Hello! I'm going to give you a quick show-off of all the great formatting features, with explanations on how to use them!

The Basics

Everyone who has ever used any kind of word processing program knows about bolding, italics, and underlining. Some online forum users or more advanced WP program users might also know about striking!

How to use these simple, yet so amazing features?
Like the features themselves, it indeed is, very simple. Just do the following:

Depending on your effect of choice, choose the letter bold, italics, underline or strike, and type it inside square brackets, like this: [b­]

Next, type something, like: [­b]What a great guide there, Bror!

And then to finish the whole thing off, after the text, type in: [/­b]

Result should look like this: What a great guide there, Bror!


You can also use multiple effects at once, just do the same as earlier, but type them like this [b­][­i][s­][u­]TEXT HERE[/b­][/i­][/s­][/u­] and so on...


Media and Colors

So, how do I link cool websites like MMRPG? Simple, like this: MMRPG

First off, type some more square brackets, like this: [insert your message here]
You don't have to put in a message, but if you want to have some fun or look really cool you should definitely do it.

After typing in the coolest message of human history, paste in your link of choice, of course you don't want to link anything harmful or shocking since other people have feelings as well. If you enjoy mischief, you hopefully also enjoy getting banned.

[Click Here to Play MMRPG!]­(­http://megamanpoweredup.net/rpg2k11/)

Click Here to Play MMRPG!

That's enough about linking. Next up we have images!



Images are really great, picture tells more than a thousand words they say, and this goes for making bug reports as well! When calling the exterminator (or in the case, sending bug reports to the programmer), remember to send them some definitive proof of those pesky bugs existing!

Just like earlier, square brackets is the way to go: [image]

You can change "image" to anything you want and it will appear as a mouse-over tooltip for the image. It's a great way to add a description or name to an image.

Next, upload a pic or find an existing one from wherever, remember to keep it safe though. No one wants to see anything unpleasant or shocking. So we were making a bug report, right? Well let's put the image link inside parentheses.

[imag­e] (h­ttp://puu.sh/6lNAs.png)




That's all for images. At this point, I'd probably like to preview my post (wink wink) before sending it, just to see that everything is like it's supposed to be.



Well then, let's move on to the coloring part.

To make things more colorful, you need 2 things.

Square brackets, and a type.

This time, inside those square brackets, you'll type in the message, just like when linking stuff.

[It's great to know how colors work!]

Well, that guy doesn't really know how to use colors yet apparently. Let's try adding in some curly braces and types.

[It's great to know how colors work!] {explode­}

It's great to know how colors work!


But how to create dual-type text? Simple, inside the same braces, add an underscore = _ and then add another flavor of your choice. Like this:

[It's great to know how colors work!] {expl­ode­_freeze}

It's great to know how colors work!

The list of types is the same as the list of Player Colors, found from the "Edit Profile" menu.




Yay! Now you have mastered the basics of formatting, there are some features that I don't know of because they aren't listed here... But I'll add more in as soon as I know.

Comment guidelines are pretty easy to follow - stay on topic, don't be rude, don't double-post when you can easily edit, and don't create 100 topics in a row just because it's fun. Oh, and no adult stuff or bad language. Ever. This is a kids' game, people! ;)

Super-duper excellent work, Brorman! I cleared up a misconception about the image tag's title text and added a brief comment guideline at the bottom. I also colour-coded this like the rest of the threads here and stickied it. Thank you soooooo much! :D

What a great guide there, Bror! Thank you so much for adding this! I don't really know any of this, and this helps more than the tiny guide under the comments box (no offense to whoever made it).

Might I inquire about how much swearing is too much? I can easily filter myself if need be, but in most forums I frequent, the general audience is at least to the age where they've heard every word in the book. One of them even said their policy was "Talk like a gentleman, swear like a sailor." Like said before, I can tighten the chain if need be, but I need to know what's acceptable. Most people have the policy of "Keep it down to a 'dammit' and 'hell' every now and again," but I figured I'd ask.

Do we have to upload the picture to another site before adding it here? If not, then how? I don't really understand the picture part...

@CHAOS_FANTAZY : I'd say you should try to avoid swearing completely. I'm personally okay with "hell" and "damn" but I have a biased adult perspective and I've had people complain/mention those words before when they were part of the story (Wily said "damn"). There amount of younger players is unsurprisingly high, so I think we should play it safe else alienate our biggest audience.

@QuickLikeQuickman : @MegabossMan : Yes, there are no file uploads on the website yet and you have to upload them to another service fix (like Photobucket or the like). With all the memory issues with the game itself I do not want to risk adding image-uploads to the mix and crashing the server over something as trivial as JPGs. At least... not yet. Let's see how this new server goes first.

Lots of new formatting options have been added to the community! Use [ code ] tags if you ever need to explain code to other users. Like this here:

New Community Formatting Options!
New Community Formatting Options!
New Community Formatting Options!
There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

It is with great pleasure that I announce a whole slew of new formatting options added to the Mega Man RPG community including some super-fun stuff with robot and ability sprites. Let's get started, shall we?

@megaspeed : Each of the different Mega/Proto/Bass colours are unlocked when you find your first core in battle. For example, once you've found your first Flame Core you can change your Mega, Proto, or Bass avatar into a red Flame Core one. :) If you have any other questions not-related to formatting, please post them in the general Q&A thread. Thanks!

gemini-man ...I must say that the new formatting features look great. I think I'll take advantage of these whenever I post on here now. The profile is kind of tricky to edit, though...no word wrapping there unlike in these posts. ring-ring
