    Nice flag, huh?

    However, look at it if I try to put in ONE star.

    [hl=blue]|[/hl][hl=white]|[/hl][hl=blue]||||||||||||||||||[/hl][hl=red]||||||||||||||||||||[/hl]

    [hl=white]||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    [/hl]
    [hl=red]||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

    [/hl]


    What's with that?

    EDIT:

    Reopening.

    Actually, I want to know WHY it does that.

    I don't follow your question.

    Edit: No problem. :) Here's the spaced out coding for those of you playing at home:

    [ hl=blue][ color=white]**********[ /hl][ /color][ color=red][ hl=red]********************[ /hl][ /color]
    [ hl=blue][ color=white]**********[ /hl][ /color][ color=white][ hl=white]********************[ /hl][ /color]

    Never mind.

    //locks thread

    Thanks for the help Sebulba-X.

    I opened it again.

    There's a bug with the codes. It doesn't want to work if I have them really close.

    Here's a reformed flag:

    [hl=blue].*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.[/hl][hl=red]******************[/hl]
    [hl=blue]..*.*.*.*.*.*.*...[/hl][hl=white]******************[/hl]

    That one has 8 stripes. [face_plain]

    That one now has 9 stripes on the bottom and 4 stripes on the top.

    It's 7 stripes on the top and 6 stripes on the bottom.

    Mine looks better.

    :D

    The topic isn't who can make the best American flag.

    The topic is what the heck is wrong with the markup codes.

    There. The trick is not to use more than one space in a row since Snowboards doesn't like that. alt-0160 is larger than a space, apparently, so that doesn't work either.

    The same problem occurs with any markup code if used over and over again... It's kinda like the smileys. Not much of a cure :(

    It's not really in his sig, if you look carefully you can see the real sig section below the flag.
    He made a cunning copy of the sig text but forgot to remove everything from the old sig so now signature is written twice.
