I was wondering if the Clickable Smileys could be updated,Please.
There is not enough to choose from,especially in Birthday Wishes or special occassions,IMHO.
To get anything really good,I have to go to Firefox Smileys.
Not much at all for Christmas Smileys,also.
This would be icing on the cake. :thumbsup:

Hey DSTM,

I use a firefox extension called "Smiley Xtra 4." Works like a charm to add to the smileys here to use. But ofcourse a refreshment or addition would be cool too. ;)

The Smiley4 project is at a standstill now. What you can do is the following :

In Firefox go to extra addons. With smiley4 click on options and with insert action "copy to clpboard "click ok. This will mean that you have to keep your FF open so if you click than on insert it copies it to the clipboard and with CTRL V you can post it into your IE screen. I have tried it and that works :thumbsup:

Or, you could use a clipboard manager, then there would be no need to have Firefox open.

I haven't used a clipboard manager in a long time, DSTM.
I was starting to add too much information to the manager, so as to make it, unmanagable. :thumbsup:
I started saving things, in a different way (Notepad docs).
Then that started to get unmanagable, so I changed to yet another way of storing information, thanks to a suggestion from Animal (KeyNote).

When I used a clipboard manager, it was Mike Lin's Clipomatic.
It will more than handle, what you want to use it for.

Writing this, gave me another idea, of a way to save your smilies, and you won't have to install another program.
Copy your smilies to the clipboard, then paste them, with a description next to each one, into a Notepad document.
Call it, Smilies. :flowers:
Then you can just leave the Notepad document open, and just Copy/Paste the smilie you want to use.
Just another option, to think about.

Of course, one could just avoid Smilies altogether, and not have the problem.

I like the Smileys, John.Adds a bit of humour to the posts,to lighten the mood.IMHO.
I will try 'Yankee Clipper 111' and see how it goes.
The screen shots and the description sound OK. :thumbsup:

Late EDIT.Thanks Rob (rowal5555) also, for recommending 'Yankee Clipper 111)

Ah! jgweed

Where or when words fail one, smileys are the fallout.

Many of us have been awaiting the arrival of the word smith & bard=Weedy.

I like the smileys.. but they are supposed to be for augmentation.. not be the sole reason for a post imho.
