Patrick,

Can we have either an option to not show smilies AT ALL (the User control option still shows the bbcode)

Or stick smilies in a box and VFX blow them to smithereens?

I think they cheapen the forum a bit and also make reading posts either difficult or impossible to read.

Please, Please stop them from ever being used.

I may be alone here...

You may be alone or not, but I do know that some people like smileys... The amount of smilies per post are limited.

Hi Dan,

IMHO smileys are not the problem, it's more a question of how people use them sometimes. You know, we can't be limiting everything for everyone just because of a few ones... it's like writing full caps, people have to learn to post correctly ;)

Cheers,

Hmmm... well, point made, It was suppose to be limited, not sure what happened, but I've re-setup the limit on the smilies. Maximum of 5 allowed.

:D :) ;) :( :o
