Only 2 smileys per post?

Unread postby bossel » Thu Sep 04, 2008 10:03 pm

I just submitted an answer to the 'rights on photos' in this forum, and it was rejected because it contained 3 smileys :shock: There was an error message 'only 2 smileys per post are allowed'. Can we raise this to 5 or make it dependend on the length of the post? :|

I may alter it but it was put in place to discourage Sonolta from excessive visual hysterics in posts...

I'm tempted to use more than two smileys just because you said that!

Impressive: you are still here...
I think I can not manage rejection this way -even if I did a lot of progress in this field. Don't you want to be loved?

Although I've been using email and newsgroups since they were invented, I've only recently started using web forums like this one. I was under the impression that they were rather limited in the way they could handle discussions. I had no idea you could do something as sophisticated as "talk behind someone's back"!

How is this done?

The answer to your question is in my previous post.

Oh dear, I have tended to keep away from forums because of the way folk just don't seem to hold the basic courtesies of communication and tend to insult others so freely.
I had hoped this would be the same but I fear not from reading several threads. This is a great shame because there is much that anyone of whatever level of knowledge and experience can learn from postings.
It is easy to write things which are uncomplimentary on these forums and which, generally, would not be said in the same manner in a face to face conversation.
A little common courtesy to each other does not go amiss and really doesn't do any harm.
We all get bees in our bonnets and sometimes fly off the handle but a little delay in typing a reply associated with some forethought and consideration really can be quite beneficial.
I hate arguments and discourtesies from whatever source - but, then, I am a white haired, white bearded old crumbly from a previous generation! :D :lol:

Thank you Sonalta.
You prove my point and I will not be visiting again.
