Marina, you have to type in the code for the smiley you want to use. For instance, a simple smile would be : ) - but without the space in between. A yawn would be : yawn: (but again, without the space after the colon).

You yourself won't see the smilies in your comment-line, though, you'd only see your code...

My advice: if you don't know the codes for the smilies, open a second window, open the reply (you can go back later with the back-key without replying anything), open the smiley-window; then go to the post you want to rate and open the rate-window; you'd still be able to see all the codes for the smilies in the smiley-window.

Or you can learn them by heart, they're not too difficult to remember.

You can also open the smilie window (go to post reply, click on the "view more smilies" and then don't post the reply, just go back). You'll have a separate pop up window with all the smilies.
But that's a bit more work, so for rep points it might be more practical to just learn the most important/your favorit smilie codes .

np

I justed posted that we had all posted at the same time, but actually it was just you and nicky, mine was 10 minutes earlier (so I deleted my post )

so typically me...


btw: both of you explained it a little bit better than I did I have to admit...

Tot alle stormen zijn verstomd en er een nieuwe lente komt
En alles weer begint van voor af aan..."

Hi Majo!

I had actually read your first post, and just wanted to add the popup window thing (I had only found out a couple of days before - and only because I had left it open unintentionally ).
And Mark just beat me in posting .

Well, I didn't see Majo's post - I was writing mine, taking my sweet time about it (too much, apparently - more than 10 minutes ??? ), so I don't think I beat you, nicky

I'm sooooo slow in posting - I don't know how you guys do it.

PS: you don't know Barrie, Majo? Aahh... ask Angèle. Or ask any other young "innocent" girl (or boy!) who wanders in NT and inadvertently bumps into the dude. For that matter - ask me. He tried to come on to me, too - can you imagine .

Anyway: as you're aiming to be a nun, you probably shouldn't know about such things.

Ever tried the "quick reply" box?

Anyway, I guess that's the reason most of your posts are so well constructed and thought through... - mine just tend to be short

Yes, but I don't like it.
It's ok for very short answers, I guess.

"Well constructed"... hmm ---

Perchance rep by different posters should be worth more than the same people "trading it"? The "variety" would more likely be a genuine reflection of the (perceived) quality of the actual posts. (Of course, I don't know if multiple ID's could be "auto-matched" by IP address to prevent "cheaters" from getting around this). Also, perhaps "big dots" could supercede the "lost count" little ones @ some point?

Well, the fact that you have to rep 20 other posters before you can rep someone again is already a limitation of "trading points".
And after all, it is not THAT important, is it? It's just part of the fun .

And moreover, Roger - it's not true.

If reps from different people would be worth more, then some people would fall spectacularly in the rankings (I'm pretty sure I know who ), but others (once called "reputation whores" - but "traders" would be a fairer word imo) would soar even higher.

If you have gathered all the support you can get from all over the board, you would definitely have a much wider range of supporters than people who have been relying on their friends only... let alone on the quality of their posts.
