    I was talking to deanxxczx earlier, and I posted [​IMG][​IMG] in the popped up shoutbox (in a new window), and in the embedded shoutbox on the portal, it shows the text itself, just
    Code:
    :dry::dry:
    The same thing happened a while ago with the [​IMG] emote.


    I posted another bug not even two weeks before this, be careful or I'll undermine the entire site [​IMG]


    EDIT: And another one (already), I spoke to MegaAce the other day too, I messed around with the filter for fuzzy kittens, and it appeared as "fuzzy kittens" on my windows, but still showed the L word for MegaAce, which he screencapped and showed me; again, in the shoutbox.

    I think it could be because you didn't include a space in between them.

    Wasn't that, because not including the space on normal forum posts has no effect:


    [​IMG] [​IMG] (space)
    [​IMG][​IMG] (no space)


    Plus, the same thing happened with [​IMG] when there was only the one emote, and nothing else that could've distorted it.

    The [​IMG][​IMG] appeared perfectly normally in the separate shoutbox I posted them in, but not in the embedded one. I think if I post in the embedded shoutbox and then look at the separate one, they both appear normal.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Still happening; I posted the [​IMG] in the separate shoutbox; appears as text in the embedded one.

    It seems to be happening when you submit in the pop up shoutbox (only)...

    Exactly, shouting in the embedded box displays the emote in both boxes, but not shouting in the other.

    It's at the front page. [​IMG] Check your board settings, you might have disabled it by accident.

    You only need 100 posts to view the shoutbox.

    Yeah, outgum has more posts that me and he joined 8 months later [​IMG]

    If I can access the shoutbox, so can he.

    I think you needed to disable and re-enable it to see it properly.
