OK, so I'm bored.

Never played with this "feature," but *** :confused: ... would somebody actually go through the "trouble" of placing smilies in their post & then disable them? or, maybe it's more like lockin' the liquor cabinet so you don't get tempted ...

Should it really be " ... in this thread" so you don't have to look at smilies everybody else posted?

BTW, ignore any smilies that show up here. I'm gonna risk everything, use up my smilie-limit & then disable 'em.

Mods, feel free to move this over to software/test area ... :D

:cool:

OK, so that's what it does.

Again, what's the point? One of those built-in things ... ? :cool:

It is just a built in feature. Pretty useless if you ask me.

It could come in handy if you needed to place some symbols together that happened to create a smile. Not a biggie for general firearms discussion, but I imagine that there are boards using this software that cater to things like programming where you might wind up posting some code that would otherwise be a smiley. :D

I've seen posts that have a smilie right in the middle of a URL. Quite inconvenient to have to decipher.

:o or :p or :( could also appear in a post and unintentionally turn into a smilie.
