Have now found that, cheers. 😉

Also works here in the reply if you hover over the symbol.

Re: What the.....! Smileys

I noticed that ebays (lithium) forum seems to have updated a bit as well. Nothing that results in - where's that gone - though. Cut down number of smileys probably less than a quarter of what's here and no dodgy smileys.

How come they get a half sensible update and we get a pigs ear?

They're so pointless when you have hover over them then read what they're supposed to be.

Re: What the.....! Smileys

These changes are not bringing a ' smile' to my face.

Like when they first had coloured photographs in newspapers back in the early 80s I think it was, I thought it was bonkers!

Re: What the.....! Smileys

As well as spell checkers making us dumb, can the same be said about emojis turning us all into 'non fluent asphasics'?

I use them far to often I know, but I was struck earlier (not literally) when reading the excellent as always letters pages in Private Eye how it's possible to write comments without them, or the need to include in order to add humour or avoid giving offence.

*Memo to self:  Must try harder, sans emojis*
