For informative purposes, brackets [] will be replaced by parentheses ().

When posting in a thread, there is an inline toolbar above the text box that can be used to access most of the available posting options.

Many tags, such as the quote, spoiler and alignment tags, automatically create page breaks after they are closed.

To BOLD text:

(b) text (/b)

#########################################################

To ITALICIZE text:

(i) text (/i)

#########################################################
