Wow, it's really been eleven months since the forum was first put up? Dang, time flies...or slithers along really fast. Either way.

During the course of this not-quite-year we've added several non-standard codes for the forum. While these are all listed on the post page, some of them are less intuitive than others, so here's a listing with some example usage.




Center
[center]
Centers post content. Mainly for signature layouts.
Code:
[center]I know a little song, it isn't very long.
HEY![/center]

I know a little song, it isn't very long.
HEY!




Right Align
[rightalign]
Right-aligns post content. Mainly for signature layouts.
Code:
[rightalign]Commander, are you [i]sure[/i] this is the planet Earth?
It looks a heck of a lot like the [i]sun[/i]![/rightalign]

Commander, are you sure this is the planet Earth?
It looks a heck of a lot like the sun!




Strikethrough
[s]
Applies a strikethrough (ie a line through the middle) to text. Theoretically to allow for edits to inaccurate post content while acknowledging what was there before, in practice it seems to be most useful for sarcasm.
Code:
That's the most [s]ridiculous[/s] inefficient thing I've ever heard.

That's the most ridiculous inefficient thing I've ever heard.



Spoiler
[spoiler=]
Puts content into a nifty collapsed box, that can be expanded by visitors with a click. As the name implies, is intended to allow spoilers to be posted while remaining to courteous to visitors who don't want to be exposed to spoilers for media they've yet to see/read/etc.

The = in the tag is mandatory; an optional title can be included within the tag after the = , and in such a case the collapsed box with mention the title prior to expansion (useful if including a spoiler not directly related to the thread subject)

Note that the forum does not have an official policy on what's considered a spoiler.

Code:
[spoiler=Final Fantasy X]Auron is unsent![/spoiler]

[Reveal] Spoiler: Final Fantasy X
Auron is unsent!




Subscript
[sub]
Makes text subscript, ie small and aligned with the bottom of other text. Commonly used for chemical formulae, but other uses exist.
Code:
Billy was a chemist's kid, now Billy is no more.
For what he thought was H[sub]2[/sub]O was H[sub]2[/sub]SO[sub]4[/sub].

Billy was a chemist's kid, now Billy is no more.
For what he thought was H2O was H2SO4.



Superscript
[sup]
Makes text superscript, ie small and aligned with the top of other text. Commonly used for exponents, but other uses exist.
Code:
a[sup]2[/sup]+b[sup]2[/sup]=c[sup]2[/sup]

a2+b2=c2



YouTube Embedded Player
[youtube]
Embeds a YouTube player inside a post, instead of requiring an external link.

The tag's content should be the "v=" section of the YouTube address of the clip; for the example given below, the YouTube address was: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Gm6czdcp3k

Code:
[youtube]9Gm6czdcp3k[/youtube]
