I would say that the average user never uses any of the BBCodes. Heck, most don't even use standard English. Anyone who finds it too complex can ask for help or ignore the feature, like they do with lists and bigimgs and gamelinks and playerlinks and url links and quotes and ...

This is a good idea, and I'm really surprised phpBB doesn't already have it integrated. Other forum software packages have had it for years. :-s

We could also put in a User Guide in Questions & Answers, like we have for many other Forum related difficulties.

Indeed. I like the idea of Option 1. For tournaments that aren't too involved (okay, some of mine ARE too involved), it would be a great help.

I'm going to sticky this. If we keep getting more support (TO's let your fellow TO's know), I'll move it to submitted.

Would it be within the forum guidelines to start a topic in the Foundry Discussions forum to draw attention to this? I'm pretty sure a lot of mapmakers would appreciate the ability to post tabular data without going through hoops.

I believe that would be fine, but to make sure I'd ask MrBenn.

i started one yesterday in the TO's usergroup forum to encourage them to come here.

additional support could also come from Clan Leaders for tracking data in challenges and the SOC trainers. is there anyone here able to post there to let them know?

I would love to see this implemented. It would be a great help for my tournament scoring.

Posted in the CLA, and PM sent to mpjh to have him let other SoC teachers know (feel free to send PM's to leaders of areas like this in the future letting them know about suggestions that would benefit them).

How hard can it be to type the following?

Code: Select all
[table]
[tr]
   [th][/th]
   [th][/th]
   [th][/th]
[/tr]
[tr]
   [td][/td]
   [td][/td]
   [td][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
   [td][/td]
   [td][/td]
   [td][/td]
[/tr]
[/table]




Sure that users that need it will know the syntax and will use it properly.

OK, if this can help us create a table that identifies games with players from the same Training Ground (forum), then we certainly can use it.

As a tournament organizer and a clan leader...i think there are a lot of things this could make easier. Uploading excel worksheets as a photo sucks. I'm not a tech guy but if i can use these buttons to figure out how to manipulate images of pigs...i'm pretty sure a table wouldn't be that hard to get the hang of.

And if you are clever enough in Excel, you would simply add the tags there to basically automate it.
