I just noticed when I go in non text edit and do something like *:*smoker:*) (with no * of course!) it shows up fine in the preview, but then when I post it goes :smoker:) of course....

Hope that is clear, anything to be done?

The preview is a complicated beast as it often will try to parse code as you type it etc. etc. I won't even try to work out how they do it :D

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
