When did the new formatting options appear ?? I've only seen one person use one of them and that was the marquee one.... Talk about annoying as h*ll !!

What value do they add ?? Are they really necessary ?? I'd hate to see things like this abused but many people eventually will.

"S" tag ?
This is a test

"PIE" tag ?
[PIE]This is a test[/PIE]

"WIKI" tag ?
[WIKI]This is a test[/WIKI]

"MARQ" tag ?
[MARQ]This is a test[/MARQ]

"GLOW" tag ?
This is a test

Hmmm, requires "options" ??

"SHADOW" tag ?
This is a test

Options here too....

I can see value in the WIKI one, since it hotlinks what you tag to Wikipedia. That has lots of potential.

I agree the rest of them are more bells/whistles, and less functional. But I am also guessing that they are now part of vBulletin's package from the most recent update.

Yeah, the WIKI tag could be useful, in fact. It's the others that "concern" me. I was just hoping there was an option to not enable them and that other users might agree and therefore the site turn them off. Granted though, most people probably reply in the small, limited reply-box at the bottom of each page and won't see these options anyway. Thank goodness ! :D

I think some have been there for some time. I use a few on my own mboard. I use the Marquee one with a bus image...

I'm viewing this in FF and it works fine.

I love "Adblock" since it nukes the greenies aka Intellitxt and Flash stuff.

I'd read that marquee only works in IE... Sadly, that's not true. :( Thank goodness for "adblock" ! :D
