    Hey all. A small forum upgrade to announce. We added some new smiley's/emoticon's to the previous set of smiley's.

    As we all know...sometimes the words we type don't always convey the feeling/emotion we intend. I'm sure we've seen posts where the post sounded sort of angry, grumpy, or snarky...but in truth...the member really meant to be funny, comical, or teasing. Thus many times a great idea to insert a smiley or two into a post so folks know exactly the "emotional tone" you wish to convey.

    Also increased the number of smiley's visible when you click on the "smiley button" when composing a post (thus don't need to click on the "more" link as often):

    Previous Smiley Pop-Up Window:

    New Smiley Pop-Up Window (plus enlarging the window slightly):

    All of the new Smiley's are slightly larger & hopefully a bit easier to see on larger resolution displays. All of the new Smiley's are also animated...thus a little more visual impact.

    Also if you click on the "More" button in the Pop-Up window...you get a small description of what emotion the Smiley is supposed to be conveying...AND...you get the keyboard short-cut to insert the Smiley without needing to use the Smiley button/pop-up window.

    Enjoy the new Smiley's...and please use them often to give your posts the full emotional meaning you intend.

    The only one that's missing is a Texas 10 gallon hat smiley made especially for Slydude. LOL

    Those are great. Nice upgrade.

    Thanks Nick.

    Kudos on the smiley upgrade. I'm just happy to have better descriptions of them. I don't remember all of them and these old eyes usually had a little trouble reading the descriptions.

    I think it might have been the burrito I was eating at the time. Not feeling as intelligent now!
