    I was wondering how everyone uses BBCode here. So I created a poll. I voted for writing fully.

    I just type it out. No need to post slower by clicking buttons.

    Both, I don't know all the code by memory.
    Edit : I'm talking about smilies too, which I don't know them all.

    about the "quote" "image" etc., it depends, but I usually first write the text, then select a portion of it, and finally click the button to "en-caps" the text with the quote/code/irl/img

    I just type it, I'm having a hard time using the buttons since they sometimes add brackets to the end of the post when I want them in the middle and stuff... so in the end it's faster to just write [​IMG]

    Sometimes I click if I add a tag into some existing text (if I can't use Ctrl+(letter), though that only works in full reply). Even in existing text I often just types the codes on either side. Usually I type out the codes from memory anyway though.

    I have to do the same with HTML as there are no buttons for that. [​IMG]

    I usually type everything out. I know all BBcodes out out my head *cough* (I typed all that in Notepad [​IMG])

    Of course I'm not including Quotes.
