    Are you referring to something like this: (:))?

    If so, it's because XenForo recognises "(:" as a smiley.

    Really, it's just ambiguous. However, it's parsed left to right, so it finds the first smiley (: which sets up the rest of how it parses.

    Just posting here because I ran into this issue and searched for "emoticon parentheses" and didn't immediately find this thread. This post ought to fix that for others in the future.
