Not to mean any offense, but this needs to be updated with the new features like hide, sblock, and p.

Not anymore, it doesn't! :)

Also, MysteriousMrP: I have added and documented tags for those. [title], [h1], [h2], ..., [h5].

@_@ I didn't mean right away. You were working on this for Christmas?

To be completely honest, it had slipped my mind that it was Christmas Eve when I made that remark.

How it works to have the best of a die roll?

And is there a way to stop animated avatars? I hate them and I don't want to suffer seeing them.

Sounds like a feature request. I'll help you out on that front.

Using the 'Best Of' feature when rolling dice:

Code:
[dice]4d6b3[/dice]


Will give you:



GobO_Sapper rolled 4d6b3 and got a total of 16:
6, 6, 4, 3

Thanks. Small test.

True_Believer rolled 2d6b1 and got a total of 6:
4, 6


[dice]2d6w1[/dice]

There is no "worst of" feature too unfortunately. Another feature to request then.

the autocard and decklist sections should mention how to use them for NGA cards.

[manapie] tag

Basic use

ColorlessWhiteBlueBlackRedGreenAzoriusOrzhovBorosSelesnyaDimirIzzetSimicRakdosGolgariGruulEsperJeskaiBantMarduAbzanNayaGrixisSultaiTemurJundGreenlessRedlessBlacklessBluelessWhitelessRainbow

The [manapie] tag creates an image representing a combination of Magic colors. The image on the left was created with the following tag:

Code:
[manapie 180 w -u b -r -g][/manapie]

The number gives the size in pixels. All five color letters are required (in lowercase). Put a hyphen before the letter to turn off that color.



Custom text
The text automatically shows the name of the given color combination. If you want different text, put it between the opening and closing tags.
Ooh, pretty!ColorlessWhiteBlueBlackRedGreenAzoriusOrzhovBorosSelesnyaDimirIzzetSimicRakdosGolgariGruulEsperJeskaiBantMarduAbzanNayaGrixisSultaiTemurJundGreenlessRedlessBlacklessBluelessWhitelessRainbow
Code:
[manapie 150 w u b r g]Ooh, pretty![/manapie]



No text at all
If you want to have no text at all (for example if the image is meant to be a small icon), put something between the tags that doesn't display. Unfortunately a space character won't work, but a line break tag does the job [br][/br].

ColorlessWhiteBlueBlackRedGreenAzoriusOrzhovBorosSelesnyaDimirIzzetSimicRakdosGolgariGruulEsperJeskaiBantMarduAbzanNayaGrixisSultaiTemurJundGreenlessRedlessBlacklessBluelessWhitelessRainbow
And now, class, we shall discuss the wedge color combinations...
Code:
[manapie 50 -w u b -r g][br][/br][/manapie]


Firefox users
When viewed in Firefox, the mana symbols are blotchy at small sizes. Firefox has a bug in the way it resizes vector images, which should be smooth at any size. Hopefully this will be fixed in a future version of Firefox.

Hot tip: you can manage your draft posts with the User Control Panel. I assume that somebody knew that this could be done, but the option is kind of squirrelled away.

@ GobO_Welder

For the autocarding section, please add in how to autocard split cards such as Alive // Well. Doing so requires naming the first half of the card, followed by a space, then //, then a space, then naming the second half of the card.

Autocarding split cards is something people tend to have trouble figuring out so it would good to have them mentioned in this guide.

How do I do line breaks in the cells of tables? Hitting the enter key just makes all the text after that not show up.
Actually, it shows up in the next row down. The only way I insert line breaks is also how the table determines the start of a new row.

| this is text box broken up by the enter key
ending down here
I didn't even put a cell |divider in the above "row"


Also, Mr P's deck planner thing seems to have some issues displaying. Upper left corner reads, in plain text, "[manapie 90 -w u -b r"

Looks fine to me?

Thanks Welder, but most of all I'd like to thank the letter P. And square brackets I guess.
