You can do that with CSS? :huh

Right now there's this.

That would work, althought I meant it as an automated thing for well known acronyms.

But what about acronyms that can stand for more than one thing?

To put my two cents in, if that was an automated thing in posts it would annoy me.

Yeah, I'd comment about this, but there's some OoC stuff being said in an OoC thread. Besides, this seems like it's GTG, and I've GTG anyway.  :rolleyes

Zero thought it would be funny one april fool's to have the boards do word replacement. Every instance of the word "Green" was replaced by "GLEEMAX!GLEEMAX!GLEEMAX!". Unfortunately, it broke a LOT of posts because it didn't revert back to the original text once turned off again, because he was an idiot.

Hey, I wasn't sure where to report a bug with the board, and it seems silly to make a new thread about it, so I'll call my "bug report" a "suggestion" and pretend it fits here:

When using a glow tag, if you click the "remove formatting" button it removes the /closing tag, but not the opening tag.

That is:
Code: [Select]
[glow=red,2,300]Glow[/glow]becomes
Code: [Select]
[glow=red,2,300]Glow

A subfolder in the Min/Max area for a person's 'idea' threads?

I'm assuming you mean stuff that's not homebrew? What are you thinking? Musing and opinions about optimizing, or what?

Perhaps a better question to ask is: are there any threads in Min/Max that you think would better fit in the subforum you are suggesting?

I think he means people's build/signature threads.

yeah there's several people that have a thread based on all of their own homebrew, characters from PbP games, and ideas for upcoming characters.

i'd do it if there was a separate subfolder for this. others might too.

It's not really useful for navigation though since the subforum doesn't have a defined role for reading or looking for content, just a generalized "Stuff Goes Here" bin isn't particularly useful to create, and makes things harder to monitor. Aggregation threads can go under the forum their content most closely match, or off-topic for anything that doesn't have a primary category.

It's a god-eat-god world.

Procrastination is the thief of time; Year after year it steals, till all are fled,
And to the mercies of a moment leaves; The vast concerns of an eternal scene.

Indeed, if you want a signature thread, you can post it basically anywhere and then just link it in your sig. There's no need for a whole subforum just for something whose main purpose if to be linked somewhere else.

Mine is in Homebrew and Houserules, but that's because it's a collection of homebrew and house rules. :p

The point is to have an intuitive place to keep them, rather than having them scattered all over the boards.  Easy for newcomers to add to, and easy to find your crap again if you lose the link for some reason, rather than trying to remember where you put it.

EDIT: And, easy for other people to browse if they're interested.
This a thousand times.

Okay, two things here (third doesn't count), both are likely to be shot down by others, but I like the ideas:

One)
What:  A Private board. That is to say, a board where any thread you start can only be read by you.
The Purpose: A place to put character sheets and monsters you don't want everyone else to see. Or anything else you don't want others to see.
The Reason: I think this would go quite well with how many people here are PbP DM's / players.
My True (personal) Reasoning: There are times I want to keep the Meta about my character in RL games a secret, meanwhile I'm constantly directing my group-mates here, most of them know me by my avatar too. So if they come here and I've got a sheet up, bam, they know my Metagame; I am tired of using my signature thread as a workground for projects that aren't ready for their own thread yet. See the heavily WIP class / discipline combo in there now. But it is a place I am reasonably sure that no one else will notice until I'm ready to move it elsewhere, a Private board will alleviate that; I will soon be an active PbP DM, and I would rather have things here, formated in ways I can do here, than on my Laptop, formatted in Word.

Two)
Putting my vote in for a Sig board.
I disagree that that would be "putting our indexes in an Index". It would be putting our index files into a folder.
@ Osle: Your sig has a link to your Monster Classes. As does, well, everyone else's. In your monster classes board, you have an index. Your index (Sig thread), leads to a folder (board), that contains its own index to locate content within that folder (board). You do not have an "index in your index". You have a very efficient system of indexes and folders.
I've asked for something similar.
Instead I've been keeping things locally. Lots of links all over sky drive is wayyy too time consuming. As a result, I'm a little unsure if certain things have been posted here. It enables my laziness.

Is it possible to put a border around a section of text? I would just use [quote], but that and the [float] tag don't play nice with each other.
