I'm confused! Is there a limit on how many "!!" to use on chat?

@Arkán, I believe it's only for Youtube videos. Since they're aren't any other BBCodes that are for other sites.
e.g. [youtube] [/youtube]

_________________________________

@Rosy, just a normal Youtube link, e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8bYgVEfAUo

I've noticed that with different computers,

Code: Select all

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8bYgVEfAUo[/youtube]
^^ this scenario doesn't always work. It depends on the computer for some weird reason. At least that's the case with the two computers that are in my house.

@Beth, we try to keep the question mark limit kind of low. We don't want people posting like, twelve exclamation or question marks just because their happy or excited about something or whatever. It's considered spam. One or two punctuation marks will get the point across just as well. :)

It's shocking isn't it? Sorry it took soooo long. Us mods just kind of guess another mod will do it. I just decided to answer since no one else would. ;)
If you have any other questions, I'll do my best to answer it.

The admins will have to look into it. They're the ones that are in charge of setting up stuff like BBCodes. As of right now, I'm not sure.

No, I don't have that kind of power. Only admins can change other users avatars.

Admins have the dark blue names. Namely Aaron Wiley and God's Girl. (Jacob is also an admin but he isn't on much).

It was done like that intentionally. It might be changed, but for now, it's gonna stay the way it is. :)

So that the replies will not be "quick replies" and will be more thought out.

That means that topic will always be at the top of the forum, even if it isn't the most recent topic to be posted in. Keep in mind, however, that only mods and admins are allowed to sticky things.

I have a random question: Why does one of our members (Troll to be specific...) have the name color of a mod?
Here is the link to the page where his name comes up on our members list: http://odysseyscoop.com/forum/memberlist.php?start=100
