    but some keyboard keys shortcuts are working like : and ) combined gives :)

    : and D gives :D

    I'm hesitant to say something now...hahaha....but...
    I'm not sure if notifications are working either.
    A couple people have quoted me and responded....
    but I didn't get a notification like I used to.....
  • vinlynvinlyn Colorado...for now Veteran
    And now that you bring the topic back up, my emoticons are still not working.

    But when I do the instructions & enclose it between colons, most of the time it doesn't work.

    So now that you've discovered my true identity, watch your step!

  • vinlynvinlyn Colorado...for now Veteran

    I agree with Dakini. Too much hassle and not always successful...and the emoticons are useful because they sort of give body language to a post...which can sure change the meaning and lighten things up.

  • anatamananataman Who needs a title? Where am I? Veteran

    I think @lincoln needs to address another issue! Give him time, learn patience

  • VastmindVastmind Memphis, TN Veteran

    When doing an @ to notify...make sure it matches the name exactly...capital letters, spaces, etc., otherwise it doesn't hit.

    Ok, last thing on a line or in message, smilies do not work unless enclosed in text of some sort. IF, however, you put text around them, even like .... ;) ..... you get a smilie, nice and neat. Lincoln is working on a bunch of stuff for folks.

    . :) .

  • VastmindVastmind Memphis, TN Veteran

    Smile, and pass it on ... :) ...

  • anatamananataman Who needs a title? Where am I? Veteran

    Got it ;) If you know what I mean

  • anatamananataman Who needs a title? Where am I? Veteran

    FYI I have a lowercase a not an A as in @anataman, but it still hit me with capitalisation lol - but really i'm not worthy of anything more...

  • VastmindVastmind Memphis, TN Veteran
    edited March 2014

    I know it's lowercase...I did it to show you. When someone does mine with lowercase i dont get notification. Did the notification say I mentioned you...or I said something in the thread? I could be wrong. Don't mind me .....

  • anatamananataman Who needs a title? Where am I? Veteran

    No just checked it out - I was not notified by the capitalisation. Just made aware by your comment @Vastmind or @vastmind;) !

  • LincLinc Community Instigator Detroit Moderator

    It should be case-insensitive. What won't notify you is if they mess up and then edit it to correct it.

    We have some new smilies! And they all work! Not all of them are in the dropdown list so try out the auto-complete to find more. :relieved:

    Cool @Linc‌
    Appreciate the new formatting bar and emoticons. Tried to give you a couple of stars from pull down menu? :D

    (*) Asterisk between parens get you a star.

  • LincLinc Community Instigator Detroit Moderator

    In Markdown, surrounding something in asterisks means italics. That means no double stars for you :) One per serving.

  • :'( Where's the mullet? ah impermanence you old friend!

  • LincLinc Community Instigator Detroit Moderator

    I can bring back requested ones as long as they don't duplicate the news ones. Like, I don't need 2 versions of :) for instance.

  • federicafederica seeker of the clear blue sky Its better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt Moderator

    @Linc, sorry, but as an aside, I have this at the bottom of my screen....?

    Debug Trace
    Info FormattedMessage: Invalid transient key for federica.

    The bottom line of which, changes according to the thread I am currently looking at.

    And where's the 'quote' facility....?

  • dhammachickdhammachick crazy Aussie BUJU Sydney, Australia Veteran

    Yes I'm missing the quote option too. @Linc‌ is it possible to bring back the namaste emoticon please?

    Boy, yet another learning curve to negotiate.... :s (We need a :rolleyes: )

    OK, what does 'spoiler' do?

  • federicafederica seeker of the clear blue sky Its better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt Moderator

    Also, @Linc, say you're on the general discussions index page.
    You click on a thread. You access said thread.
    You read, or comment, but the 'discussions' option, on the top bar, is no longer available. You get 'newbuddhist' and the sub-forum you're in.
    So to go back to the discussions page, you have to take whatever circuitous rout you choose.

    I fixed the breadcrumbs now :)

    BUt the emoticons are so boring!

    @Linc did say he could add to them, providing they don't duplicate what we now have.

    OK, I'd like a slaphead'
    'bang head against wall'
    'rolleyes'
    'no, no, no, no, no'......

    Oh, and one wielding a AK47, with a cigar in its mouth. >:)

    but that's optional.... :D

    There are so many to choose from, though...
    :dizzy_face:
    :cold_sweat:

    For a full selection, type a colon : followed immediately by an upper-case letter of the alphabet.

    :R brings up 'relieved', 'relaxed' and 'rage'.

    :SS brings up all manner of kissing ones...

  • anatamananataman Who needs a title? Where am I? Veteran

    Tried coloning and using old terms - but, well, the current set of images lacks the imagination of a bygone NB age!

    lol

  • vinlynvinlyn Colorado...for now Veteran

    Thank you, Lincoln, for fixing the emoticons!!!

  • OH NO! We've lost our old collection of emoticons? No, Linc, ya gotta bring 'em back! Some of 'em were so cool! AND: we still don't have a praying-hands one, you know, for "Namaste", or any Buddhist gesture of gratitude, or whatever. And we need a rolling-on-the-floor-laughing one. And the "om" one was a good one. There were so many good ones. I liked the little guy who would get hopping mad, waving his little fists around. Can't you bring back the oldies but goodies? What about the thumbs-up one? Some of those were ESSENTIAL!

    C'mon, Linc.... ?

    Existence sure is Dukkha. Everything is temporary. Impermanency is part of life. Have to give up attachments and ye Olde emoticons . . . ;)
