whats old is new and cat herders unite...

Postby douglasbot on Fri Dec 03, 2004 4:26 pm

Everytime I log in...the symbol next to the threads says "OLD!!" And doesn't seem to say "NEW!!" when there are clearly "NEW" posts.
And also is it possible to have anyone who uses smileys banned and possibly sent to a fate worse than death...like...oh i don't know...CAT HERDING!!

Board looks tops AS. I dub thee...TOPS!

regards,

d.

Doug! Il mio amico!

I'm afraId that the smilies must remain. I can't in all good conscience get rid of them as I'm guilty of their use form time to time (I'm ashamed to say... oh GOD don't hate me! *sobs*). But, I am not averse to replacing them with some that are less cloying than the standard ones you see here.
In fact I've already downloaded a set that look more like ascii than bloated yellow alien heads.

As for the new/old thing... I dunno. You should be seeing some 'new' now. I don't think it flags everything as new on your first login (and I don't have much control over it without digging into the code).

Thanks for the kind words, Doug. I workededed my little mouse finger to the bone gettin it all arranged.

Il vostro amico,
Maggie

Personally that one rolling its eyes just grates my nerves. As does the winker. And I'm not too fond of the one in shades either. Oh, the first one, big grinner, should also be shot.

Hmmm maybe I can turn them off completely somehow... You can turn them off, but it doesn't get rid of the little box on the left. Lemme stew on this.

OK. I have seriously pared down the smilies. :) There's a simple set that are very ascii-like. ;)

What think you all? (post a reply and you'll see the lot - there are only a dozen) =D

Personally, not a fan :(

I like the occasional smilie but few that I am in the minority.

I'm liking these smilies more than I ever liked the yellow set. Not entirely won over though, but that's a deep issue.

I got rapped over the knuckles once by an american mate for not using emoticons because she kept mis-interpreting the tone in my emails and I kept having to explain myself to her. So I got into the nasty habit of using emoticons because I got sick of being mis-read - but considering people mistake my general demeanor for angry anyway, there's probably not much point.

They definitely make me feel dirty.
