Hi,
the first problem is the following. Embedding a smiley into a sentence may not always work. for instance if u have to use special characters to separate parts of it: Example:
Smile . Works, because there's a space in between
:). doesn't. Same is with any other character. Default behavior in the old 1.x series was that the smiley would be triggered even if there was an question/exclamation mark, colon, comma or full stop.

2nd Problem:
if u want to dedicate an answer especially to a member u will start with something like "@member: " and then go ahead. However if u set this at the very beginning of ur post, @member will be transferred to a mailto link. This strongly looks like a unintentional behavior in my eyes Wink
bye Ken

There's another one:
no matter how high I set the number of moderators to be shown on the frontpage, it'll be always two of them. Admin controlpanel shows the correct number.

Both are intentional, allow me to explain why.

The smilies, are no longer done by regex, and require a valid separator character before & after it for the smiley to trigger. The reason this is done is so that smilies do not trigger in wrong place such as :pserver:anonymous etc...
Although, it probably would make sence to allow ',' and '.' to be valid separators, since smilies can occur right before those characters in normal sentences.

The email link behavior is identical to the one in most mail clients, if you try any mail client that tries to automatically pickup on emails within a message you will see the same kind of behaviour. The reason behind this, is so that non-internet email address' are supported, such as me@myhome.

hm, but look: the email link is only generated when @anyone stands at the beginning. it does not occur if it appears somewhere else, so I would consider it as a bug, or at least irritating because if I type an email address I will use a user@company format. Concerning the smileys I'd say far the most of them I use to place either right before the end of a sentence or a part of it (seperated by comma, colon whatever). So this will occur quite often. Though it's still ur choice which I will respect I think allowing to place smileys before these characters would be far more useful to me.
Just my humble opinion Wink
bye Ken

The smiley issue has been resolved in CVS.

Now, ',', '.', '?', '!' are valid smiley separators, so it will triger on smilies followed and/or preceded by those characters.

Ken, I do not believe I understand the issue completely.

user@company works and works correctly

@company does not work, as it shouldn't since @company is not a valid address.

Where is the problem?

Do u see that? as u said, it's not a valid address, however it will be generated as such. This is what I meant.

Ok the prob here is that they are "cached", so we don't trash mysql pointlessly upon index page requests (and there is no convent way to make it fast with mysql with some sort of neat join hack), however when you change the moderation stuff with the user manager it cache gets rebuilt, so the problem was that no one checked whether this setting was changed in the globals control panel and bothered to rebuild the cache, should be fixed now.
