Sorry, but is there a way to post important words on a thread here in bold, and in bigger

I was trying to help on the starter thread below, and wanted to emphasize a few words, but I don't know how to do it on this forum with its, as MeanGene calls it, "Jurassic software".

So how do you guys put words in bold, italic, or even made a few words a bit bigger?

Do you just use a Windows program like Notepad, or Wordpad, and copy/paste?

This has been bugging me for a while now.

YES

That is for bold.

When you Reply to a post - make sure the check box is checked for "formatted text" and then Click "what's this" (the URL) to give you all the formatting options available.

For instance, to bold: the text you wanted bolded would have you using a b in brackets and then close it with a b slash in brackets.

And this is important because why???

October 11 2017, 9:49 PM 

Posting in capitals is considered yelling so bold or enlarged seems like trying to get a message to the deaf. No offense but I don't think anyone's comments here merit anything more than regular text. Either the poster reads the input or not. This isn't Yellowbullet yet...

Same thoughts here- there's no reason for it

October 12 2017, 4:46 AM 

One of the main reasons I like this forum is because it isn't trashed up with emoticons, every manner of font and formatting and such garbage. I don't do other forums- mainly because of all that completely needless junior high, smiley face crap and crazy, diligently-crafted formatting.

Think before you post, simply type plain text without the caps locked and be respected or rejected on those merits alone. There's already enough chaos in the world from people doing unnecessary things just because they can.

that's not my formatting

When you post an active link, like to any of the numerous c/l ads, link to member profile or email or other websites posted here, it formats to bold by default just as it is usually underlined and blue...
