  1. I was trying to edit my signature on here but when I made it and tried to save the changes it said: Sorry, your signature contains BB Code Tags that are not allowed.What does that mean and how can I change it?

    BB Code (Bulletin Board Code) is code that wraps text to give it special formating.
    Code:
    [I]text[/I]
    Are you copying your signature from a different site? If so some of the formating may not be allowed here at TS.

    I'm not even sure if we support bbcode anymore since we moved on to the new community platform. As for signatures, we only allow plain text and a couple of links in there, no formatting.

    All I tried was typing this "Best Game Out There: Amnesia: The Dark Descent" with Amnesia: The Dark Descent being a link to http://www.amnesiagame.com/#main

    Must be the color code. Use plain text with the link and you should be good.

    Ok thanks it updated but I have to wait until I'm on my computer because I can't figure out how to hyper link the words on my iPod.

    Yes I do, I love Amnesia for some reason it gives me a trill and is more realistic then other games I've tried playing and well I don't know I kinda feel attached to it lol, I know its kind of weird but oh well.
