Question about game seeking
« on: September 24, 2014, 03:37:51 PM »
Is it permissable to advertise for an offsite group game? If so, where would such an advertisement go?

I would imagine you would advertise in the Non Forum RP Requests forum?

But I would wait for someone more knowledgeable than I to confirm this.

That was my first idea, but I didn't do it on the off chance it might get taken down.

Also, most sites will usually have some kind of guide for BBCode/HTML/formatting in whichever language it uses.  It's a handy bookmark to keep around, at least until you know it by muscle memory :)

Indeed. I had to look it up. It has been years since I used HTML.

Strangely, the hyperlink tag is the only one that is significantly different. Pretty much everything else uses the exact same keyword but with < > instead of [ ]. Some of the more complex parameters differ, but that is usually down to how the BBCode has been implemented.

The nice thing about BBCode as opposed to html, is that the BBCode interpreter simply ignores anything it doesn't like, where the html one still tries to parse it and generates an error. This means that in BBCode you can do things like [] and they show up, where in HTML if you want to show <> you have to type &LT&GT

I knew how to do it already, so I did it. Funny, with the other site, they have no url button. That is one of the plusses of this site. I still like how groups are organized over there better, so that's why I'm not doing it here.
