So I am in the middle of writing the most epic of session reviews, but each time I want to make a nifty manuver, such as begin my paragraphs with your typical "5 spaces/tab", to comfort my word doc side, I am at a loss.

Is it possible for us geeks to have a Pinned Thread with, if not EVERY possible, for lack of better words, "manuver", legend?

I assure you I intend to use the hell out of this thread and I'm sure there are other geeks out there who are out of the know in terms of "html?" posting?

Well, there are so many pinned tabs in HOWTOBGG and New User Questions...!

To answer your immediate question, you use [c] [/c] with as many spaces as you wish. C is a button to the right of "Insert Geek Link". It stands for Code, and makes any text in it fixed width, so it can be used to make tables and simple diagrams. Last, if you ever see something formatted in a way you like, quote the message and you'll see the code.

Indeed, I figured out the quote trick to get the URL going, I figured at the very least an explanation thread would be more than useful for those who wish to dabble in Session/Reviews, or even posts.

Whats one more pin?

I'm not a fan of pinned forum threads. If you find some nifty trick for formatting a forum post then I think it would be better to add it to the wiki which organizes things much better.

Problem is:

and has been for a very long time.

Also, in a forum thread you can demonstrate the code, and the user can quote the message to see the actual code and compare it to the effect.

I dont understand...the link and the wiki formatting link both give me more than enough information to assist me with posts. Disabled?

As in, users can't search the wiki themselves as the search function does not work. So you needed good old Tall Walt to give you the link.
