Re: smilies smilies and more smilies.


Graphics are a problem for dial-up users, or some dial up users, but the first thing to remember is that you really don't have to wait for the graphics to load to begin typing a message or response. I don't half the time, even though I've been on cable for the past year or so. emoticon Old habits die hard.

On the net you will find many listings for emoticons, which are the old way of doing smileys and are non-graphical. Some of these emoticons have become the standard symols for the graphical equivalents, such as : ) for the emoticon.

For a young board, or a board that is just new, these symbols can often be used in as the code for the graphical smileys we use on our boards. You just look through the list of emoticons and match them to the smiley that fits the closest to them.

Another think yo ucan du is reduce the graphical smileys in size and use less animated smileys. Animated smileys eat up more resources than static.. as a general rule.

Personally I think your smileys are fine, but I don't have to contend with dial-up.

Now there is one trouble with putting lots of smileys on a board and that problem is the Members love them and get upset when you start deleting them. lol On my board I decided to quit playing games and load the max amount.. now very few people want to do away with any and they even want more.. Arghhh!

Re: smilies smilies and more smilies.


They do get addictive. emoticon

I made the decision on my board to always keep the Runboard Default Smileys just in case the connection between my image storage site and Runboard is interrupted, however I am toying with the idea of grouping the smileys I have on the computer and those I find into folders on my computer labeled in a similar way as the code I use for the smileys I have. That way I can change the smileys with out getting those nasty red X's.

You might think on the idea and improve upon it... I don't mind. I figure we're all in this together. lol

I keep thinking of getting rid of the defaults, but I just know someday the connection between by image server and my board will quit. lol

It does. lol Sinve I've said that Photobucket decided I exceeded my bandwidth limit and through up their little screens all over the place... so I switched servers and for now have hall my images on Imageshack. I now plan to find another image server or two and split my images to further reduce the risk of that happening again. If Photobucket comes back up at the end of the month I will use that for tempoarary images.
