Or is there something legit that you want to do with HTML that you can't with BBc? If so, vB3 has the easy ability to add new tags (as was done with the [spolier] tag) so you could instead ask politely for a specific tag to be created.
Image sigs have been discussed elsewhere. The final agreed apon proposal was that if it was possible to do, it would be added as an "Opt-In" setting to your profile settings, along with the other signiture controls. However, I never heard back on how the testing went.
looks like the Hex codes workShovel said:1) With sigs: You will need to chase up the thread in question, since it was up in the air last time I checked.
2) Just because you like HTML doesn't make it remotely applicable to forums. And as for colours, I haven't foggiest (note the petition to have [color] removed..). Since all it does is convert the  into the equivilent HTML, I imagine you could enter hex codes, try it and see. Not here.
Oooh, so colour hasn't been disabled?Elcain said:looks like the Hex codes work
It did, he just got that post in before it actually happened (as you quote him 'hex' doesnt show up in different colours anymore).Shovel said:Oooh, so colour hasn't been disabled?
Actually if someone hadn't started this thread the stuff that's recently been turned off would most likely have been left alone.

If something that people might enjoy isn't being changed then they just ain't happy it seems. :\

HTML being turned on a bad thing.
Hell, I'd be happy enough if the smilies were turned off.
Readability > all.
