The rules are right here, and have been the case for many years: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/rules.php" target="_blank

It's probably the first time we've had to remind users of it, as generally users on here are able to self moderate, and refrain from abusing text formatting BBCode.

If text-formatting serves to make a post clearer and easier to read, then that's fine, if it's a distraction... don't do it.

Anyone trying multiple colour/stupid sized BBCode within a post on here will probably find themselves on the wrong end of a ban (temporary or otherwise) rather quickly.

Thats what the test forum is for too if people wanna do/test that feature if i am correct? ;) :D

Abuse of a forum is abuse of a forum, testing or otherwise. Responsible testing would involve tidying up after yourself... though that's a very rare occurrence nowadays.

I know exactly what/where he meant... though if someone insisted on being an idiot there(in the testing forum), they'll be on the wrong end of a ban too.

Ah I figured that right after I posted...if someone would spam a bunch in my testing forums(if I had one) they would probably get a big warning...then a ban if they don't stop...(although, we are pretty lenient on my board...you would have to do a lot of bad things to get banned from it) :P

We have some awsome(pretty much the best I have seen) admins here as well...and I am very glad to be part of the community. :mrgreen:

Ah cool. I dont visit the phpbb forums much. Couldnt find that link in the area51 site. Not saying it in a bad way but adding that link in the Rules and Regulation sticky on these forums would be nifty. 8)

Well, its sorta there but direct link would help those that barely even read stickies.

Hurm, I just nuked and installed the latest CVS of 2.1. I've been wanting to get a head start on creating a new style for the board, but I'm not sure how. I create a new style called "Test" based off of the subsilver template, but there's no style components for me to work on.

Or am I looking in the wrong place? (Under the Styles tab)
