Make Your Own Timeline Image Creator (No More ASCII Timelines!)

I don't participate too much here yet, but I lurk just a little bit. Because, well, I do love a good timeline discussion. So as a result, I have decided to do you all a favor.

You know how so many of you are making these ASCII timelines... you know, the ones where you shift text over by a godforsaken number of periods just to get everything lined up? You know, like these?

Well, I can solve all of this so that you have beautiful looking timelines in next to no effort. Introducing the Make Your Own Timeline Image Creator.





How to Use It

Step 1: You use the new [timeline] BBCode:
Code:
[timeline]<your timeline code>[/timeline]

Step 2: Append the proper timeline code using the following rules:

Hyphen: Used to link games where there are no timeline branches.

Code:
SS-MC-PH-OoT 


Brackets: Surround a list of timeline branches.
Pipes: Separate timeline branches.

Code:
OoT[WW|MM|LttP]


That's All!

For the curious, the codes for the two timelines at the very top are:

Code:
SS-MC-FS-OoT[WW-PH-ST|MM-TP-FSA|LttP-OoS-OoA-LA-LoZ-AoL]

LoZ-AoL[LttP[LA|OoT-MM-OoS]|OoA-WW[FS[FSA|MC]]|TP[PH|ST-SS|?]]
