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.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
