Peter which one are you not sure the meaning of? I promise you all of them are intended to be taken in good humor and positive. Even :bat

Hi Moon.

At times there were different ones. In wanting to post a reasonable reply I went looking for the meaning(s) of the emoticon(s) but nver found one spot with all the emoticons listed/displayed. Plus as I mentioned before, it can take a lot of time to find out what an emoticon means.

I was just curious.

Don't worry about it. If I have the time I'll search out the meaning and if I'm busy I'll either ignire it or look it up later.

Cheers from Peter

Peter...if you reply by using the quick reply, there is nothing there to refer to....but when you reply using the "Reply" tab, you'll see all the available ones the site uses in picture format. Forgive me if I misunderstood you-- but I never use code-- just click on the one I want and it puts the code in for you...

I'm curious. Why do people just use an emoticon to answer a post or make a comment? is it that hard to use a few words too?

Cheers from Peter

I wont answer for other people, but I was reading every post and responding to most for a number of years. Partially because I am an admin and partially because I think everyone should have some response to their posts. Unfortunately I am constantly in pain despite meds and I'm down in the dumps more than up. A result of that is I have almost completely stopped posting and then feel guilty and try to post more again. For someone who answers so many posts I find I sound the same over and over again and so started just putting an emoticon down. Now I am just trying to stay current and so will likely use an emoticon because its simple.
As to the meanings, they are fairly self explanatory but if you hover your mouse over it will give the code which will explain the emoticon.

I know I am one of the worst offenders for just posting a pic with no content so if antone out there finds this annoying let me know and I'll stop plain and simple.

Hi James.

It was NOT my intent to offend anyone. I was simply curious about the emoticons, their meanings and their use.

I think this is an instance when I should have just kept quiet. Very sorry if I've offended anyone.

Cheers

I have been here just about from the beginning (or there abouts) and cannot remember anyone being offensive (except SA Dave, but that us just the way he is). We have hijacked threads, gotten a little risqué or just stupid, but I don't think anyone has been intentionally offensive.

If so, send them to me. It has been 35 years since I saw combat and am starting to jones for a little action. :yipee :silly: (Yippie, Silly)

If you use the quick reply you will have to do it manually Peter. When you use the [REPLY TOPOIC] though it will give a little window that shows the basic emotes. I myself never use just an emote. There is always text and the emote is to fit the text and add a little flair. It is nice to see list of the different ones I have seen around. If those are available on the system (like that long show on page 1) It might be nice to have a page made up that could be printed out with the emote and the code next to it. Usually the code will explain if in doubt.

James I think you do quite well! I never knew you had some health issues, but don't feel guilty about posting or not. It is always voluntary and I always appreciate it when anyone posts. A simple "Looks good!" is more than enough for most items. Lately my upper back has been giving me fits. Probably onset of arthritis as my mom has it real bad. Just one of those things. Won't stop me from doing what I enjoy, just have to deal with it. My pain tolerance is quite high, so what I tend to ignore has a lot of folks eating aspirin like candy.

Anyway, it's all about having fun and enjoying the chat with each other. On another forum everyone looky loos and no one ever says squat. Not conducive to posting there and they better wake up or I will be ignoring them.

Sorry this got long winded. :smack
