Just to be difficult …

I just made a discovery - those cute little smiley emoticons that go a long way to avoiding many of the hurt feelings that come and go on this site ……. don’t appear in the final post! : ignore - ingnore (

Bring back our emoticons boo hoo

Re: Just to be difficult …

Lol-I know what you mean, they’re actually kind of cute :¬)

Maybe we The session had their own smileys at one point, I suppose?

Re: Just to be difficult …

Doesn’t look like any problems to me. I think you were using a "greater than" or "less than" bracket. Those read as code to the server, and so nothing after that will show up if you don’t leave a space, I’m thinking.

Re: Just to be difficult …

aha! you’ve nailed it on the head Zina

Re: Just to be difficult …

Hurt feelings? On this site?

I guess the little winking smilies didn’t come out, BegF, and now I’ve hurt your feelings too.

Re: Just to be difficult …

Ok - slight change of direction - anyone have any ITM smilies?

Re: Just to be difficult …

seems a bit strange that you can’t include a greater-than sign. you might be able to do it as > or <
(testing…)

Re: Just to be difficult …

OK, it didn’t come out too well, I won’t try it again….

Re: Just to be difficult …

Well, anything bracketed by a less than sign on the left and a greater than sign on the right goes away into nullspace along with odd socks and all of those paperclips you could have sworn were in your desk drawer. I know this from sad experience. :p

At risk of not taking things seriously enough …

Nope, Sara, don’t think so, just had a good rummage and the missing smileys aren’t here. No paperclips either.

Re: definitely not serious enough

OK, Tish, the Silliness Police will be mailing you a ticket for that infraction. *grin*
Great site! I bet I’ll find my 8th grade report card inthe bottom drawer.

I know I’m right, Rog, I had several peripheral comments vanish before I noticed and realized what was going on. :p
I do think we’ve gone down the rabbit hole, but that’s true of this entire site. (Which is an expression of appreciation. Alternative reality is a good thing for those of us who are trapped behind a desk all day long. We’d go bonkers without it.)

Re: Just to be difficult …

Why not turn the face rightside-up? like this —> ( ºUº )

If you think the emoticon is naughty bits, make an appointment with a qualified shrink immediately.
