I did start a list here but then I saw Phrontister's link and that's much better. What surprised me is I made a contribution which I had forgotten.

Would someone like the task of checking these: https://tl.net/forum/smilies.php  ? Some of these may work on MIF.

I've just followed the other link to the bcc help page. I didn't even know this page existed. 

Would you like me to move it to the top of the help page as a 'sticky'?

Only 5 of them do, but they're already on our list.

Re: is there a listing of *all* the smilies (emoticons) we can use?

hi phro,

Will do.  What has got me puzzled is that http://www.mathisfunforum.com/help.php#smilies doesn't seem to appear anywhere.  If someone does not  know this url how would they ever find it?

And it doesn't have any options for me to edit it, so I cannot add anything to it.

edit: I have copied that page into the help section. I'll add the other smilies and also 'stick' it when I get a moment.

Hi Bob;

The BBCode help page link appears under the message box when you're posting, but not at other times, I think.

I've edited my post above. A copy of the bcc page is now in the help me section.

All for now as chores are calling. More editing in a couple of days when I get time.

I always mis-type bbcode as my brain thinks it's something to do with the BBC.

Isn't it the middle of the night for you?
