    curious, give me a mo, may have messed something up when I added the hug...
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Ah it's because it's all you've posted in a reply

    :D
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Because the way we handle people POSTING ALL IN CAPS is to make everything lower case it turns : D into :d (the colon isn't counted as lower case as you press shift to hit it)

    So just throw a . in the reply maybe? Or maybe go advanced, I'll see if that works...
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    :d .

    nope, just a period doesn't work
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Hmm, how frustrating - I'll have a think about it, but at least I get what's causing the problem now :D
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I thought that might be the reason...
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    :D;) Ahh that explains it.

    I vaguely remember a five character rule for that smiley. So you could post :D:D:D but not just :D.

    :d:d:d
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Nope
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Can't the smiley be added again, with a lowercase code as well?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Good thinking Batman... I just got to figure out how to avoid it appearing twice in the smilie list and check that :d wouldn't cause problems if replace, not that I can think of any reason it would right now.

    I'll get on it in the morning.

    :d

    Okay dokey - it's working now - means the :d or the :D - you guess which way round they are ;) - smilie now appears twice in the advanced post setting but that seemed to best solution, especially since I can't hide alternate categories... erm... maybe too much info there, anyway - it works :)
