Dave,
I've seen you using smilies in some of your posts lately and I'm wondering if this is something you will be implementing for the rest of us to use? http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/p.php?pid=4740691

Okay, I'll share my secret. :)

Make the smily just like this:

^ _ ^

remove the spaces and you'll produce the famous Dave only (until now) smily.

Now, don't abuse this smily or I'll have to remove it. :-)

Ok, don't laugh at this old blonde, but I don't get it. I can't figure it out. But, that's probably for the best Dave, cause I would abuse it! I know me and I would be smillin at everyone in every sentence of every post probably! :)

You need to put a space between each character, then backspace them out and hit send. If it's still working. Let me try :-)

Edited to say, apparently I am using it for evil... I am not smiley capable. I will have to practice later. Oh, wait, I just had a thought... :-) I hope this is better...

Edited again to say, apparently I am evil no more!

Hold the shift key down and don't let go of it until all 3 characters have been typed.

With the shift key down, press the letter 6, then the dash sign (-) and then a 6 again. Then release the shift key. :-)

Yardbird - keep trying, it took me a couple of times to get it.

I hold down the shift key, (keep holding it down for uppercase letters/numbers):

click on the number 6, then the space bar, underline, then the space bar again, 6 again ... then go back and carefully delete the spaces :-)

I put one in a Dmail, and it worked fine... in fact, a friend taught me about them via Dmail -- thanks!

I'm trying to be restrained about using them. I actually appreciate the fact that we don't have a lot of bright dancing little emoticons to use on this site... although I'm a big fan of cute/silly, I think they'd be distracting, and I'd rather focus on what people are saying.

Thanks, Dave!

We are a very easily amused group, aren't we? Give us a little smiley and we can play contentedly for hours. If we were given 10 different figures, we'd probably never leave our computers again. I blame the winter, most of my brain cells died of hypothermia :-)

I know what we have on here is harmless with our keyboard - I'm, talking about a program called "Emotions" - it has a row of animated faces - you have to click on it to add it to your programs. I get them on many emails, but won't click on it to add to mine. It may be harmless, but I don't know, so why take the chance.

I love the yellow smilies... as with the ability to put text in bold, italics, etc., they can add interest or emphasis to a post. But I'm really glad Dave hasn't opened the door to a bunch of emoticons, animated dancing sig files, etc. I think I'd find them very distracting as I scrolled down through a thread.

KY, Yea, it does work, read down all this thread so many (including me) had to keep trying, it was always something we did wrong. In my case I held down the ctr key instead of the shift key. but if you hold down the shift then press the 6 let go, press the - let go press the 6 again you will see what appears like a cats face, but once you post it it turns into a smiley some where in cyberspace! It's important to just press the 6-6 with no spaces while holding down the shift:-)
