Example: /me is spotting with a bonus of 2 @{Charname|spotcheck} + 2  I just can't get it to work... @{char|spotcheck} runs the @{char|spotcheck} macro just fine and returns the calculated value @{char|spotcheck}+2 ignores the +2 and just runs the @{char|spotcheck} If I enter [[@{char|spotcheck}+2]] nothing happens — the entry disappears Same goes for each with the % instead of @.
