i visit the fora often via the web interface to do such things as
check another members profile (for example: to try to gage
linux/openSUSE experience prior to answering) but i’ve very seldom
read any of my own post while on the http side…
In case you thought this is only happening to NNTP users, it is not.
I always (well, I forget sometimes) check by using Preview, first because I see a lot of my typos better when the post is show as it wll be on the thread and second to see if any of those smileys turn up unasked for.
It is specialy annoying when you have code, but can easily be avoided there by using CODE tags (which I encourage anyway for better readability).
I think I get it now. This is about text, not realy computer input/output as we mean for openSUSE, but nevertheless to be used in a computer (this case Google input field) environment. Yes that goes smiley (but not inside the CODE). It looks different. And when advising his to someone the effect is completely gone when there is no CODE.
BTW about your coffee hint, I am going to make tea and hope that helps also.

hmmmmm, i must be blind…i’ve been though (i think) every possible
place to set my options in “User Control Panel” > “Settings and
Options” or > “Miscellaneous” and can not find the switch to “Disable
smiles in text” would take my hand and lead blind me to that place,
hmmm…where does one go (in the web interface) to find this “Additional Options” box?
and, i’m replying now and see no controls to turn off smiles…
hmmm…i wonder if a person is required to select something other than “openSUSE Default” and “Quick Reply” and “Basic Editor” to find or use Additional Options to turn off the fluff which gets in the way of straight forward communications like site:openSUSE ??
When I click the Response button, I get a new page, whicj basicaly consists of two parts. The upper part contains a Title field (allready filled in with Re: …) and the field where you type your response. there are afew more small thingys there.
Below it is a part called Additional Options. It contains four rectangles of which the upper has four items. The fourth is:Disable smileys in text.

yes i’m using default…
oh wow! i wonder why there is a “Reply” button directly in the box
containing your (and all) posts, and another button completely
removed from any post, and marked “Post Reply” [heh, i guess that
answers my long unasked question here of how http users managed to
nearly consistently reply to me but the reply fall under some other
post in my threaded view–they you pushing “Post Reply”]
> if $user = DenverD ]]
yep…happens all the time…
but, i selected to use the “basic editor” maybe that is the difference…
i just couldn’t see the need to have a full html editor just to write words that are easily highlighted for EMPHASIS without buttons to
push to underline, bold, color, enlarge, blink, shimmy, shake, dance
or whatever /is/ available to the hip crowd…
I do not know exactly what to expect from a basic editor, but I agree that when it does not support special formatting bells and whistles, it should also not support iconising to smileys out of itself.
