    BBCode
    First of all, let's start with some FAQ.
    What is BBCode?
    Wikipedia wrote:BBCode or Bulletin Board Code is a lightweight markup language used to format posts in many message boards. The available tags are usually indicated by square brackets ([ ]) surrounding a keyword, and they are parsed by the message board system before being translated into a markup language that web browsers understand—usually HTML or XHTML.
    Well, what does THAT mean? Basically, it modifies your text to be colors, to be positioned in the center, to be bolded, to be underlined, and much more. For a complete guide to BBCode, visit this link.

    Now that you have a basic understanding of BBCode, how can I make cool colored text? You can use the codes on a BBCode Color Chart, or use a text gradient generator. The one that I use can be found here. This generator creates one-way text, back and forth text, and rainbow text.

    CoolText
    CoolText is a website that creates cool text pictures. Example:

    CoolText pictures create awesome biography headers and titles.

    References
    Do not use cartoon/anime wolf references. Most are very unrealistic and have almost no wolflike characteristics. Please use references of real wolves.

    Descriptions
    Descriptions of your wolf are very important. They describe your whole wolf's appearance and personality. Please do not make a five word description, example:
    She has a black coat.
    Not only does this make people bored, but it may make people assume you are very young. A better example would be:
    Description by Soran, wrote:The quiet fae had a rich raven pelt, full of ebony pigments. Dark charcoal colors litter the base pelt, often peeking through her top layer. Lighter greys are concentrated on her muzzle and on her underside, creating a subtle highlighting, making her physique look slim.
    That might be a little too descriptive for beginners, but you get the idea.

    Grammar
    Please, please, please, use correct grammar in your biography. Simple things, like capitalizing every "I", can make a huge difference in the appearance of your biography.
