    Hello Jameson and Ackbach,

    I would suggest that the code for the throbbing heart which is (h) be changed to since I have noticed functions are stated in terms of $h$ often enough that this causes posts for people who do not know to disable the smilies to have an unintended heart display. This way users can have $f(h)$ and smilies in the same post.

    Best Regards,

    Mark.

    Fair enough. It's changed now I hope this doesn't affect too many posts.

    I wondered about that, but I don't think it is a very often used emoticon.

    If it messes up too many posts, I will take full blame!

    How about (f). Perhaps it can be changed from ( f ) to ?

    Good call...I only wish I had thought of that one so Jameson could have gotten both while he was in the ACP...

    How about we use colons instead of brackets for emoticons, sidestepping the issue entirely? (f) may be colon, but :f: isn't.


    EDIT: common*

    I know of at least one post (by me) that gets fixed (instead of getting messed up).
    I was in a hurry when I made the post and was stuck on how to fix the flower.
    When I wanted to fix it later, I could not edit it anymore.

    Let's avoid one-character emoticons whatever the surrounding interpunction.

    I don't know if this mass change is something I want to take on right now but agree it would be more logical and might be something to do in the future. The tricky part would be converting all of the old smilies to the new syntax.

    Good idea. I also took care of the flower smiley and it seems that no more smilies are denoted by just one character inside of parentheses.
