Hey all - glad you like all the new smilies that are showing up in my posts. Thanks for asking about them.
Folks have asked about them in a couple of different posts, so I thought I'd provide an answer where everyone can see...
I love different smilies, and have collected them for a long time - one other board I visit doesn't have the cool feature that this one does, with all the smilies available right here. So, I started saving the ones I saw in different spots to use on the other board.
Now, here there are lots of cool smilies, but I sometimes want something different!
People with websites don't like other people linking to images and stuff on their websites - it's called bandwidth stealing. So I save them in a folder and then upload them to my own website. I figure it doesn't matter if I steal my own bandwidth, right?
Anyone that wants to use any of them is welcome to - my website is http://www.geocities.com/fire_godess_e35/signatures
Here is a quick lesson in UBB code to put one on this website.
Find an image that you like and right click on it. Select the word properties. It will give you the web address of the image. Highlite and copy it. Now, where you want to paste it in your message type like this [img]*******[/img]
where the ****** is the web address that you paste in.
If in your travels elsewhere on the web, you've seen smilies that you like, let me know and I will try to upload them to my website for folks to use. I do change them out from time to time as my tastes change....
FYI - I got a lot of them from this website: http://jm.g.free.fr/smileys/
there are tons of them there.
