"Cool" Smiley Interfering With Normal Speech
« on: 29 July 2023, 17:45:03 »
Any instance of "cool" renders as cool unless you put an empty tag or something in the middle. It's pretty inconvenient when trying to actually write coherently. Would definitely rather not have any common-word smileys.

It's not the only one, either.

And it's not just being inserted into new posts... I was checking a thread from 2017 and the forum's emoji parser is inserting emojis into every post when it's provided to the web browser.
Some places remain unknown because no one has gone there.  Others remain unknown because no one has come back.

In that case, I'm pretty sure this issue is one of the ones above fixing "pretty links"...

There was a formatting issue with the smiley set. It should be fixed now. cool or Cool shouldn't bring on the sunglasses.

Look, dude, when you are a real mechwarrior you don't need to get all dressed up in cooling suits and cool helmets to work on your mech. You just strip down to your 1980s panties and crop top vest and start wrenchin' it.

The old smilies are still gone, so I assume they're not coming back, then?

Hooray!  I'll continue using the old text conversions for the time being, in hopes the originals will come back! :)
