The 8) smiley face
 
I'm sure many of you weren't around at this time, but it used to be when you put "???" it turned out to be this smiley face: :???:. Now it's when you put :???*: without the *, you get that face.

Well, since that was changed I hope this is able to be changed...

When ever you put 8*) without the *, you get 8). That's a little inconvenient. So like, whenever you put an 8 in parenthesis you get that face instead of what you want to type. Just recently I joined the Dog Owners Club and said
Casey, (who is now 8*)...
And it turned 8*) into that smiley face. It can get a little annoying.

With all respect to WI, I'm suggesting we change the code for 8) to maybe :8 ): or something like that :).

I know it is obnoxious, it happens to me a lot ::) Anyways, I have a feeling he (Justin) won't change it, because of some sort of incident that happened a year or something ago.

(It involved xD and :D)

Anyways, glad you brought this up :)

This is a test. I know we have the "Disable Smilies in Text" option, and I want to see if it works:

:) 8) :???:


EDIT:
It did work. =) All you have to do is, before you click "submit" in the Go Advanced post, is click the "Disable smilies in text" option.

Mm-hmm, I was around when just typing ??? made the :???: face... LOL, it was funny when text-talkers asked questions back then. It looked like:

heeeey wat is dis ting:???::???::???::???::???:??

:2funny:

But yeah, I agree about the 8) smiley thing, though usually I will just do:

8:

Or:

8 )

And it looks just fine. :)

You don't necessarily need the actual image, though.
Inserting "=)" gives the same effect.

It would also be a sacrifice you would have to be willing to make. If you knew you wanted an actual smilie in your post, you wouldn't use the option. You'd make do with using the short cuts like spacing or adding symbols in.

Either space it out like 8 ) or put a period 8.) or bold 8 or the ) 8) 8) OR just disable the smilies ;)

Re: The 8) smiley face
 
Hm, I didn't know bolding would do that, Baby_G. Thanks :).

And yes, I know you can do that, Lake, though it just takes a little more time and sometimes, like 000000005 said, you want some of the smilies to show up.
