bigfilsing,

I wish we could! Unfortunately hyperlinks don't function too well with smilies in the middle of them. :P

Even as a quote.

It's because theres a ":" followed by a "D" and the forum software sees it as a smiley!

bigfilsing,

I forgot about it last evening but just remembered after seeing your latest post. I just went into your original post and selected the "Disable smilies in this post" tick box at the bottom of the create message page. Voila!

Pretty crappy thing to do to the maid I have to say!

:wink:
