Level 35 Hacker

Herbaceous, biennial, dicotyledonous , and flowering.

When you have a single left facing parenthesis [)] after a quotation mark [“] or an apostrophe [‘], it will post in a winking smiley face [like “Log in to see images!] in place of the parenthesis. Go ahead and try it.

Why? Does this make sense for any reason? Is it a bug? Can we fix it somehow?

It’s possible to still include quotes in parenthetical asides by putting an extra space between the ” and the ) e.g. (as the idiom goes: “there’s more than one way to skin a cat.” ), but that’s weird, nonstandard, and aggravating.

Could we maybe get a “do not display graphical smilies in this post” box to check, or something?

Trying to create drama to drum up the ratings by any means necessary!

This drives Falcon4 nuts, too.

It’s not a bug, it’s the way bbcode works. And it’s easy to work around the way you say. And to avoid accidents, use the preview function.

But I do sign “disable smilies” as a checkbox option. It’s pretty standard on other boards I’ve been on.
