What is BBCode?

BBCode enables you to add formating, colors, and styles to your text. BBCode is our implementation of HTML and CSS, which is what web designers use to create the basis of websites. It's safer than HTML, which means that if you make a mistake, it is easily fixable, and it also enables us to control which features of HTML we would like to permit.

All-in-all, it means a friendlier, better experience for you, the user!
