If you make a thread-title a single word, and start it with a hash (#) - any post you drop into the thread will show up as a backlink – and look as though it’s been category-tagged???

You can escape a list by putting a backslash in front of the period.

For instance:

`3. Test
2. Test

  1. Test`

  3. Test

  4. Test

3\. Test 2\. Test 1\. Test

3. Test

You can use HTML code where asterisks and underscores don’t work:

I said any*thing*, not any*one*.

I said any_thing_, not any_one_.

I said any<em>thing</em>, not any<i>one</i>.

I said anything, not anyone.

I said any_thing_, not any_one_.

I said anything, not anyone.

Unescaped asterisks italicize the output, and so does underscore for some reason.

But escaped asterisks *show* the control codes in the output, as does escaping an _underscore_.

One asterisk is for italics, two asterix are for bold. Three is for both italic and bold simultaneously.


#8

And ditto for underscores.

You can strike out text like this by surrounding the text with [s] and [/s].

@OtherMichael, how do you make the super gigantic text. I need to SHOUT at someone!


#12

Thanks, eventually I figured out I was using < spoiler > instead of [spoiler]. It’s the dumb things that are so frustrating.

Here’s a good BBs hack, you can make certain people slightly teary eyed by posting images or videos from Hayao Miyazaki movies. Especially "My Neighbor Totoro."

Ok, this is weird. Paging @codinghorror. I can barely describe what is even happening right now… the text is showing up larger in the preview than it does in the actual comment, this is what it looks like in the preview:
