A few new smilies.....

Post by jtaylor » Sat Oct 21, 2006 7:44 pm

I've added a few new smilies/emoticons, one of which is quite appropriate if anyone fancies using it?!?

Here they are:-

If you have any particular favourites of your own, let me know and PM me a link and I'll try to add them when I get a minute....

People who post for the sake of building up their posts. Remind you of anyone?

100% correct.

Google is a remarkable - many questions can be answered............simply searching for "what is a post whore" returns:-
A post whore is somebody who posts mostly meaningless messages consisting of one word or just emoticons. They have an unsaid ability to magically appear in any thread at any given time to add crucial arguements to the debate at hand. These said crucial arguements include ground-breaking conjectures such as "what," "oh," or a curiously little smilie who is blue, and yet neither happy nor sad.

(Shame about the spelling thought.)



There is also a new "rank" for those who gain this accolade of "post whore". Un-used yet, but tends to be a bit of a downer when they never reach their "buttons".......and simply end up as a "post whore" instead......?!??

And this, somewhat more apt, definition:-
Someone who posts on an online forum just for the sake of posting. He or she doesn't have to have any relevant or complete thought to post. As long as the post count goes up, he or she is happy.
And now to bed....
