ALL Chatrocode tags MUST be closed off with a corresponding tag otherwise they will only print as regular text in the room. Each example below shows an opening and closing tag for reference.

The only exception is the Message Prefix box for members where Chatrocode tags may be left open in order to stylize the message text (such as coloring or decorating message text).
