    They don't appear to be parsed. I don't see any good reason to leave them out of profile posts :)

    I think part of it is because it would look weird when you view a Membership Card (look at mine with my latest post, then imagine putting a smilie there).

    I am wondering if it would be possible to have smilies being parsed in the status you input from your profile page ?

    I do not know if it is a permission to allow BBcode and Smilies in profiles of users. If the guys show up online later and haven't replied yet, I might give them a poke.

    I can't find the thread where this was mentioned, but I had talked about it probably for the take of looking light and well-styled. Smilies in the Member Card wouldn't look to well I suspect.

    I am sure the profile page can render them, while member card doesn't?

    If it doesn't cause too much trouble I suppose that might work?

    I believe they are parsed on display, so yeah, that should work. :)

    EDIT: Actually, I take that back. If you reply to my post, you'll notice that the smiley appears to simply be an image with a URL of "styles/default/xenforo/smilies/smile.png". I could be wrong about this, but from this it looks like they are actually inserted as images, and not parsed on display. Kier or Mike, care to comment? :)

    No, they're parsed on display.

    BB codes (and related, including smilies) aren't handled in profile posts/statuses. The only thing is a special case for URLs.

    Oh ok, is this a facebook like way of thinking or could it be provided as an option ?

    I think there will be tight twitter integration (why else would it be limited to 140 characters ??), so smilies etc won't work

    No, I think more like visual simplicity/minimalism on the profile page.

    This is intentional, but feel free to post a suggestion if you'd like to see it. :)

    any option to switch it on/off for Admin ?

    really not that important, just a suggestion for XF-version 5.3.8 ;)
