I said I would put this on the forums for everyone and no one, NO ONE!!!!, can say i'm a liar

BIG NOTE HERE: this isn't my template. someone I forget gave it to me.

Also FYI LONG runon sentences with no spaces or weblinks will break your bio when others read it.
If you put a link in your bio you don't need http. Put it on it's own line and press enter after the .com, trust me it will look readable and normal to others. you can see what others see by targeting yourself and typing /targetinfo

I have my ~ key bound with this ie /bind ~ targetinfo no more accidently dueling or friending people as they run by

I have been wondering about this for ages. Thank you! Also, that bind for targetinfo is pretty smart. I've been manually typing it each time. Dunno why I never thought of binding it...

How can you get the bottom TEXT HERE portion to be regular CO font? I don't understand why it defaults to that arial font. And I dont see any html <thingies> that are making it that way.

EDIT: After trial and error, I figured it out.

The editor defaults to MS Sans (I think that's the name of the font) and if you close a custom font with </font> and do an EXTRA </font>, it seems to close a hidden <font style=MS Sans> That the editor hides at the very top.

Weird.

But yes! Thanks for this template. With a few basic edits, I was able to create a really nice bio. ^_^

Can you show us how? :D

I'm an idiot and can't figure it out, and the other font it changes to I really really hate :(

Thanks, I forgot how the HTML coding worked (I did knew the basics.. at some point in the past.)


Used part of the PRIMUS Database info, brilliant idea.
Added a small part saying "Classification: ..." (As in Superhero, Villain, Citizen, Mutate, Mutant, etc.)

And will possibly add a short tag for the type of superpowers the character is registered under as well, seeing the lore states the PRIMUS database keeps track of the heroes and which powers they have. (As in Glacial, Parapath, Telepath, Special Ops, Illusionist, Pyromantic powers, etc.)

Thank you for this thread. Every time I get a question about my bio, I just send them here.

By the way, I have a slightly different take on the bio format. I figured I'd include it here for more options.

<font color="green">((Mature Role-Player))</font><br>
<br>
<b><font color="yellow">PERSONAL DATA</font></b><br>
<b><font color="cyan">Real Name:</font></b> TEXT HERE<br>
<b><font color="cyan">Species:</font></b> TEXT HERE<br>
<br>
<b><font color="yellow">ORIGIN</font></b><br>
TEXT HERE TEXT HERE TEXT HERE TEXT HERE TEXT HERE TEXT HERE <br>
<br>
<b><font color="yellow">POWERS & SKILLS</font></b><br>
<b><font color="magenta">POWER NAME:</font></b> TEXT HERE TEXT HERE TEXT HERE TEXT HERE <br>
<br>
<b><font color="magenta">POWER NAME:</font></b> TEXT HERE TEXT HERE TEXT HERE TEXT HERE <br>
<br>
<br><b><font color="yellow">WEAKNESSES</font></b><br>
<b><font color="orange">WEAKNESS NAME:</font></b> TEXT HERE TEXT HERE TEXT HERE TEXT HERE <br>
<br>
<b><font color="orange">WEAKNESS NAME:</font></b> TEXT HERE TEXT HERE TEXT HERE TEXT HERE

Is offering a profile in this fashion required to engage in community activities? I've never been a real big fan of revealing information in a profile that should be discovered through roleplay with the character.

I'm not sure if my character's the type to even register with any agency, in all honesty. The friction there would make for some interesting roleplay, but I don't see him as an anti-hero or anything like that.

I guess a good question then would be if anyone has some formatting for non conformists. :P

Nope! No such bio is required. Though I do find putting a character's age can be helpful for RP, particularly in the case of teen heroes who may appear a bit older (or younger) than they really are.

Not at all. Most people just love writing them up. I am in this camp for one. If you're not a fan of that kind of bio, the other preferred way is just to put down some notes about things that are different about your character from their physical appearance in game, if any (think tattoos or other things not currently possible in the creator) and things someone would notice about your character if they were paying attention.

Other things to note in your bio should be the kinds of RP you're open to (Walk-up, mature, light, etc.) and any other OOC notes people need to know before they RP with you.

As far as formatting goes, just look up some basic HTML commands and come up with something uniquely suited to your style. HTML isn't too complex as far as programming languages go.
