pfff, he has an unfair advantage!! i cant wait for everyone to come back.
btw everyone, the pm things only hold 50 messages, and this includes all the ones uv sent, i discovered year old ones... so have an empty out of ur sent items and stuff or u wont receive any!

So we should delete the ones we've sent? (I have done this now) And what if people haven't read them yet? (I thought of this after I deleted them...) Are they lost?

And how do we insert smilies?

Test [:)]

:eek: lol, i just deleted my sent ones, cos there was about a hundred there and i cudnt receive anymore, i think once they're sent, you can delete them cos from your sent folder, i dont think it makes a difference if theyv been read by the other person or not, on similar forums it doesnt anyway

we're a posh forum now, aren't we? :cool:

lol the test worked ;)

but not all of the smileys are functional
:O shock for instance

aww I'm glad some of the messages were restored. I had a weird delete moment awhile back :$ (nope embarassed doesn't work either)

:D

If you go to 'Quick Links' and then 'Edit Options' you can chose to work in WYSIWYG format and chose the smilies from a drop-down menu... :eek:

just tell her to email me if she has any problems.

Angela

I think I actually got rid of my problems with the new forum. I can now log in with Firefox and seem to stay logged in, the way higher powers intended it. Hurray! :D That was really annoying. I had to use IE just for coming here. :mad:

I hope Tricia gets her problems sorted soon.

emmett, jenn fox seems to be having problems logging back in too, when she requested her new password, the igloo sent out a completely different user name and password to her...she said she emailed you though

she just asked me to post this here as she's not able to herself, see if anyone had the same problem :)

Isn't this exciting! And imagine, in the future we'll probably look back and say-remember the old forum? Sigh...those were the days.

Fair play to ya emmett.

Kudos on picking this forum emmett, it's used by a couple of other boards I frequent, big fan of it.

hey emmett
thanks very much for spending sooo much time on the 'gloo!
It's going to take some time to get used to it
Is there any chance that the reply box can be made like it was on the old EF website? just a thought, don't worry if you can't
Thanks again emmett!

i can't really remember the old quick reply screen... is it you'd like the full smiley interface thingie? i can probably turn that on if that's what you mean.

administrator
03-01-2005, 11:43 PM
hmm... i tried turning it on but that didn't seem to make a difference.

i've added in all the old smilies now too. the forum will keep improving, just give it time

Our smilies are back1!

:smiley31:
Wheels, where did you find the old-style smilies? I can't find them! I feel a bit like I did when I moved house last year. Your new keys feel odd, and although you've brought all your old furniture, it all looks different in a new setting, and somebody unloaded the box containing the cutlery and put it in the shed, no wonder it took me two days to find it! (But it feels great to be home. Thanks again, emmett)! Oh yes, and you hope you haven't left anybody behind at the old house!

Wheels

Mari,

Click 'quick links' 'edit options' then scroll down to 'miscellaneous options' and chose the 'Enhanced interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing' format

Then you have your smilies on the right of your text box when you reply. All the old AND news ones :)

mari

Thanks Wheels, you little darling, it worked!:smiley31: :smiley36: Ooh, I love those little smilies!

Angela

It's ridiculous how attached we've become to those smilies, isn't it? But they are the BEST EVER!!!! :p :smiley4:
