Ok, people have suggested this for quite a while... This is just a simple post of what I've found to be passed along the forums during my time here. If there's anything you'd like to add, just send me a PM. Basic Text Card Format: Everyone has there own basic card format, usually based off a previous member, that is used in their cards. I'll just keep this short, but there are several parts common in a post. I'll just post an Example to make things clear... In Text based faking there are some generally accepted symbols for card creation to avoid over-use of the Energy Symbol smilies. [R] = Fire, as F belongs to Fighting and R can also mean Red. [W] = Water, as Water begins with W [L] = Electric, because in the TCG it's referred to as Lightning [P] = Psychic, because Psychic starts with P [C] = Colorless, because Colorless starts with C [G] = Grass, because Grass starts with G [M] = Steel, because in the TCG it's referred to as Metal [D] = Darkness, because Dark begins with D [.] or [#] = Energy-less, because it happens to be the most popular options. [.] was used in PokeBeach scantilations, and [#] is the symbol used by the online program Redshark.
