  • Trusting That This Spot May Be Proper For (Again) Submitting A Request... (??)

    Greetings to All, and to Our I.T. Mods,

    Some Time...now having passed... and our new system now being
    the more settled... may I ask again... is it possible... for these new
    BRIGHT YELLOW SMILEY FACES .... to be avoided...and the old
    colon : and parentheses ) be reinstated... if the writer wishes... and
    so make happen by clicking somewhere on the page??

    If possible... this would be greatly appreciated... as I continue to
    find those new ones... simply garish... and the Old Style... does
    and indeed... readily convey the intended thought.

    Many thanks.

    Regards,

    Pip01

    Pip, thank you for sharing your thoughts. This is a style issue. I suspect most people prefer the clarity of the modern emoji over the old school keyboard version. Please don’t take this the wrong way, but for example, I know some (many?) members don’t like sentences artificially shortened (looks odd on mobile devices) and an excess use of elipses, but that’s how you like to format your posts and we’re not going to force you to change. Deep breath, accept, and move on. We’ll all get used to the various changes.

      Andrew,

      Many thanks!!... and content to move along with the now
      new major changes... which I like!!... and with our also
      now new... emoji-based... method of inferring personal
      feelings (Good, Bad, Confused, etc.) ... to which I shall...
      ... perhaps... over Time...become the more accustomed...

      All the Best!!... to You and Our Other Mods,

        Greetings to Andrew, and to All,

        Having now seen one of our members employ a
        slightly different form... of the old colon/parenthesis
        smiley face... and it not... having been changed into
        the yellow orb... I tried it... and it works!!

        And for all practical purposes... almost as good!! :-)
