  1. Why when I type : plus ) I see a smile like this :), but when I type ; plus ) I don't get this :wink2:, when I type : plus / I don't get this :thinking: and so on??????


    Intriguing... :question: (btw, not : plus ? )
  2. the answer is in the smilies:

  3. But Andrew, why is : plus ( the same as : sad : together? You see, there are shortcuts... :) (shortcutting!!!).

  4. To do with how the smilies are coded into the forum software. Some shortcuts are recognised whereas some others aren't that you maybe used to in other forums and/or messaging systems.

    Not all smilie packages use the same shortcuts :wink2:
