Emoticon Limit

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Gah! When quoting a post with the maximum number of smilies I can't use smiles in my post without editing the emoticons out of the quote...



Fawking UBB!

Will there be no such idiotic limit when we move to vBB? Or maybe smarter code?

Idiotic limit? You get eight already!

Users don't need more than 8 smilies per post.

BTW I am going to see David Pogue giving a talk to a MUG tonight. Should I get his autograph? Or would that be considered "Not Cool"? Please advise.

Well if you're quoting a post that has a lot of them and then you post with one or two...

If the post you're quoting is THAT long, that it has six or more smilies already, you probably need to edit it down.

Ay ay ay.

It's only because you are loved (or something like that )

But, you never answered my qyestion in another thread
Is your name pronounced E-Man or Em-Ann? :confused:

Not that it really matters, just don't want to mispronounce your name, should I ever run into you. What a bad first impression that would make! <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />

yeah.

(damn emoticon limit! it cut out half of them. #%$^@^^#^%&!&@%!&^%&%@ UBB! )

Which brings me to my second bitch, even after it says you can't post and you go back and fix it real quick, you still get blocked by flood control.

Gah!!

Just say it with me,

Daaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I can't take it any more! - bang - thump -
