Default Smiley and Image Only Posts Are Being Deleted

Per the rules we do require content in people's posts. Quality over quantity.

Image and smiley only posts are always deleted automatically when seen by a mod or reported by a member. Always have been, actually.

If you put meaningful content in there, of course, they won't be deleted.

Don't worry too much. We aren't terribly fussy about what constitutes meaningful content. But be aware that something like, "Filler" or a bunch of random crap isn't going to be considered meaningful.

So, if you're wondering where your image or smiley-only post went, hopefully this should explain it.

Bumping this back up again, as I've been seeing a couple of posts lately that fit this description.

It's not rocket science, folks. Really.

I don't think you need to worry, man. SmileyEagles are an endangered species, are they not?

I wasn't even aware of this - figured emoticons would bring up the same error as limited character replies do.

No. No worries there.

sms -- I know you can enter emoticons via their text equivalents by enclosing them in a pair of colons, so my guess would be that most emoticons, in and of themselves, count as the colons plus the "codename" for the smiley, thus making even a small number of emoticons be seen by the system as long enough to be a proper post.

eg, or : angel : (remove the spaces) likely counts as 7 characters for the purposes of "post size," and or : brainbleach :, as 13.
