    On the lower right of the tool bar in advanced mode, there's an H icon. Or you can just type ["HIDE"] text you wanna hide ["/HIDE"] without the quotation marks.
    Game & Sound is my Youtube Channel. I make Video Game Music Covers.

    Hey....I've tried to delete a few of my posts within the 5 minute limit and I can't find anywhere that says that I can delete the post; I know the instructions say it's there but I have no idea where. Help?

    You can't delete posts. At one point members were able to, but the privlage was abused so it was removed

    Gotcha. I have 2 posts that I just edited down to _ since I didn't quote the OP if any moderators want to delete them. In the future I'll copy + paste the quote tags. Sorry about that.

    Just an FYI, you know there's a multi-quote button at the far right, right? That way you avoid having to copy/paste




    ​With my last breath, I curse Zoidberg!!!

    *if you add my NNID, try to go through Miiverse so I get a notification, and let me know it's from Wii U Forums

    We should archive this thread as a relic of a lost era.

    It took me a while to become an official forum member.

    I don't remember Fortissimo. The first poster I knew was The Detonator, but he didn't post until the end of 2012, which was after we were merged.
