How do I put a smilie in a rep point. Everyone's doing it, why I can't I? :cry:

And see how much I love the little buggers.

The easiest way is to use the character set for that particular smilie, for example: :-) for happy. There are lists of the character set for various smilies. I don't know them all offhand.

If you do the drop down smiley menu (in a regular posting setting) it'll give you the codes for each smiley. Usually some variation of ; ) (;)) or : D (:D) etc.

Keep in mind I put spaces between those typed examples so the forum wouldn't automatically make them real smileys.

Yeah, good job. ;)

It works. Sorry a little more practising coming up. ;) :) :banana: :guns:
Ok that should cover most everything I'll ever need in a rep point.

Keep in mind that some people have the emoticons/smilies turned off in their CPanel, so they might not see the images -- just some very odd looking text.

Why would they do that? Rep points are nice but rep points with smilies are way nicer.

I'm one of'm. Emoticons are the devil's trademarks.

I thought that was rock 'n' roll?

I'm so confused.

What, even this one.:hi: He's so cute. Look at him. He's kinda shy. Admittedly if you look at him upside down there is a hidden message.

.....I did not just look at him upside down.

Okay, how many posts do I have now? How long have I been posting on these boards? And I didn't know the answer to that question about smilies in reps? Seriously, I was wondering that myself but didn't ask. Thank you, The Lady, from a not-so-stormy, sort-of-calm, person.

Ha, I looked long and hard for an answer to that question before I asked. I don't admit ignorance easily.

Yes!! I just sent you (The Lady) a rep and you got my smilie! Nice to know I wasn't alone in that department.

They are "pros" and "antis" to everything. Hell, some people hate babies. And cats!

If you open this link:

and bookmark it, you can open it with a right click in a new window or tab and cut/ paste the codes, too. :)

:hooray:T hat is clever in so many ways. Imagine, people knew this all along. Also discovered you have to open a new window or you loose your message.

Indeed. So where's my rep point with the test smilie. Everybody else has given me one. Thanks is not enough sometimes but a simple rep point might suffice. ;)
