Troubleshooting: Regular expressions
With our next update, users will be able to use regular expressions to do text replacement. Here's some info I've found on the web about them, but I have to be honest, I don't entirely understand how to use them myself! Hopefully others on the forums who have more familiarity with the concept can help out those trying to use them.

Basically, regular expressions offer a more complex way of doing text replacement by searching for patterns rather than exact matches. Here’s a wikipedia article on it.

Here's a page allows you to diagram them.

You can also find a list of regular expression syntax on this page.

I play a good Equius and Caliborn, an okay Gamzee, Nepeta and Terezi, and a mediocre Dirk or Tavros. I will occasionally attempt a Vriska with mixed results. Equius is my main jam, though.

sober Gamzee x Equius, Dirk and/or AR x Equius

RE: Troubleshooting: Regular expressions
JavaScript regexp? I'm a little more familiar with Python's regexp though. I just hope there isn't much of a difference.

but why?
