How to add some color to your posts and annoy a bunch of other DUers at the same time!

[font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal][font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]Welcome Noobies!

I am Lost, and today I am going to teach all of you how to add some color to your posts and annoy some other DUers at the same time!

In General what you need to do is put these tags in front of the parts of your post you want to color[/font][/font]

[div class="excerpt" style="margin-left:1em; border:1px solid #bfbfbf; border-radius:0.4615em; box-shadow:3px 3px 3px #999999;"][font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal][b][font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]YOUR MESSAGE HERE [/font][/b][/font]



[font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal][font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]The font-family part tells your computer what font family to use. In my case Georgia. If the computer reading your script does not support that script it will display[/font] [font face='Brush Script MT' size=5 color=black][font face='Brush Script MT' size=5]Brush Script MT[/font] [/font][font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]in teal, and if not that the oh so hated [/font][font face='comic sans MS' size=4 color=black][font face='comic sans MS' size=4 color=black]comic sans MS [/font][/font] [font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]font. If none of those work it will then use whatever fantasy font family your computer does support.

The size tells it what size to use and color what color to make the font. You can change[/font] [font style="font-family:'Brush Script MT','Lucida handwriting','forte',cursive;" size=5 color=crimson][font style="font-family:'Brush Script MT','Lucida handwriting','forte',cursive;" size=5 color=crimson]fonts[/font][/font][font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]multiple times within each other.

If you want to be lazy you could use [/font][font size=5 color=scarlet face='Brush Script MT'][font face='Brush Script MT' size=5 color=scarlet]this[/font][/font] [font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]instead but the font might not be supported by their computer and will default back to the normal script

I highly suggest if you use a font with spaces in it like [/font][font color=scarlet size=4 face=comic sans ms][font color=scarlet size=4 face=comic sans ms] Comic Sans MS [/font][/font] [font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]you put apostrophes before and after like this [/font][font size=4 color=scarlet face='comic sans ms'][font size=4 color=scarlet face='comic sans ms']'Comic Sans MS'[/font][/font]

[font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]I also suggest reading these links for more information:[/font][/font]

[font style="font-family:georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal][font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal] If done right this should give a little color to your posts and annoy some other DUers at the same time! I hope this [/font][font style="font-family:'Brush Script MT','Lucida handwriting MT','forte',cursive;" size=5 color=crimson][font style="font-family:'Brush Script MT','Lucida handwriting MT','forte',cursive;" size=5 color=crimson]helped!!![/font][/font][/font] [/font]

Edit:[font style="font-family:georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal] [font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]Yes, I know I used two of the most hated fonts on the internet. But I like them!!![/font][/font]

PS: [font style="font-family:georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal][font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal] For anyone interested in trying this; just copying my post below the quote and pasting it into a reply and previewing it to see how it looks on your screen[/font][/font]

When discussing the future of newspapers, we have a tendency to focus only on the publishing side. We talk about the changes in formats, the new reader behaviors, the platforms, the devices, and the strange new world of distributed digital distribution, which are not just forcing us to do things in new ways, but also atomizes the very core of the newspaper.

But while the publishing side of things is undergoing tremendous changes, so is the journalistic and editorial side. The old concept of creating a package of news was designed for a public that we assumed was uninformed by default, but this is no longer the case.

The public is no longer uninformed. They are misinformed, and that requires an entirely different editorial focus. When writing for the uninformed, your focus is to report the news, which is what every newspaper is doing today. But when focusing on the misinformed, just reporting the news doesn't actually solve the public's needs. Now your focus must be on explaining the news instead.

So, in this article, we will talk about the rise of the misinformed using some really interesting data, as well as the threat to freedom of the press. And we will talk about how these two things are directly impacting your ability to succeed as a news company.
