Default Re: The 8) smiley face

These are all GREAT suggestions! I, too, have been vexed by the smiley face when I intended to write the number eight in parentheses for my Gift Exchange. Now I know how to avoid it! Thanks to all who gave input on this thread!

In the gift exchange, the 8*) gets really annoying.
For example if i have 8 cookies and list them on my GE "cookies (8*)
it turns out as "cookies ("

And it turns out like this:

8)

thanks, that will be very helpful

:)
^ it works!

For your situation, why don't you just remove the parenthesis? You could even use brackets [ ] or | |?

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

When ever you put 8*) without the *, you get . 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 to maybe :8 ): or something like that .
Yes, for me as an RP owner, this is very troubling.
With my own username : Cheerleader98

When I put who owns the character, if the last item in the username is 8, and I do this () it'll look like this:

(Cheerleader9

When it's supposed to be:
(Cheerleader98 )

Great idea!!

It is pretty annoying like if you were saying:
"There are a lot (..." and you were trying to say (8 ) lik eight.

Default Re: The 8) smiley face

Yeah, I agree it does get annoying. Although, as other have said, you can add a space or you could add a bot. Like 8.

I agree with you on this. Even though there are ways to get around it turning into a smilie, it's easy to forget that 8) will turn into , and in my opinion, it'd be better to simply changed the code.

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.
Like Ratty pointed out, you don't have to disable all the smilies in a post. You can just put [noparse] tags around whatever you don't want to turn into a smilie.

Default Re: The 8) smiley face

Why don't you use these as paranthesis ... [ ]
Example: [1], [2], [3]
[8]
If you get into that habit you won't have to worry about the smiley
