Forum Formatting Commands

Hey! I need some serious help with the formatting of my WIP post. I’ve tried both HTML <> and the non HTML [ ] and some work in some parts of the post and some work in others, and lists don’t work at ALL. I Really, REALLY need help.

This is the code for the page, and the link to the page is HERE

I've begun work on my new game **_Phoenix Rising_**. In it, you play a servant of the Imperial Palace trying to survive the twisty turny harem intrigue. If you can last to your 25th birthday, you'll be free of service, and can leave the palace to live a better life outside. But will you find love within the Palace walls? Or will you climb into your Master's Bed in order to earn yourself a place among the fluttering fairies of the Imperial Harem?

- **Male route says "Eunuch"! Is our character snipped?** NO. It is simply that I needed a male specific, historically accurate term, and I was using Servant for the nonbinary route. Thanks to the magic of the Seal of Purity, none of the servants genitals have been altered in any way, and they CAN in fact have sexual relations. That said, if they're caught it's thought of as going AGAINST the spirit of the Seal of Purity, and so they can and will be punished. Hence why this is low-fantasy. 
- Are you going to put in save slots? - As I intend to put this game up on Hosted Games eventually, I'm not sure I want to implement such things. Not only that, I've tried to do that, and I wasn't able to get it up and running. It errored out the entire game. So I think it's better at this point not to. </details>

* If you are submitting errors (particularly code-related ones), it would be really helpful if you could provide a screenshot to go with it. That’ll really streamline my troubleshooting process. (ctrl+windows+s screenshots on windows computers)

<big>((Please forgive the wonky formatting on this post. I've tried to edit it a ton of times, and it won't fix the lists or the bolding or anything, including linking properly. I'm working with mods to try and get it fixed, but uh... It's as good as it gets right now. Anyone who wishes to help with the formatting is more than welcome to, so long as they DO NOT delete or remove any of the text.))</big>```
