True, but you can paste a link to one.
Just click this:
And paste the link and type in an optional title. So, for example, let’s say I wanted a link for this topic. And wanted it titles, “help”. I just click that, and paste in the link and give it the title “help” and it comes out like this: Help.
Awesome topic! It is really helpful and organized, I think.
I should make a topic for people stuck in 2016.
Which I am still stuck in.
Hey @tankt2016 can you add your thing for the newbies with the text tips and stuff about omtl and stuff to this
So everyone who checks this can see it
I didn’t even know about the aqua text before I saw that
A huge welcome guide for new users
Welcome to the forum!
Also, remember this is a forum built for a coding app. It’s not just some random kids’ chatroom. ; )
So, here’s some huge welcome that took half an hour to put together.
By the way, try tagging
@discobot start new user
but not with that font. Discobot has a surprise for you…
I’m going to put the welcome in a dropdown box thingy. Because it’s huge.
Welcome to the forum!
Welcome to the forum!
Have this huge thing of information I put together!
Just tag me if you need any help.
Fonts are fun to experiment with, so here are some HTML font tricks!
<a> makes aqua text </a>
Aqua!! There also used to be red, green, and blue colors, but I think it messed up the color scheme of the forum or something.
You can just type random letters for that, too. Just keep the thingies at the end.
# type # and a space for big bold text
<big> makes big text </big>
<sub> makes low and small text </sub>
Regular text vs. sub text
There’s one to make the text high and small, too, but I forget it.
** this text will be bold **
*this text will be italicized*
<s> strikethrough text </s>
<u>this text will be underlined</u>
Okay, on second thought, maybe they deleted that font trick…
Now here is one JonnyGamer invented.
Put some text here
Add more here
Keep adding lines of text
Add as many as you want
Remember to hit enter after typing
<sub>, else the trick won’t work.
It’ll turn out with the lines of text on top of each other, like this!
the forum! This is
how the font trick will
Here’s a link to a topic on more cool fonts, even though I probably covered a lot of them.
How To Tag
Tagging someone will send that user a notification.
This is how you tag someone.
Just type an @ and then put the user’s username next to it to send them a notification!
Don’t worry, the tag I used doesn’t actually tag @anyone.
Don’t type @ and omtl together, unless you’re making a contest or something, you’ll tag 150+ people. And members of the OMTL aren’t that happy when they get tagged for something random like
Oops! Oops! Loop-de-loop!
And other pointless stuff like that. Be aware, there are guidelines on OMTL usage, and I suggest you read them. (Oh, and OMTL stands for Official Mass Tag List.)
If you want, you can join the OMTL here.
There should be a “join” button on that page somewhere, in addition to the OMTL guidelines.
Then there’s the POMTL (Project Official Mass Tag List), tagged by a person who made a project who would like constructive criticism or tips on improving on his or her coding. This one consists of 61 people.
You can join here.
Again, don’t tag it for random things and leave the OMTL and POMTL if you leave the forum.
Also, I strongly recommend going over the Community Guidelines, because if you break them, you’ll probably be suspended, and I have no idea how long that one user has gotten suspended for. Basically no bad words, be humble, try not to get in an argument or flame war, don’t give away personal information, don’t spam (post random stuff), and be positive. Oh, and put your General Topic in the #random-stuff category. (And you won’t be able to access that category until you’re of the Member trust level, which shouldn’t take to long to earn if you’re active.
Here’s a link:
Links To Helpful Topics
Here’s some links to other helpful topics for new users! Some of them might even contain more links!
Made by @tankt2016
Thanks this I think is the most helpful guide for new users
You’re welcome, and thanks! I’ll probably be editing it more.
PLEASE i beg you strike the link to my topic from the list
Thanks for sharing the link to this topic on other topics, tankt! I hope my topic helps other users. Also, if your new here you can ask any questions you have.
Sorry OMTL if you were tagged again, I edited the post so there’s more information. I didnt tag you again, it just automatically tags you when you edit a post the omtl was tagged in i think
Oh yeah, whoops.
I just copy and paste that thing.
Come join the Party! It will be fun!
Ok, thanks for the info for that…
