Default Preventing Smilies from Converting to Text

Smilies are great. However, sometimes when combined together a few will convert back to text. For example:
:laughing1 :

To cure this, simply insert a space between each smiley or add a space before the offending one:
Space between each smiley...
Space before sixth smiley...

Have fun!

Dan

Sheesh Dan, you want my address so you can send me some garlic?
Please don't encourage them. Gratuitous graphics are right up there
(along with my latest, Coriolis Force) on my pet peeve list.





Peter, notice I said Coriolis Force rather than Coriolis Effect.
I can co-exist with the Coriolis Effect. Don't have any choice...

Well Michael, you see, for those of us that have no writing skills and can only fake it, smileys are a necessary thing in life. So get over it.

The Australian forum has a ton of them, and I the headslap has come in handy more times that I should admit. I think we need more.
For my many mistakes:
For my NAINA
Just for you Michael
For MiterMaster
For Bob
Well just for
For Poto when he's picked on
Don't we all?
Nah, I've never been blindsided
I've been known to lob a grenade or two

The "late-night" tired
or the "early morning before my coffee" tired.

That's big of you, Michael. I came to terms with it a few years ago too. One of my other big ones is "red tide". Believe it or not, I'm one of the world's experts on these things. Shocking, I know. But they're typically not red, and usually have nothing to do with tides. But people know what you mean when you say it, and that's the more important thing for information transfer.

As for smilies, maybe you need to become an administrator so that you have the power to delete them! You can sneak in at night and slowly, one by one, make them go away. Perhaps nobody will ever notice. I doubt Fred reads his own posts. And he's dealing with so much stuff that he'd just think it's the meds!

Somehow Rick's post slipped in before I got mine done here. Is there something we could turn on to warn us that another post was made before ours appeared, so that we could edit it appropriately?

Rick - gotta say, I LOVE some of those smilies.

I'm not an Administrator so this isn't a definitive answer (and smilies are here to stay ),
but if you click Preview Post I think a new post will show up at the top of the list of previous posts.


Rick, gotta admit that's an impressive glossary! Kind of like Xmas in August.

Are those smilies available to the proletariat.
Is my tail really that long?

You can pretty much copy and paste smliies from anywhere.
I just copied this one from Rick's post.

In grade school I went surfing at Cocoa Beach (my dad helped design launch pads) and I remember the first time I was turned away from the beach because of "red tide". I wondered why they called it red, just a darkened patch of water. Is it really unsafe to be in the water during "red tide"?

High tide is best, low tide is muddy. (On the Sound) and when the oysters are messing around it's all foamy. What's red tide, that got something to do with Russians, da
