Today, I give you tables. A bbcode plugin that enables you to post tables when the need arises. I know this isn't the coolest or most exciting feature, but staff requested it. So, that means you guys get to play with it, too!
Disclaimer: As with any feature, do not abuse this. Play with it all you want in this thread but try not to make massive tables or anything like that or we'll have to implement restrictions that make this less fun Whatever rules the mods place on posting tables is up to them.
Here are the instructions from the plugin author. Have fun making sense of it. If this is tl;dr for you as it is for me, skip it and look below.

The whole option list should be wrapped with quotes.
Options are seperated by a semicolon
If an option has a value it is assigned with "equal to" mark. (option2)
If the value contains blanks or special characters it has to be wrapped with apostrophes. (option3)
If an option has more than one value they are seperated by a comma. (option4)
Description of options:
This option defines the first line as head, so the first row is shown as head of the table. If the table sould be sorted, the head is not sorted.
This defines the table to be sorted by column 1, then column 2, then column 3. The "d" after the first colum specifies the order: descending (default: ascending)
autonum=1 (equal to autonum) autonum=a autonum=A
Defines that a new first column containing a numbering should be inserted.
1 -> 1, 2, 3, 4, ... , 999, 1000, ....
a -> a, b, c, ... , aa, ab, ... , zz
A -> A, B, C, ... , AA, BB, ... , ZZ
autonumtitle=oneword autonumtitle='long value with spaces'
Defines the title of the autonum-column. Can be left empty.
width=123px width=45em width=67%
Defines the width of the table.
Most of the time, you won't even need to worry about that stuff. Here's a simple table that should work for most of what you'd want a table for.
though out of curiosity, can html be used in posts? I've noticed in the options "disable html" or something, though I don't know if I've ever seen anyone use it before (aside from Aniday last week, but he's a wizard )
