Same as images. Paste the URL, if it's not embedding let us know in the meta forum.

You can't use BBCode, sorry. There's no option to use it, and there won't be any option to use it. There won't be any options to use any kind of 'code' instead of the wysiwyg system.
What are levels?
Your level shows next to your name. It's an indication to other posters or your seniority on the forums.
How do I level up?
You gain level by reading and posting on the forums.
To avoid the temptation to spam to level up, there's a very low daily cap.
Why not just postcount and date?
Join date isn't an indication of seniority on the forums, neither is postcount.
The most valuable members to a forum visit and post every day. Level aims to be an indicator of that.
Won't people be active just to level up?
Yes, that's exactly what we're trying to encourage.
How do I bring my old account over?
- Create a new account on this site.
- When logged into your new account, visit this page.
What will then happen is that we'll give you gold if you had it, adjust your join date and convert any posts that have migrated into your current account's name. When we finish migrating the forums, all posts will be in your name.
You'll also recieve a level/coin boost based on your previous account. This isn't a massive amount of anything on purpose, and will at most equate to about 6 months on this forum.
Can I bring my banned account over?
Can I migrate multiple accounts to this account?
