  2. Since it has happened MULTIPLE times now, I want to be very clear about this. You do not get to abandon an account and create a new one. You do not get to pass an account to someone else and create a new one. If you do so anyway, you will be banned for creating sockpuppets.

    Background color for text doesn't seem to work. It's visible in the rich text editor but disappears when posting or when entering the bb-code editor.

    Xenforo doesn't actually have a BBcode for text backgrounds like that.

    Sure explains it. Now the question is why it's an option in the editor.

    Probably there are some forums (bbcode or not) that support that function, so it's enabled by default. The rich text editor is something of a black box.

    I can poke around and see if I can disable it, sometime later.
