Smilies

Is there a set of smilies that go with this forum and I just don't see it?

How are you adding little kitty faces and ears of corn and hearts to your posts?

Hugs, Sha

Hi Mackembabe I just realised what you meant when you sent me a reply the other day and asked how I put pictures on my email and posts because I hadn't put a picture on anything I thought you were mixing me up with someone else but you were actually meaning the emojis, now I can see clearly, sorry for ignoring it thought it was for someone else, hope you know how to use them now 😜😳☺️🌻X

No I don't I have emojis on my e-mail but how do I get them on here,

Please any help would be most welcome.

Love & Hugs

Hi they aren't actually on this site it depends on what device you are using if you use a smartphone the keypad pops up when you are about to type your post and next to the spacebar on the lefthand side there is a square with this face on it 😃 Press it and a whole range of different emojis come up. Its the same if you use a tablet or an ipad or i phone. I am not sure about laptops as I use a tablet. Hope this helps 🌻X

Hi Sharon

It generally depends upon what device you are working on.

If you have a standard laptop or desktop computer then probably not.

If you have a tablet or iPad they tend to be at the bottom of your keyboard to the left.

If you are on a smart phone or iPhone you should automatically have smilies known as "emoji's" near your keyboard.

If you need any more info please let me know.

There are ways to create ordinary smilies by just using the colon sign : and then a bracket ( right up close to it.

: ( = :(

: ) = :)

Have a try below if you wish.

Hope you're doing as well as you can be today.

Me? Are you asking me Lu?

I feel like sh*t. which is my best honest answer without going into too much detail.

Legs ache, leg wounds are weeping, lower back is killing me, I have spasms in my ribs and thighs muscles today. I always feel sick after I eat, I think my aches and pains have aches and pains of their own. :(

My belly is full of fluid [well, not FULL full, but retaining fluid] I have an appointment on Monday morning to talk about/learn about liver transplant and have my name added to the registry. Officially becoming one more sick person in need of a liver. The sad part of all of this is that someone has to die so someone else can live. I seem to be harboring a significant amount of guilt about this.

But thank you for asking. I gave you the highlights for todays pain, I'd say I am at a solid 7. And that is with pain medication.

Love & joy and gentle hugs,

~Sha

Do you have a smart phone?

Emoji's are not on the forum itself but on whatever device you are using.

Ok no worries. Take your time.

It should say somewhere on your phone what make it is.

It could be a Nokia?

Let me know when you're ready and I'll try to help xx

On my tablets there is a little black and white ☺which I press and masses of different emoji to chose from but I have tried everything in my laptop and nothing will come up😬. I love using the animal ones but hate it that you have two 🐱🐈 and three 🐶🐕🐩 but not a Badger. Some people text all their messages to each others in "emoji speak" but that would send me screwy but it is nice to puts a few into a message as it livens things up.x

.... and NO mermaid. The cheek of it! lol

To have emoji's on your laptop you need to download them.

How you doing my friend? xx

They should know is that a Blue Mermaid is the most important Emoji to have, what is wrong with those guys, lol?

Thanks for asking. Just popped the last antibiotic and still very tender but had a better night last night. The swelling has come down quite a bit to just a bit of puffiness and redness. 👄 Fingers crossed it doesn't rear it's ugly head over the weekend. See the dentist again later on Monday.x

Oh heavens my friend. It never rains for you does it.

Don't forget you can always call your emergency dentist over the weekend if you need to.

Get well soon.

I reckon I should permanently have an umbrella handy. My friend believes in reincarnation and reckons we are paying for misdemeanors in a previous life. If that is the case I must have been very wicked, lol.x

o i can't join in the fun as i have a lap top and a very elderly mobile phone! :( i can only do smiles and sad faces! lol. my son & daughter keep telling me to buy a new phone but mine isn't broken, its been slammed against a wall once when scroll button got stuck and it survived! i like the mobile with buttons x

Reply

Mine is a big standard mobile. I accidentally dropped it down the loo last year and thought she was sure to have died. Washed and dried her off and put her on top of one of the radiators wrapped in a fluffy flannel with those silica gel sachets laid on top. Two days later heard a little beep and three days later screen had dried out and she was working perfectly. My friend had a £700 smartphone nearly brand new, she did the same and it died and she had to claim on insurance for a new one.x
