We currently only have 5 bb codes/tags bold, italic, link, image and quote. I've been thinking lately that we can have different codes like spoilers, titles, codes and we can have emoticons. I already know about the colour text rule but what about the other ones? I'm sure those who are new to forums are going "what is a [insert bb code tag here]" and I don't recall anybody talking abou something like this in particular(let me know if this has already been suggested before).

I have found a site that has different bb codes that we can use(don't bother commenting about the actual site, I just found it)It's in this link

And we can also have a "strike" code where the word can still be read but it's crossed out.

[color=#FF0000]Does this work?[/color]

Anyways... We basically already have all of that. Minus the underlines.

There is no color BB code for AG, and HTML is disabled in the forums.

If edit post is implemented, I'd imagine this is what it would be

We don't have spoilers or titles (spoilers would make it so you'd have to click "show" to be able to see it...title would make a line..bigger?)

As for emoticons...you have a keyboard in front of you

That's for text emoticons. Image emoticons require image posting, which could be simplified with emoticon tags. But I think image emoticons are not needed when they can be made in text.

I don't really understand you example of a use of edit post.

That's essentially what I was saying

Like over at Kong..when you edit a post, if you are taking something out or want to change something..it doesn't delete it..it just puts a line over it (but you are still able to read it)

You are the only person to have the emotional range less than Hawking. The keyboard typing emoticons are very very limited.

No it doesn't, you can remove all of your test from a post in Kong.
There's a different thing to use strikethroughs, iiac, it's _strikethrough_ but it's been a while since I've used Kong.

It would be nice to have something like Emoji (from iPhone) to use... But currently the text ones are sufficient. ;P

I can foresee trouble arising from that...two people having an argument/debate then one person deletes and edits certain parts of their posts to make the other look like an idiot..

It might just be me...but I'm not a fan of the goofy emoticon things. Like what I'm saying now with 2 thumbs up at the end and a smiling/laughing guy...or when someone posts an idea instead of someone saying what they like about it..they just put a smiley face or something
