Click on "Quote" at the bottom right hand side of the post.
If you want to edit the quote make sure that you don't remove the quote bits in brackets at the start and finish of the quote or you lose who the quote was from.

For some reason this page I will link to is VERY hard to find once logged in (unless I'm having a thick moment) it has all sorts of info in it - that may be of interest

PS - That sort of question is not dumb - it is good - it is a question for the purpose of gaining knowledge and that's a good thing to do - it would be dumb not to ask :)

Don't ya just hate it when a link fails (I know I do!!) :angry: :lol:

You're welcome Robert - I haven't read all of those helps files myself - I'm one of those kinds of people who refuse to read a manual most of the time - unless I get totally stuck - stubborn would be a good describing word I guess :lol: hope that it is of some use anyway - if anything else crops up just give us a shout :)

Can you do old fashioned ones? Like the following:

; ) Wink
: ) Small smile
: D Big smile or grin
: ( Unhappy
: / Annoyed

Usually there isn't a space between these characters but I had to put one or the forum auto turns them into the forum smileys

You know the rest of the forum emoticons/smileys are all words? For example (a couple of words that aren't logged in the forum's base)
:shout:
:sigh:

They all have a colon at the beginning and end like that.

The real words are things like

star fight gather rolleyes unsure huh (with a colon at the start of the word and end with no spaces) which then come up like :star: :fight: etc... does it work that way or does your pc just prevent it?

I guess a clearer way of saying what I mean is can you do them like the first idea?
AND
Can you do them like the second method even if you don't see them until you post?
OR
Does your pc prevent you from doing so with both methods? :)

If you want to know more just let me know :)

How are you on abbreviations?

http://www.asd-forum...-abbreviations/

I found that post to be quite funny to read and it enlightened me on some of the uses of abbreviations here when I first joined :)

The only ones I would remember (and use the most) are

LOL
ROFL
WTF?
OMG!
IMO
IMHO

and that's about it. But it's nice to have a kind of dictionary on here to look things up if needed but I would probably be too lazy to use it

I only read it once, but I seem to have a good memory for the stupid internet and text abbreviations - its funny cuz I often write my text messages (on my ancient mobile phone) in full even though I know how to write it in "text speak shorthand" :lol: I think the word "cuz" is my laziest word that gets used the most often, even though I know full well I should say because or 'cause - hardly a major offence though :D
