Hey! You having issues with this pasting into a jumbled mess? The fix is simple.... when writing a post, click the wrench in the upper right corner. This will change the editor to raw text mode. Past it in there, and watch as everything lays out correctly. Then, if you prefer the WYSIWYG editor, just click the button on the bottom left opposite of the post button!

We already have an unofficial standard form, it seems... But this, I like this!
Go right ahead and use it if you want to :D

This could definitely be an option for people. I, personally, wouldn't really do it because it would take a loooot of time to update, fill out, and the vast amount of options would make me brainstorm for more options to add on and it would get all cluttered.

I would ask @SallyPirate in regards to having it stickied. I think the multiple character sheets are a great idea. Some can do the lighter ones and others a more in depth one like the one posted here.

Hue. I've somehow sneaked in most of the additional stuff somewhere on m'profiles anyway, and that which I haven't I have no intentions of divulging~!
