    Default smilies and graphics

    Can we ask for particular smileys or graphics to be added to our little collection? Are there any guidelines I need to watch out for?

    There's something I'm always looking for and think would be there but can never find. How about Brain Fog? Plus more options for PAIN would be super. I saw a blog somewhere else where the author used all smiles for the imaginary ER 1-5 pain scale and then made up her own of 1-11 that was much more realistic as well as hysterical. Right this minute I'm at "weasels ripped my flesh" for anyone who remembers Frank Zappa.

    Smile

    I have found that usually one or two mods on a site do the smilies. Find the right person{s} and set up a dialog with him or her so you can just send the smilies directly to them in a PM.

    Of course you can ask for more :) Only a few restrictions would apply; no obscenities, no nude, no political (patriotic ie the flag or statue of liberty are ok as far as I'm concerned), and they have to be free. So if you got any from a subscription icon site we couldn't use them here unless we get permission.

    I've been trying to find good "brain" smilies to use here and I haven't found any that I like :( I'll continue to look though and if you know of any please let me know where they are so I can check them out :)

    That would be me
    Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
    Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.

    Wink Funniest PAIN SCALE!

    http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.co...-probably.html

    OK, folks, put on your Depends because this is asolutely the most hysterical Pain Scale EVER. Your endorphins should be roiling by the time you finish. Might need Kleenex too because I couldn't stop the tears of laughter.

    Which reminds me -- which is the actual SMILE smiley? The one I see on the sidebar has red cheeks for some reason...

    Do we have a sun and a moon? All phases of weather? A palette of emotions to choose from one extreme to the other? Jeez, I don't want much do I?

    Thanks again, Mikie. :angel: You're our Board Angel!

    Sher that is hilarious. Thanks for the laugh.

    As for the smileys I am perusing the net for a good variety. If you hold your cursor over the smiley it will tell you what it is for. Click on More below them and you get a good variety.
