Ahh yeah the bullet closing thing is annoying. For numbered lists, replace </list> with </list:o> for bullets replace it with </list:u> except with square brackets obviously
Then if you use an ordered list you might have to disable smilies too or the :o will be replaced with

I don't think adding fonts is a good idea. It might make things look messy, and it's kind of useless, though cool...

Judging by the posts on here there should be a <homoerotic></> tag.

Pictures are fixed indeed, and spoiler tag is a good idea

EDIT: when I click the Spoiler tag in the quote box, it opens in the original post. While funny, I don't think that's meant to be Sorry if I give you too much work, but you're doing great.

EDIT II: It seems to have fixed itself... Strange, I'm going to double-post for research purpose.

EDIT III: So far, it seems the bug only 'works' if you didn't edit your post. Editing and saving fixes it.

EDIT IV: Refreshing after editing the post re-activates the bug.

lol Eagle. yeah there is only allowed to be one spoiler box per topic right now. That includes in other posts / inside quotes. It's a simple bug, just tedious to fix.

I wouldn't be surprised if he only ever used the link to the newest post in a topic rather than trying to go to the first unread post in a topic. It would explain a lot.

Anyway, we have need of a code tag. First of all, it's impossible to 'draw' correctly with ASCII without it or a monospaced font like Courier as hopefully will get noticed when people give my depiction of two different swords a scan. Secondly, it could be helpful in the Programming forum because spacing can be not only important to keep straight what block of text does what, but also because certain languages *require* you follow some spacing rules in order for text to function.

*cough* Somagu has informed me we *do* have a code tag. However, it isn't graphically represented so I humbly suggest that get fixed.
