Who thinks CB needs it?
December 19 2005 6:46 PM EST
If I knew what it was, perhaps I could give an informed answer.

It's something like HTML, but easier like
[b]Here is Bold[/b]
[img]Post image here[/img]
there are a lot more.
December 19 2005 6:59 PM EST
so, and tell me if I am wrong here please,
[b] is easier than <b>
[i] is easier than <i>
[u] is easier than <u>
Am I missing something here?
The time it took you to learn Lazy Code is the same it would take to learn HTML.

BBCode you don't need
all you do is type [url]www.website.com[/url] for website. there are also colors you can do like [color=red]This is Red[/color]
December 19 2005 7:04 PM EST
_you don't need <br>_ sorry left that out lol
December 19 2005 7:04 PM EST
No, CB does not need this.
You need to learn html, or opt not to use the option.

The post I removed was due to your failure to read, on the page that informs of spelling mistakes there are directions on how to get around the spellcheck. As well as stating not to add spam to a post to get around the check.
the second I start seeing color tags used in form posts I'm turning my vc settings to BW...otherwise I'm afraid it'll start looking like a trading # on Efnet populated by mIRC'ers

Colour is optional :p

Just testing colors
December 19 2005 8:24 PM EST
how do u put colors?

You can do many more things in HTML versus BBCode. There's another forum I'm currently contributing to that only uses BBCode, and the things I'd like to do, I can't. It's just plain annoying.
However, perhaps there could be a compromise where Jon could make an option that a user can select between "Plain text," "HTML," or "BBCode" for the forums. I'm not sure how applicable it would be in these forums, though.
December 19 2005 8:44 PM EST
why does Jon need to make the forum understand yet another form on input, when the current ones work just fine? It is the user that has to adjust.
December 19 2005 8:57 PM EST
It's just a suggestion.

I always get pissed off by BBCode forums, too. So I'm definitely not adding it to mine. :)

Links colors and other things are just as easy added in HTML as in BBCode imo also.
I'm on a forum of friends and it uses BBCode but I keep on putting HTML in it instead :D

So many pretty colours :D
ow that is really really really bad on the eyes :(.
|CB is doing just fine, we have limited HTML abilities, so don't worry about it people :)|

Limited HTML and CSS indeed :)
|HTML does just fine we don't need BB code
