i had recently been promoted to Administrator of another site a few weeks ago, and was trying to figure out something neat to add, so I figured, NEW BB CODE!
So I made a [marquee] BBC tag, and thought PC would like it as well!

All ready to go into vBulletin's BB Code Manager!
Code:
<marquee direction={option}>{param}</marquee>
For non-computer savy members here that want to know what a marquee is, a marquee is a nice little feature to use when you want some text to scroll across the screen.

An example of how this tag could be used...
Example:
[marquee=right]THIS TEXT WILL COME FROM THE RIGHT OF THE SCREEN[/marquee]


ALSO
If the [marquee] tag gets added into the BB Code list, You could also give the users here a more definitive control over the marquee, since "direction" is not the only thing that can be controlled. (Others including the width of the marquee, the number of times it repeats, and the speed of the marquee)

An HTML version of that can be found below.

Code:
<marquee {option}>{param}</marquee>
An example of one of those being used can be found below as well.

Example:
[marquee=direction="right" behavior="slide" width="50%"]THIS TEXT WOULD SLIDE IN FROM THE RIGHT, AND STOP ON THE LEFT[/marquee]



This IS just a suggestion for a cool BB Code to be added to the BB Code list, so I thought I would bring it up! Have a nice day all.

Mine as well put a sign on it.

But,I think that the BB code we have works perfectly fine. So, I don't think we really new one. Let's just subside this suggestion as of right now. Doubt we need it anytime soon.

Well of course we don't need it, but hey you know, it wouldn't really hurt anything.
It is like the sound clip's, we don't really need it, but it is fun, heheh.

I figured it could be used to have something run down the sides of someone's Hack thread, like a falling pokeball, it could make for interesting signatures too, as you could have a GIF of one of the players running across the area of your signature, you know?

but keep in mind I never said it was needed, and I agree, the BB Code list is great, just thought it would be fun, heheh.

ALSO
Granted there isn't a single reason to add it, I pretty much made it a copy/paste job for any Admin to do add, so I guess there would be no reason to NOT add it either.

Well we sure didn't need the music clip one but it's still fun. We sure don't need this but it's still fun as well :D

Maybe this would go as a fine addition...not to mention it could finally attract the attention of those idiots that post about game help in the CQF.

If this was available, people would no doubt spam it in there sigs and it would get really annoying just to look at the page.

I sense a new Spey on the horizon. It isn't a new BBCode per se, it's just an addition to the current BBCode.

Like the josephine quote.

That's why there are wonderful things called rules, and even more wonderful thing called "Parsers". I believe the BB to HTML parsers can detect abuse of those tags like it censors out words.

Yeah, it probably would be used in a lot of signatures.
Much like the CSS tag, and the Sound Clip tag.
It would certainly draw attention to a user though, like if they wanted to show off a thread of theirs, or advertise their forum. (Since that it only allowed in a signature.)

So what, have marquees banned from sigs altogether? Because anything constantly moving like that would be distracting when you're trying to read the posts.

So are GIF images, so don't complain, you see those all the time and get used to them like a good internet habitant.

Personally, I think it'd be a pretty nice addition to the BBcode list.

The Admins would have to add something like that to their server, from what I know about vB, nothing like that exists though...
Though it may entirely be possible!

Good thing there ARE signature rules already, like preventing a user from making their signature content "Float" out of the signature area, meaning, you can't use the "UP" direction in a signature.
Well... you could, but you would have to make a CSS Style box, since marquee loops within the HTML area it is written, and since the CSS-div tag just goes from BBC to HTML, the marquee would only loop within the CSS-div box.

Believe me, I've seen a lot of GIFs and a lot of marquees in my day, and while GIFs have the potential to be more annoying than marquees, they are no where near as abused. A simple animation doesn't compare to a marquee. For a GIF to be more annoying it would have to repeatedly flash or move like a marquee in the animation, though marquee usage is a lot more common.

Well, if GIF's and Marquees bother you in Signatures, why don't you just turn signatures off?
I mean, since signatures are SO DISTRACTING, you can simply click "User CP" and then do to "Options", scroll down a little ways, and disable Signatures.
You can also disable Images, Avatars, and Smileys, amongst other various things.

Now please don't try to come up with OH SO TERRIBLE things about marquees, they are not that annoying.

Well personally and honestly. I turn them down for a reason. It's just the idea doesn't seem well that important.
You can say it's a good idea all you want but, hey we all have our own opinion. I don't say no for no reason. I say no because, I actually do have a reason.

Are you kidding? Marquees are famous for being annoying, many a meme has resulted. The Wikipedia page for it has its first section dedicated to outlining the annoyances of marquees. Just search it on Google and everyone is complaining about it.

Nobody adds non-standard HTML tags anymore. Certainly not Internet Explorer-proprietary ones. Nobody. We actually removed tags for the same reason, actually.

I remember those glow tags.. used them when I was noob.

I think Marquee here is just.. no. xD; In my opinion anyway, because people would severely abuse it. It's not very often that you see tastefully done marquee messages, they used to be trendy, but these days they're more like a nightmare to people's eyesight. D8;

Yeah, I'm one of those people that manage to pull off nice effects using marquees...
It really is the only tag from that 90's period I would end up using.

I wasn't here for glow, lol, but I can imagine THAT getting really annoying.

Well, pretty easy to tell this wont be added, can someone close this? Not really needed at this point...
