Off Topic Tag V1.0

I don' know if this is the same thing that bluegerman meant by an Off Topic Tag or not, but I've seen this sort of thing being used in other places, so I thought I'd do one anyway...

Description:
This MOD will add an Off Topic BBCode to YaBB

Thanks ccar! Just been enjoying messing about really. I've done another couple of BBCodes (a download tag and Google search) that I'll put up soon, but I'm going to update the Mood Mod a bit first.

I think I've done the languages wrong in that .zip file... I translated that on Google which said...

Off Topic Comment:

Off Topic Comment - Dutch (same)
Off Topic Kommentar _ German

But I've just looked somewhere else and it says:

van onderwerpcommentaar - Dutch
weg von der Themaanmerkung - German

Does anybody know if any of them are correct?

Off Topic is a commonly used word in German-speaking forums. So it is correct if you write:

Quote:
Off Topic Kommentar

Right, I've done that... If you've already got the Spoiler Tag installed, you just need to install one of the patches... I've updated the .zip package in the first post.

It will tidy the input and textarea fields up a bit too...
