    Please,please,please can we have automatically disabled smilies within code tags.

    Please. They are so irritating especially when you cut and paste from someone who forgot to disable smilies!

    This sounds like a well-thought out, implementable idea. Better yet, it makes sense.

    I agree. I know there is an option for people to disable smilies, but some people forget.

    I always thought that the little smilies in my classes took them to a higher level of 'coolness'.[/sarcasm]

    I voted for "Automatic Disabled", but it's not very necessary, because you can just disable them yourself( unless you are lazy ).
    none...

    I didnt know this option existed, though have faced problem while posting code like 'for ( ;; )'.
    I this by default it should be disable, the code should be more readable.

    I could've sworn this has been brought up before, oh well; it's just a little edit in the VB code somewhere. Now if only webmaster could find a coder

    Yeah, it has been brought up before. But obviously nothing happened last time, and this really is a good idea, so here we go again

    Code might be funny with smilies in it but readability pays for it.

    true, true!!!

    it's ten to one the most iritating thing in the world!!!!

    here you are...trying the help the poor oak...but wait a minute...he's making more work for you.....you have to take out the smilies first. and this like in totaly takes out the functionality of code tags

    >>scanf( );

    Edit: The intended meaning of the original text that got replaced by smilies should be obvious to anyone with half a clue anyway. If you make the effort to open your favourite text editor/IDE, copy & paste that stuff, compile and probably debug it, then you might as well type in a few missing parenthesis .

    Wooot , would be a great thing for a contest.
    Make a code with some functionality (of course :d) AND make sure that you have at least 1 smilie in 3 lines of code.
    (minimum code length:100 lines)
    Of course you would get +points if you manage to get more smilies on one line (and the code still remains functional).

    I don't think it's an option. See Read here.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    You could always send the suggestion on to vbulletin and when you next upgrade the board maybe they will have disallowed smilies within codetags. code tags are for code and code never needs smilies. It makes sense to disable them between code tags and if a "hack" cant do it then the board manufacturers certainly could and probably should. They will act if enough people complain. Otherwise they will probably ignore it.
