# [SOLVED]Suggestion regarding one of the BBCodes (the throbbing heart)

Hello Jameson and Ackbach,

I would suggest that the code for the throbbing heart which is (h) be changed to (heart) 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. (heart)

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 (flower)?

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

While we're at it, there's one more: (d)

( d ) changed to (drink)?

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

EDIT: common* (heart)

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.
