Some of you may have noticed that a couple of our smileys stopped working, and were replaced by a large 'suspended' image. The reason for this is that some of the smileys are hosted on the personal accounts of some of the Admin team - whilst we have no issue in doing this, the terms and conditions of one or more of those hosting websites has changed, which means that a subscription would have to be paid by each member of the Admin team that have images hosted. Much as we love you all to bits, this is not something that is viable for us to do, so I have done some work to try and mitigate things as much as I possibly can, and that is as follows: Smileys have been split into a few more categories: The reason for doing so is two-fold; firstly, it should hopefully make it easier for you to find and use smileys. Secondly, the smileys that are likely to give us problems in the future are on the Weather, Garden & Animals and Miscellaneous tabs - if they do fall over, it allows us to handle the problem much faster and easier. Please rest assured that every effort is being made to make alternative arrangements for these, and the aim is for us to lose none of the smileys (or as few as possible). Testing Smileys Tab Here, I have added some smileys that are more up to date and will hopefully allow us all a bit more freedom of expression. I have endeavoured to get a decent mix, however there are a number of others available, and I appreciate that some of those chosen may not be to everyone's liking. As you know, the Admin team work on a fully open basis, and we always try to take the opinions of our members into account, so please leave some feedback here as to whether you like the new 'test' smileys, or not as the case may be. If there is a particular smiley that you really don't like - add it to your post, and tell us why you don't like it. If enough people say they don't like a smiley, it will disappear into the digital ether....... Also, if there is a particular type of smiley you would like to see, please give as good a description as you can, and I will try to come back with one or more options for us to try. Now don't be shy ladies and gents!
