can also enter in some unstated colors, like goldenrod or darkred, and it'll work.

    I've used both (other colors and hex codes) in things like my Underhusen campaigns.

    This one should be more accurate/invisible. (screenshot + color picker can do wonders)

    Turquoise
    Aquamarine
    Gold
    Silver
    Crimson
    Blue-Violet
    Bright Navy Blue
    Brilliant Rose
    Bubble Gum
    Electric Orange

    The color codes seem to be more reliable than the names.

    Here's a Wiki for all the color codes and names.  So far, all of the codes (even the more outrageous color names) have worked.
