FormattingTag Guide - List of Flags & Avatars

About formatting

When posting content on Lycanthropia.net, HTML tags are stripped automatically. Instead, there are inline formatting tags available, also known as BBcode. This ensures that formatting is consistent across the site, and avoids issues arising from broken HTML.

If you've been around for a while you will no doubt have encountered BBcode tags on forums over the years, but if this is new to you, the tags are explained below. If you need help with anything, don't hesitate to reach out to an admin.
