Scanning Will Be My Demise

Wow, I have been scanning pages so quickly that I totally missed this forum. I saw board and business and missed the big word "question" in the middle. Okay, I'm copying my questions from the Intro section to here, and I might do a little editing. Blah.

First post:
I am new to this site but not completely new to computers. This site has an infinite amount of links in which to get lost, but I'm not complaining about that. I would simply like to know to what page I go in order to turn on the HTML. I have seen the BB codes but I prefer HTML.

Furthermore, I tried to post this with the heading HTML vs BB but the crazy amount of saved threads followed by the crazy expectation that a person is going to read all those threads prevented me from posting. I received the message that the thread already existed. Hmmm, well perhaps it should be an faq listing. BB codes are listed but not HTML, or at least not that I have seen yet.

I am rather inclined to like this site, thus I will continue to try and find my way around, but some things take precedence over others in making oneself feel at home. What say ye, oh overlords of the grand and irresistable ATS site? I would also appreciate some yay or nay opinions from the newbies. :bnghd:

Second post:
Doh, I am going to have to submit to reading tons of
newbie posts I guess, for I have yet another question, and I'm off to do that as soon as I post this question. Can anyone tell me if access to Collaborative Fiction is granted via purchase of the secret forum access in the ATS store?

As for posting in HTML, I don't think you can. It is a question that has come up a few times and the answer was always "no." I searched and come up with this Link.

Thanks. That's really helpful, though it seems a bit strange that it's placed in the post reply page as if it's an option. Hmm.

Its an option. Its just been turned off.

Okie dokie then,

Back to the original question. How does one turn it on? Heh, you answer questions like my boyfriend.

i dont think you can get html on here, you can only turn bb code off in a post i think lol.

maybe some1 could clarify better, look at the link spectre provided

Yeah, I looked at the link and saw a mod or two that said they can't be turned on. Then I got a u2u saying that they were turned off by a mod as a precautionary measure or something of that nature. BB code it is.
