Sometimes, when I click "edit" on a PM, and the PM opens in the full editor, some parts of the text are missing. I've noticed that if there's a smiley in a line of text, everything between the first smiley and the line break will disappear. This only happens occasionally. Anyone else have this happen?

I've had this happen quite a few times.

Thankfully, it doesn't happen all the time. I usually have to hit "Back" or look at my reply in a new tab, copy what went missing after the smiley, and paste it in when I'm editing.

Hmm, I haven't had it happen to me yet as far as I remember. Although I don't use a lot of smileys in my PMs, so maybe that's why.
Both of you are using the Standard editor, it may be related to that (it's something I coded in manually, so there can easily be bugs).

I found that bug with some smiley too, using the standard editor.
If you put multiple smiley and edit the message, all the content between smilies are missing.

Edit my message using the standard editor, it will result in this :

I'm often editing PM before it's read D:
Don't remove it please.

It's like I want to add things instead of creating a new reply, or fix grammar etc., I can just click edit before the user read it.
I know, I could use preview, but I like the fact I can edit before it's read.

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen. I already had this problem with pikmin 2 but in the end I couldn't fix the problem. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?
