Proper use of BBCode make this forum a better place for everyone. Make sure you read these if you are not too familiar with BBCode.

Unnecessary quote is the biggest problem in this forum, even some senior members have problems with the quote function. Here I'll give you examples on how to properly quote someone's reply in your own reply.

Make sure you mention who is the author of the quote you're using. To put the user's name in your quote, do this:

[quote="User_A"]User_A's response[/quote]
Your own response start here, not immediately after [/quote], and don't use multiple line break ("enter" key) before you type in your own response please, they look really ugly.

User_A is the username of the member you're quoting from.

If the quote you're using doesn't have an author, for example you took a passage from some other website, you can just use the normal quote function without the ="User_A" part.

I have seen a lot of people throwing in random URL without properly formatting them, resulting in ugly posting with ugly links that's long and stupid. Here's a way to format your link properly by using keyword (keyword = the word that will be display as hyperlink so that when people click on the word, they are directed to the webpage. A keyword is usually the media title or filename if it's a download link)


When you are making a download thread, filesize and filetype information should be included with the download link whenever possible, this can help other members to decide if they should download the media. (they might realize they have the same file already after judging from the filesize) If you are posting a video, please include some screenshots if possible. Those really helps, and make your posting look more professional.

First of all, read the Channel-Ai rules and don't break any of the rules mentioned there. Regarding image size limit, the width of the image should not exceed 500 pixels. This makes the topic load faster without oversized images and large images tend to screw up the forum layout, which is optimized for desktop with 800*600 resolution.

To post an image, simply do the following:


* your_image_url generally looks like this:

If you want to insert hyperlink for your images, add the extra url tag outside of your img tag as follow:


Shortcut Keys
Do any of you guys realized that there's shortcut key for inserting BBCode just like how you use "Ctrl+C" to copy in Windows? Here's a few really handy shortcut for inserting common BBCode (highlight the text you want to apply the BBCode to, then press the following shortcut key):
    alt + b - Bold
    alt + i - Italic
    alt + p - Image
    alt + w - URL

I think that's about it for this BBCode tutorial. More info will be added later if necessary. You can read the "official" guide by clicking the link below.
