Smile Smilies

you may have noticed that in some topics, the Smilie icons are absent from the right-hand side of the message box, even though the Smilies function is turned on. in order to use Smilies without the icons to click on, you'll have to manually type in the Smilie face description/directive. here's a guide to do that:

regular smiley face: colon + end parens
wink: semi-colon + end parens
the "I've got an idea" guy: colon + the word "thinker" + colon
the guy saying "blah": colon + "blah" + colon
the guy wearing a mask: colon + "mask" + colon
banging your head against a wall: colon + "wall" + colon
frowning guy: colon + beginning parens
"OMG" guy: colon + "eek" + colon
big grin: colon + capital letter "D"
sticking out tongue: colon + letter "P"
cool dude wearing sunglasses: colon + "cool" + colon
rolling eyes: colon + "rolleyes" + colon
mad guy: colon + "mad" + colon
question marks guy: colon + "confused" + colon
thumbs up: colon + "thumbup" + colon
thumbs down: colon + "thumbdn" + colon
guy drinking coffee: colon + "coffee" + colon
the siren: colon + "alarm" + colon
flaming mad guy: colon + "madhell" + colon
coffee cup & guy with dark circles: colon + "gmorning" + colon
embarrassed guy: colon + letter "o"

and just fyi:

a colon is this :
a semi-colon is this ;
beginning parens (
end parens )


hope that helps and makes sense.
this is only temporary & eventually, the icons will be back.

You can also hit the smilie button at the bottom of the page and it will bring up all the smilies and their keyboard directive.

It seams to me sometimes the icons are there and sometimes not even in the same topic - or maybe I don't pay enough attention to notice a pattern

OMG! i never knew you could click on the blue "smilies" word! well now i feel like i should be on the short bus! i typed out all that stuff & it's all right there ........geez. oh well, at any rate, we have to type it out manually instead of clicking the icon.

thanks Mark!
