    That's good to hear. If you're looking for a background, just try googling "background patterns" and there's a lot to find. ;)
    As for CSS, there are a lot of commands, and I can't just tell them all. Here also goes, there are really helpful sites to look something up. I can cover the basics and if there's something specific you'd like to know, just ask, okay?

    Spoiler:
    border: width style color
    Example: [cd=border:5px dotted red]text goes here[/cd]

    While there are other possibilities, it's the easiest to mention the width in pixels. Don't forget to mention the "px" part.
    Border style can be either solid, dotted, dashed, double (two solid borders), groove, ridge, inset or outset.


    Width and height do exactly what you expect them to do, they set the width and height for a block, so that it doesn't stretch all the way over the screen. You can either set them in pixels (px) or as a percentage of the width (or height) of the page (%). Take a look at these examples. Try changing the window size and see what happens.

    [cd=border: 3px solid black;width:500px;height:100px]...[/cd]

    [cd=border: 3px solid black;width:60%;height:100px]...[/cd]

    Backgrounds
    [cd=background-color:purple]...[/cd]


    [cd=background-image:url('http://i.imgur.com/Du821G2.png')]...[/cd]


    Padding
    [cd=background-image:url('http://i.imgur.com/Du821G2.png');padding:10px]...[/cd]
    Here's what happens when padding is added.


    Margin is in fact the opposite. Where padding leaves space open within the block, margin does it on the outside.

    Last for today is float, which is a very helpful command. You can either make an object float left, right or center.
    See this thingy here, it's floating the right of the text.
    [cd=float:right;border:3px dashed green;width:200px;padding:5px]...[/cd]


    I'm not sure how much you already knew, so I'm sorry if this is all old information. I hope it's some help. Everything clear?

    Sorry I replied late. Thanks! My region is still in development and I plan to have it open up within the week. As for the CSS, I'm having a hard time to look for backgrounds that would look good with text so I decided to just have no background at all. Since I'm just using the basic codes in a thread here that I found, I'd like to go more in-depth in CSS.

    Oh no, just since July. The hype was real when it just opened up, as with anything new. Things have settled down a bit now. There was a special event regarding an attack by Mewtwo which was solved just now.
    Your region looks good, it got approved! It's not as advanced as the other regions, but that can't be expected when you just got it up. (And you have a map that's not a pencil sketch, in which it surpasses mine.) Do you need any help with CSS to pimp your post?

    By the way, I noticed you've colored your profile. Looks good!

    I thought the WoPC was a section that was here a long long time ago. Seems I was mistaken. WoPC really made me hyped up just because of the idea of having your own region and having neighboring regions. I also made my own region which is still currently in the approval process. I'll join yours after I figure out what Pokemon I want to bring with me. Raoga looks nice. I'll finish my sign-up ASAP.

    Sure. I'll let you know when one of the smaller games opens up.

    The WoPC is a fairly new section, in fact it's the newest subforum right now. It's hard to tell you all about its style, because it's impossible to predict which direction the place is going. Basically people can make a region there and showcase about the Pokémon, stories, history, people and everything in there and they can interact with other regions. (I actually have region too: Raoga!) Everyone can give their thread their own twist and there are no real limits to what you can do and what you can't. While its style shares the most similarity with roleplaying in the RPT, but it can take on parts of every part of the forum.

    I feel much more obligated to join a smaller game after reading all of these. Thanks! I'd love to know more about the World of PokéCommunity if you don't mind.

    They're not all the same, but it really depends on the game and game master how much it differs from a standard game. Each game has a day phase (in which everybody votes to kills someone) and a night phase (in which some people can use special actions). The games all have a unique set of roles, but aside that there's only a few games that altered the basic rules (for example The Darkest Dungeon, which is going on now, has a system with hit points and attacks instead of normal votes). Most it is just flavor to the theme, so same roles are often named differently in other games.

    I'm not that familiar with the game so I'll be looking forward to one of the smaller games. Since each game has its very own theme, does each game has its own sets of rules?

    The Underground? Good choice! Are you familiar with the game already? If not I suggest to start with one of the smaller games. Big games can take very long and you can't simply just around. One of the games, the biggest so far, started on July 1st and still hasn't finished yet. Big games require a lot of reading as there can easily appear several pages of posts in a day.
    I don't want to scare you of or anything, because it's really fun! The UG regulars are all really nice people (when they're not trying to kill each other, haha).

    Currently there aren't any games open for sign ups, but I think Mathia (mathematics themed Mafia) will be ending soon, which will open up another small game. According to the Game Index it will be based on Danganronpa.
    Another option is to play Epic Mafia, which is a quicker game in which all players are online at the same time. Games like these last about 15 minutes and will be held at random moments when there appears to be interest in the Underground's Skype chat.

    Nice to meet you too Lycan!

    Why don't we start with The Underground? I'd love to play a round or two.

    Hello there, fblade!

    I don't know if you've read my bio in the first post of the Adoption Center, but in case you haven't my name's Lycan and I'm a second year Chemistry student who frequents The Underground and Pokémon Trivia here. Nice to meet you!

    You appear to be interested in many of PC's sections, that's great! There are lots of interesting places here and if I had the time I would visit nearly all of them for sure. But yeah, I don't think we should jump into all at once. So where shall we start?

    Also if you have any questions regarding anything, please ask away!
