  • Also, don't use tags that have nothing to do with your question. Feb 18, 2014 at 14:57

  • The idea is that you should participate in the main site first before using meta. You get reputation by posting useful questions and answers that people vote up. Also, the tags in the tags box were as examples only. I'd suggest that you spend some time looking at the existing questions on the site to get a sense of how it works, then it will be easier to see what makes good questions and answers. In the meantime, perhaps a moderator can migrate your question to meta. Feb 18, 2014 at 15:11

  • I don't know. Comments are not a good place to ask new questions, either. Feb 18, 2014 at 15:21

You can control the size of spaces by adding non-breakable spaces into your text with the html symbol  .

This would create a                      space like the one in this line.

You can add a line break
by putting "two spaces" at the end of the line
which will allow you continue writing in the next line.

You can also add new paragraphs by

inserting the html code <p> ... </p>.

  • but.. how do i put in Tall space ?
