Are there any special codes/tags I can use to format my posts and messages?

For the most part, your posts will contain plain text, but on occasion, you may want to emphasize certain words or phrases by making them (for example) bold or italic.

Depending on the rules of the board, you may use HTML code to produce these effects. However, more often than not, the administrator will have disabled HTML code, and opted instead to use vB Code: a special set of tags which you can use to produce the most popular text-effects. vB code has the advantage that it is very simple to use, and is immune to malicious javascripts and page layout disruption.

Code Buttons, Message Icons and Clickable Smilies

Can I add attachments to my posts?

No, this function is disabled. Only the administrator may allow you to use the attachment feature of this board, which gives you the ability to attach files of certain types to your posts.

What Are Moderators?

Moderators oversee specific forums. They generally have the ability to edit and delete posts, move threads, and perform other manipulations. Becoming a moderator for a specific forum is usually rewarded to users who are particularly helpful and knowledgeable in the subject of the forum they are moderating.
