I can't figure out how to disable emoticons in either my posts or my private messages. Is it even possible?

 

e.g.

A)

--> B.)

C)

 

or

 

You can download file " Essence" --> "X.D Essence"

To prevent the first example, just use the capital (or lower case) and the period and avoid the parentheses.

As for the second, try separating with a space. I don't know any other way to prevent it, though.

The keyboard text assignments to each emoticon would have to be removed in order to easily prevent this from happening. That way the only way to insert an emoticon would be by selecting it via the dropdown listing.

Yes, there are workarounds and they do the job (most of the time anyway), but it's not really what I'm looking for.

X.D / X D / XD_ / XÐ / χD

What I was hoping for is that I had missed a check box somewhere or an account/profile option that allowed OP to disable emoticons for a thread.


Would something like [noparse] be useful for this sort of problem? Could it be added to the Code Block?

 

Just some more examples using X D (Code Block xml, Code Block html, and Link):

Code: xml

Code: html

I'd be happy if they'd just fix or remove this one.

I think we need more emotes... for instances where there isn't one already.  Like: hands in the air for when nobody's listening, etc; a devil one showing anger instead of a smile; a WTF smiley for when ya just don't know.....

.... and a little nudie me so I can sign off with it.

If they do that, I think we'd all sign off.

Quoting ElanaAhova,

 Yup, that too.... and maybe a Muttley one as well.... as in Dastardly & Muttley.

Quoting RedneckDude,


Quoting starkers, reply 9.... and a little nudie me so I can sign off with it.

No, no, nothing too rude or explicit... something pink [rather than yellow] that just shows a bit of bum crack would suffice.

Starkers, this is off topic, so all forgive me, but are you doing anything special now that the "royals" are ...in Australia?

Well, put a pink hat on your current avatar and use it then....

Can't speak for anyone else, but nope... they're people just like you and I, so it's business as usual.

You are getting very, very close to me unzipping a special emote to serve as payback for that snide and uncalled for comment... and something tells me that Shaun the Sheep will be jealous, while Samantha Sheep will be quivering in her fleece.

Yes... if and when you're around.  Where have you been FL?  And don't tell me 'busy chasing ladies'.  That'd only take 10 - 20 minutes a week cos you'd run out of steam and have to rest up for the rest of the week... meaning you DO have more time to be useful here.

Seriously, it is long time no see, so it is good to see you again.

Quoting Uvah,

Lurking :/

You're gonna get yourself arrested for loitering if you aren't careful...and I can't come bail you out cos they're likely to throw me in the same cell beside you.

Orright people, move along, nothing to see here... just an old jailbird trying to pick the lock to get out and go home.... move along people, move along.... give the old jailbird a bit of privacy.
