I seldom try to pick a fight in person or on the `net. But my typing doesn't do much to try to show humor.
Once again Enysse, I'm sorry for the confusion about it.

An unfortunate by-product of the internet. Intended humor is often left behind and in its place an apparent snarkyness. Its why I often leave the rolleyes:rolleyes: smiley with my posts, so at least its obvious I am trying to be funny (even when not obvious) while sounding snarky!:rolleyes::cool:

I haven't found the silly faces here just the post icons. Any that I use are typed in. I'll keep scouting around for them.

In the advanced reply area, to the right of the title blank area, it's blank.

Hmmm, well perhaps Brick or someone can explain this, I cant.:confused: But instead of using advanced, just try reply or reply with quote.

When you click "reply" button. Quick reply window will appear.
In the quick reply window you should see a header with various editing options in it, including a "smiley face".
It is a button, click on it and the list of faces/symbols will appear.

Nope there's no header in the quick reply area either. Just the plain jane reply box.

And if you hit reply with quote? Still no little box on the right top with smiley in it??

No. I just came back and logged in using Chrome instead of IE and it's the same. The box at the very bottom that shows posting permissins is showing the smilies are on.

I'll drop a note to Jerome and see just what's going on.

Until then I'll just type in the icons so there's less confusion.

There isn't anything like those headers on my screen. Could it be a setting on my `puter?
I don't have anything like this happening elsewhere..
If it's too much hassle don't worry about it.

A screenshot of what you are looking at on a reply post would be helpful. Thanks.

I'm not computer literate so bear with me while I figure that out..
Basicly I see the blank title box in advancedand under that is the reply box with out and font choices ot any othe the options that you show on your screen shots.
In the quick reply the only thing above is the black bar that says quick reply.

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
