Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Allow simple BBcode on signs

As of right now, signs only support basic white text, making signs bland and the same. If you could put in basic BBcode such as b or color=#xxxxxx, signs would look better than what they are right now. Some BBcodes also will not be used, such as url=x to prevent people linking to inappropriate websites, as discussed in the linked signs topic.

That looks way too unintuitive. Only 16 colors, all chosen by a hex number instead of something memorable. People shouldn't have to stare at a chart to be able to use something.

Yeah but the signs have a character limit, §c is 2 characters while color=#FE3F3F is 13 characters

yeah but who will bother to type § when most people wont even know its ALT+21 or how the character is even named to google it.
also we can exclude magic from those codes because it will lag up ee alot.

Then we could increase the character limit, or not count characters that are part of the BBCode syntax. I have no idea what color &c is without searching for a chart and looking it up, while I can tell at a glance that #FE3F3F is a bright red.

Just having `#FE3F3F<text>` and `#F33<text>` would be better than color=#FE3F3F

Works for me. tbh I think if they're going to add formatting, they could probably come up with something better than BBCode.

Re: Allow simple BBcode on signs

Would BBCode not take up character space when inputting into the sign anyways?

By default it would act as normal characters, so it would take up space.

Re: Allow simple BBcode on signs

*Bold*
/Italic/
_Underline_
-Strikethrough-
{*/Raw/*}

Bold
Italic
Underline
Strikethrough
*/Raw/*

A nice, memorable, and intuitive system.


Thank you so much for all the great, fun, and artistic worlds.
