We Need A Central Location for Smilies...

    I love all the smilies, they make the forums more of an animated cartoon than IM thread.  But, going back and forth to find them is getting tedious.  Any suggestions?

    I have already asked that hubpages add the sarcastic smilie to their repertoire - and name it after me smile

    But this is a good idea. I have been dragging the text off the page and have made my own collection so I don't have to keep going back to an old thread. http://testbed.yeeshkul.com/upload/images/smilies/sexy.gif

    I thought about making my own file, too.  But that would involve work.  Perhaps not as much as chasing down old threads though...

    I guess I will


    I like your new friend.  She seems nice.

    I vote for a special thread too.  With instructions on how to copy and paste the darn things for the technologically challenged (i.e. me). 

    Mark, all the female Hubbers are crossing their arms right now.  All that bouncing hurts!

      Hey Marisa,

      I was having problems too with the smilies then after some advice from Misha I realised that all you need to do is copy the URL of the smilie. On my computer all I have to do is right click on the image and then hit "copy image location".
      Then in your reply box right click and paste the address, then add [img]at the front and[/img]  at the end. So the URL is sandwiched in between.

      Those little IMG tags are the html code to make the image work like it's suppose to. As long as you add them to the address exactly as they are posted here with their brackets then you can make any image work after that. And there are lotsa web sites with free smilies and images you can use.

      I hope this is helpful. I know what it's like to be web challenged.

    QUOTE the post you like and then copy it into a Notepad doc.

    Add "tags" with each entry. Of words that you think would best describe the action or the emotion that is conveying.

    Then when you need to use one do a Find and type in the word you're after.

    That's the low-tech version of streamlining the process smile
