Question:  After I post, there is a number that comes up just below the post, at the bottom right, just after the "Report" option and the angled Rubik's cube thingammy.  What is that?  I don't see it on anyone else's posts.  It doesn't change, so it's not a post count.


Also - You know I'm going to start about the emoticons soon, right? ;D

That icon represents interconnected computers and the numbers to the right are that user's IP address.

I just 60 seconds ago backed up the site to start working on Emoticons.  I've been collecting them for a couple weeks and now just need to adapt them to the site.

You are reading my mind Lil, or vice-versa.

Inter-connected computers????  ???
Pretty sure I'm not connected to anyone else.....am I? :o


As for the emotes, can you not just copy/paste?   My e-mails have some pretty good ones that I used to use.
I'm being dense, aren't I. Not a question.. :-X

And now, having just checked, they've got rid of the good one's.  Pfffffffff.

Maybe this is a good place for a POLL?  Personally, I would rather see fewer, but better emoticons, rather than more, but lamer ones.  I would like a heart emote back and a "LOL" or ROFL and a "puke".  Also a straight face.  Maybe you could poach some from other sites?


I think  you are doing a fantastic job AJ, and I can't give you credit enough!  :-*   (See, that should have been a heart emote).  You could do with some technical support.  If I could, I would, but.... well... we both know I can't.  You have started this amazing site.  We need to keep it going and it shouldn't be ALL on you.  There are a few tech wizzards (Terry Patchett ref), that could help out.


I may not be a tecchie, but if I can help, just ask.


Big hugs.

Hey, can you fix my club foot/ puck foot? In my profile. That's pretty skewed.

A little 50/50 to be honest.  Much better overall, for sure, but not what we need.  Too many that are redundant.  A couple that have been excluded.


May I suggest that you go a little further back to get the better ones?

Care to be more specific?

Let me guess.  You would like the emoticon that has a bunch of heart hovering over the smiley, so you can express your feelings for your favorite hunks on the team.  Am I close?   ;)

I'm guessing yes. Sent you a pm at the old site cause it was the easiest way to splain it

I'm pretty sure we have the equivalents of some of the ones you pointed out in the PM Alta. I just put up additional heart ones for Lil.

:mellow:   I'll work on this.

 :huh:   Hmm, I had a "confused" one. I'll find it later.

 :o    ???

I've added two others at the left right side of the list that should satisfy Lil's hunk-a-licious emoticons.  :hearts:    :whatahunk:

It's late. I have to be up early.  I'll try to refine these later.  This was only a first crack at it.  I figured there would be comments and requests. no problem there.

Good night!

You are amazing AJ!  THANK YOU!


Is it possible to have the script 30% bigger and the emoje's 30% smaller. so that they both fit?  So far the emoticons take up a whole paragraph of space and I have to squint a little to see the script...


Also, I only need 1 "heart" emojie.  The last one is pretty redundant and ginormous......!!!! :whatahunk:   Funny as it is, we don't need it.  Either of the other two work just as well.  I'm assuming this takes up a lot of   um.... space?
I don't think we need the "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" either


Pretty much when I first came here, most of the emoticons moved in some way or another.  They were simple but fun.  Basic, but effective.  I don't know why they were extinguished.

it looks to me like it's a tail, maybe if the other leg wasn't bent up under you

I think that's your Josie and the Pussycats look, with a tail.  If you have a better idea for an avatar just send me links to the images and how you envision them put together and I can probably do it for you.  I figured I would put something up that you might like since you had no avatar.  i'll work with you on it. I suppose I could just remove the tail (which I thought looked a bit like a hockey stick) and you'll be left standing on one leg.

AHA!  Maybe you should add a dumbass/embarrassed emote, just for me!  ::)

Signing in.


I chose "permanent" as a sign in time option and I posted just recently in the Oshie thread, but tonight I had to sign in again???


Any reason why?  No biggie or anything.... just.... why?  I could, maybe, understand if I hadn't posted for a month or so, but I posted just recently.

Hi all.  I just found this board.  One suggestion to keep the Penguin trolls away would be to change the captcha and force them to type "Ovechkin is the greatest hockey player of all time" every time they want to make a post.
