    Why do we not have the use of smilies :) in our blogs?

    I may have missed seeing it...but if not, could we have a 'lady bug' smilie?

    Leave it to me... always wanting or needing something :!:

    Since no one has replied to this post, especially Frank, does that mean it was a dumb question to ask?

    There is no such thing as a dumb question. :)
    I read your first post and thought "hmm . . I wonder why . ."

    Nah :D Frank prob'ly just overlooked your question
    I'll bet he shows up with an answer, in just a bit.

    I don't know the whys - but since I'm extremely smiley dependent,
    I use smileys from my "personal collection" in my original blog posts
    ;) I keep a photobucket album full of the little guys . . .

    . . . but I don't think even those can be used in replies to blogs :-?
    so then I resort to the good old keyboard.:-}

    Not a dumb question KG, it is more for a technical reason that they are not there. Since I coded the blog software from scratch and I wanted to make it as lightweight and fast to develop as I could I omitted the smilies.

    Also I feel the forums are more suited for the smilies than blogs. I'd like new visitors not to get confused between the two features.

    Hope this answers your question,
    Frank
