Howcome there's a limit on the number of smilie/frownie faces that you can put in an individual post (not complaining..I would abuse it sometimes...so it's a good thing)...but you can view more than that limit on the posts when you scroll thru them all?

What I mean is this (4AM thinking here) ..if I am limited to four stupid face-thingy's, then how/why can the whole page actually show four from my post, four from the preceeding and four from the next post all at the same time.

That's a total of .......(let me count fingers and toes here..I am base10) ....12 stupid faces...right?

What's the limiting factor..rendering? Bandwidth? Arbitrary rule?

Rule built into the vBulletin software. you would think they could not apply the rule to quotes, its really annoying..

And... on that note, (at 1am) im off to bed.

P.S bet you wernt expecting a reply that quick :p

Yeah...but!

I wanna see you put more than 4 in the actual body of your post..go on..just try to!

note: I tried to put 4, then 2 and now NO groan-ies right here..because it wouldn't work!

I tried 4 groan-ies...and got this message:

1. You have included 9 images in your message. You are limited to using 5 images so please go back and correct the problem and then continue again.

Images include use of smilies, the vB code [img] tag and HTML <img> tags. The use of these is all subject to them being enabled by the administrator.

Then...I got rid of two groan-ies and got this:

You have included 6 images in your message. You are limited to using 5 images so please go back and correct the problem and then continue again.

Images include use of smilies, the vB code [img] tag and HTML <img> tags. The use of these is all subject to them being enabled by the administrator.

So..you can see that the original smug-face-thingy's are additive in nature and the ones you quote also count against you....see?

Just delete the smilies from the quoted text if they are going to put you over your quota.

5 + 4 = 9...OK so far

Now, take two away and get this:

9 - 2 = 6 OH Yeah ?!?!?

I take all my stupid faces out (another two!) and I get an OK for the count.......Figger THAT out!!!
