  • Outright HTML code on forums is a horrible idea… say byby to your security, and hello malware.

    Now, although it is true this site does not have all BBCODE enabled, the need for such needs to be considered individually. Indeed, when this website gets a new forum in September supposedly, we shall see what it can do. Until such time, I would suggest you wait, it is so...

    I don't think why you get I put the HTML here; It was so it would be easier for the web admin to add these new BBcodes. I did not intent for it to cause problems (and it won't), I just put it there for convenience.

    I'll take your advice and wait for september.



  • I prefer uniform colors in all posts, it's easier on the eyes.



  • I think the notes one can already be done, just in a hacky way like so:

    Randomized text color doesn't seem very useful to me, and in most scenarios would make the text more difficult to read. It could pick nothing but gray-ish colors or light pastels. We already have colored text options. And for the background color I'd rather have the site's style layout handle that as random boxes of colors don't look very good, at all.

    (just an example from many years past on another forum)
