Smilies discussion - Why do quotes count?

Hi Marko,
Just curious why when we quote another message in our reply that those smilies count towards our small :D limit of twelve smilies? It just seems so unfair :sad: :cry:.

:rolleyes: :D

hint, hint

I've been frustrated with the same thing :frustrated: .....especially with some of us smiley hogs. :D

Yeah :frustrated::rolleyes:, especially when multi-quoteing :D, one tends to collect quite a few from other posts, then I/we either end up having to :shrug: post multiple replys or :eek: *gasp* deleteing smilies http://foolstown.com/sm/obm.gif

I think we should be able to have 12 (or more ;)) of our own smilies in 1 post & not have the quoted ones counted :thumbs up


Self proclaimed smilie hog :D

Yes, this is a good example. :thumbs up

Since Smiley Hog Growler used up nine smileys now I'm only allowed three. :yell: :frustrated:

I am not sure its possible.. it may be hard-coded into the forum's software.

We'll have to wait & see.

No setting to disallow the counting of quoted smilies as far as i can tell.

So I just increased the limit to 18 per post instead of 12...but the quoting would still count toward the total of 18.

Hope that helps

is there a way when you quote to not include the other posters smilies??

meaning when you quote the smilies just not appear..just the text??

I think you would have to delete the other poster's smilies manually from your post.

Stacer is correct. This can easily be done manually....
