    This bulletin board is equipped with a feature which enables you to post player stats, and boxscores.

    Depending on the source where you copy your numbers from, this can be easy or hard. Sometimes when copied and pasted, they will show as vertical. This is because of the site you took the numbers from. A great example of a good site to take numbers from is http://www.nytimes.com, because their stats are plain numbers, with no formatting.

    Take this page for example: http://www.sportsnetwork.com/default...INDSTAT036.htm

    When copied and pasted here, they look like this:

    As opposed to a page like this: http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/teamstats?team=nyy

    Because they are formatted on the page with fancy and colors and whatnot. When copied and pasted here, they would appear vertically.

    The way to get around this is typing the numbers manually.

    Say I wanted to give stats for a player. Without formatting, it would look like this

    stat name stat name stat name
    1 2 3

    With "stats" formatting, the same thing looks like this:

    Stats:

    stat name stat name stat name
    1 2 3



    It's important to remember that the "stats" code preserves all spacing, so how you type it is how it will appear on the page. I hope this helps, and feel free to test this all you want in this thread.
