  1. Could the automated parser that looks for (that was a : followed by a capital D )and the like be tweaked to spot it is appropriate only if there is leading whitespace?
    Trying to post <TL : DR> without spaces foists an unwanted smiley on the poor reader.

    Ok. But do explain what <TL : DR> is meant to mean. Forums rarely interpret html tags unless they are specifically provided for.

    TL, DR is a common expression on web forums, it means "too long, didn't read". Just dont't use the colon. Easy.

  7. I've always taken tl:dr to mean too long didn't read. And that sums up much web usage, if one takes a cynical standpoint.

    But please do not take one example of pseudo-markup language and claim an exception; this happens with colons all over this site. I usually need to remove at least one in any long comments I may make.

    SEMI-O.T.: While all computers in the world aren't allowed to get rid of the limitations from the 7-bit Era,
    we already can replace most emoticons or smileys with an emoji.

    😁

    P.S.: Probably this thread should be moved to the "Feedback" section...

    P.P.S.: This forumware still has a problem with emojis when one edits a post. :ó/

    Put it where you like - nothing alters the message. But if I were paying a monthly subscription to vBulletin, I'd be asking the question as to when it might get fixed.

    Moving to feedback.

    This is a very very very very very very very old vbulletin version. I don't think I will update it. But I can try fix it myself. In 0-10 years.
