This is strange.......

####7 <- 3 Lower case x's typed.

####7 <- 3 Capital case X's typed.

Edit:

I've tried this with a few other letters and characters.
But it only is happening with the X letter. :?

enter ":)" or ":(" WITHOUT the quotes and it converts it to :D
Will this turn into an 'Easter Egg' hunt?

That's nothing new.
Several other sites using "Smilies", have been converting ":)", ":(" to the Smilie image for awhile now.
Almost all the Smilies that this Forum Software uses that are gray Smilies have the old style emoji.
Example:
:D =":D"
:) =":)"
Only :roll: and :lol: don't convert to "roll", or "lol".

Well, this is how I feel about this subject.Image

Again, my experince is....
If I logon and do not click 'Remember Me' it makes me logon again at any entry screen. Most sites are smart enough to remember you until you log off and will remember you when you log back in if you did not clear the cookies. Sure acts like a bit of bad code or an incorrect option setting.

Interesting........

What browser are you using?
I'm using FireFox 65.0

If I don't click on the 'Remember Me' during login, and take to long too finish typing a post.
I will get bumped, and I will need too login again.

I wonder if it could be some sort of timer?
In which if you don't type anything in a certain amount of time, it will drop you unless 'Remember Me' is checked during login.

EDIT:
Ah Ha!
Under the FAQ's of this forum I found this...
Why do I get logged off automatically?
If you do not check the Remember me box when you login, the board will only keep you logged in for a preset time. This prevents misuse of your account by anyone else. To stay logged in, check the Remember me box during login. This is not recommended if you access the board from a shared computer, e.g. library, internet cafe, university computer lab, etc. If you do not see this checkbox, it means a board administrator has disabled this feature.

Hey guys! This post gave me some spots to check in the settings and I may have found what we are looking for. The "Maximum time to submit forms" setting was set to 7200 seconds (120 minutes). I've disabled this so there should be no amount of time allotted to submit. The Remember Me key is set to 90 days.

Please let me know if this helps and you stop experiencing the problem.
