Miscellaneous

To hide "spoiler" text, enclose it within [spoiler] and [/spoiler] tags.
This is an example of how the [spoiler] ... [/spoiler] tag works.

You can change the text shown on the button by specifying it like this: [spoiler=ButtonText]Spoiler text[/spoiler].
Spoiler text


An opening or closing bracket can be escaped by enclosing itself in brackets, such as [[] or []]. This is handy when you want to discuss one of the above tags, without having your text be parsed as tags.

ASCII characters. This table holds many mathematical and gaming symbols. To insert an ASCII character into your post, precede the 3 or 4 digit number with &#, follow it with a semicolon; no spaces between those 6 or 7 characters. Or, using the specific table above, the characters and code needed can simply be copied and pasted.

On PC/MAC keyboards, holding the ALT key while typing the ASCII code assignment will also insert the desired character.
