hate to sound stupid, but what IS BBcode...
i often see people scolded for not enabling it, which now makes me afraid that I do not have it enabled either
altho, on my righthand "tool bar", it says it is enabled....
what does it do?
It allows you to use the [B
] [u] [Quote] buttons and other tags, so that when replying to someone, you can do fancy text. You can mess with it in your User Control Panel at the top left.
User Control Panel --> Board Preferences --> Edit Posting Defaults --> Enable BBCode --> Submit.
We don't really scold if someone doesn't enable it, but it helps with legibility, particularly during arguments.
