The 'font' stuff is not just 'font stuff' it is any CSS. Examples (links to?) would be useful.

I meant, like links to 'examples of useful CSS attributes', some are mentioned here, in this thread, some in others.

But good, safe fonts and colors might be useful as well. We shouldn't assume others see things the way we do, fonts are tricky on the web, and possibly best kept as simple as possible.

It is more important to convey information clearly than to make it look pretty.

I read somewhere that it's more based on what fonts the individual user has installed rather than what BBCode can support. I wonder if there's a standard list for the major browsers. I can definitely see the attraction to having more colorful fonts to give certain NPCs a bit more flavor

Jabes’s list are the ones built into the site. They’ll be fine.

And who's idea was it to build Comic Sans into the site? *picks up pitchfork* :P

Okay - that's an exception. Cursive is a browser-specific one, each device might render it differently. If you get Comic Sans then that's on you for using a PC.

I see cursive, but then I'm on Chrome on mobile. I'm trying to think of what other fonts folks could want....maybe a robotic language or something?

GMs - Please use this tag only for evil

The existence of a note tips players off to the fact you're being sneaky.

Create a note, but change the opening and closing tags to the word "private" instead of note.

The DM will see what they've done, but it'll appear like a normal block of text to the relevant players. No note tags, or private tags or anything.

I've used this to give different players different maps, with one pair of players having extra text too.

I hope GMs running Halloween games have a lot of fun with this. 😈

Random Question about this what happens if the post only has the Private in it?

The guide to gamer's plan BBC code is exactly what I've been looking for. Thank you!
Dec 19, 2021 4:42 pm
Absolutely, a stellar job putting it together!

Amazing work Adam, though we may have to take your developer badge away... developers don't traditionally write documentation. :)
Dec 19, 2021 5:39 pm
Nice, we finally have some documentation.
Dec 19, 2021 5:48 pm
Great work on the BBCode documentation, @Adam! May I suggest linking to it from @Naatkinson's New GP Member Guide &/or one of @Qralloq's videos?
