I have no further plans for the quotes at the moment. And yes, a way to insert user names has been thought of, but it would most likely be problematic in terms of performance.

How often do people actually use those, though?

I don't recall seeing them used on the forums like ever.

Dude, we use them all the time!

But seriously, I agree, they're unnecessary. Also, maybe we could have a thing to insert some common HTML entities like &lt and &gt?
Using htmlentities() as a separate button is redundant when you could just implement the feature for text contained within code tags. Whatever code you have that needs to use entities would probably fit well between them as I can't think of anything else that would need it.

Regarding the emoticons, it would be nice to have some more serious ones. Futhermore ones that don't stretch the line height making your lines all weird. I'm all for the concept of them but when this: v:)v happens it irks me to the point I have to bypass the filter.

I seem to remember a good set of block emoticons by anonimato.

I recall Kieran once stating that the reason the [code] tags parse HTML is for purposes like highlighting. Personally, I've never seen this done, but Kieran may still want to retain this behavior. But yes, the most common use of them would be in [code] and <textarea> tags.

I'd totally be for these, or other MARIO related emoticons to be implimented instead of those nasty Kirby things we have right now.
I like those turn block emoticons! Simple, small, and more serious than the others!

Anywho, I just remembered something that bugs me:

Could we have a BBcode that "disables" BBcode?

I mean, when I first joined this site, I thought that the code BBcode disable BBcode in a post - like in most forums I've been too.

~

Maybe I should explain it more:

with the /code/ tags in other forums, you can use it to do this:

Code
[ b  ][ /b ]


Without the spaces, off course.

So basically you can post a BBcode template without having to manually put the spaces in; just add in the code tag.

Although, I don't know what to call it know since code is used differently...
Yeah the option to disable BB Code would be nice.

Also to make code boxes wrap properly and not have then show emoticons.

I can't even tell you how much I hate this guy:

Fixing problems like this would be useful as well:

Tag (b) was not closed.
Tag (a) was not closed.

And yeah, seconding the vote for applying white-space: pre-wrap; on code boxes. I already have it in my layout, and I've lost count on how many other posts I've pasted it into.

That's why never use the emoticons; I wanna say something serious, with serious fascination and/or implication, but with this guy: :O I feel like I'm showing childish mesmerization(?).

=O
When highlighting text and using a keyboard shortcut to stylise the selected text it would be nice if the cursor is moved after the closing BBCode tag rather than before it to save the hassle of having to click to continue typing.

I think the borders of the buttons are a bit too thick, too. They seem very ... dense. Other than that it's pretty awesome.
It's not supposed to move the cursor at all. The selected text should stay selected.
It woudl be nice if there were a BBCode to disable emoticons. [NE][/NE]. Not only would it help the music porting and ASM community in not having to upload a text file every time they want to show off parts of their songs/code (if you don't know, some porting and ASM code is parsed and translated as an emoticon), but not always seeing Gooeys and/or other emoticon images in a post would be nice.
Well, there's already :) (quote me).

Well, wouldn't the one I suggested (BBcode to disable BBcode) be similar?

Although...the disable BBcode thing does create a box...
Oh, the filter-noemote was implemented? Sweet~ :)

Does it need to directly surround the smiley, or can it be placed in a layout?

It'd be nice if we could have a clickable option for this still though. Not necessary, just nice.
Ah, so it was intentional. It seems more logical to me for it to move after the tag because text you highlight and stylise probably won't be edited further as making it bold, italic or whatnot is one of the last things you do to it. Having it all stay highlighted doesn't make much sense either as it's probable that the user doesn't want to change the highlighted text any further and simply wants to continue writing.

I can live with it like this though. It's only minor.

... it's been around for years. Of course, as I've probably mentioned before, there's the small problem that it isn't inherited.

:) :D 8>

Would there be any disadvantage in disabling emoticons in code tags by default?
